A foreword for all my watchers/people viewing my work: I want to let you know that even if I don't always reply with a "thank you" to each comment personally, I read every comment and appreciate every fave that comes my way. :heart: Thank you so much for taking the time to look at and/or comment and fave my work! It really does mean a lot to me, so thank you!! :tighthug:



Equine Secret Santa for :star::iconpokeaday::star:

Fourth year of participating in the ESS! :iconweekenddanceplz: And I submitted just in the nick of time! :phew: I'm sorry this isn't much, Carmen. I wanted to do more, but unfortunately I didn't have as much time as I hoped. Hope you like it anyway! Merry Christmas to you! :hug: :holly:

And a massive thank you to the ever-wonderful `CricketWings for taking the reigns (hurr) from the dearly missed ~Equinus. You have done a brilliant job organizing the ESS this year, and it's just not Christmas without it!! :glomp:

Sketchy style 'cos... just 'cos, m'kay? :iconragemanplz:

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

Sketchy style because sketchy style is always cool!
I don't know what you've done lately but your sense of anatomy has gotten really fabulous! Those legs and shoulders look brilliant, and the shading is seamless! Awesomely awesome work!

Like *imke14 said, that feeling when a new piece from you appears to my inbox..! :squee: I'm sure your art will always have a special place in my heart because your drawings never fail to give these certain feelings that not many other artworks do. Your art makes me long for something.. I don't know if it's something I once lost or never really even found in the first place. However, like I said on the drawing you uploaded before this one, it's a very positive and warm feeling I get when looking at your art; like coming home from a long and wearing trip.

But yeah, before I start to ramble again I'm just gonna say that this drawing is wonderful and I especially love the horse's expression and the shine on his coat! Guaranteed Michelle-quality as always, brilliant job hon! :+favlove:
