Spirit animal by Yuuza Spirit animal by Yuuza

:bulletblue:FAQ:bulletblue:TUMBLR:bulletblue:FACEBOOK:bulletblue:



I was inspired by the belief that everyone has an animal spirit and well in the chinese zodiac i'm a fire tiger! :la:
but i was also inspired by the movie 'Life of PI'

I hope you like this, recently i have been gravitating towards realism but that doesn't mean i don't like anime art anymore. I can draw in both styles and i will never stop drawing in an anime style, because it's a style i like a lot :la:
many people say you can't evolve from anime to anything, that it's a dead-end style but that's just a load of bull :lmao:

Time: 5 hours
Tools: Paint Tool Sai, here are my brush settings

other wallpapers from me

how do you meat your totem through meditation?

Silwany Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014  Student
It's rather simple, a shaman guided me the first time and I did it too for a few friends (and more to come...). You do some yoga exercises first to relax the body entirely (imagine breathing in through your left nostril, then breathing out through your right nostril etc, breathing in and out through the centre of your forehead... or a sun of gold honey like warmth melting on you). Then, you'll walk in the woods (imagination, always) and will find a giant tree. You'll go inside and walk down the ten wooden stairs. Each step, a deep gigantic breath (you have to be so relaxed you'll forget your body and get out of the material side of life completely). Once down the stairs, you'll open a second door and get inside a field, still in the forest. Then, you'll sit and ask for your totem animal to come to you.
Well, this is a shortened version, but, when the guide speaks to the traveler, she gives a lot of informations and details about the forest, the light and others sensations that help the traveler to see better. Ahah, it is easier than it seems, explained like that...

Hm yeah. That's too bad. But maybe you'll find the text of this meditation in your langage (i'm french). just memorize it well enough to close your eyes and do the journey on your own. You can do it. Just keep in mind one detail : always trust your gut feeling and first thing coming is the right one. :)

My mother is a tiger. I'm an earth rabbit. In Vietnamese zodiac, it's pretty much the same as the Chinese zodiac except for the rabbit, the rabbit is the cat instead. This is because Vietnamese farmers saw no use for rabbits. I love this picture too! It's very beautiful! Even though I'm a rabbit/cat, I still feel connected to the tiger. :)

haha they saw no use for rabbits and replaced with a cat XDDD that's kind of funny
well you eat rabbits so i guess they are of some use? :) but the meaning of rabit in the chinese zodiac is that of kindness i think?

:iconlunaravenstar:
LunaRavenstar Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014
Haha yes it is.
I think that's its meaning. Friendly/kind. It has Lunar energies as well.
What was the Tigers meaning?
