Born of Water.
The first in a series of elemental pictures.
This too was a project for a Secret Santa, and this one took longer than the other I think. The mane and tail... Oh gods! I did and redid, redid those and redid it again. I finally just gave up. The twigs weren't bothering me... it was just everything else. I think I was having a bad day.
Anyhow, this is it in its (almost) entirety. There's a little more of the pic that I opted to crop out due to the fact that it just wasn't needed.
The little hole/waterfall is actually two pics of the Niagara Falls blended together, and there for no other reason than the fact that I looked at it and just decided to put a watery pitfall in. Same goes for the snake... honestly, did you even notice the snake before reading this? LOL Most people seem to look over it.
Done with CS2 and a Wacom Intuos3.

Click for Closeups -- Please look at them. I swear, it's prettier up close than far away. I nearly loaded just a picture of the head and front half of the body instead of the whole thing.
