Euphoria by howlinghorse Euphoria by howlinghorse
I had no idea what to call this! But it makes me think of how cool it would be to fly.

Believe it or not this is a commission paid for with money. I would literally do this kind of stuff for peanuts (okay, these days I might aim higher and ask for cashews). I'll never outgrow winged horses I'm sure! :XD: And for them to specifically ask for "purplish violet colours"... oh wow. :B Its only meant to be printed small, so I had to force myself to stop adding any more detail. thank goodness for deadlines.

Here's a close up - [link]

Please don't publish this in any way or I will be forced to put watermarks on it and I really, really hate them!

Wow this is stunning! I adore the colours and the wings must have taken you forever to draw ♥
If you're okay with that I'd like to feature this outstanding piece in FeatureHorseArtists

Everything you paint always looks so three-dimensional, like it could jump right out of the canvas. Maybe it's your innate ability to always match the lighting with the scene...but I'm telling you, this is fantastic. :heart:

Ahh wow, this is stunning! I love all the lavender/purple/pink hues, so beautiful! The composition really draws the eye in, it's almost as if the horse is circling the sun :XD: The texture is also wonderfully executed. It makes me feel content just looking at the piece! :)

You should definitely have done this commission-- you can actually draw wings, and it would have looked much more awesome! It's a pain there aren't more equine art commissioners around. I WANT to paint it more, but other things are more popular at the moment... unless you're really great with oils and racehorses I suppose!

Hmm. Re the wings statement, I dunno about that XD
Painting some racehorses or static classic-look horse portraits in oil has been a plan for me for a while now. I just don't ever seem to get round to starting!!

Now -that- is damned impressive. Very precise detailing on the muscles there, and it's amazing that you've done a horse (the most gorram hard animal on the planet to draw) so neatly. And the background is very pretty. And the pegasus is positioned perfectly on it...
...And I could keep gushing for a while, but you get the picture. Favourited!
