THIS HORSE IS NOT A DAPPLE GREY.
His name is Austin, he's a Silver Black Tobiano Gyspy Vanner (his geno is EE aa Zz Tt). His coat greys out in the winter and in the summer he has a rich chocolate coat. If you make a character based on him please keep this in mind.
A "hand" is measured in lots of 4 inches. So it's 15hh, 15.1hh, 15.2hh, 15.3hh, 16hh etc
nPrl CrCr or PrlPrl nCr or PrlPrl CrCr CANNOT EXIST.
Pearl and Cream occupy the same locus, so a horse that has both genes present can only ever be nPrl nCr.

Pretty much the same reason as above. This is also true of Sabino and Dominant White (though hopefully there aren't any WW horses out there because they probably should be... not born?)

KEA Cross-Country Trailsgo here for pre reg!KEA Cross-Country Trails1 week ago in Personal More Like This
KEA Cross-Country Trails is a big event hosted by Kurokitsune-E-A (Kurokitsune Equine Academy), who specializes in cross country.
The cross country course is the size of a whole mountain range that surrounds the Academy in Greenland.
The trails are to be held later on this year, and by then the academy will be complete, with plenty of diagrams and illustrations to help you understand the area you'll be competing in.
Each jump will be named and illustrated, so you know what level this competition will be. It is going to be the extremes of cross-country, certainly not for the beginner, novice or intermediate, only professionals.
As expected for a mountain range course this won't just take you a few minutes, but several hours to complete. It is recommended only the fittest horses with plenty of experience and training should take part.
The weather is unpredictable, but wi
10 tips about drawing #3 - ShadingThird round of 10 simple and effective tips about drawing, this time a bit more spesific, time to delve into shading, the one area I feel I have progressed the most.10 tips about drawing #3 - Shading2 years ago in Personal More Like This
**This is my own personal take and oppinion about shading, take it with a grain of salt **
1. Shade and blend An extremely common way to shade, but not only overused but more often than not used incorrectly.
You lay down a value pref. with an HB or softer pencil and blend it into the paper from the dark to the light, but the thing here to remember is to not go too hard in blending at first, if you do it is very tricky to manipulate the values after.
Think of the tooth of the paper like grass, don´t just stomp them down on the first go, gently grace the paper with a blending stump/tissue/q-tip etc and once you start to approach the desired value you can go a little harder.
2. Directional blending Much as 1. but directional blending means you always blend following the curve of what you are drawi

Samhain: Dante's Inferno is an interactive adventure here on deviantART to help us celebrate Halloween. It is sponsored by a small group of Community Volunteers and a few select community members and backed by Community Relations. The adventure will begin on October 10th and end on October 31st.
In the fourteenth century, an Italian poet named Dante Alighieri composed one of the most influential collections of poetry of all time: The Divine Comedy. In the first book, Inferno, Dante himself ventures through Hell, guided by the spirit of the Roman poet Virgil.
Samhain is a Sabbat, or blessed day of festival, that some Wiccans and some other pagan traditions celebrate in October. It is the day in which the spirits of the dead are closest to us, a day to celebrate those who have passed before us.

Respect...I'm not sure what has happened to DA lately, but sadly I'm noticing more and more people are becoming rude and obnoxious when commenting on others work. This isn't just my work, I've noticed it across the whole site.Respect...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It seems some people think it's absolutely ok to insult people, with absolutely no provocation, other than the fact they don't like their work or are jealous for some reason (the person's work makes them feel bad about themselves or they feel the person is getting more attention than them, for what they consider invalid reasons).
If you have something constructive or relevant to say about someone's work, no matter how negative, then that is absolutely ok. But to just be negative or plain rude to make yourself feel better, is never ok under any circumstances. Think before you type, how would you feel if someone wrote what you were about to write, to you, your partner or your friend? Would you find it helpful, hurtful, insulting? Would you have the guts to

I have 4000 friends who follow my work and hundreds of fav every day (and that makes me great pleasure). Until today I wanted to tell you directly how I', grateful, but now I work 1 or 2 hours at the computer to thank, and commitments will not let me anymore.

Don't ART for free ...Note written under the influence of several recent situations ...Don't ART for free ...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I understand that not everyone can/like/love to draw - but that does not mean that some people have to treat 'drawing people' as children. A few days ago my friend asked me if I draw him a portrait of him and his girlfriend. I agreed without hesitation ... But when I told how much the portrait will be cost - he was angry with me, that I will not do it for free! I understand that it is my friend - but I spend my free time, energy, etc. on it. So it's no longer just fun for me. It becomes a way of life ...
I wish that those of us - involved in the drawing - were taken more seriously. Because it is a job like any other. Not sitting behind a desk in an office does not mean that I do not work as hard ...
The situation is very well illustrated here:

Photomanipulation walkthroughStep 1: Idea (message, composition)Photomanipulation walkthrough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You decided that you want to make a photomanipulation. But what to make? There are so many photomanipulations already out there and mostly with the same theme. So you decide you don't just want to stick a pretty girl onto a beautiful background. No you want to be original and have your manipulation portray a message everyone can relate to.
Think of things that are important to you, that lay close to your heart. They can be emotions (love, hate, sadness, anger) or experiences, hobbies (art, sports etc), things you are struggling with. Or they can be global themes like (beauty, money, economy, eating disorders, war, relationships etc.)
Of course if you choose to portray something as love there are many ways to do so. Do you want it to be a surreal depiction of love, or dark, fantasy, sci-fi, conceptual, humourous... your choice will of course decide the whole 'feel' of the image.
So choose wisely as they say.
Now that you have your theme you nee
7 Things I use to do when I draw-I try to sharp my pencils with art knife like this http://www.laferreteriadigital.com/imagenes_web//7031345.jpg several times to get well the tones and details.7 Things I use to do when I draw3 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Sometimes I'm lazy to do it, but when I do it constantly I get better results.
-I try the tip be long so u can handle better the pencil.
-The best pencil to me to make many of my works is the 6B 'cause I can get good blacks pressing hard and can manage the soft grey tones.
-Also try your art knife be well sharp and be careful when you use it to don't hurt your fingers and be careful about don't break the tip.
-Hold the pencil on the midle or further than the tip. If u press close to the tip your hand will shake more.
-Try to clean ur hand after sharping to don't get your work dirty even if it is just a sketch so you save time in case u get ur paper dirty and u'll have a good quality of ur work.
