Companions: Friendship by Saimain Companions: Friendship by Saimain
The first half of a "Companions" set featuring my original characters with their respective horses. This one is of Faeren with his little roan mare Manea. ^__^
Finally sat down and finished this over the course of the past week, 2-4 hours a day. Maybe 15-20 hours in total. Mechanical pencil and blending stick, but the background was digitally edited, as I decided last minute that I hated the pencil version and wanted to change it. I also played with the contrast.

You can see the companion piece featuring Morgan here:

I'll try and purchase something to help you move into your house, maybe this :)
The only thing I think you could improve upon with your horses is their ears - less wide, they tend to be a bit slimmer.
The intricacy is amazing, as is the shading.

I'll buy some of your prints one day - that's for sure,I don't know when but I will!
