Type: Book illustration Book: The Saga of Eruûne Chapter: Fergot. Quote/Scene: 'Its eyes were dark and deep, mirroring Shikaä itself: tangled branches, luminous orchids, shining fireflies and rows of trees, all shrouded by a lace of leaves and foliage. Columbine ran his black fingers across its slick, silver antlers. He bit his lip and scowled, now digging his nails into them--they were so beautiful... so very beautiful. He had no right to be feeling such beautiful, pure things. Just one touch of his cursed skin caused poisin to seep into the creature's divinity. He wondered if he continued to stroke the antlers if the poisins would cause his steed to sink below the surface of the pool it trod upon.' Medium: Pencil sketch, scanned and tinted w/ a background added in PSP7 Character/s: Columbine's steed Date: 7th grade (?) Comments: It's a very old sketch (seventh grade, maybe?!) that I did of his steed because I felt it needed a picture... I added the background in PSP7 before I knew how to do any sort of cg. I think for some odd reason I may come back to this picture and touch it up. It's such an achievement for me to draw an animal that good. It's not good, but it's good for me, in other words.Oh, and since I know someone's going to ask me what type of creature it is, here: it's NOT a deer. It's NOT a horse. Don't tell me it's anatomically incorrect, because it's a made-up creature that is not supposed to have the body structure of either a deer or a horse, or, in fact, any other creature. It's my interpertation of the damn thing, so you can't tell me its anatomically incorrect (or correct for that matter) because this is MY VISION OF IT GOD DAMN IT. Sorry, but I just deleted some flames; I'm really not that mean.
