Moonlight by SilverFlameWanderer Moonlight by SilverFlameWanderer
Aljan and Telkella on the beach. The black stallion Jan has fallen very hard for this lovely rose and black mare. I strongly recommend the books. They are a fascinating read, and the characters are very well developed.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this picture. Jan looks a little bit like a ghost, but that's just the moonlight playing tricks. He also looks a little worried and nervous, but Tek looks quite happy and content laying there in the soft sand next to Jan. Although, her tail does seem to be a little lost in that sand. And, though she is rose colored, the camera flash muted the color a bit, but you can still tell that she is, in fact, pink. I am pleased with how the moonlight on the water turned out. This was fun to do, and there will probably be some more Firebringer art coming in the future. All you Firebringer fans out there, let me know what you think!

I love this series! It's so beautifully and poetically written. Perhaps it's appropriate that he looks a bit like a ghost, considering what's going to happen to him in the morning. I've done some Firebringer art too: fav.me/d6khaiq

I was going to say, "Looks just like Jan and Tek from the Firebringer trilogy," before I saw it actually was Jan and Tek. I like how Tek's horn in striped. Such a good series!

It was a great series. I read it about 7 years ago now--I'd love to reread them, but I don't have the time.

The wave on the beach is beautiful, and I really really love the clouds! Tek's horn is really neat, I like the way you wrapped the rose and black around each other. The way both of the horns overlap is very sweet. The moonlight on the water is lovely. :)

A very beautiful painting. :) I think you should've made the pink more pronounced, though. It's great nonetheless, it's just that Tek looks more black/white rather than black/rose. :)

Yea, I know what you mean. I had always imagined a really light pink though, but I agree...it's hard to tell unless you really look at it. :aww:

I think Tek looks well drawn! They both do really. Fantastic job on drawing them laying down! (I can't draw a horse laying to save my life.) Aljan's face is wonderfully proportioned and beautifully captured. I love the scenery, and how you drew the moonlight reflecting off of the ocean. Wonderfully done!
