finished finally, though it didnt take quite as long as it says as i left the window open for an hour when i got distracted

How fluffy.
Delicious ;)

violet @ 2014-08-05 00:35:58     
Amazing detail! I can see the effort you put into this. Well done.

aka @ 2014-09-26 18:06:05     
This is great! I love when birds are at that half-fluff stage with down peeking out. Great balance of detail in foreground v background, too.

Speedpainting... more or less. Paint Horse... not too accurate, I will fix some things later on o.o

aka @ 2013-03-31 21:27:51     
This is really lovely, especially for only 49 minutes. You include some really superb musculature without going overboard. the level of contrast on this one is warm and welcoming. The only piece of criticism I can think of is that the muzzle seems a tad on the slender side.

I'm happy to see you draw another image, and I hope you'll come back! I miss the days when it wasn't just me on this board. :)

Narsilia @ 2013-04-02 06:16:28     
@aka thank you :) and I will draw here more often ^^ it's really fun to do it again after all the years without oekaki!

aka,
you brought joy back to the Zoo!
Thanks ;)

aka @ 2013-02-19 11:36:47     
Haha, thanks, Tish. I am glad to see you are still hanging around here. I am going to try to draw a lot more regularly around here, and I'm hoping it might catch on. I miss when these boards were active, and I'd love to see that happened again.

Incidentally, I can't get my main page to display the Zoo in the list. Is that just me?

It shows for me no problem.

Law school is on break, and I thought "I should draw a pretty bird." I think this is a juvenile kingfisher hanging out on some pavement.

edit: last ref link didn't work. let's try this one. http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lw1tetboEC1r87s1ho1_500.jpg

Nice job. Very fine detail in this.
I think thing in front of it is a batterfly; but that's the light-green squiggle around that would be left ear?

uhtr @ 2013-02-13 01:07:15     
Thanks! Actually, it's a piece of grass.

Narsilia @ 2012-10-12 12:23:03
Wow. The last time I actually drew Oekakis was 10 years ago. Guess I'm a little out of practise, but it seems I improved in general when it comes to drawing ^^

Used a little reference for the shape of the head (Arabians are really a pain . )

aka @ 2013-02-19 11:42:35     
Great bone/muscle structure and lighting. The eye and cheekbone are particularly attention-grabbing.

The excessively bright highlights give him almost a wet look, like the horse has just finished a long day of hard work on a hot day. I'm not sure if that's intentional. While it does help draw attention to the face, I think somewhat more placid tones on the nose and muzzle would change the tone of the image to something more relaxing, without disrupting the flow of the picture.

Narsilia @ 2013-03-26 08:44:02     
Thanks a lot for your comment! Next time I will take more care about the light :) it really looks like he got a shower ^^;

Lushi1421 @ 2013-10-01 20:02:24     
Very good draw :3 The lights and shadows are very well done ^^

cupcakepitbull @ 2015-01-26 19:26:03     
It looks like my real horse sunny i love the mane :)
