This piece of Ginta fan art with the completed landscape tutorial hosted by the DeviantArt team is dedicated to Citsitra-Blue, lilyrjensen, and xhiale who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, I wish you a lot of love, joy, and prosperity in your lives as artists and as people. Furthermore, this is my entry for this year’s Red Ribbon Reviewers’ submissions as well as this year’s Inuvember submission. Black Friday has a good deal when Ginta is in his jungle man fearlessness complete with a muscular body, heaps of virile charm, loads of masculine charisma, and astounding athleticism.
Treading the African jungle, especially within The Temple of the Animal Gods’ hallowed halls, brings a multitude of interesting surprises. As you enter a chamber with the upper part and the ceiling of sky blue, you see gold mountains to accentuate the gold floor, a lake of silver, and fourteen bronze Acacia trees. It almost makes you think that you have been transported into a version of Nirvana where you can see all these coming to full fruition. You can already tell that this jungle warrior is in touch with nature, the outside world, and his surprisingly artistic side. A man approaching 38 years of age with dark grey hair while the top part of is hair is jet black and a muscularly chiseled body that can make Adonis, Narcissus, Apollo, Hermes, and even Heracles and Theseus green with boundless envy. He motions you to come forward. He raises his toned arms, flexes his tremendous biceps, and lets out an overpowering roar that can make the bravest of lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, panthers, and jaguars retreat in fear. He is Ginta the captain of the guard of the jungle, surrogate son of Toga the chief of the jungle, younger surrogate brother of Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, and Ayame, younger biological brother of Hakkaku by nine months, and the most loyal, lovable, and endearing husband to Shunran. Appearing in a leopard-skin loincloth not only emphasises Ginta’s magnificently well-toned, muscular, athletic physique, but it also stresses the fact that his handsomeness, charm, and affability are indubitably coupled by his strength, endurance, and fierceness.
Ginta’s well-toned muscles, fine athleticism, Apollo-like handsomeness, and adorable dimples are the notable physical characteristics that define him as a jungle warrior lord. George of the Jungle would find his hilarity, amicability, and affability absolutely laudable to the point where they become fast friends. John Carter would invite Ginta to spar with him, as they would surprise each other with their speed, strength, and endurance in hand-to-hand combat. Malb’yat, Kaanga, Ki-gor, and Maugli would endeavour to invite Ginta for a bit of a bench-pressing contest to see whose strength can be contested, only for Ginta to pleasantly surprise them with how much endurance and strength he has in that lean yet muscular frame of his. Ginta could even outrun Hermes, as his speed can rival any track star. Therefore, Ginta’s physical strength and charismatic attitude are absolute pluses in any jungle lord’s and/or jungle king’ books.
As the jungle’s captain of the guard, Ginta is responsible for rallying the troops for battle against invaders and ensuring strength in numbers. He knows fully well that he cannot defeat enemies alone, even with his prodigious strength, athleticism, and endurance. In fact, with Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Ayame, Shuran, Hakkaku, and Shunran by his side, anything is possible.
Being blissfully married to Shunran has also made him a proud, gregarious, and grateful father to seven sons and seven daughters. All of his seven sons have grown up to be charming, handsome, powerful, and chivalrous warriors who not only know how to charm the ladies but also protect their homes, families, and friends from all terrible harm. 23-year-old twin sons Minoru and Manabu are valorous warriors who put their muscular strength to great use to stop enemies. 22-year-old triplet sons Joichiro, Junichiro, and Takeru are dashing jungle cavaliers whose collective strength is enough to protect their family and friends from all harm. 21-year-old Sentaro is a handsome jungle lord the ladies desire and the men want to be. 20-year-old Jiraiya is an honourable jungle warrior who has a firm moral code backed up by his impressive combat prowess. Ginta’s most favourite activities to do with his sons are weightlifting, sparring in boxing and wrestling, and circuit training. Ginta is truly proud to see his sons grow up to be courageously strong heroes with hearts of gold.
Aside from Ginta’s fatherly duties, he shows a lot of respect and allegiance to Sesshoumaru because of the training he undergoes with him in judo, jujitsu, wrestling, kickboxing, and Pankration. He even enjoys having meditation sessions with Sesshoumaru, who Ginta is proud to call him his older brother for life. Shuran, Inuyasha, and Hakkaku have a superbly warm fraternal relationship with Ginta to the point where they are proud to be brothers forever, considering all the weightlifting, sparring in wrestling, kickboxing, boxing, and Pankration, and muscle comparisons they do. Extending their brotherly bond to Sesshoumaru, these five jungle men make the strongest of brothers. Ginta’s sibling-like relationship with Ayame demonstrates solidarity and boundless understanding of each others’ strengths and weaknesses as individuals. Where Shunran is concerned, there is nobody on this earth that he would rather be than her because of how much they cherish each other with all of their being. Ginta’s relationships with his brothers, surrogate younger sister, and wife demonstrate solidarity, interpersonal strength, and unconditional love.
Ginta’s charm, strength, and stamina as the captain of the guard of the jungle are worthy of aspiration and emulation. He has passed down his greatest attributes to his sons who have emulated their father really well.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next Inuvember submission. Take care, stay safe, and you can always rely on Ginta to keep you safe from danger, everybody.
