Aaron and Ling Commission

341 Favourites
A sketch commission for the lovely :iconhelloheath:!
You're my best customer, sweetness! I love drawing your characters! :aww:

From left to right, this is Ling and Aaron, two of =helloheath 's original characters from her story "Terratoff"!
edit: Aaron (the pegasus) is a BOY and Ling (the other) is a GIRL for those who are curious.

I actually used horse references this time to get the anatomy right. I only had to make once adjustment in Photoshop on Aaron's right front leg (the foreleg was a bit too long). I hope I didn't make him too big. He looks really huge compared to Ling. >_>

Done in pencils.
Textures and color added in Photoshop CS3
Texture from *ro-stock

Lovely! I think they turned out really nice. You do such beautiful work. I really like the lines and the shading.

I used to ride horses, and there were horses of so many different sizes in our stables, the size difference didn't even give me pause. :)

Thanks! :hug: I'm glad the size difference isn't too bad. I think I over-worry about my work sometimes >_> I need to learn to chill! XD

They're perfect (take it from someone who been riding for over half their life.) I particularly love the mane and tails and of course the wings. It's okay that the male looks bigger, horse sizes vary just as much as humans. It doesn't upset the balance of the drawing and it also makes him look more masculine and powerful while she looks more feminine. I don't know if that was what you were aiming for but it looks as it is.

aww Thank you! I have been worrying about the size issue all day and I even tried to fix it in photoshop last night and totally failed. It was really late (about 2:00am) and I was getting so sleepy and so frustrated. I'm so happy to hear that you think it looks ok and especially since you've been around these animals for so long I'm glad they're anatomy looks ok to you. :aww: Your comment means a lot :hug:
