AMERICANA / EXOTICA by lunarblues AMERICANA / EXOTICA by lunarblues

and a free wind blowing through your hair !



EDIT: painted over both the mane and tail and i think it looks way better !! phew ~
i also made them a bit whiter, but i ... i don't think anyone can actually tell. oops.

but otherwise this piece came out exactly the way i wanted it, ho ho ho ~ @ < @
this baby is phoenix, a monstrously cool cat for the thrice as cool *TheSilverBells !
he lives in a sparkly desert cave and does magic and looks goofy and i love him.
first time i've used *Colourize-Stock's draggie in literal years and it was a blast !
(also i have been doing loads of " flying " ponies lately hahaaa sorry about that)
hope you all dig it as much as i doOoOo do do !!
continues ignoring her growing pile of unanswered comments


* other art of phoenix !!

Stalking this because it's so pretty. 
Must admit that I've had days where I search for this piece to just gaze in aw at.
Today is one of those days.

Those colors, the vividness and ugh. 
Much love.

Oddly, I keep coming back to this manip. I thought it was odd at first, until I zoomed in, and realized the pristine detail and gorgeous effects. The edges are so clean, the feathers are so perfect, the hooves are glorious. I can't explain my feelings, it was so weird, but so perfect. Love this, it makes me wonder. It portrays emotion.

title from fall out boy?! c:

i have actually never seen anything like this ( and that's saying something, considering the vast amount of horse manips on dA ), and i absolutely love it. the high contrast and red colors are my favorite part.

I don't know why but this screams 'hang me up in an art gallery'
Wait I do know; because it's probably the coolest thing I've seen in forever. That colour change it's just absolutely spectacular and the headdress has so many wonderful details I might go on forever but I'll spare you my endless chatter. The hair is amazing, and that skull face. Whoa just wow girl, let me idolize you and this kk? Okay. :heart:
