Three riders and their horses were walking through a forest path under the cool October sunshine. First of them was Ann Heartfield on her black and white stallion Milkyway. Milkyway seemed to be in a jolly mood, like always in a show day, and walked calmly, but same time proudly forward toward the coming challenge. Ann felt little nervous. She almost fell of here last year on their last dragon hunt .
They were followed by this bit unusual looking creamy yellow mare. “Mary, her name was?” Milkyway though and bend his neck a bit to take a quick look to the mare. He hadn’t yet really got to know this mare, but she seemed ok.
Mary was slightly spacing out. “Wasn’t this a beautiful day? Look at the sun shining through the tree branches! And… Ooh!
Inspiring or suggested background music:
Starting the race:
Final spurt for the finishing line:
After the race:
This song had huge impact on the art piece:
I listened it like 100 times. I closed my eyes and imagined this
0-0:20 get together.
0:20-0:37 horses and Raelans stand together. Stamping paws and hooves. Horses rearing nervously, raelans roaring prousdly.
0:37-> 30 the most beautiful, handsome, proud creatures boldly charging forward to the mysterious labyrinth.
Really kept me going to the end.
I’m really happy how this turned out. I feel like I have come a long mile with the copics and promarkers. Just look at that sky or the tree on the right or Ciel’s (the cream colour horse) coat. It would be so easy to stay forever in the colouring pencils etc. but this is now the third art season/period I have tried on markers and finally feeling like they start to work for me. I was even so bold that I bought MORE markers in this month. So yup they are here to stay at least bit longer
Mostly used just to get the horses leg position somewhat realistic
- Derwent sketching pencil for the sketch
-Lineart: UniPin Fine Line 0.8 and 0.1
Thanks for reading all the way here (with all the links and what not ). Here have a cookie! Thumbs up that I would get this stallion Peafowls, bloodplashes and kascels are my favorites and I absolutely adore this boys design especially. If you red the story you will saw that he’s already bringing some nice add to the person chemistry.
|Okey, I added this here... |
Points will be use to keep up my premium membership.
Why do I want that then? Well I love featuring art in my journals + it just so much nicer to use dA without adds slowing me down. :]
