I'm at work, but had to see this, and it's amazing. I'm so glad you were able to finish it, and that you are here with us once more.

Now it's ride into sunset, after the victory. But still with the armour on. You isn't a weak competitor.

Is it really your self-portrait? Details are fine, especially shine on plates and technical bits - studs and hinges. And there is a stylized face on the horse's breastplate, if I see well?

Beautiful. Keep fighting, remember that you WILL win, and grind that bastard into the dust.

That's a beautiful picture.

And I didn't know you had been diagnosed with breast cancer. *HUGS*

Oh this is so beautiful! It's so good to hear from you again.

I love that even with all the armor, she isn't wearing a helm. Meeting the enemy face to face, no holds barred. Simply wonderful.

Beautiful! So glad to see your art coming back as well as your writing.

A good many people, especially working in pencil, lavish great attention to the details of textures and tones, but neglect the solid drawing underpinnings of a piece, yours has a solid woman sitting on a rounded horse, a horse whose eyes are visible through real holes in a mask, not pasted on, but with a real sense of the distance between the layers of the mask and the animal's face beneath it.

Is the face a self portrait? So glad this helped you win your fight. May the prognosis continue well!

A gorgeous picture! Wonderful details on the horse and the armour, and the rider looks very determined. Great!

I didn't know about that diagnosis. *hugs* Hope all is going well again. And in that light this picture is even better.

Magnificent. If it was good therapy for you to draw this, that's Magnificent to the tenth power!
