I'm sure I'm not the first one to ask this but: Have you heard the song titled Sleipnir by Manwar?
Awesome picture of an amazing steed. ;) :thumbsup:

I do know it! Manowar is such an awesomely cheesy metal band. I want to go see them another time before they decide they're too old to tour.

He is extremely interesting! I aught to delve back into Norse lore and start drawing more of it.

Great job, I love how you managed to keep him looking graceful despite all those legs.

I have featured your artwork at Mythical Creature Archive with credit back to you.
If I misunderstood your permissions and you'd like me to take your art off the site, please contact me and I will take it off immediately. I don't want to steal anyone's art, just provide more exposure to artists.

I really love the pose in this picture. It's so lively and full of energy :D

I have a six-legged horse character that I've been trying to draw for a while, but the extra limbs have been giving me some trouble ^^; would it be alright with you if I could reference this picture for a drawing of her? I'll link credit back to the original image of course, but if you don't want me to, then that's fine as well :)

Thanks!
Only I just found out, that apparently he's white? Although all the images I've seen were black! Oh well!

Actually, I think he's dapple grey? Anyway, the art is stunning.

Not a big deal. You did a fanastic job with all the legs, not an easy task.

Thank you! I used grey's book of anatomy to see and draw my skeleton first, that helped immensely.
