Showing her the world by BlueFlyer Showing her the world by BlueFlyer
Here's another messy picture that I was working on. I know that the left side rock face looks a lot more messy than the right side. I just wanted to see if I could do a scene like this.

Seeing =bardicsidhe's forestesque like setting with her recent painting of Scylla and Fia, I was inspired to attempt a forest setting of my own. I honestly didn't mean to take the same route as her with foal and adult unicorn, though.

This is Ne, the filly, and her (single) father Webfrost, also known by Webb.

She was finally old enough. Webb was confident that she was sure-footed enough to keep up with him and the dangers on the path. He wanted to show her the gentle hiss of the waterfall and the magic of a place she'd never seen before.

Ne was thrilled, and her youthful curiosity posed a question around every bend. "What is that?"..."What does it to?"..."Why does this do that?" Webb humored her with answers that even HE wasn't sure of the answers to, but she didn't even seem to be listening to him.

When they came to a log, he called out. "Ne, hold. Wait for me to catch you up." She froze, listening to the sound of rushing water, foreign to her swinging ears. She fled to the safety of his legs, peering up at him and keeping his side till they hit the fallen tree. "Tis safe to cross. Just mind your footing. Dont fall." He watched her bravely obey, nose the bright orange squishy fungus and lick the earthy moss as she padded carefully across the tree.

"Slow down, little rebellious one," he teased, and she gave him the smile that he sought over one gray shoulder. "Below you is a sight. Have you ever seen graceful water tumble down a slope?" He walked two steps onto the log and peered over the side carefully at the rushing water.

"What is it?" Ne asked in wonder.

"It's water, silly filly. Falling water." And she mimicked with the words all jumbled.

"Waterfall?"

I know! A baby up so high on that log. It's really a dangerous situation but...one that definitely is a worthy experience. We'll say the log is way sturdy and way wide. ;)

drawing plantlife as background elements is the bane of my existence, so I am in awe of what you've done here. <3 it's roughly and loosely done, which I like, and the colours and composition work fantastically! I especially like how you've done the vegetation on the left hand side cliff. love how green and alive everything looks, and how Webb's and Ne's poses mirror each other. <3 gorgeousness!
