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!
