Flint by swift-whippet Flint by swift-whippet
First trade piece for *ClarifiedAbstract. :heart: She decided to do me three wonderful pictures for our trade (well, I haven't seen the third one yet but I'm quite sure it's going to rock), so even though she said she was only expecting one back I decided to do three in return. It's not like I had an easy time making up my mind which characters of hers to draw anyway.. though the others may take a while to appear.

So here's her winged horse character, Flint (I seem to be doing a lot of equines these days.. but eh. He's got a lovely design) . I went back to basic cel-shading for this one and am happy with the result =) Yay for non-grass-brush grass!

I'm scrolling through my thumbnails and since I haven't deleted my messages for a few days, there were some from you already, so I'm just glancing and I'm like "oh a big blue horse!" and then I was like "WAIT. THAT'S MY BIG BLUE HORSE. THAT'S FLINT! SHE DREW FLINT. OMFC!"

And this time I calmed myself down enough to tell you everything I like about it but I'm still spazzing and AHH! It's so lovely! His feathers (on legs) are so fluffy and perfect, his mane and forelock and tail are just AH SO WONDERFUL, his wings are like awesomely awesome with the veining/hawk stripes, his anatomy is perfect, and the background with the grass and the dandelions going poof in the wind and you made him look so STRONG and FREE and it's so PERFECT and so HIM! (!!11!!one!one!1!!!one!eleven!11!!!) I like the way you did his stockings and exaggerated zebra stripes, they look exotic and wild and it gives him that little feral spark you sense in him if you ever spend time with him.

I reallly really really really like it and it's so cool and awesome and AH!OMFC thank you so so so so so so so much and I really needed to get a happyness today and it's perfect and you made me so happy and grah *kissesfeetgrovelsbowsfallsonheadanddiesh appy*

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! :heart:

LOL, I'm glad you like it so much 'cause I love your halves :glomp: I'm realising now though that I screwed up the shading in places. Somehow it's ALWAYS after you upload something that you notice all the flaws, agh. Shading hates me. But nonetheless, I'm glad that people like it.. honestly, I do too =)

Awws I'm glad you like what I did for you, and why WOULDN'T I like it? :heart: I don't see where you screwed it up, it looks fine to me! The litght's all coming from one direction and stuffs. And I love the shadow of his wing. Not something you see every day and not something I would have thought of! :)
