Hale by RebeccaStapp Hale by RebeccaStapp
Hey, look! Pony art! I still remember how to horse...sort of.

Long overdue trade with the fabulous ^Astralseed. Look at the beautiful drawing of Cameo she did for me!

:faint: I forgot how bad I am at painting feathers... Also at SAI. In the end, I gave up and moved it to Photoshop for the final touches, but all of the actual painting was done in SAI. Except for the lame stars. :B

Hale is so epic...when I started this, he was still going for his wings, horns, and jewels (I think...I don't have my own so I'm not entirely certain how they work ^^;) and now he has them all! So I suppose this is a wee portrait of his past? :D


Hale belongs to ^Astralseed and she alone has rights to do whatever she pleases with this painting.

This is beautiful. I can't get over the way you did the feathers, they seem so tangible. And that background is simply to die for :heart:.

:O_o: Lol! I remember watching one of your streams when you were drawing some majestic critter in the clouds, wondering how the heck you were making the clouds so awesome. :XD: I still haven't figured it out! D: I support drawing more animals in the clouds, though!

Oh my, that is made of pure awesomeness and sparkles D:

But seriously, this is amazing! I love the pose and the subtleness of the clouds around him. And those yummy blue highlights on his coat <3 Wonderful work!
