Waltz of the dandelions by JulieBales Waltz of the dandelions by JulieBales
    :icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:


    It has been a long time since I drew this lil' horse. I submit him for the contest of the Black Pearl for the game Equidow (the French version of Howrse [link]). I had moreover submit this deviation here last year :



    But I he search a background for him wich will be able to emphasize him and this is that it given : a flowery fields of dandelions. I like these flowers and I suppose you also like blowing above for the "petals" fly away and waltz in the wind.

    So, I regonize that the horse and the birds are not very beautiful but I looked especially for an atmosphere...

How did you create your horse? I looked at the stock picture and the colouring is completely different. I really love this, I would like to learn how to do horses like you :)

Je n'est qu'une seule chose à dire à propos de ce dessin : Il est magnifique.
J'ai eu du mal à voir que c'était un dessin, d'ailleurs, j'ai pensé à une photo au départ, tellement c'est bien fait... ._.
