Ready-For-Battle

Hello all, from Artsieladie!

This digital art of a steed and mounted warrior is with a very basic background here, but it is part of a much larger piece of work of mine, where they are in the courtyard of the larger work. The actual size of this piece is by itself very large, 2365×3242 (7269.4 KBs). The full, large size PNG is uploaded to my elftown.org site: http://www.elftown.org/Mainstreet/ReadyForBattle-SDonnelly-Artsieladie-2011-10-02_2365x3242.png

There is an INCREDIBLE amount of time spent on the details of especially with the warrior's attire and the horse's tack, which can be seen best by viewing the full, large size. This is not a statement of complaint or regret however. Focusing on details is challenging trying to make them as perfect as I can and it's in the time spent on the details that ultimately makes a work good or great.

But not only in regards to what we take on as a task to master but in life in general. Paying attention to and not forgetting the details, the seemingly insignificant or small things in life, expresses the most how much we care for and about each other. This same is what helps tremendously to bond and keep bonded two people in a relationship. 


In the investigative field, it's in the details of a case where the inconsistencies are found, thus leading one or ones investigating to being able to solve a case. It's in the details where a person can be proven to be trustworthy and reliable or just another fake to one degree or another.

..And I happen to like challenges, which is a good thing since my life has been nothing short of being a series of challenges to one degree or another, in one form or another. Therefore, I'm accustomed to challenges and time consuming tasks. Nothing has come easy to me. I've had to work for everything I've ever had or do have in my life. One might think then I suppose, that I would instead try to avoid challenges but not so, at least not with me. There's a certain sense of accomplishment one acquires when they work for something and achieve success that wouldn't otherwise be realised or have the ability to build one's self worth, esteem, and confidence. When you know you've surmounted tough hurdles before, you then have the strength and confidence that you can do so again. ♥

"Sir Hans"

Take me in your arms,
Bring me aboard your steed;
Whisk me away with you to a place
Untouched by jealousy, hate, and greed.

Into the sunset, together let us ride,
Arm in arm and always side by side.
Rescue my weary heart with your velvet touch;
Protect it from evil forces having tread on it so much.

Take me to a place where truth and love prevail,
Free from shark infested waters, calmer seas to sail.
Fight off all the demons like you always do.
Wrap me in your arms and keep me close to you!

My best friend of many years, 'my knight', +Hans Galversson.

"The measure of a man is not in his physical strength,
Tough exterior, or financial successes,
But in his gentleness of spirit, kindness of heart,
And compassionate soul, he possesses."
