"Pegasi looked almost more like four-legged birds standing next to horses. Their necks were longer and their bodies shorter in comparison, their ribs tremendously wideprung for lung space and their shoulders broad for wing muscles, but tapering away behind to almost nothing; their bellies tucked up like sighthounds', although... there were deep lines of muscle on their hindquarters. Their legs seemed as slender as grass stems, and the place where the head met the neck was so delicate a child's hands could ring it; they moved as if they weighed nothing at all, as if they might float away, even without spreading their wings. And no human could ever take their eyes off a pegasus' wings" (McKinley 129)
Trying to get back in the habit of drawing frequently- and as I just finished a novel about pegasi (Pegasus by Robin McKinley you should all read it), I was very inspired. Also, very driven to make this piece because of the lack of adequate representations of McKinleys' pegasi with their cute little alula hands!
