The Approaching Storm by cerona The Approaching Storm by cerona
ARTIST'S COMMENTS

A simple painting which I started a few weeks back and could only now finish off. I finally found some time to do my own stuff, but rather than spending it on drawing something useful (like reference sheets or long awaited tutorials), I ended up with this! It doesn't feature any particular character or story, it was created purely for myself. I have no idea where the desert came from, I just thought it suited the horse :]

I quite enjoyed drawing this, knowing that it didn't matter how it turned out or what the character ended up looking like, and I hope you will like it too ♥

Hi,
great job, I love it!

Am I allowed to use it for a banner on howrse.uk?
Of course I accept it if you say no =).

(sorry if there's something in your message that I am not allowed to use it there, my English is not so well that I am able to understand everything =(.)

I would like to add a little story on it =)

LG
