These BADASS Illustrations Of Female Actors Will Leave You Amazed!

July 22, 2016 | by Sanjana Subramanian

Gone are the days when actresses were made to stand by (or behind) the hero as he would fight the bad guys. Gone are the times when all actresses would do was flutter their lashes and avert the gazes of men. In today’s day, like Beyoncé said, women are pretty much running the world! They don’t need the heroes to do the fighting. Oh no! They can get their hands dirty too, thank you very much!

The world has begun to truly appreciate women in every field of work instead of underestimating them. This especially rings true in the movie business. Be it Kangana Ranaut or Meryl Streep, actresses around the world are performing roles and taking up films that define who they truly are — strong women, with spines of steel.

And so 21-year-old illustrator Shivani Gorle of Mumbai decided to pay a tribute to these Queens On Screen, as she calls them, through some kickass illustrations. She wanted to paint women as being free, independent, and completely sure of themselves. They don’t need anybody’s approval and they’re proud of who they are. Yes, that’s exactly how women should be and her portrayal of them through these illustrations is truly commendable.

Enough talking — we’ll let the illustrations speak for themselves!
