You want to know how I got my cutie mark?

A famous explorer once said, "The extraordinary is in what we do, not who we are."

I'd finally set out make my mark, to find adventure.

But instead, adventure found me. I was a blank flank well into my teenage years as a young explorer. Fresh from the academy and in search of lost relics, I journeyed to an island. Before anchoring at bay, the ship was cloven in two by an unforeseen storm leaving me separated from any other survivors and washed ashore.

In our darkest moments, when life flashes before us, we find something, something that keeps us going, someting that pushes us.

I had to endure both physical and emotional torture in order to survive the island. But when all seemed lost, I found a truth.

And I knew what I must become.

Thank you for a whopping 146 favourites on my previous Daring Do wallpaper! [link]

I have never had such an overwhelming response to my work before, and it's the first time any of my works hit more than 100 favs, so it's a really big milestone for me!

As thanks, here's another gritty Daring Do wallpaper, this time showing us how she got here.

I'm guessing both pieces are /mildly/ inspired by the new Tomb Raider reboot?

Loving the dirty style. I actually really wanna see more of this. Like a series.

Though I might be biased seeing as I love Uncharted, Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones...

And The jungle "burned map" style font is based on all those things I keep imagining some Dead Island mixed in...

Too many video games, too much bias O.o

Thank you :)
A series, you say? Well, I do have a couple more ideas in my head, but they would take a while to implement due to exams and such, but do look out for them a few weeks from now.

Ok there are a few things i gotta say before i must go...

What i loved about it... -->
1. I absolutely love the background 100 % <3
2. The Daring Do in the picture works perfectly with the "sorta" blurry background.
3. The font used in the piece works perfectly together with the rest of the colors and sizes.
4. The sun light effect coming from the sunrise side of the picture gives the piece a lovely calmfull feeling... or the "The aftermath feeling" as i would say it.

What i didn't like... -->
1. The head of Daring Do, it just feel so unnatural to me. :/
2. I have nothing against you putting your name in the bottom right corner of a brilliant masterpiece, but it would not hurt anyone if the font would match up to the rest of the brilliant font used in the piece ;D

Overall i'd say you have managed to make an amazing piece of art that i will defiantly save and add to my gallery of brilliant wallpapers.

Cheers for sharing your talent with the rest of the community :salute:

Is it just me, or does the style that Do was done in look like the official Wind Waker art?

DestinyFreedom Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, you could say that. The lineart was done on paper with pencils, so I would think there is this 'sketchy' quality about it. Just looked up Wind Waker, and I can see why you would draw parallels between this and that :P
