Frank by Twilight-Veil Frank by Twilight-Veil
Commission for :iconquietowl:
Portrait of Frank, who passed away and so his owner never got a picture of him with this bridle on. I'm honored to have painted Frank with it on, and I'm glad you liked it. :heart:
And a huge shoutout to =zingarazingara for helping me with the placement and details of bridles. I texted to her one night bawling that I've never drawn a bridle before and she politely schooled me on how they work. So thanks to my bestie, Kels...who saved my ass.

This picture is gorgeous, the horse looks magnificent and your drawing style is one of a kind ♥
If you're okay with that I'd like to feature this picture in FeatureHorseArtists

You do indeed. Look after it and feed it a fish every now and again. And don't worry about the noises it makes, that's normal. Also, consider having a pool built, or at least have a large bathtub handy.

On first glance I thought this was a photo. Goodness, Twi! :faint: Great job on the bridle. It looks amazing. and I love his coat. And his ears are so cute and fluffy looking. I wanna pet them. I do think that his eye is sorely lacking a highlight, though! It looks very flat compared to all the other awesome textures and highlights you've got going here.

All the pretties! :heart:

Thank you so much! :heart: Ahh, yes the eye! Someone else said that too. Though in the images she gave me he always had such soft looking eyes. I didn't want to add too much "fire" in it, if that makes any sense! I just wanted it to be calm, sort of. But I definitely understand what you mean.
