Hoofprints in the Snow by PaintedHoofprints Hoofprints in the Snow by PaintedHoofprints
I have been working on this piece for so so sooo long... for my sanity I finally just had to call it done so I could move on to other projects. XD

I'm really proud of this one, despite how long it took me to complete, and how much going back and forth I did on it. (Believe it or not, this one started out as a beach scene. It kinda.... derailed just a tad lol.)

This was fun, and I like the style. I hope to do some more semi-realistic horse art in the future. :)

I apologize for the watermark, but I've already had some issues with art theft here, and I feel it's now necessary.

Holy new submit page batman! o.O

Tools:
Photoshop CS3 and Wacom Cintiq 12wx

This needs WAY more favorites. Like holy crap, your anatomy is just spot on. Not to mention the snow and the textures all work together so well that it doesn't look cluttered. It just works and makes it look soft and light. Agh, I love it all. <3

Aww thank you very much! I'm trying to get back into the more realistic drawing like this lately, even though it doesn't seem to be as popular as cartoon ponies. XD

I highly disagree, if you were drawing more artwork like this, it would surely attract the eyes of many. It does for me anyway. While cartoon ponies like MLP or others is highly recognized and has a good fanbase, I truly do believe it lacks the skill and talent it takes to make something as gorgeous as the art above. :) That's just my opinion.

I just had my first horseback ride a few days ago. These really are beautiful and strong animals. This is wonderful artwork.

Wow, that looks really great! I love seeing realistic horses along with the cartoon MLP style. You did a fantastic job.

Thank you! I enjoy shaking things up a bit by going back and forth between cartoon and realism. Keeps me from getting bored, I think. XD

I think I'm biased since I own a horse but I like realistic horse drawings more than the cartoon style. You did a fantastic job with it, really.
