Heeeeck yeah, powerful older women! 👀 I honestly love everything about this: The ease with which she commands the fire (years of experience), the fact that she’s higher up the stairs than the viewer, her expression of “you’re not the first to challenge me, and you’re not the last.” And of course, her clothes look rad. This is a powerful woman indeed!
Jaya is a Magic: The Gathering character, and her other card variations are also very good. I’m hoping Wizards of the Coast and their artists continue making badass ladies like this. And check out the artist’s portfolio for some Good Art, including a Hot Lion Man.
