At World's End

Commission for :iconpearlypony:


This is *PearlyPony's character Robert, in his Friesian form. I love all black horses, especially Friesians, so this was a real treat to me! It turned out a bit different from the original idea, but hopefully for the better.

She also requested a robin in the picture, as we both share the love for these gorgeous little beings. He was a little tricky to draw, and he still looks a bit out of place, but I tried my best.

I used a few references used for both the horse and the bird. It was the first time I've drawn a completely black horse, so I was a bit unsure about the highlighting.

Hope you guys like it! :heart:

Stunning! He reminds me a lot of one of my own characters (except for the coloring). How love to find out more about the process of getting a commission :)

Thanks :) I'm not sure whether or not I will be opening the commissions again anytime soon, but here's a very rough estimate of prices and the process [link] :)

This is very beautiful! I love the highly glossy look you've achieved with the horse's coat.
Absolutely gorgeous!

This is sooo beautiful! I love the bird, it gives the 'manly' friesan a soft side

What a beautiful Friesian! :wow: The rearing pose, with the tossed mane, really makes him look so majestic and powerful! I love the colouring and the shading, particularly the way you've made his coat look so glossy. The paler colours of the background also contrast nicely with his black coat. The robin is a nice touch too :D
