Wanted: Banner For Site

Hello! A friend of mine is making a site about Scottish mythology and needs a banner done. The reason I'm asking on a horse forum is that I need one with a kelpie (a black, water logged, Friesian-looking horse) standing near the water with some mist and such and so forth, and the word "Paradocsa" floating around somewhere. I would like it kind of dark and mysterious-ish, if you get what I mean. Otherwise, anything goes! Have fun with it.

Thank you! If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Talking

Roughrider:

Ooh! That's very pretty. Did you draw it? That's exactly what I wanted the kelpie to look like. May I save it and possibly use it elsewhere?

RidingTowardsGrace:

Thank you so much!

Hmmm... Honestly, I don't know a thing about sizes in internet speak... About four inches tall (or bigger, if you need to do so) and long enough to stretch halfway across a standard computer screen?

Well....four inches would be kinda huuuuge haha. How about 728 by 90 pixels?

that's the size of banners usually. looks kinda small I know. Do you need it bigger?

The length is perfect, you could make it a little thicker. Not by much, just a bit.

Just do what ever you think will look alright. You're the expert here.

I used some stock images, so I have to send the stock owners the link to the website after the banners to acknowledge their use. but yeah :] Hope you like it!

No, I wish I could draw like that...but its ok if you save it. I found the sketch on google when I typed in "wet Fresian". I'd be happy if you saved it and used it somwhere else. =)
