Commission for :star::iconbunnytrail::star:

This is Avalon, a horse at the stables where ~Bunnytrail rides. :aww: I promise my commissions will be open again really soon - just keep an eye out for that journal! ;) Sorry I've not been around much lately; I've just been really tired all this week and I haven't been up to commenting/faving stuff. :( But hopefully I'll be back properly soon.

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

Oh I could just die from all the lovely details... :heart: The grass, the sunset, Avalon's little smile, and definately her eyes. Amazing work, as usual! :love:
MissStark Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I like how you've kept the grass very simple without using a crappy default Photoshop repeating brush. It looks realistic and very pretty. A weird detail to notice, but it certainly adds to the polished look of the piece. :)
MichelleWalker Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for noticing! :hug:
BananaMuffin24 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Beatiful in every sense of the word. I cannot tell you enough what inspiration your art gives me. Every one of your drawings makes the horse lover within me squeal with joy. :heart:

Horsesnhurricanes Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2010
Gaaawd. THE FACE, THE CUTENESS. EEEEE. :love: I just ADORE this! Love love love love!! :love: I simply can't say enough about the mind-blowing detail in the mane. Furthermore, I envy your skill at perfectly aligning the facial features, especially the eye, at such an angle. The last few times I tried to draw somethin', facial angles KILLED me. =P The backgrounds and textures are gorgeous, and I love the attention to detail where the grass is being kicked up. :giggle: All in all, YOU DA MA--erm, WOMAN!! :la: Nice goin'!

I'd love to know how you did that sky-- did you use a reference? Did you make different layers for different colours? I really want to start improving my digital backgrounds.
animallover22 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool I like it!
kat8674 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010  Hobbyist
I love your style and that background is drool worthy! :drool:

Foxy-Hols Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
That sunset is just lovely :heart:!!! You really know how to make a picture stand out from the crowd ;p! And i love the details on Avalon - that dapple effect is so life like!!! Beautiful :love:!
sunsetluvr247 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2010
Wow, this is gorgeous! I love this pose. :heart: It is really cute and peaceful, and the beautiful sky in the background really adds to the peacefulness in this. :aww:
I also really like the way you did those dapples. And I love her mane and tail! I love that they are different colors. :nod: :hug:

Great job, Michelle! :hug: :glomp: I love this!
HylianWolfLink Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Absolutely stunning work sweetie, as always. :love: And holy crap, look at that gorgeous sky! :faint:
HipsterHorsie Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2010  Student General Artist
:love: it. I came back from a horse camp, last night and a Belgan Draft had the same name as Avalon. :giggle: Love this a bunch. :) AWESOME JOB!
LuisaVFM Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm speechless. You're really improving a lot.
The background is AMAZING!!! Well colored!!! :clap:

everything is PERFECT!!!
JediSword Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahh, that sky is incredible, it looks like it's on fire! :aww: And I really love the mane/tail in this one, it just flows so well :D
hoodsey Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010
Lovely! Reminds me of our boy, Sandokan. :) [link]

At least as far as color goes. xD Love when greys have manes or tails that stay dark longer. :)
Paardjee Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
She's so beautiful! I love how her mane and tail are different colours :la: I really like the pose and her eyes :love: they look so warm and kind :aww: and don't get me started on the sky because it's too beautiful for words! :faint: I love sunsets so much and you draw them so magnificent :heart:
LazyJenny Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2010
Ooh, lovely work on the clouds there!
It's funny really. That's actually a very simple background, just a sky, some clouds and grass. But still you make it really fill up the picture well! The picture looks so complete. (mine often looks like they are missing something) It might have to do with the fact that you mostly draw wild horses, but still. ;) A beautiful sunset always makes a nice background! :D
Rennevierre Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2010   Digital Artist
ZZOMG this is so pretty! :meow:
I just love the background and her expression and her eyes! :D I also love the colours she has.. a black mane and a blonde tail. Avalon is also a very pretty name for her, what type of horse is she?
Ahses00 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2010
I like this sky!
AutumnPendullum Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2010
I so love the colours of the sky and clouds, and the horse is so lovely. :)
XOMayaTheMareXO Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2010
Great! Love the mane&tail colour combo! :love: :heart:
LadyRavensknot Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010
Wow, so beautiful! :love: Avalon is one beautiful mare, I love her expression, she just looks so content and peaceful. :meow: The background is just stunning, it really complements Avalon's grey colours, making her really stand out. The colours and swrily-ness of the clouds makes it look almost dream-like (I mean who hasn't ever dreamt of having their own pony like her? :giggle:) I always love how you draw grass, it's always so soft and lush. :love:
Adaii Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010
