apparently there is a film with the same name, about cocaine smuggling... I'm not making any references to drugs here ok? It's getting harder and harder to come up with names lol!
My Christmas card image for this year. I was able to work on it over the past few days. (Illness has its benefits, namely time off work! The downside is my ribcage feels like it has been punched repeatedly by a bear, thanks to three days straight of coughing fits.)
Anyway. I said I wouldn't really do digital anymore, but it doesn't take as long to do as a trad piece... and I am short on time. (I haven't ordered my cards yet.) Plus, I always forget how much fun it is.
I enjoyed this a lot. It made me forget I felt like crap. YAY!
The horse is referenced from a photo by Robin Benefiel aka ~hoodsey
, with special permission. The photo's not on dA, but I'll see if I can get a link.
The background was inspired by several Christiane Slawik photos on a winter theme, but not copied from any of them. I sort of hashed it together and gave it in artsy feel
(my excuse for not being able to paint convincing backgrounds...)
