...fireflies...
-Time Spent: approx. 10 hours
-Layers: 82

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Awake when I'm asleep,
Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep...

-Owl City

...My entry into Autoile's Unique Equine Contest: [link] Not sure how "unique" it is, but I had fun making it. xD

So this one isn't too complex... I'm going to upload a walkthrough on it later. I've always wanted to do a picture of a fiberoptic horse ever since I saw that Sony commercial with the hummingbird.

Ooooh, very pretty. If it's alright by asking, how did you do those firefly like things on the horse's head? They're so cool. :]
