Here's my part of the trade with ~Jelly-Been . This is her gorgeous Andalusian mare Luella. It was a real pleasure drawing her, her coat is so nice and golden light I love palominos, they all have that special little metallic glow to their coats that I really like! I hope I did her justice
I think I am starting to get a bit faster with my drawings, although I still rather spend more hours making sure they look ok than rushing them to get them finished faster. The little butterflies are from an amazing brush set - if you haven't got them already, go grab them, they're definately worth having!
Hope you like it!~

Hey, if you're still interested in linking to these brushes, here's the new link: [link] She made a new stock account, which is why you couldn't find them in her gallery. I only just found out, because I was looking for them too! Anyway, it's nice to see this picture again - it's so pretty.
Awesome job. There's such a rich multitude of colors in the grass/flowers! I like how you made each strand in her mane so dynamic, it looks very lifelike. And those details, such as the feathering on her legs, the creases of her muscles, it makes your artwork really stand out.
Thank you I did have a lot of fun with this picture, and I think I made that visible through the colour scheme. Normally I'm not too into using many bright colours, but she started looking so cheerful hat I just felt like it
