Icy Skies by Losmios Icy Skies by Losmios
Detail shot

Red is one of those companions you have. When I was really young, the image of him standing on a snowclad cliff in a white blizzard came to me, and ever since he's been my silent and mysterious companion. He has never spoken to me, but I know he is very wise.
I've not drawn him nearly a smany times as some others of my characters, but red shows his face ever ow and then, always in a snowy landscape. I think his the king of white peaks and crisp pristine air, and he plays in the snow from morn till night.

First of all, I know the clouds are below my standards, I usually put a lot more effort into them, but you see my screen passed away a while ago, and I've been trying to adjust to this flat lsc screen my dad has lent me instead. It's prooving to be quite the challenge to draw on, the color sbehave very differently, especially white tones are very hard to hanndle! So please excuse any oddness that might be a result of this change!

edit: I forget! The whole reason why this image came into existance! *rewston uploaded some awesome wing stock to her stock account, and I could not resist to use one as reference for a pegasus image!

I'm sorry, I can't help it! My mouse is moving to the fav button! This is spetactular, and the feathers and wings are very realistic, and you made them look like he could actually fly with them too. I love the pose and his slight glance back (at least to me). I think I want to steal Red ^^ Hope to see more of him around

This is positively fantastic. I've been looking around at your art for a while, and I love all of it. I would favorite every single thing you have, but I suppose that it might get just a little redundant.

The watermarking issue is sad, but totally understandable. And it doesn't matter over-much, because your art shines through anyway.

I love love love your colors, how bright the pegasus is... it's simply stunning. Red is a difficult color for so many people, they go over crazy with it and you can't see any of the detail, but you did the absolutely most perfect job with this.

Thank you for still putting your art on dA, even though there are people that would make you rather not.

Wow!!! This is a truly amazing piece of art!!! :D The pose is realistic and well executed, and the snow swirling about is a really delicate but pretty touch!!! I love this so much!

Also, thank you for being considerate enough to remove the watermark. For those of us who don't wanna steal or rip off your art, it just makes it that much more enjoyable!!! :D Thank you!

Beautifull! I love the way you manage to work with the snow. It's so realistic way that the snow fly around the pegasus when he kick in to the air. Also the wings are very beautifull ^__^
