A random "speed-painting" using the line-art I created for my recent tutorial: [link] . The horse was coloured on one layer in under an hour in total (very unusual for me), the background took a bit longer because I couldn't make my mind up on what to put there! This is just a random character (although possibly a future character of mine) at a random place for some random reason Anyways, hope you enjoy even though it's just a quick one :]
THE MAKING OF "Misty Meadows"
Tools: Photoshop CS2, Bamboo Tablet Time taken: 2 hours ( +2 hours for line-art) Layers: 7 Original size: 3508x2480 px Credit: Pose referenced from own photo
Aww it's a shame it didn't quite fit your screen. What is your resolution, maybe I can upload one that would fit better? I just made that one to fit my own screen, not thinking yours would probably be bigger
I was just thinking, I don't remember seeing rain in any of your drawings before. I think it all worked out very well! The horse looks great. The dapples are so perfect and detailed, as always. The pose is awesome, as are all of your other poses. You always go for a challenge. Even though this isn't the most challenging pose I have seen from you, you always draw something different each time, or a different angle, and it is always so pretty and unique. I also like this "random character", I really think you should keep her. The mane and tail are super pretty, and I really like the simplicity of them.
The background is epic, even for a speed painting! I love the sky and the mountains, and I already complimented on the rain. I also love the misty effect.
Aww thank you hun, I'm so glad you enjoy it I've actually included rain in two previous pictures ([link] and [link] ) but I don't think I do it enough Rain is so much fun to work with! I'm quite positive that I will have a character at least very similar to this one, as I've already worked out her stats and personalities and such, but I'm just not too sure about what sort of dapples she should have. I love those sort of really dark horses with nearly snow-white dapples and white mane/tail, but I think that would be a bit difficult to draw. Other than that, I'd need to find some other kind of striking dapple coat that doesn't look too common
