High-quality wall scroll print of my tribute to the famous Onna Bugeisha (female samurai) of the Genpai War, Tomoe Gozen.
It is said that she defeated and collected the heads of 7 mounted warriors. Beautifully badass.

"FOOD, FIGHT, FU--"

The 3 "F"s being the 3 elements necessary to living a happy live: Food, Fight, and... well, you could probably figure it out.
It was during the Genpei War that Gozen gained her fame both for her beauty and fighting skills. She was appointed by Lord Kiso no Yoshinaka as his leading commander. During that time, she defeated and collected the heads of 7 mounted warriors. In another battle she led Kiso’s cavalry to victory. And in a later, more impossible battle she was one of only five of Kiso’s warriors who survived. Yeah. Beautifully badass. I chose to draw her as I was working up my own warrior mentality in the days leading up to my first MMA fight! Imagining her in various scenarios, poses, filled me with the fire I need to be inside that cage. I think it worked; as it turned out my first fight also was my first beheading. I hope Tomoe is proud.
