My first digitally painted dapple grey ever! I could fix the details of this painting forever but I feel too tired haha.. So I guess I could call this finished now! The title is borrowed from System of a Down because those lyrics inspired me a lot for some reason. And you don't really wanna know how many times I redid the field before I was happy.. :faint:

I hope you like this piece and thanks for taking a look!

Nice work! I would love to have the 18 hours to do something like this...but I think you are way better than me, when it comes to the mane and the tail...really incredibly detailed perfectly worked hair that is. I only mislike the fur on his/her rear and breast as it does not look right (kind of too long, if you know what I mean).

Anyway great work :)

Another fantastic piece! You add a definition to the markings that the reference lacks that makes it look so ethereal and majestic! :love:
