New kind of art from me (and a question)

Well...I dunno whether this would be classified as a drawing or not...BUT...

It's taken me about 2 months to complete it...all together, I spent probably 10 hours on it. That's by far the longest I've ever spent on anything.

I am quite proud of it...but I was ready to kill my computer after, which is why it took me 2 months to do cause I never wanted to work on it. The photoshop file has like 200 layers on it, and I was CONSTANTLY clicking on the wrong one and deleting things or moiving them

The file is actually really small. I don't know why. :(



Whaddya think? Do you think, potentially, I could ever 'draw' a horse in this manner? I dunno what the words would be but is it even possible?

Wow I think a horse would look amazing! Do the lyrics to Tall in the Saddle or Girls and Horses or Wild Horses or Rhythm of the Ride or something lol :)

That's so cool! A horse would be a good idea...challenging but a good idea. I haven't read it yet but the movies of Man from Snowy River are based on a poem that I think is pretty long. That might give you enough material to try to work out a picture?
Can't wait to see the progress!

thanks everyone :) I'm thinking that, if I do a horse, I would use various quotes as filler? Cause for John Lennon it took me like 20 songs worth of lyrics [picking the best words hah] so I don't think a singular poem or song would be good enough...but since there are an abundance of quotes maybe that would work?

I'm afraid to start another one because this was SOOOO frustrating and I don't want to murder my computer
