Continuing with my idea of giving each of my Halloween pictures some closure, here I show you how I’d see the resolution to Daring Do’s fall you saw a couple of days ago over here [link]
Out of all the ones I made this is probably the one people noticed the least, but to me this is probably the one I like the most. I think I had a lot of fun drawing Daring in distress as she falls to her doom, not knowing what will happen to her. But you know, I know, we all know, that she is a character based on Indiana Jones, and Indy was based on those heroes that kids from the 40’s saw in their TV serials. You know there will always be a vine, a giant spider web, a lake, a mattress or a spring board ready to save the heroine’s life. That’s why we like adventure, because we know that no matter how rough it is for the protagonist, she will always pull through (If you see the previous picture, you will know how much I love Daring and how I explain that in the comments).
It’s always situations like these where we realize the things we have. Daring here has a lot of problems she better deal with soon, or else she won’t be able to tell the story to anyone. She’s bruised, she’s injured, she has a broken wing, and I am pretty sure her heart is racing at the speed of light. But she’s alive, and she can pull through that because nothing can stop her. When we find ourselves hanging on the edge of a cliff, or over a void, we have to consider what we still have, and make the best use of it.
