Autumn Falls by Equinus Autumn Falls by Equinus
Trav is back! :iconlawooplz:

And so is Autumn! :( I'm not such a big fan of the season, even though it's quite a pretty and colour season. But I'm a summer person, I love the greens and the blues and the flowers, and the sunshine! :D

But anyway! I was at a LAN this weekend, and while I had was downloading series and movies, I was watching ~BrokenHoofbeats's streaming, and it was really inspiring! :aww: So I broke out the Photoshop, and started drawing! :w00t: I had so much fun, it was really fantastic to just draw for a while! :XD: And seeing as it's autumn, thought I'd try doing something autumnal! I tried something a little different, a new way of drawing manes - what do you guys think? I feel like I need to spice my style up a bit, it feels so bland... so feedback would be really appreciated guys! :la:

This will probably be the last bit of art for a while, still working on commissions, but not much personal until holidays hit in a few weeks!

Really beautiful piece. Wonderful colors and outstanding detail.

How do you get the work from Photoshop to deviant art? I've tried to upload several images I've done and couldn't.

This is gorgeous-I adore autumn colours, makes back to school so much nicer if you wake up to golden trees and sunlight :love:
I love the pose and the painted like shading :heart: I do think her forelock needs a bit more thickness and fly aways-the top looks very flat-apart from that, I do like these new manes and tails :nod:
Amaaazing :clap:

Oh wow, Dana! This is super beautiful!! :love: Especially for a frontal view! I hate those so much!!! :aww: Trav looks sooooooooo pretty!!!!!! Her shading is so stunning :) I love those trees in the background. They're so simple, yet they really complete the picture :aww: I'm glad to see Trav again!! And I'm glad my livestream could be inspiring :) Thanks for stopping by again! I really should get drawing again, that picture I did on livestream wasn't even good enough to put on my DA I think, LOL!

Again, this is so pretty. The last time I scrolled up before posting my comment I thought of Trav looking like a big lion or something walking through the African savannah or something :P I love it!
