:iconmeadowbreeze: "Chief Thunderhooves & Strongheart"

i always saw them as father and daughter, and that she'll be the leader when she's older.

When I first saw Cheif Thunderhooves in the show, he was everything I admired in an Indian Cheif: strong, dignified, yet he had heart of gold. You captured these traits perfectly in this piece. The same goes for Little Strongheart, as you captured her fierce determination and her gentle nature all at once. I'll admit, both of them look a little like typical Native Americans that you'd see in any kid show in this, but there's only so much you could do given their designs from the show, so I'll not be harsh on originality. Overall, this is a great rendition from animal to human. You captured these two great characters with all the dignity they deserve. Excellent work!

It's a steryotypical view of Native Americans.

This isn't racist unless you say it is. For all we know, they're Blackfoot, or Dakota Sioux, or Cheyenne, or Crow, or Plains Cree, or any other tribe who wore/wears ceremonial headdresses. If anything, aren't you the racist one for seeing this as racist?

I just think that it feels better for them to appear so much if they are going to be so sterotypical.

"As the river cuts his path
Though the river's proud and strong
He will choose the smoothest course
That's why rivers live so long
They're steady...
As the steady beating drum"

Looks great. I like that you kept the dignity of the father and daughter, perhaps increasing it somewhat. A very well done shift from anthromorphic to human.

It's very beautiful artwork! I don't know if I would be the best critiquer, since I am not familiar with what makes art "good" or "bad", but I can offer my opinion. I hope people take an example from you, there isn't nearly enough Strongheart fanart!
