Vision by Equine-Instinct Vision by Equine-Instinct
******EDIT*******
OMG OMG OMG!!!!! AH! I'M ONE OF THE 25 FINALISTS!!!!! WAHHH!!!! Omg, I logged into my account and I noticed I had 25 messages... I thought.. well, that's unusual lol, but then I look down and see the comments and someone said "congrats on being on of the 25 finalists" i was like.... O.O OMG!!! I started jumping around the house lol! I mean wow! I CAN"T BELIEVE IT! lolz! I kept on saying to m y self, there's no way I can be in the finals, there are too many good ones out there lol.... and then I see this.... AH! OMG THANKS EVERYONE I AM SOOO GRATEFUL!!! GOD BLESS!!! lolz :D :D

Oh btw I've read comments saying that all the entries are digital... but, mine is traditional.... Unless you count the little fixes I did in photoshop with the stars... and the hair, but that was because the pencil marks showed really ugly when I tried to go dark...
SO yes this is a traditional drawing. Done on Bristol smooth paper. Pencils ranging between 2H-9B :D :D :D
I love both Traditional and Digital. Both are just as difficult, both are just as beautiful. ^^





So drawing this pic was really fun. I lost track of how long I spent on this. But I have been working on it every day since the day I heard of the contest.

SO this pic represents my dreams, my visions. My dreams are scattered, out of this world and up in the clouds... I have a main dream. I wish to use my gifts for the Lord and to use them as he plans. (I believe drawing is that gift) lol :D :D. As you can see there is a cross in the middle. The horse can be taken both literally and figuratively. I love horses and I definitely dream of owning a horse one day ever since I was litle :D :D. Plus a horse represents beauty and freedom. The birds represent my dreams being scattered, and the birds emerging from the bible represent that the word will set you free. The tree represents life, the drawing hand represents I want to "draw" out my future.
and the words speak for themselves...
But overall you can take this any way you want.

Truly, If there be no vision, the people perish.

Oh yes reference from ojtek Kwiatkowski [link]


GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE IN THE CONTEST!!

I get them from stock around DA. Sometimes I will be lucky and I will have taken one of my own... but.. usually not lol. since my camera sucks DX

KazeRyuujin Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010  Student Digital Artist
So basically from photographers who took picture of them and you draw them out? Lmao, you should be lucky to even be living around animals. I'm in a city. Bleh! xD

Well, if you got an expensive camera, it would be a lot better. O.o
