No grabby hands thank you~


I've been working on-and-off on this for aaages, mainly because I have so much work to do that I've had very little time for art.
In retaliation celebration of uni finishing this week though, I sneakily finished this picture of Vaal because the poor boy has been neglected for so long! :giggle:


Just to refresh: Vaal was born into an Akhal-Teke herd that roamed a large steppe area, but he would eventually leave as he matured.

Must say he's looking quite adult these days!

This also turned out looking strangely like those prehistoric artist interpretations they have in mags like National Geographic O.o

Holy freaking cow! The lighting is amazing! The coat color is very unique is rather looks like a golden brindle with the play of light and shadow on it. I used to work at a stable and their thoroughbred stallion would come out of the stable in the morning land strike this pose when he was let out into the paddock. You have to show off in case there are any ladies present, you know.
