I said it would be here and here he is. My beloved Velvet. Everyone had a daemon, and Velvet is mine.

This was also a chance to try out a new medium; Charcoal! Woohoo!

The muscle structure for the neck is right on and flowing bits of hair are wonderful

AMAZING! Do you think I have a daemon? hm i wander... I love the texture that the charcole has created and the toning is just right. It looks really 3D! WOOOOO!!!

36 Dannielle 'Starfish' Taylor replies: "Everyone has a daemon, go on that website, *points up above picture* and that will hopefully explain it more to you and help you recognise your daemon, its how I found Velvet.Though I wouldn't be surprised if yours was a male green llama called Ziggy, or something like that. ^-^"

Hi Starfish, *smiles* *here I am again 12*

Hi Velvet.. I don't think you know what a capriole thing is.. Here is a picture :http://www.pbase.com/wildestdreams/image/62764373
*You have to paste this in your own internet thing.. I think..* On that picture you see a Lipizanner *or whatever* doing a perfect capriole.. My own drawing isn't really with a perfect capriole.. It's more a playful jump I think 10 Naja.. I hope you *COOKIE!* and Velvet *CARROT!* like it.. It's not finished, I've to colour it.. ar.. And.. it doesn't have a background .. BRWEEH..

43 Dannielle 'Starfish' Taylor replies: "Yay!!! Loving the capriole!! And I can't wait to see the picture!! You draw horses so well, and Velvet tells me you are treating him nicely. And to say the least he LOVES all the carrots!!! ^^ *pounces on cookie*"

Good-evening Dannielle & Velvet,

I'm so sorry that I didn't write earlier!! 8
School is the most annoying thing in the world!
It takes so much of my time :/ (especially French 12)
But whatever, school-life can be fun ..
O man, This is not the reason why I wanted to speak you..
I wanted to say that when I've got Christmas holidays I'll upload some new stuff!! And *of course* I also wanted to upload Velvet in his capriole thingey!! (Black...black...more black... I'm afraid that its not my best picture, black horses are strange to draw.. just one colour XD **everyone thinks: dah** 10) But I'll draw Velvet many times, so in the end, I can draw a beautiful black VELVETTY!!! 1

see ya!!
Hennie !! 10 *o gosh.. I need a brainwash or something like that.. maybe I'm normal then 10* (No.. I don't think so..)
^And now I've to mail my German friend Dina.. *phew*^

1 Dannielle 'Starfish' Taylor replies: "Aww Merry Xmas!! And if I don't get to say this before the new year, Happy new year too. I will be drawing you a picture too. And I shall now scurry off to check out this picture you call not your best... though I doubt it. Black horses are hard to draw I admit, but I love them. ^^ Love ya chic!! xxx. *runs off to your gallery*"
