This is Elidhu, *Hlsadlar's gorgeous character. She is an immortal goddess of earth, and all in all a very interesting character to draw. I don't think I've ever spent this much time and consideration into one single painting before! (well, with a few exceptions..)
I don't think I've ever got stuck as much as I did with this one either! There was always something about the foliage in the background that made it hard to continue, or something that didn't look right, or that I didn't know how to draw. I guess that made the process of drawing this much longer than a usual commission.
Anyways, I hope you are happy with the result! No critism on the pose either, please, it was very hard to draw and I'm still not 100% pleased with it!

This is BEAUTIFUL <3 I for one love the pose <3 I don't mean to bother you and you don't have to answer, but would you mind if you could possibly make a tutorial on hooves? They are the one let down to all my horse pictures and I would love it if you had the time to make one~
Thank you, I'm glad you enjoy it I am currently working on a huuuge tutorial of how I draw my horses, everything from the basics to more detailed stuff like mane/tail, facial details, lighting etc. So I can surely add something about hooves if you wish
