Centre of the Sun by Nikkayla Centre of the Sun by Nikkayla
"Young girl in the market
Gives it to the men
When the men leave
Her eyes are red
When her eyes are closed again she sees the dark market

And she sings
They say the most horrible things
But I hear violins

When I close my eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done...."

-- Centre of the Sun in Conjure One, performed by Poe.

[link] - best mix of it. Goes for 10 mins but SO WORTH IT! <3

This image is heavily inspired by that song. I was trying to make a different image, something as a header for Liridon when I started on it and this image popped into my sights. Then I finally found good horse stock and voila, I put them together.

I wanted to make it look like the world was glowing and shining, like it was reborn. Liridon fell into cataclysm has been reborn, pretty much... and I couldn't get this song out of my head either. It haunts my head pretty well right now... <3 Adore it.

So yeah. My mane and tails are kinda blocked right now but I managed to get something I'm happy with out at least. The tail is meh, but the mane I'm quite happy with. And very happy with the positioning of the horse and the light.

Quite happy indeed. Especially since I'm having a big problem with art block recurring and not being able to do manes/tails okay >.>
