I have no idea what I had in my mind when I picked colors for this drawing.
I don't hate or dislike those colors; that combo is just... weird. :shrug:

Splatters are awesome tho. :bucktooth:

I love drawing feathers, they take too much time but are always worth it in the end. ;P

You are welcome!

And you draw feathers super pretty! Mine somehow end up looking like leaves xD

Mine also often look more like leaves than feathers but I don't mind, both are pretty nature subjects so there is no harm mixing them up. :giggle:

Well you succeeded with feathers on this one :dummy:
And agreed, as long as it's not supposed to be wings haha xD

Yeah, I guess it would make flying pretty much harder if the wings were made of leaves instead feathers. :giggle:

I think that you had Neriel on mind, even though you didn't know.:D
It's a weird combo, but I like the contrast it makes and I think that these colors seem awesome together.:) I love how you made the hair and feathers, sometimes I am really sorry that I didn't choose something fluffy hairy and feathery as an avatar.:D

Aww, thank you very much! :glomp:

And what comes to feathery avatar/fursona/main oc; if you had one with lots of feathers and fur and other complex details it would be pain to draw her every time. Even if the design like that might look gorgeous, repeating it would take too much effort. ;P

Hehe, that may be the truth, I should be glad that I have chosen such a simple avatar and made it variable so that I could play with the design whenever I paint her.:D I perhaps could try to paint her with fur once, but I'm not sure if it won't look non-nerielous and terrible - I'm a bit afraid of it.:D

Agaave Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hey, that sounds like a great idea! It would be fun to see Neriel with fur - and if you don't like the result you can always destroy the picture and forget that you ever even tried. :D
But I am sure it would just look interesting and cute. :heart:

:iconnerielmi:
NerielMi Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, that's surely an option.xD I guess that when I already painted her as a magpie nothing should scare me.:D But I still didn't get the Awesome Idea, drawing just a ball of fur without meaning is a bit boring for me, I would never finish that while considering it as a picture for myself. But as soon as I'll get the Idea, I'll try it, thank you for encouraging me.:hug:

I hope you'll get that Awesome Idea some day but if not, it is ok, because Neriel is gorgeous also in her normal form. :heart:

It has been WAAAY to long since I saw stuff from you. And I don't know why you say the color combo is weird, cause it really works. Reminds me of early fall as the leaves start to change colors.

Finally there it is!
And i really like it how this turned out.
The color combo is not very usual but looks great. AT least, i like it XD
Especially the coloration of the tails is great.
I like the transitions of the green/turquois into the yellow.
I think just the mane looks a little bit pale.
I'd have chosen a similar yellow as you used for the tail :)

I also like the colors of the background. the whoe picture reminds me of the feeling of an hot but wet summer day xD I don't know why. ^-^
Anyway, great job.
Can't wait to see more pictures with 'weird' color combos :)

Agaave Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yay, thank you for the feedback! :dummy:

Your hot and wet summer day interpretation sounds nice; People have also mentioned ocean so maybe there is some kind of "warm day at a beach" going on...
Hence pale mane could refer to sand! :w00t:
Nah, no explanations; I admit the mane could be brighter. :D

Oh and no worries, there definitely will be more weird color combinations in my drawings! ;P

I like the 'Beach-Theme'.
This is exactly what you need in such a cold season ;)
Some warm thoughts and the imagination of a day on the beach ^-^

Well, sand.
It's difficult to draw this kinda color.
You could use just a dark brown color to add some shadings ^-^
The color will be the same but it won't look so pale i think :)

Okay I don't hate the combo of the colors on the horse
in fact I'm wearing that exact combo today ^^;, they look gorgeous and that
shade of green is just perfect for her.
The only thing that's kinda itching me is the blue in the background.
..I guess maybe if the field of yellow was a bit wider it would set the horse
a bit more free, this way it feels like the blue is about to swallow it up...I think...I mean...
it's an wonderful peace of work and you haven't lost the touch for the colors at all! It's
just... I feel like you struggled a bit while doing it...and I want to say, just relax!
You are awesome at doing this!

Thanks a lot for the feedback! :blowkiss:

I did struggle when doing this picture; I had a vision about the colors in my head when I had done the lineart but then I forgot the combo and after that nothing felt right. Should always start to color right away or atleast do a map what colors I was planned on using. Lesson learned!

Must remember your tip about not letting the background swallow the main subject next time. Also to relax is great advice - trying to do that too! B-)

Same problem here - I am sometimes too ambitious which does not lead to awesomesauce drawings but unfinished works and art blocks.
So let the theme for 2013 be: relax. :meditation:

This is lovely. :) I don't know if you've ever heard of the site PonyIsland (if you haven't, check it out! I know it sounds girly but it really is wonderful), but they would love this colour combination. Pastel blues and yellows are very popular ATM.
Also, I've missed your art!

I haven't heard about PonyIsland but checked quickly the site and it looked really cute.
Have to take a closer look on it later. ^^
