This is Sleipnir, the eight-legged warhorse of Odin.

Someone told me once, that he should be white, but I always imagined him as a black stallion.

This is beautiful, but I do believe he is supposed to be dapple grey? But anyway, Sleipnir's anatomy is difficult, but you've managed it nicely. Very well done.

Thank you so much! :heart:
Yeah, I heard from several people now that Sleipnir is supposed to be grey or white. But as I drew this pic I didn't know about this. ;) I just imagined him to be black LOL

Great pull of with the anatomy and composition of the multiple legs

And yes, Sleipneir was grey, the someone who told you he was white should get his mythology strait.
Or actually, sleipneir was a roan (constant grey/black mane and tail)

Yeah, I think that Sleipnir is grey. Have to read it again in my books, but I think that sleipnir means "Der Graue" o.o

Anyway, this picture is splendid! Sleipnir's anatomy is such a bitch to so when he's not galopping, but on this image it just looks authentic. Very nice job!
