Meet the newest addition to my character collection; Creed! :iconomghaiplz:

I adopted this boy from the wonderful =DJ88 a couple of weeks ago, and I've been dying to draw him ever since! :la: I just fell in love with his design as soon as I saw him. :heart: I hope you'll make him feel like a welcome addition to the dA herd. :aww: I'll make a character ref sheet for him soon, and of course, make him a prominent character in my gallery! :love: (But I won't be forgetting any of my usual OC's, so don't worry about that. ;))

OH! And I thought uploading my new adopted character would serve as a reminder that entries for my own adoptables: [link] ends at midnight TONIGHT! :eager: So if you're still hoping to adopt, be sure to get your information/pic uploaded as soon as you can! The winners will be announced tomorrow. Good luck! :D

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

Wow, that is the most amazing muscle structure... beautiful work. Those markings are interesting, the leg stripes remind me of an okapi.

sunsetluvr247 Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2011
Wow Michelle, this is fantastic! :wow: :faint:

I know I told you this already, but I am extremely sorry for being so inactive with my commenting lately! I am making it one of my new goals to have commented on all of the deviations I have yet to comment on within the next few weeks. I feel so stupid for not commenting earlier, you have no idea how horrible I feel about it!

But.... now that I have time to sit and comment for a few minutes, I will go ahead and clear out a few of those deviations that I will post long comments for! :aww: So, here goes...

I have looked at this multiple times, and each time I saw this gorgeous character, I just couldn't speak for a few minutes. You made him look so graceful and beautiful, so light on his feet! When I viewed it full-sized, I saw such a large amount of detail that my mouth fell to the floor. I swear it did. :lol: The pose is fantastic, I love how he is strutting towards you. It shows his personality pretty well and also shows a playful side to him. :love: Just seeing the creative pose that you used made me love him immediately! :wow: The anatomy is perfect, you couldn't have drawn it any better. :aww: The muscles and bones in his legs and in his face really stand out, as well as the strength in his neck. :faint: The shading is amazing! :wow: I practically fell out of my chair when I saw the shading. It is the major reason that the muscles stand out the way they do. The sheen on his coat and the shading around his chest is amazing, it looks so beautiful and natural and just... gah! Breathtaking, completely breathtaking. :love: :hug: The mane and tail look very pretty and flow so well with his pose, and make it look like the wind is blowing. The detail and extra hair that you can see adds realism to your style. :love: His expression is so cute, with his vividly colored eyes and his handsome smile. :) I just can't tell you enough times how amazing this looks! :faint:

Now on to the background. I will tell you one thing about it- it is stunning! :love: The clouds are so detailed and shaded so well, and you can tell where the sun is just by looking at the clouds. :aww: So much detail, such a beautiful, creative horse and design, just gorgeous. :faint: :wow:

Amazing job, Michelle! :glomp: I hope that comment was worth waiting for! :aww: :hug:
GabiHorse Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2011

PaintedJewel Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2011
Goodness! The shading is incredible! :heart: Which brush do you use?
MichelleWalker Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I use the soft airbrush tool for shading, and vary the opacity. :D
WolfessKiss Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2011  Professional General Artist

Gorgeous :clap: I do like these loong pictures-it's a bit more of an interesting layout to the normal rectangles and squares we all use :D
And your new charrie is gorgeous-and I love his colours :heart:
Your anatomy and shading is really good here to-I was zoomed in on the chest area and that could of quite easily come from some really realistic digital painting :)
So all in all..i think this is brilliant-one of my favourites :D
kagetora4ever Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
What a gorgeous boy! :love:
thunderbulletz Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011
My goodness Michelle! :jawdrop: :heart: I have no idea where to even begin! Seriously, I couldn't have believed it was possible anymore, but you've AGAIN beaten yourself and taken a huge leap on improvement here! Your shading and anatomy and lineart and composition and manes and tails and everything are getting better and better so fast that I'm truly like speechless here! :faint: I'm also very excited to see Creed joining to your characters, he looks absolutely gorgeous here! I can't wait to get known to him better. :giggle: But anyway, magnificent job once again hun, keep it up! :clap: :+favlove:
KathyKnodoff Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
HOOOOLYYYY !#%@%. :omg:
Y'know, you're really starting to shade like the fucking *cerona or =navybluestar, I mean it. Aside of Creed being a pretty captivating and eyecatching character himself, it seems like you've put an incredible amount of work to make him look just like he does now. I'm impressed. :love: :heart:
FlareAndIcicle Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The chest area looks amazing! :love:
Emfrank Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Loveee! This could make a *beautiful* bookmark! :)
The shading on the body is very good! It's realistic and so smooth! :)
I'm excited to see him in your gallery more :)

OMG he is gorgeous!
Willobea Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2011  Student Digital Artist
He is utterly gorgeous :dummy: The colouring is so soft and warm! And your shading is just getting better and better with each piece of art, it's starting to look so realistic, but obviously still your style which is an amazing thing to pull off. Your art is always so stunning Bori, and usually in the simplest ways, please keep it up :love:
LanyLan Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011  Student Digital Artist
D'awww!!! :la: What a handsome fella! :love: He looks absolutely handsome! Is it just me or did you change your shading technique. It just looks a little different to me! It looks great though! :heart:
