Okie-dokie: there's no getting around it. I can make a fairly cohesive piece of digital artwork. I wasn't sure I'd be able to pull it off, as I'm still fairly jittery with a stylus and tablet.

I started with this pencil drawing: http://rachaelm5.deviantart.com/art/Gateway-horsie-template-77211726

Then I fed it through Photoshop with duotones and some different layering effects. I like the end result. Don't know if it'll do any good in the upcoming DST art contest, but the fellow who won last year seriously needs some competition.   ^_~
