Fast Forward by Agaave Fast Forward by Agaave
Here is a peek to the future when my Cavitto stallion Sidus will be full grown. I don't want to age him yet but I couldn't think anyone else more fitting to these lines than my aurora borealis boy. :heart:

Ha, Ha, Ha! I will admit it is so thrilling to see pics move from line-art to a picture that shows love and effort.

I should post more progress shots but I when I start drawing I usually get so wrapped up in the process so I totally forget to take photos or scans... :roll:

Well that's okay, believe me you don't want to drop your groove when making something cause you don't know when it'll come back.

Nuuuu, can't steal my baby Sidus! :nuu:
But isn't he a handsome lad, I really should draw him more or he might go and visit your Cavitto herd and never come back... :panic:

Hehe, he might have to make a visit one of these days and wander around with his daddy so they can be their beautiful selves together :dummy:

Ooooo, that sounds like a wonderful idea! :excited:
I have also planned on drawing Sidus with his parents for ages but so far it is just an idea on my endless ideas-to-draw-list... ^^;

Jaiks, kiitos paljon! :tighthug:
En minäkään malttais, mutta toisaalta tahtoisin pitää kaikki aina ja ikuisesti varsoina! :noes:
Tai sitten "aikuistan" tämän tapauksen pian ja piirtelen vaan flashback-varsakuvia koko ajan...

Mutta toisaalta saa piirtää minkäikäisenä vaan :) Ei kannata liikaa huolehtia "virallisesta" iästä, kuviahan voi sovitella tarinaan sit myöhemmin xD

askdjflakajsk - how?  Just how?!?

This is just so beautiful.  I don't even know what it is about this - but I seriously think it might be one of my new all-time fav's.  Sidus is gorgeous and elegant - just the perfect model (not to mention so handsome all grown up).  And his mane... can I please steal your hair skillz?  The colors you used for the background compliment him so stunningly, and I really like the extra white splatters. 

It's just all around gorgeous and elegant, and I can't explain how much this one speaks to me.  :heart:

Thank you very much for those kind words! :glomp:
I am really glad you like this! This is just a simple portrait but I kinda like this also myself - which is rare because I am always nitpicking my own works.
I guess there is something special in Cavitto stallions which makes them gorgeous models? ;P

Dude, they make some seriously gorgeous models... and let's face it, Sidus is at the very top of that list!  :la:  You should definitely like this one (even if we are all our own worst nitpickers) - because the entire thing is so beautiful (I just can't can't say it enough). 
la in love

Wow o_o that mane is perfect! I love all details you put to the every single hair. Also I love background colour and paterns!

His eyes are so lively - I love that wise sight. Perfect horse portrait.

I thought spacey background would match with Sidus' aurora borealis markings but then I forgot the dang markings... :roll:
Tried to add a hint of blue on his neck so that there would be at least a try. ;P
