This was a commission for
of his OC dragonpony, Drake. He has a really neat story, I suggest you go take a look at it!
In this piece I really tried to focus on lighting and texture. I learned a lot from it! The texture of his horns and scales was fun, but the extreme contrasty lighting drove me crazy haha. My monitor is cheap, so everything looks washed out/bright on it, even when it "looks" too dark/just fine on my Cintiq. >.>; But I really wanted to illustrate a striking light source, and I think in the end I pulled it off ok.
