A change in the wind by Starhorse A change in the wind by Starhorse
Wanting to challenge myself stylistically, I feel like I've finally hit on something with this one. Good old Shasta, haven't drawn her in ages. Also, not really a 'media horse' in the true sense of the series, but I'll put it in anyway since it's pretty similar. 

Pen and ink, gouache, watercolor, colored pencil, and graphite. And liquid gilding, which by the way KILLS brushes.

Ah! I love seeing people use mixed media, especially when they pull it off as well as you did here! Mmm, her mane and those clouds go so well together. And she has the coolest leg markings! :D

Gorgeous! A lovely example of mixed media! And it's always nice to see artists bringing back older characters.

Ooooh, I like. This'd be a great style for a children's book about horsies.
Gah, we need to have a talk about lines. I want to do a style that's painterly but also has comic lines. This is approaching it, but ... yes ... technique talk sometime.

Yeah, technique talk would be good. I'm like 'ooh, stylized, yeah! But still realistic. And with epic backgrounds, and atmosphere! And patterned everywhere still though...' 

too many contradictions.

Starhorse Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2014  Professional General Artist
it's like, really gold looking gold paint, for accenting. It's not an acrylic, as far as I know, since it has a solvent smell when you open it, and as  I found out last time, water doesn't wash it out of brushes sufficiently DX 

It's really pretty looking though irl, and I've found I can use one of my dip pens and now we get along fine.
