Ivezho: Part 1/2, Trade with whimzi

I can't even look at photoshop anymore again ok so just yeah I need a minute

This is :iconwhimzi:'s adorable Ivezho. At least I think he's adorable. She asked me to do a trade a while back and I've been struggling with her other character (the first half of the trade) so I skipped ahead a little bit and went for Ivez. I've had the composition of this piece planned as soon as I found that horse stock--the animation, however, was not planned. Basically I was scrolling through Ivez's profile and realized he had passive magic I didn't even know about to glow like an ember from inside. And I said, that's cool, I should show that, but then I was kind of sad because it meant getting rid of the lovely silver theme I had going on and all the grullo color changing I did. SO I WAS LIKE: I gues I'll animate it even though I've never done that before! And then I DID! Other than the fact that this is my FIRST TIME ANIMATING (hence it being a little rough,) the only real departure from my usual is going the less colorful route and sticking with greys--I usually am all like BRIGHT COLORS EVERYWHERE, as you who follow me may have noticed.

Want a manipulation like this? Commissions are open and I am currently running a watcher raffle.
