Rein the Heavens! by Neara-works Rein the Heavens! by Neara-works
Bucephalus ^^ My Freisian stallion I manifested to use in :iconHorse-artRPG:

Yus after the fantastic horse Alexander the Great had.

I seem to always do this sort of clouded limbo looking place whenever i want to draw something with alot of light XD not sure what i means but i do love how it looks :D

I sure enjoyed this :meow:

If you have any criticism please post :)

I really like the painting for a lot of reasons. More than that though I appreciate the amount of time and effort that apparently went into this, and I think its rather astonishing how much time you've put into developing your talent.

First off the accuracy of the anatomy is spot on. The legs really flow together, and your use of dramatic pose and foreshortening are difficult to do in the first place. The horses movement really give the painting a whole character and second life that it wouldn't have if it were just standing.

The lighting was also rather brilliant. You made it clear that the light source was overhanging and the sheen coming off the horses muscles really clarify that. Also they create and unusually clear sense of depth that is pleasing to look at. I was also considerably impressed with the way you illustrated the tail and mane. Again, they add to clarify movement and life in the picture.

Finally I'd say that the reflection was a very nice touch, along with the soft peach colored background giving the whole scene a warm, summery, dreamlike feel.

Thanks for the Fantastic Art!!

SWEET MONKEY JEHOSEPHAT NEA NEA IMMA CRY ;3;
its...so..Beautiful ;____;

This beauty really reminds me of my friend's horse Falcon, a beautiful gentle freisian. When i moved i had to leave her, but i still see her sometimees when i go to whales, but it does make me think happy thoughts ^^

Not only that, it is just fun to look at it, how shiny and sparkley he is, and i love those gorgeous green eyes <3

amazing job, definately a favorite of yours ^^

This is SO AMAZING NEA!!!

I adore this shading! Especially on the tail and mane! The reflection adds so much to this drawing for me. I love the little squiggly lines of light reflection, they are somewhat "messy" and they look like they came so easy for you, but they're so strikingly precise!

Lately your art has improved sooo much, it's amazing! I can't wait to see more of this style! <3

Thank You Tali!!!

Yeah I agree, I love the tail and main 030 inspiration from actual freisians, youngfoxclub, and Brave ^^. for me too I love that reflection xp and i wasn't so sure about the squigglies I thought they were too bold but looking at it I think it works ^^

Yeah it's because before I was focusing on an animal anatomy style now im focusing more on creating pictures and not just transparents ^^ but im glad you can see the change!! I can't really xpp

Anytime!! ^.-

oh yes the squigglies make this a lot more unique and stylized ^^

And have fun drawing things other than transparents more often from now own, since you're offering backrounds on your commissions. I'll have to make sure to keep an eye out for your livestreams, because I really want to watch you do some backrounds <3

Are you good with animations on photoshop? Or know any good tutorials? xD

hahaha, yeah it was more of like a vidoe class that had us working in a little bit of photoshop, dreamweaver, and adobe premiere in highschool. but the college one was specifically for photoshop i learned about effects (most of which i knew about) the technical workings of how to prepare documents for certain jobs, and techniques of how ot keep cleaner layers. Oh and save save save :XD: cuz programs can always freeze or crash on you xpp. even with all this technical growth computers are still unreliable xp.

Yeah there are bunch of tutorials out there for that and yes i do know how to do it too :D. lolz dont worry im a talker too :aww:
