Golden Boy by PonyCool42 Golden Boy by PonyCool42
Here I was playing around to create a horse painting that works more as a stand-alone piece, and experimenting with composition and whatnot too. The result is a portrait of handsome boy Hermes looking quite a bit more grown up. :D

Absolutely love the golden details, especially the circle is a great eyecatcher. I like how you did detailing on the muzzle ^^

Hehe, thanks so much! You just made me think of how in Horse Isle it would automatically change the word 'god' into 'unicorns'. Always gave me a little giggle. :)

Oh, thank you so much my dear. Your comments are always such a treat. :)
I have been seeing a few lovely artworks lately that feature a bit of gold in them and wanted to give it a go myself. I'm glad you like the effect! :glomp:
