This piece of Shunran fan art with the completed cat tutorial hosted by the DeviantArt team is dedicated to Regalore and Mn27 who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, I wish you a lot of love, joy, and happiness on your very special days and 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. Let Shunran incorporate her jungle woman charms to entice each and every one of you, for she has a sleek physique, loads of vivacity, and an astounding amount of agility in her arsenal.
The African jungle, specifically The Temple of the Animal Gods, is indubitably full of surprises, especially the ones that whisk you away from all mortal coils. As you enter a light teal chamber, you are invited by a scent of lavender, roses, gardenias, dandelions, and daffodils. All of your senses are completely heightened by those scents while feeling a sense of calmness before the storm. You are even greeted by statues of cats on top of each other, forming a pillar, with the bronze one at the bottom, the silver one at the middle, and the gold one at the top. A 34-year-old woman with long auburn hair, two flowers on the left and right sides of her hair, and a sleek physique that is simultaneously youthful and ethereal, giving Aphrodite, Persephone, and Helen of Troy a run for their money when it comes to sheer beauty, elegance, and gorgeousness. She notices your presence and lets out a slight chuckle. She raises her well-toned arms, flexes her biceps, and emits a huge roar, which is large enough to frighten the mightiest of lions, tigers, jaguars, and panthers. Even Shere Khan, Scar, Zira, and Sabor would applaud her for letting out a mighty roar. She is Shunran the peacekeeper of the jungle, the surrogate daughter of Toga the chief of the jungle, surrogate younger sister of Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ayame, biological younger sister of Shuran, and, most importantly, Ginta’s most beloved, cherished, esteemed, and precious wife. Shunran’s leopard-skin brassiere does show a fair amount of skin, but it also accentuates her free spirit, mischievousness, resilience, athleticism, speed, agility, and strength.
Shunran’s superb strength, astounding agility, amazing athleticism, super speed, and stylish stamina are the attributes that make her shine like the brightest of diamonds because of how excellently they pair up with her enthusiasm, lovability, and vivacity for life. Jane Porter and Ann Darrow would marvel at her sheer beauty and lynx-like reflexes. Queen La of Opar would love to challenge Shunran in a series of Muay Thai, wrestling, kickboxing, and boxing matches, with Shunran coming out on top. Aphrodite, Hera, Helen of Troy, Demeter, and Persephone would endeavour to have beauty pageants with Shunran by virtue of their external and internal gorgeousness, charisma, and exuberance. Shunran would even find herself training in combat with Athena and hunting with Artemis. Shanna, Sheena, and Jana of the Jungle would love to compete with Shunran in vine-swinging, swimming, wrestling, marathon running, and testing each others’ strength and agility. She could even outrun any cheetah, leopard, and jaguar thanks to her fantastic speed that could also give any triathlete a run for their money. Therefore, Shunran is the complete package when it comes to beauty, brawn, and brain to the point where she is a well-rounded warrior woman.
As peacekeeper of the jungle, Shunran does her best to prevent animosity encroaching in the jungle and protects those who are disenfranchised. Therefore, she is always there for her family and will never abandon them.
Shunran is really ecstatic to be Ginta’s wife as much as she is ecstatic to be a mother to seven sons and seven daughters. While she is happy to see that their sons have grown up to be gallant, loyal, and strong gentlemen, she is just as overjoyed to see their daughters have grown up to clever, crafty, resilient young women who never surrender without a fight. 19-year-old triplet daughters Sakura, Sunako, and Setsuko are jungle goddesses known for their beauty and appeal. 18-year-old twin daughters Sayaka and Sora are gorgeous jungle maidens who protect the jungle from all harm. 17-year-old twin daughters Kokoro and Katsuho are enthusiastic jungle maidens who fill their home with happiness and joy. Shunran is so proud to see her daughters grow up to be appreciative, loving, and protective young women.
Shunran’s motherly duties aside, she has a respectful sibling bond with Sesshoumaru because of the many occasions they meditate, practice yoga, and practice various martial arts such as judo, jujitsu, and kickboxing. Shuran has also helped her become physically stronger and is always there to protect his favourite little sister from all harm, which she is very grateful for. Inuyasha is the super strong big brother figure she is thankful having in her life, as he helps Shunran become stronger and more valorous as an individual, and she helps Inuyasha get in touch with his more sensitive side. Shunran might have had a crush on Hakkaku when she was a lot younger, but she still cherishes him as a lovingly appreciative brother-in-law. Shunran considers Ginta as her only reason for living, for the unconditional love they provide each other signifies that there is nobody else in the world they would rather be than with each other. Their relationship is a great combination of faithfulness and warm intimacy. Where Ayame is concerned, she and Shunran are soul sisters through and through because of how much they have inspired each other to be strong, independent, and courageous women with the world at their feet. Shunran is absolutely grateful to have Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Ayame in her life.
Shunran’s feistiness, charm, and lovability as the peacekeeper of the jungle should never go unnoticed. She radiates with hope, charisma, and optimism to the point where she knows how to light up the jungle really well.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next Inuvember submission. Take care, stay safe, and Shunran is always dependable to keep the peace in the jungle, everybody.
