Giftart for :star::iconhorsesnhurricanes::star:

This was done a while ago for my awesometacular friend, Zac, who deserves many love, hugs and glomps!! :la: :glomp: :love: For those of you who don't know him (you should - he's freakin' awesome!) this is lurverly stallion, Derecho. :D I have one or two pics of him in my gallery, so chances are, you've already seen him.

I am soooooo out of touch with my traditional art - damn, I miss it!! ;___; But saying that, I DON'T miss the shitty, craptastic quality of the photos, as seen here. :( Please, no crits whatsoever - I no longer have the original, so there's no way I can change anything, even if I wanted to. :p

Love you Zac! You're such an awesome person, don't ever forget that. :heart:

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

Sorry, your camera made it darker and blurry, I know how that goes! :XD: But you can still see perfectly perfectly that it is amazing! Anyway, THIS IS AWESOME!!!

I really miss your traditional art too. There's a softness to those pictures that you don't get when doing digital. I hope you'll get some more time to draw more traditional. I know how fun that is. :)

This is a great gift for such an awesome mate. He's a lucky boy, and you're equally as wonderful a friend for a gift so lovely. :hug:
Haha. I don't even think I could critique you on this, even if you wanted some. It looks great, my dear. Anatomy looks lovely, shading and highlighting looks great, even your background (haha. No brushes! :lmao:) although it's quite simple, draws me in. No pun intended! :XD:
It's also really nice to see some more of your traditional media. Something I've been quietly missing. :happycry:

Beautiful job, M'el! :glomp:

I had limited time to take the photo - I had to send off the original and I didn't want to wait days for the sun to come out. (It was very grey & dull over here in Scotland at the time :p)
