paradise by purpledaydreams paradise by purpledaydreams

fullview!



When she was just a girl she expected the world
But it flew away from her reach, so she ran away in her sleep
and dreamed of paradise
Coldplay -- Paradise



This is a surprise gift for *Indigotha, who donated more than 200 points to me. Thanks again!

It's interesting how much this piece changed from my original idea. First I had just thought of a scared and tattered horse finally escaping some cave it'd been lost in; then I added blue glowy water, then some wings, and then light from the top. And although I usually hate it when something doesn't turn out the way I'd first imagined, this time, it was all improvement. (:
I'm feeling quite proud of this one. That's all I can say. <3

Please, no critique is necessary. This is a fantasy piece, and after working so many hours on it, I really don't care if I missed some little detail.

Oh, and one thing: if you look carefully in the reflection, it sort of looks like she's flying with the stars. ^^

Same, I'm not being judgy because I'm not WAY as talented as her. It's wings just belong more near the back, not the forearm's.
