+tsunrisebey Posted July 29, 2010 Share Posted July 29, 2010 (edited) I've been a little quiet on the design front this year, just had lots of changes going on (positive) so my time has been very limited. However, if you've been following along on Facebook, you already know what I've been up to design wise I'd like to introduce you to "Native Pegasus". I've wanted to do a Pegasus for quite some time but was never inspired to put something to paper until a couple months ago. I drew this fella over the course of 2 days. First it was going to be the full Pegasus and then I changed my mind and went for the shoulder and above view so I could really work on the wings. I changed a few things here and there and this is the final design come to life in a coin As always, the artwork is all hand-drawn, I don't aim to aspire to perfect lines and symmetry as my designs tend to be more true to Mother Nature and her imperfections (the perfection is the imperfection) so I like to keep "honest" if you will but that's just me. Obviously there is some major Native American influence on a mythological creature going on here. As usual, colors and design were done with special meaning. That's not something that I normally share with everyone as I like it to mean what you want and need it to mean. The names themselves are a major insight into how I perceived each version up to this point. The back side was purely done in fun and I just wanted to play a little bit. I'm rambling, so in other words... I really hope you like this design, it's very special to me. I'll have 1 version to debut at Geocoinfest and when I come home, I'll open it up to reservations if the design seems to be popular to people, that way no one has to duke it out on the store. I'll post here, on Facebook, Twitter, Blog when I open this up for reservations, right now just sharing Thanks, tsun Edited July 29, 2010 by tsunrisebey Quote Link to comment
