I am totally in love with the book I'm reading at the moment, Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin. This is the horse from the book named Athansor, who I just couldn't help but illustrate he's described so beautifully.
I discovered this book from viewing this piece [link]
and after about 2 years I actually happened to remember the book and author whilst I was in a book store, whilst it was in stock. Sold! I'm about half way through, but I'll quite happily say that I've never read anything so spellbinding and beautifully written as this.
Anyway, this is - as usual, a pencil sketch coloured in photoshop.
