A Girl and Her Horse
I had a dream about a young girl in my care,
In spite of her health she rode a chestnut mare,
I loved her very much and felt so much pride,
For this clever young girl who could train and ride.
She rode bare back, just controlling with deft hands,
Her horse was sensitive to all her commands,
Performing perfectly together; as though one,
Their beauty shining as brilliantly as the sun!
I refused to reduce the quality and size, so I really cropped the heck out of this 846 KB full size image - which can be seen here:
and if not going there, I do highly recommend ZOOMING on this one, as there are many details to be seen in the horse's head and girl's face. :)
I want to make sure you all understand, when I say I dreamt something, I REALLY do! :) I am really happy that I can "give birth" to a vision that comes from deep within my soul with my art and poetry. It's a special thrill for me.
I also want to say I have not forgotten my promise to set up both Diamond and Tumbleweed texture sets as freebies...As soon as a polish up one other art piece I have been working on for a long time, I will fix up those sets and announce them here. Life has gotten just a bit more *sigh* overwhelming lately for me, and made it hard to finish anything....but I am working at it... (life, art, dealing with uncomfortable challenges)... I am sorry too for not being "around" to comment for the same reasons.
DAZ (old) songbird (I really must render me a few of those fantastic Ken G birds to use this way!!!) and DAZ mil horse with my chestnut coat texture (while I wait IMpatiently for the new HiveWire horse!!)
ALSO note: I used the one cwrw's mane for both the mane AND THE TAIL! Bless photoshop's warp tool and the quality of her 2d manes and tail sets!!

This is a beautiful render. I was very taken by the ZOOMED detail on the mane and tail. You did the texture on the horse? Beautiful! I love the colors and sheen over the muscles. All in all, I'm captivated by the sense of freedom and movement you convey in this image. And also, kudos on the poem. Beautiful work all around.

I almost envy your ability to re-create your dreams or visions in your work. I say "almost" because I try very hard to not envy anyone for anything. I have a vision that I want so badly to re-create and I can't seem to do it. On the surface, it seems rather simple but the execution is anything but! Ah well. At least you have that ability and I am happy that you share those images with the rest of us.
