ARTIST'S COMMENTS

This is a commission for *Spirit-wolf25's character Io. She is such a lovely little Appy mare, I had lots of fun drawing her. I'm still not very good at drawing white-based horses, so I hope I didn't ruin her and that she still looks alright! Again, as with [link] , *Spirit-wolf25 will upload the full-sized non-watermarked version in her gallery later for reference purposes. The watermark is just there to make sure there is no confusion that this would be my own character.

Hope you enjoy her, and I'll be looking forward to drawing the rest of the "herd"! :D

Absolutely gorgeous, and your shading is stunning.

My best friend (human) has a spot just like that on her eye, except it covers nearly half of her right iris. ^^

Aww thanks, glad you like it :) Yeah, it's quite rare for humans to have that spot, but since I did this ref sheet, I've actually started seeing quite a few people with it!

Mmm this is SO gorgeous! I LOVE the pretty brown dapply-effect you gave her. You're definitely awesome with white horses. Gahhh it's artists like YOU that make me sad that I don't have any horse characters!

Keep up the amazing work! <3

Wow! Beautifully coloured, she looks like an amazing little appy there. I especially like all the separate tones in the mane and tail. The spots are particularly sweet too. Kudos to ~Spirit-wolf25 for making such a pretty little character ;)
I bet she was fun to play with! :meow:
