Forever Aedan by Niarbon Forever Aedan by Niarbon
Finally done!

I've been working on this image for months, it's my first digital commission. A gypsy horse that passed away much to early in his life. There are two versions of this portrait, a plain one and this unicorn one, which I like best.

Background I found very hard to do, need to practise a lot on that, but in the end I like this better then just basic flat backgrounds, eventhough it's not perfect (yet!)

As far as I could understand from the translater: No I can't allow other people using this image because it was a commission of someones real horse and I don't want those floathing around on the net ;) .

OHhhhh my gooodddnesss! Hims is a gorgeous big-boy! He's so a fave and I think you did great on the background for your first commision, my friend. Personally I really think its beautiful because I don't have a layering program to do this and I have not made a beautiful picture and background such as yours with define and delicate features, at least, not yet! You're going on my artwatch, keep it up you're doing good with your digitals!

You did very well on painting the horse. It looks realistic and I like how the eyes turned out. The background looks realistic too.
