Commission for :star::icongirl-n-herhorse::star:

First upload for a while! This is a sketch commish of Emily's lovely stallion OC, Aardrin! He was lots of fun to colour - what a cutie. :aww: It's taken me ages to get around to the commissions - I'm only just back on dA after a two week holiday, so I have had lots of messages to catch up with. :giggle: I promise I have lots of art to upload too; it's just finding the time to do it!

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

This is awesome. I love the style. it reminds very much so of spirit stallion of the cimmarron. It's such a great skill, to be able to draw horses! I should really get back into it!

I really like how your lineart style is more sketchy than perfectly smooth and uniform. It adds a great rustic effect, which fits the horse theme well.

I will ofcourse place a link to your DeviantArt. I really like your work. It's much like the movie :) Spirit!

I would simply like to use this to show how one of my char's horse looks like *nods*

I really like how the mane looks on this one, I personally think the sketch lines make the mane look really soft and pretty. :)

Wow, Michelle, what a beauty! :heart: You drew this handsome boy perfectly! :hug:

Firstly, I love his little braid, and he has some of the prettiest markings. :aww: You did a great job with them! His smile is so sweet and innocent, and he has the prettiest eyes. I LOVE the way you draw eyes on your horses. :D His mane is really well drawn, and I love how you did the shading and the shadow from his head. :nod: :love:

Sorry for the super late comment, but this drawing is gorgeous! This boy is very smexy, let me tell you. :drool:
:glomp: Wonderful job, Michelle! :clap:

I don't get to see that much of you these days, Michelle. I know you got a life outside DA, but I miss you all the same. :huggle: :heart: But I love what I am seeing! Your art, as always, never fails to amaze me. I still consider you one of my muses. This big guy here is a total stud. You pulled him off perfectly! :love: I'm especially impressed with the patches; I imagine that was no easy task.

I know; it feels like aaaages since we spoke, Mel! :hug: I had to skim through most of my messages when I got back from Florida, but I've been meaning to ask how things are with you. :heart: Your recent journals spoke of financial troubles... I do hope your family will be OK, hon. If you ever wanna note me about anything, you know where I am. :cuddle:

But thankies for your kind words on the pic - indeed, the markings were time consuming, but they have such a great effect! I'm glad you like him. :meow: Much love to you! :heart:
