Commission - Io Reference by cerona Commission - Io Reference by cerona
Commission for :iconspirit-wolf25:

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

THE MAKING OF "Io"

    Time taken: 12 hours

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!

Thank you! :aww: I haven't had much experience with either white horses or appys, so it was definately a challenge to put together!

Yeah I have to start drawing a lot more different colours aswell, it's so easy to keep drawing the same types over and over :]
