Never stop following the little light in a dark period, no matter how small it is.
Well, this one has been sitting on my laptop waiting to be uploaded since December 2012. Why didn't I? Because 'stock' I had used for the horse turned out to be stolen. So I sent a message to the rightful owner of the photo (TWICE even) with the question if I may please upload this to deviantART because I didn't know the picture I use was stolen and I NEVER got an answer. It's been 2, nearly 3 months now and I think he's had enough time to tell me if he didn't want me to upload this. I'm pretty angry with the stock thief as well as the ignorant owner of the photo who has definitely been online and posting things but never replied to me.
But here it is. I put alot of effort in it after all and I think I'm allowed to show it. Looking back on this, I think I improved a LOT during those two months.
EDIT: Repainted the mane and tail, fixed some lighting issues on the foreleg, added snow thrown around by the horse and fixed the shadow (though the shadow isn't that visible because of the thrown around snow).
