A Magical Night by MichelleWalker A Magical Night by MichelleWalker
Trade with :star::iconflareandicicle::star:

Another Sunday over, another trade over. :phew: Gosh, I didn't mean to spend so much time on this! No offense, of course, but you know what I mean. :giggle: I guess I got a bit carried away with those lilies and that froggeh! Please, please, please no crits on the water - I know it looks like crap, so you don't need to point that out, plz k thx. :D

This was so much fun - Firefly was a pleasure to colour! I'm hoping to get all the remainding trades finished by Christmas so that I can start with a clean slate in the New Year. I probably won't be opening up trades until well into 2009, so please don't ask! ^^;

Thanks for looking. :hug:

I really wanted to comment on how well you kept the foal in proportion both in the main picture and the reflection. The detail in this picture really makes it so amazing - I'm glad (and I'm sure you are too) that you spent so much time on it. That sure shows. I love the line-up with the back hoof and that star, and the expression on the foal's face. A glorious moment, certainly deserved to be captured in such a way.

Ary.

You are incredibly amazing. I wish I could draw. I am a writer, sadly. Horses are my love, and I would give anything to be able to do work like this. :D Keep at it.

I wonder, when you do the grass so it really looks like the horse is standing/laying on it, how do you do? because, when I do grass and making the person BE on the grass and it goes up to teh knees or something... I first draw the grass on a layer underneath the colours and lineart, and afterwards erases some of the lineart... I wonder how you do?

I told you loong time back to do a tutorial! :lol:
