This is the spirit of pegasus. It is a being of pure spirit, created purely from the winds of magic. It is a being of the Aether, unreal, and unbound by fetters of convention. It is free from the constraints of the petty laws of physics. It is independent of mere reality.
The mighty power of unadulterated magic binds its form and gives it its strength... Ethereal as Air and inconstant as Water, and yet this is a being that will last through the centuries, being uneffected by the centuries... It will last through eternity and never truly fade, never perish from the earth.
And yet it will never truly make its mark. Despite the power it weilds, it lacks the soldity of a real creature of Earth... Unlike a creature with the Fire of life flickering within it, it will never have respite, its eternal, unnatural state lacking the finality or urgency of life. Life's greatest bane is also its greatest boon.
It is a will o' the wisp, a trick of the light, a conjurer's flame. It snapped into existence at a thought and yet it looks like it might fade from the world at a moment's notice, without ever being touched by another being. It will always be alone

. I hope that you like it. You can have the original when you get back here.
It took about two weeks, of which about twenty to thirty hours was actual work, although some of that was pretty much monkey work like undercoating. I may touch it up at some stage, especially the base. I have some pictures of it in progress which I will post as scraps.
This is based upon a Citadel miniature, but very heavily modified, and substantial areas of the surface, especially a lot of the wings and mane are my own sculpture.
Finally, you too can get a model like this done on request, as there are five spots left on my "free art" entry.
I've recently had to repair and update the model. It currently looks like this [link]
and I hope it will stay that way...
