Commission for :star::iconsilverbrumby::star:
Another sketch commish done and dusted! :iconweekenddanceplz: Some of you may have noticed this mare, Tyra, around dA lately... and that is because her creator, the awesometacular =SilverBrumby, is back after a looong absense! :la: Brumbster and I have been friends for quite some years now, and I was delighted that she asked me to draw the lovely Tyra for her. :aww: Thank 'oo again for commissioning me, love! :glomp:

(I'd also like to mention that although Tyra appears to be an Azar because of the red hair & black markings, I can assure you she is entirely her own, original breed. :aww: If you'd like to design your own Aquiletan, then check out the club: #The-Aquiletan-Club or swing by =SilverBrumby's page!)

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

I especially like how you drew the neck, with the skin wrinkling up because of her position. The design is fabulous too! Love how you make the tail and mane seem so rough and sketchy, like a real one would be. I :heart: it!

I'm amazed by how incredibly realistic your way of drawing hair is. And it's so cute how you give the horses eyebrows.

Oh. My. Effin'. God. :omfg:
Michelle Marie Walker, I think you have truly outdone yourself. Again. XD I think this is now my very favourite piece of yours, that you have ever done. In all seriousness. I don't know whether it's the texture, what with the awesome sketch (I'm such a sucker for sketching. :XD: ) still clearly visible, giving it such a personal, human touch, or the spectacular, rarely-used pose, or perhaps the adorable face and flower in the mane - or perhaps all of these combined - but whatever it is, I kept this tab open for two days - no kidding - just staring at this pic. :B HOW can you just keep raising the bar over and over and over? :faint: I'm gonna call Webster, because we now have the perfect dictionary definition of 'perfection'. Again, the attention to detail on your pieces truly sets your art apart from all imitators. The wrinkled skin on the neck is something that I have rarely seen on anything other than realism pieces, and helps turn this piece from awesome sketch/digital art to breathtaking masterpiece. In fact, the level of detail can be compared to the level of detail in *cerona's pieces, which I assure you is an excellent thing. The picture also has a nice raw appearance in full view, as opposed to a squeaky-clean, streamlined, mechanical, boring appearance of a more typical digital picture. See, a lot of Photoshop-coloured pieces fail to replicate the delicate lines and creases in the skin on the face and neck of an equine. But pictures such as this nearly blur the line between digital art and reality - should 'ol Tyra have been a common IRL horse colour, I'd be hard pressed to tell this from a lightly edited photograph. I am completely blown away by the detail in the mane and tail, and the excellent meshing of traditional sketch and digital colouring. And very few other artists can create such a cute face/eyes! :love: The shading is phenomenal, another thing that some artists seem to struggle on. You make it look almost easy. But based on my experience, it is NOT. :XD: I just can't say ENOUGH about this masterpiece! The only critique I have to offer, would be that even though the sketch below gives this an awesome human touch, the edges are a little rough, making the picture look akin to a .jpg image in full view; this also impacts the level of detail in the eye. But both of these issues do in essence enhance the whole feel of this pic, making it less of a problem. :) All in all, I think that =SilverBrumby got one HELL of a picture, and should be completely overjoyed at the results! :D It's also really nice to see her back on dA. :meow: Mindblowing awesomerific masterpiece of epic win!!! :love:

HOW?!! :noes: Seriously, you are the BEST. I can't put into words how much your kind compliments mean to me, and always have done! You deserve a freakin' medal for being the best commenter on dA. Srsly. :heart: Gah, I'm just overwhelmed! My art doesn't deserve such praise, honestly! :blush:

Wow, I am finding it very difficult to type! :lol: I was speechless when I saw this, Michelle. :wow: :wow: :jawdrop: :jawdrop:

Okay, now that I CAN type, here we go. I must say, this is absolutely gorgeous! :glomp: :love: I love the expression on her face. The expression really stood out to me, and as soon as I looked at it, I thought of how happy she looked and how pretty her eyes and smile are. :aww: :love: The mane and tail are SO pretty, and you can see every little detail, and I love that about the way you draw hair. :nod: :heart: You got her markings so perfectly, and the rose looks amazing! :rose: You put so much detail and shading into that little flower, and it added so much. The details are so perfect, too! The way her neck looks because of the little ripples in it when it is bent, the muscles on her face, all I can say is, WOW. :drool: :wow:

And, I also love the cute little polka dots in the background. :aww: :heart:
This turned out AMAZING, Michelle. I am so excited to see more artwork from you, and keep up the gorgeous and amazing job with your work! :glomp: :huggle:
