No matter how young or how old you are, you should never give up on your dreams or hopes, for they will never give up on you.

Gifty-poo for my buddy *whirl-wind
Consider it an early Christmas present. :hug:

The character featured in this picture is her gorgeous mare Leila. I really loved her design, and colour scheme...and everything else about her, so I couldn't resist drawing her. :heart:

I thought I'd go for a spacescape for this picture, since I've been wanting to do another one for a while now and fits the message of the picture, I should add that every single star on this was done painstakingly by me! I'm glad I didn't use a photoshop brush set to make them, it makes the result seem so much more satisfying.
The mountains were such a pain too, but only cause they take so long to shade. :doh:

Oh, and the wings...let me say first that wings are one of my biggest enemies when it comes to art, I have tried yet another technique for doing wings, every single picture in my gallery uses a different technique, this one any good?

A BIG thank you to my friend Ashley (=CricketWings) for her fabulous mane tutorial, without that tutorial the mane would have turned out very crappy indeed. :XD:

Picture is about 25% of its actual size, Whirl, if you want it full sized I'd be happy to send you it. :)
Enjoy, buddy. :hug:
