"Something I've been working on, kinda been on and off with school work and such.
A slightly different shiny Rapidash! This painting was originally just going to be the normal orange Rapidash, but a few friends pointed out that it might look nice to go with the shiny version.
However, the shiny Rapidash's colours are more subdued, as its mane is more grey than blue...so I decided to alter that, and depict it as having the brilliant blues of the shiny Ponyta!
Maybe in the future I'll do a more accurate painting. I'm sure the greys would look really ghostly :v
Had a bit of trouble with this, though.
If anyone is willing to do a critique, I'd be really grateful.
I had trouble mostly with the lighting, I wasn't too sure how to go about water reflections, or how the light bounces off a horse's muscles. I'm not too familiar with their anatomy just yet! D:
