Storm Bringer by cerona Storm Bringer by cerona
ARTIST'S COMMENTS

A Christmas present for my brother in Thailand. Many of the photos he's taken from there look so magical and unnatural that he and my mum have sometime commented that it almost looks as if a unicorn could suddenly appear from beneath the water. So now one does, though maybe not from the water :meow:

I finally found an excuse to base a drawing on a particular selection of photos I took from the horse show back in Summer. I was lucky enough to spot a beautiful Friesian horse who unfortunately was too nervous by the crowd and just kept rearing/bucking. Funny thing is that the owner said he's a people-lover and would never harm a fly, so I think they were just as surprised by his behaviour as I was.

Anyway, I wish you all a Happy New Year! ♥

Really impressive! I love your creations, cerona! Every month I wait anxious for if you have sent some creation to the " Space of Creation " in Horwse. Some time ago that I spend for your galleries, and the realism of your images I have never seen them in my life, sincerely your talent, the dedication and determination that you put in your works is something to admire!

very beautiful and very realistic. No flat looking black , love the whit in the mane, it looks like you took a horse added a horn and pasted into a background. Overall it is so believable that it's a real horse and background manipulation not done in layers upon layers and all that time was well worth the effort.

Oh hon this is absolutely BRILLIANT! When I got back on dA this eve, I decided to hop by on your page to see what you've been up to, and my jaw actually dropped when I saw this !! The improvement :faint: The combination of colours and shades to make it more realistic, the details (I mean, look at those vains and muscles), the expression in the eye.. Wow Malin! :love: you've really outdone yourself in this piece, and I must say it's amazing to see you grow :heart: Much love!
