Long story behind this one... by Pegasus316 Long story behind this one... by Pegasus316
A long time ago, when I was still working the sales room at TruGree-ChemLawn (yes, I actually went to the trouble of spelling and capitalizing it correctly... ... God, I'm such a geek >_<;), Gaby did a motivational pic of a female Pegasus as a cheerleader. The caption she put at the bottom of the pic was "Go! Go! Just one more!" The latter half of that phrase happened to be spoken quite often in the sales room, so this was her way of making fun of the sales manager and their so-called "motivational tactics". ;)

Well, after a while of staring at this pic (and getting a good chuckle out of it each time, I might add), I decided I'd give a shot at drawing her myself. I still think Gaby's version was better. But, I can't say it wasn't worth the attempt at least. This is one of the most recent hand-colored pieces I've done (which ain't sayin' much as this is a 3 year old pic at this point). And, lemme tellya... rendering grass... I don't recommend it to this level of detail unless you have absolutely nothing better to do with your time over the course of about 24 hours or so. : P

It didn't actually take me that long. But, it sure as hell felt like it. >_<

This looks great! It's the first time I've ever seen a cheerleader that looks like she could kick my butt. XD

LOL! I've never really thought about it that way. ;) But, she definitely could be a butt-kicker if she wanted. ;)

Whoa... just whoa.

She's too cool, and the grass... man.

Looks like she's telling the boss "if you say "Just one more" just once more I'm going to show you what the underside of the lawn looks like."

Very cool. I can't say I feel sorry for you on the rendering grass part, though, since..

Welllll, self-inflicted torture is, by definition, your fault. >.>

*chuckle* she looks positively peeved about something... not a very happy cheerleader, that's for sure! ^^

Still, the detail is f'ing amazing! :)

Yeah, I kinda realized after the fact that her expression was not the happiest-looking. : P She's just supposed to look kinda tired, having just come in off the field after a really long session. : P
