MD Intrepid by wideturn MD Intrepid by wideturn
Ok, so I worked on this for about 4 straight hours and I am very please with it. There are PLENTY of mistakes on it, but oh well. I used about 7 different refs for the horsie, most for the face. ^^ anyhoo, this is Intrepid. His personality is just what the name implies. He's extremely brave when confronted with new and scary things. He has never balked or spooked once at anything. He is not mean, in fact, when with other horses he's actually quite friendly, though most of the time he is seen away from the others; he's somewhat of a recluse. He seems to love running fast (especially faster than other horses) and rarely ever needs cropped or spurred. He really has a racing attitude.

Holy crap! He is soooo beautiful. You did a gorgeous job on him. I think I have to watch you. x) As soon as I have my TB mare, I surely have to breed her to him. Would it be possible to reserve / bookmark a breeding? :aww:

Also, the coloring is awesome. By any chance, do you have a tutorial anywhere for this?

He looks amazing! :heart:

I think my only big issue is the shine on his flank/thigh/hindquarters. The shine looks quite overdone, and in places where the muscle might not bulge all that much, and the center looks too dark for all that shine. I think on the white that's on his legs, you could add more detail, or fur markings there, but then again that could just be your style =D

Overall it's amazing! I love his face and neck! He has an awesome design. If you ever make adoptables, Please notify me, I'm still attempting to fix up my HARPG pages and such, so everything I do will take a while.

yea, I wanted him to be shiny, then it didn't go the way I planned. :P I have been thinking about doing adoptables, I might submit some soon. :D

Sweet!

I ended up making 6 adoptables. I started out with 9 or so, and then narrowed it down to the best 6 ones [link]
it took a while.

So if you do adoptables are you going to do just the designs? Or are you going to go WAMBAM shading? I thought about it a lot, and just ended up doing the designs.

Oh my god. :o THIS IS STUNNING. Like, I clicked the link and actually choked on my drink when it loaded.

And I don't do that often.

:heart:

That being said, I have decided that I would very much like an Intrepid baby. :meow: Can I breed him to my mare, Wealtheow?
