Pascarelli: ‘Jungle Catfight’. As concerns titles, this one is obviously not his. There are times when I take liberties in titling Daniel’s work, and this is one of them; but I take no liberty in admiring his artistic genius. Although this could well be the beginning of a serious knockdown/dragout naked katfight, it won’t, and Daniel lets the viewer know it. This is an example of his playful tongue-in-cheek humor. These two jungle cats are about to determine who is the alpha female feline here. The full name of the artist who did this rendering is Daniel Omar Pascarelli, which is how he wants me to write out the checks I sent to him for commissioned works. In the past I only included one black and white (B&W) illustration of his works on my site, all the rest were in color. Now, in this series that I am presenting of his works, which I’m going to upload at the rate of one per week, they will alternate between B&W and color, or how he spells it – The British way: ‘Colour’. And here is one of the black and white ones. Since he left New York to move back to his native Argentina, I guess he can spell that word any way he wants. Although he is regarded as a ‘Fantasy Artist’, I consider Pascarelli as the finest ‘Catfight’ artist ever. He can create women who are downright menacing – Of which this rendering is a prime example, although in a light-hearted sort of way. However he also can display at the same time his tongue-in-cheek humor in his catfights, which is coupled with terrific painting ability, in both color and detail. Needless to say I consider Daniel in that limited pantheon of fantasy painters, such as: Frazetta, Vallejo, and Achilleos. As concerns the ‘DA’ censors, they contacted me back in September 2009 asking for written confirmation of his permission for me to display his works, in which I complied. This issue of copyrights has always been a sore point with a lot of members of Deviant Art who upload artworks. But there are serious legal and financial penalties that the ‘DA’ Company can be subjected to if they do not show due diligence. I too chafe under these rules, but I understand and comply. Because of the world-wide economy, the art market is rather depressed; but luckily for all of us, Daniel is now accepting painting commissions from private individuals.

Another one for my collection.
I am drowning in that description. Too many words!!
As I look at this thrilling artwork I see it as Rulah taming Sheena. First physically and now sexually. Rulah will now rule the jungle! Sheena her slave in every way.
Wow, what an imagination. I never looked at it this way. Nor gave names to them. But I think you may be spot on. Drew
Thanks. The blonde jungle queen has that expression of defeat, of being dethroned. Sheena, once so haughty, untamed has met the Alpha Cat and her name is Rulah! For me there is nothing more exciting than a wild jungle catfight. The particpants may vary and that's ok, but seeing Sheena tamed is always a favorite.
