_The Angry Mother_ by Aikya _The Angry Mother_ by Aikya
My tribute to the 14 wolf pups and countless other wildlife who lost their lives the barbaric programs by Sarah Palin. [link]

Inspired to do this by ~yuumei and =AlectorFencer
Check out this picture. [link]

Being a US citizen, I feel even more responsible for the animal rights that take place in my country.
I've told my friends, that if McCain becomes president and somehow dies, causing that crazy bitch to come into office, I will seriously, consider moving out of the country...

You can help stop this by donating or signing a petition [link] and yes, it does work. The Defenders of Wildlife and other organizations like the Sierra Club have successfully sued and won numerous court cases against the government for animal cruelty.

Mediums used: HB 2B pencils on drawing paper.

A gorgeous piece, and I totally agree with your message. Even though I don't live in the US, I fear for the country's future if McCain gets voted in. IMO he is senile as it is, even it's an even scarier thought that Sarah Palin would be the most powerful person in the world if McCain dies (which he likely will)

That's what I joke about the most-McCain gets into office and kicks the bucket! I know that's kinda immature, but seriously! We sometimes have to think worse case scenario-I can't imagine having his VP as P. XD That, would be a worse case scenario!

Like every time I hear those commercials about the election, "I'm John McCain, and I approve this...*dies*" I have to get creative. :rofl: What if he did die?

I can see Sarah running in with a shotgun after he keels over going, "Gimme that damn power! And while I'm at it I wanna kill a moose and skin it!!!"

XD

amazing piece. i like the darker black liquid flowing out of the wolf -- almost like tears of blood, i feel.

and yeah, i hate palin for allowing the murder of wolves from a helicopter.

This picture shows such a strong message. You really created sadness and anger in this drawing. I really hope that those who killed the wolves will pay for it one day. Not with money but with other personal things.

I saw yuumei's drawing too :( it's so sad what happened to the poor puppies.

I like how your depiction is a little different though. It looks like it's from the parents' point of view rather than the actual puppies.

You're right-I tried to approach this from the parent's point of view. You cannot forget the horror that mother must be feeling. I can't imagine how confused she must be, all of the mothers who lost their pups!

really like how it's more tonal work than line work (eyes/tears) the expression suits perfectly well with the message behind it, she looks like she's asking for help with those wanting eyes.


it's been a while since I've been on DA but I remember your work, and you have progressed so well, looking forward to more!! (man, I wish I had a subbie again)

I know. Palin's the main difference between McCain and Obama at this point. They really messed up when they chose a conservative good-old-girl to play the "Hey look everybody we're not chauvenists and we have a VP who represents change!" card. And of course it doesn't help that she's in the middle of a few scandals, as well as alienating herself from the voters she wants to win over.

Why would she do that? That is just cruel........and heartbreaking. Those poor puppies. TT_TT I can see that sorrow and anger in the wolfs face too. You rendered that beautifully. How cruel. I think she thinks animals can't feel.

a beautiful peice. i'm already working on a peice now because if this news. i just... i can't believe it. 14... it's making me cry. how could any human commit such savage actions on a creature that existed before the land was even divided into countries?...it makes me scream. WE are the invaders. We are the problem. now mothers mourning cry will never be heard, as she was killed before her pups.

amazing work.

I can't watch videos on my dialup connection, what's it all about?? :?

I'm already leery of Palin for plenty of other reasons.

On the art, I love the title since it kind of reminds me of a wolf character of mine. I like your smooth style...I can't really think of another word to describe it. The way the blood/tears flow in with the rest of it.

ETA--ah...I read the note on the other deviation. No explanation necessary.
