Frost - Edge of My World by jennyleigh Frost - Edge of My World by jennyleigh
Edit: Now offering a print! Had to add black bars so it would print on a standard size without skewing.

Alternate Title: "Sentry"

So... He is getting a bit more glowy isn't he? We shall call that an aura! I think I went a little crazy on the colors, but I like it. That wasn't originally supposed to be a waterfall but it came out that way. Originally I had fire crawling up a bare cliff side, but it seemed... too out of his element...

I actually sketched this about 5 months ago at work and it stuck with me... though I had to make some changes for composition, but the major elements are all there.

He looks a little less lonely doesn't he? I guess I'm in a hopeful mood. :) This is the 3rd piece I have done with him, and I'm wondering if perhaps a compliment/opposite critter is over the edge there. Toying with ideas...

Anyway! If you want to see other stuff with him click the thumbs below:

Your artwork officially make me trip.

You should have a stamp that says "Who Needs Drugs, I got Jennyleigh!" +hint hint+ somebody make please...?

Anyways, this is incredible, I am so in love with this piece and I have been staring at it since you posted but have not had a proper chance to comment yet. I love every piece of it from the tree slipping down into the waterfall to the exploding anti-freeze sky, the crescent moons and then Frost itself (I picture these elemental equines being either both or neither sex)Frost does look cheerful, as if it is tossing its problems right off the edge of that waterfall (which I picture being made of snow and ice and not water at all)

I love how this is abstract and yet not at all simple or undefined. It is almost organic and inorganic and that is not something I have seen a lot of people do so it puts you in a truly unique place. Well done!:blackrose:

He was originally much brighter, but I desaturated his colors because it was just too much... He seems like he is looking for something. :D Thank you! :hug:

Wowwwww. I LOVE it. it's GORGEOUS! The water and the the the *spazz attack* Sorta wondered where Frost came from...now we know. Hehe. I like the moons better that way as well. Originally I thought you were going to have him walking on the beach or something of that kind, but this is a bajillion times better.

*notices note at bottom of comments* AHHHHHHHH!!! You just made my night! Thank you <3

Seriously xD Made my whole night, right there.

You're welcome of course <3 Have you decided to do a counterpart for Frost? I noticed in the poll (last time I looked anyway) fire seemed to be winning. But I'd loooove to see your interpretation of metal. Just personally. xD
Reply
:iconjennyleigh:
jennyleigh Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've started "smoke" because fire was winning. I was seriously considering doing an earth in metal form. My only issue would be the fact that metal is so solid it would look odd on a wispy horse....buuuuuut mercury could work... maybe. I was also considering a glass one, not metal I know, but I was wondering if I could create the illusion of a clear but solid critter.

I may or may not try my hand at other elements. Depends on if I burn out on this style or not. For air I was thinking "flair"... like the birth of stars or something. We shall see!

:iconcloudrunner64:
Cloudrunner64 Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oooh glass... *imagines* Well, when I think of metal on one of these wispy creatures...it's more like molten silver or, as you said, mercury, very reflective, shiny, and fluid. Still, glass would be completely awesome. (And I'm glad you chose smoke, cause, like you said, frost is neither ice nor water. So smoke is a better opposite in my opinion.)

Well, even if you do have to take a break from them, they're still gorgeous, and you can always come back to it and add more. *nodnod*
