Red has been a part of my life since childhood. Before I ever read my first fantasy book, he turned up in my mind one day. I can actually recall the exact moment, where I was, what I was doing, when I first saw him perched on a snowclad cliff, in a blizzard.
This big red winged stallion, always in a snowy landscape, has been a silent and mysterious companion throughout my life. He never speaks, but yet I can tell he is very wise.

The piece was drawn fairly quickly, and though I'm pretty happy with it, the clouds are the thing I've put the least energy into. Maybe I'll rework them at a later time. And it was quite hard to draw for anothe rreason - I'm working on a flat screen, at the coors are coming out very differently from what i'm used too, so forgive any strangeness that might be due to this!

And psst, keep an eye out on my deviant art pages for a bigger version!

Software -Photoshop CS
Hardware - Intuos 3
Time - estimated 5 hours, +/- one or two

Wow...I was absolutely floored by this piece when I saw it. You sound so modest in your description, so I'm thinking, "Well, it's gonna look pretty okay, I guess." Then I scroll down and discover that it is THE most beautiful piece of computer artwork I have ever seen!
It really is perfect in every regard, and I wouldn't change a thing!

Companions such as these are, indeed, quite special, aren't they? Mine has pulled me through some pretty tough times too. You should be very proud of your crimson friend.
