Twilight, of the Black knight
A mysterious Black Pegasus

The original can be seen on my websites gallery [link] . the print is also available for purchase


Well Im really Happy with how this one turned out
I think maybe I should draw the black knight with such details sometime
This pic is actually for a good friend of mine IRL
I hope she likes it

some critique would be really helpful if possible
Tell me what you think?
Did I depict a mysterious twilight with the atmosphere?
This is a very tough guy so I hope he looks it
XD

The hard work, and all the love and heart that you put in all of your artworks can be clearly seen. I can totally see the effort you put into this stunning piece, and I am so glad I found this artwork because it is so... I don't know how to put it but the best choice of words would be... REFRESHING! >8D Because I love the epic blue colors that are in this picture and I love how the colors of the majestic creature complement and look amongst the colors of the BG as well as the beautiful celestial object! The colors just remind me of a place hidden deep in my mind. Just an extremely lovely work this one be, my friend! Keep it up 'cuz I shall be watching! ;)

Great! Thats really what I want people to feel when they look at my artwork, its what I've always hoped. Thanks for bringing back a little hope to my mind.I'm really happy that I can create this feeling in peoples minds. I wish more people could live off the happiness of something so simple. This one will always be one of my favorites, though I can never pick between this one and the original [link]

Hello, Thank you for submitting to :iconartists-of-equus: Critique Night. Here is your feedback from last night!

^Jumpergirl303^ LOVE the colours!!! But I would recommend making the head a good deal larger and the shoulder and hindquarters a bit smaller. Great job

^fetherhd^ I like the detail in his wings...maybe make his head a little larger and his hooves a little smaller

^NewAgeStables^ This piece has a great colour scheme to it; everything has contrast but fits together at the same time. I compliment you on your wings and the detailing in the feathers; I could never do that without several hours of study. As for the horse itself: The front legs feel awkward. They look as if they connect at the front of the chest, which is not the case in horses. I would also thicken the tail; it feels useless there; it also seems odd that it is so flowy when nothing suggests a wind to let it travel that direction. I would also make the head and neck larger while minimizing how large the shoulders and withers currently are.

^Reticant-Nemesis^ I really love the colours and how they sort of bounce off each other. However, the only thing is that the shoulder/head looks a bit out of proportion.

this is beautiful ~!!

i really love how you did the wings.. could the shoulder of the horse be too big? or is the neck and head to small..

i really like the mane and tail. i looks really pretty. the swirls in the background gives it all a nice touch. however the moon looks like it doesnt belong there. maybe it has to do with shading or something..

overall this is a beautiful piece of work and i think you have a lot of talent ^^

Thanks, I really appreciate your bit of Crit here as I haven't drawn many truly detailed horses.

Your probably right about the proportions which were also pointed out in the chat by others, I never really noticed until it was

Perhaps I should have blurred the moon slightly?

Thanks again
Little-Hercy's avatar
you're welcome ^^

the people in the chat were really good. they helped me alot maybe blur it.. im not so sure xD

Yeah me either, I think I would have to re-do the whole piece. Maybe another time
Little-Hercy's avatar
dont redo it.. the wings are amazing and the horse is just as good!!
sammacha's avatar
sammachaHobbyist General Artist
If i re-do it, it would be a totally new picture anyways ;)
