The second of the Elemental Horses that began with Ignis and continues here with Aura (wind)! I had sooooo much fun with this one, and I'm delighted with how she came out. I chose the Thoroughbred to represent wind, both for their speed and their delicacy. In color, I decided to go a different route from the Primary Colors as Elements that a lot of mythologies use, since really you get all colors in elements (blue fire, green and blue water, red earth, etc.) and besides, wind is technically invisible. -.-
My solution was to use whites and silver for wind (which will serve as the antithesis for earth, which will be gold and blacks). I actually ended up using a lot of different colors to get the shimmery quality, which is just one of those funny things that happens when you draw something that's white. XD
If you like these, you can thank my generous patron, who has already ordered the next horse in the series: Aqua (water)!
