Hello again!
With all the Christmas Calendar activity going on, I've entered a creative spree and thanks to Egwene (to whom I dedicate this image) I went the extra mile and painted more than I had hoped for :p Thanks for the support, girl!

These two depicted here are from FoD and I really really really loved their story. If the second book isn't delayed any longer, the season for the great reread should be open by now XD.

Hope you like!

PS: This took about 13 hours (and it's still not done) and despite all the reference, I've still the vaguest idea of how horse anatomy works.

It looks great, you've got talent! Will have to do a reread of FoD, I almost forgot about these 2 characters.

I kinda love it when D'rek unleashes her nerd wrath, as I knew she would here. Sorry innocent bystanders, but someone's gotta be the kindling.

Curses! I was gonna draw those two sometime soon, too, 'cause I love them as well :rolleyes:

Great image, I particularly like the colours/atmosphere :p

Beautiful, is the best word, I think :rolleyes: :p

Do not thank me, Paradanmellow - thank you, is my sentiment. I am so grateful that you and everyone else came up with such an amazing selection of images for the calendar. Each and everyone different and amazing. I would not be able to chose a favourite if my life depended on it.

I hope you will let us have this one for the Wiki as well when it is finished.

Now that you have done all that research into horses... what about a Jhag horse next :p

Mah pleasure.
I don't know if I'll finish this very soon - I don't like refining things too much cause I lose interest (maybe in a few years?)
A Jhag horse? Isn't it just a horse but bigger? :p

Would you mind if we uploaded the current sketch to the Wiki - it looks pretty amazing as it is!?! You can replace it with updated versions at any time :D
