A while back I posted some progress pictures of a piece of art, four Horses of the Apocalypse, I was working on for someone. I realized today that I never posted the final product. I was working off of a photo my mom found on the internet, but the I kind of gave myself artistic license with the colors. 😄
It turned out okay, but I am pretty critical about my artwork and I can almost always find something I could have done better. For instance, the colors on this one aren’t blended nearly as well as “Rosie.” And these are just photos of a drawing (I don’t have any of that high tech scanner stuff 😉 ) but I guess as long as my mom is happy with it (and I don’t have to look at it all the time), it’s all good.
Four horses of the apocalypse (without the horsemen. ) Commission is in quotes, because it implies I am getting paid. Haha! I am doing this one for my mom, at her request. Pencil and Prismacolor. I am almost out of black pencil.
I did a small felt tip, pencil, and Prismacolor for my friend’s daughter’s room, a reproduction of the Shel SIlverstein’s poem “Hug O’ War” and accompanying artwork. Tried to emulate the squiggly style of the original art as best I could (was actually some work!)
My little girl loves My Little Ponies: Friendship is Magic, so I decided I’d draw up some custom ponies for her. These ponies will be based on the current art style of MLP:FIM, but I wanted to do some more…cutting edge ponies, with my own themes and “cutie mark” ideas.
Now, I debut my first pass at the Daryl Dixon Pony. This female little pony is complete with Daryl’s trademark casually messy hair, crossbow, “ear” necklace… And I added some fingerless gloves (ponies don’t have fingers anyway 😉 )a biohazard “cutie mark.”
My dear long distance friend Dianda lost the family furbaby a short while ago.
You can read about Rosie here. I really love this pic of Rosie all stretched out, so I decided to do a portrait of her for D.

I haven’t got to do much art lately due to time constraints, other priorities, my two year old’s penchant for stealing my art supplies… Sometimes I worry I’m too out of practice, so I am pretty pleased with how the portrait is going so far. And a little bit afraid of messing it up.
I’ll post the final whenever it’s done. I initially wanted it to be a surprise for D, but I was too excited when it started to look good, and who knows when I’ll feel like I’m finished with it.
