(Old drawing that I still like)

In a valiant effort to save the man she loves from a brutal execution, an African jungle huntress takes on a Tyrannosaurus rex with her knife.

I got the idea for this picture after looking at some pulpy adventure art that featured white male heroes rescuing damsels in distress (also white) from sacrificial rituals in exotic lands. I thought to myself, "what if it was a native black woman rescuing the white male lead instead?" As much as the jungle adventure genre appeals to me, it's even cooler when you get to subvert the old bothersome tropes.
