The Wolf of Kintyre by dawnbest The Wolf of Kintyre by dawnbest
Sparkles atop a castle, around 1200AD.

Yes, she's that old. And this is a concept from my new sketchbook, in which I've been constantly penning quick doodles such as this one.

Not sure how much you'd potentially see of this story in the first issue/one shot of the Baen-Shee book, as much as I want to touch on world history with it. The Hound of Ulster is, of course, what this concept is based off of. Very loosely, I assure you... For one -- Sparkles' story takes place in Scotland, not Ireland.

I love her hooves. I bet she could do some serious damage if she kicked someone in the face.

Yah! I looked at different hooves for each one of the girls. Most of them aren't like toes you'd find in the real animal kingdom, but they're at least based on such things.

Sparkles has the feet of a rhinoceros, is what I am saying XD

Ah, thanks dear! Really trying to escape my usual bonds and once again working more with movement and composition overall. Glad you enjoy :)

Yeah, movement is something that seems to be missing from a lot of artists' galleries but you don't seem to have any sort of problems conveying it. Keep it up!
