This is a picture of a 'hippocampus' or water horse, as per Greek(?) mythology. I'm really pleased with the way that this image came out. I put about four days into it. I drew this image in Corel Ppainter 6, and colored it in Adobe Photoshop 5.5. The hair and the fins were all done with a 1 pixel brush, which is part of the reason it took so long to finish. >.> I'm selling prints or this image, too, so if you'd like one I'd be happy to send it your way. :D

Love it. It looks kinda pregnant, but the look on its face is so innocent. Love the way the scales look so smooth. the pose looks like its leaping for joy. If you can do that underwater.

I love how you've coloured it, great job with the "hair" (what's the word for that hair of the horses??), it's absoloutely impressive

Wow, this is amazing. I would never have the patience or the talent to make something like this. I’m setting it as my desktop background, if that’s ok.
