Night Run by south-wind Night Run by south-wind
First painting in a while! I started with little planning and no line art - just slapped down some paint and kept going, and switched to black and white halfway through, when I realised I was churning out yet another brown horse painting. As it progressed, I concentrated on getting a sense of solidity and three-dimensionality into my digital stuff. I also wanted it to have a kind of storybook illustration feel. I think it's probably the best I've done so far.

This is extremely impressive! The anatomy is gorgeous and the shading is just breathtaking! I love the subtle dapples and those beautiful highlights that give him such dimension! The way that you shade is just stunning, and you can see all the planes on his body wonderfully, especially his head and shoulders. I also really love the way you've shaded the mane and tail, very beautiful all around! Gorgeous job, you should be extremely proud of yourself! :heart:

So good to see new art from you. :glomp: This is lovely, the horse just flows so efforlessly out of the background, and the black and white works so well that I didn't even realize it was colourless before I read the descripition. ;) If I could wish something, I'd like to see a bit more room in front of the horse but that's just me, I think it would make that glorious face a bit more focal point and would have given more room for the sense of movement. But hey, I'm being needlessly critical here, it is a beautiful work from start to end, the horse looks flawless and the background magical. Beautifully done. :nod:
