Finally it is DONE
I've never before put this much detail into a portrait, and I've probably never had this much fun painting one. This piece was commissioned by an irl friend of mine Emma (~Diddelidon
) of her horse Gunnar. He is the sweetest thing and he and Emma are actually helping me with getting rid of my horseback riding fear in return. So this commission meant a lot to me and for the first time I ever I actually got to see the horse in person whilst drawing him, which is amazing.
Since Emma is such an amazing photographer I got to use on of her awesome shots of him which made the whole process a lot easier. His 'dots' almost killed me though, holy cow there's a lot of them
Some changes might be made to the background etc, depending on what Emma thinks of it. I hope you guys all like it! Soon I'll post some details of it, since this pretty small version of it doesn't really show a lot of them
