Since last year of ESS (Equine Secret Santa) was a lot of fun, I couldn't resist participating this year aswell! Due to stress, lack of time and illness I haven't actually been able to finish the drawing until now, but it's more in time for Christmas like this
Anywho, this is ~Queen-of-Randomness's amazing character Lessa, who's an absolute beauty I think I drew her a little bit darker than she's supposed to be (ok a lot darker..!) - hope it doesn't matter too much
Merry Christmas to you hun, hope you like it ♥

I am just another one of the 337 comments but i would like to say, i have never seen anything so very beautiful in my life. If i were to idol anyone, the person i would idol or admire would truly be you. You are just truly talented and miraculous that it blows my mind. The mane, the structure is all just so so beautiful in the way you have enhanced this beautiful breed of horse. <3 It is incredible. The colors, the shading. All so real and gorgeous with the touch of your immense talent. Truly AMAZING
The mane, the muscles, the snow on the whiskers, the eyes, the anatomy, the EVERYTHING! This is so beautiful, and I love the fogged breath. He reminds me of a Clydesdale/Thoroughbred cross, because my friend's horse looks like this! Stunning, your talent blows my little mind.
