This goes out to all my watchers, to everyone to favourites my work, to everyone to leaves a comment whether it is big or small! For all my good friends, the new and the old! To all those who inspire me and make me want to be a better artist! You all make deviantART such a great place to be, and the equine artist community a seriously awesome one to be a part of! Without you guys, I wouldn't be the artist that I am today!
Thank you to every single one of you for being so darned wonderful!! I hope you all have a truly happy and special Christmas, and a fantastic festive season if you don't celebrate Christmas! May it be filled with lots of love, happy memories and good times!
Trav and Russo are enjoying a very purple and snowy Christmas waaaay up north, just so they can see the Northern Lights! And they got a little dressed up for the festive season, and I think Russo should wear those ribbons more often! Perhaps he should wear mistletoe instead of holly on his head? Who knows what he'd get up to! All in the good spirit of Christmas!
Wow. I freaked out when I saw this GORGEOUS masterpiece!
Thank you so much for the kind words. I know they aren't to anybody in particular, but it was so sweet of you to say those things. Trav and Russo look SO amazing here, Dana! Their poses look great, and they look like they are really ready for Christmas to be here, again! I am such a darn LATE commenter! I wish I had commented earlier, I am so sorry. The anatomy, shading, and highlights look perfect, and I love the more realistic style. Great job of showing the muscles in their legs and necks, without making the shading wayyy too evident! Their expressions look amazing, too, with those cute sweet smiles. I love how their colors and markings are inverse, too, so it adds a contrast with both the white of the snow, and to each other! Those manes and tails look amazing, too, and I love the shine has a more realistic feel to it, not being way too evident. I just LOVE their Christmas decor! Now for the background. Where do I start!? The Northern Lights look amazing, and so does the pretty night sky. The snow is super pretty, and so are the trees and the mountains! Amazing job on this Christmas drawing, Dana! I can't wait to see more artwork from you!
