Weaver of the mists by Maeix2 Weaver of the mists by Maeix2
HorseArt RPG; See Darklight Stables journal for stallion details : [link]


Oil on canvasboard, 30.5x25.5cm, 2006

I made this for :iconhfc: s Unicorn contest (well it would have been really akward if I entered a dragon to it now wouldn't it)

thanks to a few tips about horse highlights it's the first palomino I've made that havent relied on yellow paint, Only used ochrebased colours, white and burnt umber...does small happy dance...


challenge: 62 Magic

I don't celebrate Christmas, sad to say. Stupid dad. We don't even have a Christmas tree or any deceration. And you should see our garden, we could go mad with decerations there. :(
Most welcome! I do hope you will enter that new contest too then. hehe
Ah, I am sorry I confused the mist with water. Still it looks good. :)

thanks! :)
I've started adding the lighter tones first, gradually building up to the darker ones...until 'For you eyes only' I always started with the shadows...can't believe what a difference that makes...
as far as the horse goes, I'm allowing myself to feel proud, It's a step in the right direction...

and :thanks: you so much for the :+fav: :excited:
