edit: stupid me, it's supposed to be a late summer/autumn setting, but I don't think I made it clear in the title tho... but, err, now you know! :D /edit

CLOSE-UP

A surprise present for my dear friend *BlueFlyer, and it comes with a dedication to someone else close to me - 'Ingvar' ;) :heart:

Ataraxe and Bibble are from "Unicorns of the Vale" and met some 8-ish years ago, at a Longdance on the plains... Trivia - it resulted in Urutan, who leaps so gracefully on Blue's journal!


"After years of lonlyeness, the sorrow after his mate was still as potent as the very day she had perished. But the distance between himself and her memory had grown vaster, and solitude was more and more becoming a pain to bare, rather than an escape from the world. So after wandering for many hours one evening, he heard the cheerful sounds of a Longdance. With hesitation, he remained in the outskirts, unable to participate for a million reasons. But someone caught his eye, a fierce young thing of silken moonlight, springgreen and ravenblack, dancing with a joy that made her glow amongst her peers. Whilst following her spotted form, her eyes in turn found him, brooding in the shadows. He might have turned and left then, but... The young mare, with eyes so blue, broke from the dancers, caming to him with no fear... So he took her away, to serenade a different kind of song than she had ever heard..." :heart:

Just some mosh! :love:

The story reminds me of a fairytale. And you got the setting wonderfully, I don't need to read the tittle(or description for that matter) to see that this a late summer/autumn setting like you said.
I love how Ataraxe seems to glow, I guess it kind of fits his mode and he looks so great next to Bibble! They make such a great couple! And the background is simply breathtaking!
Just curious, how long did this take? That tree sure looks like it gave a lot of work to make!

I love it! I don't see why you had to specify you didn't want critique, it's awesome sauce. Are you ever going to make it into a print, or was it just for fun? It's just I have a blank wall in my room that needs some love. ;)
