Starlight by Nikkayla Starlight by Nikkayla
...and she leaves starlight in her wake.

This is my entry to *peachesrox contest. I've been stuck in massive bad bad bad baaad art block lately, but then suddenly, I did this. I stared at the stock I had chosen for a long, long time and suddenly, everything started working for me. I made the unicorn, all glowy and ethereal, and then it was like 'she's being chased by something, but for what intent?' You decide!

Here is the awesome contest; [link]

And I've decided to enter this into another contest, here; [link] ru by *mbeldesign <3

I am most happy with this one... I think it helped me reach another level as well. I need to work on splashes, a lot, but for me, this is just where I'm happy at for this image! I also decided, doing this, that so many things I have been doing or wanting to do and feeling miserable at because I can't, so what, I'll learn, and I can do it my own way to get what I want and try things out.

<3 I learnt a lot for this one.

Whatever you want to think it is, it can be =) I don't even know, I see it as something after the unicorn's light =)
