The evening sky joins the forest in celebration of spring's return by adorning everything in copper and gold. The glade is permeated with the cool, calm aromas of sequoia, ferns and spring flowers. A sound emerges from the quiet, evolving into steady, measured hoof beats. Her coat gilded in the sunset's vibrant colors, the Matriarch emerges from the surrounding forest. The glade pauses, admiring her regal beauty as she in turn regards those present with benevolence. With a toss of her proud head she returns to the cool embrace of her green realm. -Drawn from scratch in Illustrator CS w/many layers, a few custom brushes, a blend and a gradient mesh.-

Oh, how gorgeous. The mane, tail, and feathers look so realistic. My unicorns pale in comparison (though I would be grateful for your own opinion on that!!). Beautiful, and the sunset is lovely, too.

I have to ask.... Did it get in? I really love it! The shrubbery on the ground and the horses hooves and the sky and well... everything!
