War Horse by savageworlds War Horse by savageworlds
To commemorate my 500th pageview [me, patiently enduring the roar of applause], I hereby present: 'The Horse I Rode In On'.
This trusty steed is endowed with a genetically altered epidermal integument which permits it the ability to weather the same 'slings and arrows of outrageous fortune' that have been my bane since Back-in-the-Day.
Hope you enjoy!

(no pony rides until after the picnic)

nicely done! It feels like a relief sculpture on a horse lol. I wonder why you sharpened the hair in comparison to the horse though, it looks a bit blurry...jus a thought :)

Thanks for the compliment;) I was ambivalent about the mane when I first added it. The neck just seemed wrong without it, but my hair skills could probably use some improvement. If I were to do it over, I might make the mane more geometrical or "biomechanical" in appearance.

I have some unfortunate news; art4love dot com has been selling this print for $299 :( (sorry if you have already been informed) [link]

`alexiuss is gathering support for this large scale copyright infrengiment here [link]

savageworlds Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2011
Only $299 ?!! Ignorant Philistines! Gotta be worth at least $327.50! (just kidding, of course;))
Thanks for the tip. Seems like he is shut down for the moment, but I did fave the article that `alexiuss posted. I'm sure he'll pop up again under a different name.

No problem :) Alexiuss is trying to gather information to file a class action lawsuit, so if you have the time, it would help him out if you contacted him with information about your piece (I think he outlines what he needs in his description). The sorry ass who owns the site apparently made quite a bit of money from selling all that work he got from DA; supposedly enough to get insurance on his balls for 1.4 million :stinkeye:.

haha In any case, kudos for having such a humorous attitude about it ^_^ I admire that.

Greetings, Holly! (and welcome to DA!) Thank you for both the enthusiastic compliment and the fave. Glad you enjoyed my artwork. I have another equine painting in progress (a full body action pose this time), but I've had precious little time lately to work on him. Feel free to pop by for a visit anytime.
