Your World Will Burn

Hey you! Feel free to download this to your computer, but don't use it anywhere on the internet without my permission, or you'll have me, my watchers, and my online buds to deal with. Don't be an art thief!

Commission for ~illusionistsmemories! This is her new character for The Secret [link] , one very nasty and very scary Antietam. Named after the bloodiest battle of the American Civil War!

I had a lot of fun with this one. I'm not afraid of fire anymore, guys! Bring on the fire pieces. I could've gone crazier with the wounds but I didn't want him to look like he's dying, or otherwise too injured to make that leap. Look at him, charging through all shining white like some kind of saviour. But this beastie's not gonna be saving anyone.

The quote is by Jean Rostand, and you'll find many different translations of it everywhere! Obviously, references to killing a "man" were left out on this version, since PONEHS BE KILLIN PONEHS, Y'ALL.

Specific comments are especially loved. I respond to all comments.

May I use this wonderful piece of art on Cimoron Island 2 as a new character?
adverbial-spectra's avatar
No, sorry, this is a paid commission for an active character on The Secret.

I must say, the mane and wounds in this are impressive, and naturally I am going to favorite this because the quotes on the image remind me so much of my character Hyde who is an assassin on an RPG I belong to :)
adverbial-spectra's avatar
Thank you. Hyde has an awesome name! I used to play a character named Hydenseek several years ago, he had a Jekyll/Hyde thing going on. But he was awfully tricky to play while still keeping up the homage! :XD:

Drawing blood is a lot more fun than drawing hair. :D
FervidsHand's avatar
Wahhh, I got his name from Jekyll/Hyde! He is one of my more tricky characters to play because he's so dark, takes a lot of muse to be "creepy" without being lame about it.

I hear you...I hate drawing hair, I try not to. I'm still considered a "smudger", I draw strands in when I feel its appropriate :P
adverbial-spectra's avatar
Drawing hair makes such a difference (more so in this case, cause he had no mane to begin with!), but I never want to do it! Only afterwards do I realize what an improvement it was on my smudged base. Then again, I'm a pretty destructive hair smudger, cause I know I'm just gonna cover up the colour/shape base with strandy goodness! :XD:

adverbial-spectra's avatar
I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by "horse fire shadow".
nikeao's avatar
Above word antietam there is something like shadow that looks like a horse
MyDuvelAndMe's avatar
Wow, nice work on the mane and the fire ^^
adverbial-spectra's avatar
Thanks! The original stock horse didn't have much mane to begin with, so I had to get creative with cloning the forelock for the colour base. The feathering was, thankfully, less of a pain. :XD:

It turned out really well ;)
