DGR's Western Dressage Show All prizes given out! Thank you everyone for making the 2014 DGR Western Dressage Show a great success!DGR's Western Dressage Show9 months ago in Personal More Like This
RESULTS ARE UP! Wow, gals and guys, awesome work! Definitely made it hard on us to judge this... Our judging method of course was 50% how closely rules were followed, and then the second 50% was based on aesthetics. That first 50% was the crucial part in judging, and a lot of fine entries didn't quite get up there because things like the dirt road or audience stand weren't drawn, or some folks forgot to add their home state/country!
BUT, we had so many entries for this show, it was unbelievable! 22 of you brought amazing horses and riders. Wow, thanks everyone so much for making this show such a success. We had so many great entries, that we went ahead and awarded all the way down to 6th place, instead of just 3rd place! We've updated the prize section below for you guys, congratulations!

PLEASE READ ALL. WE MAKE SOME NEW IMPORTANT RULES AND ALL HOLLENDART’S OWNER NEED TO KNOW THEM! SO PLEASE READ THIS!
All you have to know about hollendart.
This breed is a cross between two existing warmblood breed: KWPN and sella italiano with spanish and friesian influence, to make them more elegant and strong. They exel in show jumping, dressage and also sometimes are good eventing horses. They have strong and muscled leg with a big and "bull" neck; the head has a straight profile and intelligent and curios eyes. For the most hollendarts have blue, grey or brown eyes, green and yellow are rare color; the coat can appear as any natural horse colour, but there are some "special" coats for example joker, striped, white back and tribal black: this are special markings that can appear only on pure hollendart, caused by additional genes; so if you breed an h

Nordanner Contest: Taco Slots + custom peafowl! New entries added!Nordanner Contest: Taco Slots + custom peafowl!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
KAARING LOWERED FOR TICKETS! Hope this makes it easier for some of you
3708 Dun Deal, aka. Taco, gets a lot of interest as a stud, especially to breed peafowls out of, and since I love to see active people owning and drawing his offspring, he only has a few slots left! So how can we combat this? Well! Since he's a natural Nordanner, he gets breeding bonuses when he reaches certain kaaring levels, as follows:
200 points – Horse is awarded 10 extra free breedings
400 points – Horse is titled Supreme Blood. Natural Nordanners are awarded unlimited breedings. However 100 of the kaaring must be done by the owners themselves
So I propose to hold a contest of sorts. You see, until he reaches 400 kaaring (he is currently around 70), I can't give everyone a slot. But when he reaches 200 kaaring, I c

can discuss it!
I'm looking for a unique character. I have no specific requirements, apart from I want him/her to be some kind of equine. Natural colors, unnatural colors, I don't mind. Feel free to use lines or in manipulated form, it doesn't matter! Enter as many times as you like.
- I like horns & antlers, uniqueness.
- I don't particularly like ram horns all that much.
- I like dapples, but not dappled grey because it's hard for me to manip
- a few little neon stripes, markings etc (not too many though) are cool
- cool face markings are important to me
- No bat wings, I find them hard to manip
- companions would be amazing
- trinkets/ accessories are optional, though it would be cool to see if it fits the design, but I also like it without.
There may be up to 3 winners!
1. 700 points, a complex manip from me, a header, pixel and headshot manip.

Underdogs who get ripped offI'm sure a lot of people get down and out about not getting views or favs. I'm probably down around I'd say 80%. And I know why. It's because I stopped posting color animals and felines doing cool magic stuff.Underdogs who get ripped off2 years ago in Personal More Like This
On this note, it's rather easy to be popular on dA. Do something cool, and neat in color and be nice to everyone, even the bonafide jerks and hide your tracings and stealing well.
Of course not everyone popular does this crap. But a good amount does, a good amount meaning I feel it should be 0 but I already know 5 who does this out of the 100s I've seen. (I don't watch them though of course )
On this note if you see anyone on dA taking the easy way out on art who gets defensive or emo over their art, but ALSO causes you grief, just remember that they aren't being true to artistry. Anyone who does the drama llama over art isn't an artist imo.
That's why I'm a true fan of the underdogs on dA, especially the ones that get ripped off.
SAI pressure sensitivity SOLUTION!!!Now, there has been a lot of problems over this I'm gonna tell you what to do with some handy screenshots.SAI pressure sensitivity SOLUTION!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It gets really annoying when you loose pressure sensitivity and you're in the middle of drawing and that is because sometimes SAI can lose you're settings, after you have been told to remove all preferences and that, you, like me, may get no response from your pen but only when you press hard on it. I have found a great solution.
This might not work for all users, because of the type of laptop and the type of tablet because it has no sensitivity installed on it at all., but I hope that this will work for you.
Note: Before we go on I forgot to say that you need a tablet, Wacom preferably and you also have to have purchased SAI.
So, thats what it looks like. yours might be different though, but the next steps will help. Go to Others - Options - DigitalSupport

Horse Power In Art History
Power & Grace In Motion
Above and beyond that, a unique aesthetic beauty unmatched by any other living creature in creation. There is the reality of the horse and there is the idea of the horse. Combined in a single construct, a special art has existed to celebrate the horse since the first human artists used the stone walls of their cave dwellings as the first canvases. Watching Werner Herzog’s 2010 documentary on the Chauvet Caves in southern France, Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010), gives one a sense of the powerful bond of human and horse, of the capture of early humanit

SALES & LEASING
I decide whether I sell/lease a horse or not, if I do, it will be marked as "for sale".You do not have to notify me if you bought a horse from me and want to sell it again; it's your horse and you can manage it as you please ! Unless stated otherwise, offer me anything as payment, we can always work things out (: If I sold you a horse and you don't use it at all, please feel free to give it back to me. It's not a must; though I think it's better than letting it sit around. I will not return the payment, but I will try my best to rehome it or even find motivation for it myself.
is only possible if it is stated on the horse's reference (or the "Lease" journal) that it is up for leaseYou can lease a horse for 3 or 6 months You may not
