A portrait of my mama's childhood horse, Sunshine, an appaloosa mare. Apparently I made her really beefy compared to the actual horse (the only horses I've drawn before this were Clydesdales and Shires), but the coloring and the face were right!
This is a big experiment in digital painting, as opposed to making lineart and coloring it in. I think it went rather well! Completed in Manga Studio 5, which I'm still getting used to. The brushes are super responsive and the program itself is more streamlined toward digital art than the GIMP, strongly improving my workflow. Still took like 5 hours to do this, tho' :P
