Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

So firstly another promotion (seems to almost be the only time I do a journal these days) this one is for oxpecker's Equine Secret Santa this year linked here  HARPG Secret Santa 2017:santa: :holly: :santa: :holly: :santa: :holly: :santa: :holly: :santa: :holly: [Santa Clause] [Holidays] [Santa Clause] [Holidays] [Santa Clause] [Holidays] [Santa Clause] [Holidays] [Santa Clause] [Holidays] [Santa Clause]
Welcome to the seventh annual HARPG Secret Santa!
This art exchange is for HorseArt-RPG and any other horse art games on DA (e.g. Drakehest, Starborn-Alignment, etc, etc!) in which you draw your own horse characters (check with me if unsure). UPDATE: This event is now open to all equine OCs AND real life horses. All you need are horse character reference sheets and the ability to draw without using free line-arts.
A few words from the group Admin
Season's greetings from oxpecker!
Based on your feedback I've decided to open the group to all horse OCs this year. I know not everyone will be happy with this change, but most people have been enthusiastic about the idea and it will help to keep the group lively.
The other change is that I'm running a gift raffle for everyone who spreads

It's pretty much the only guaranteed thing I do art-wise each year. I just think it's fun drawing other people's characters. I'd like to do it more but that cursed spare time thing.

Speaking of spare time I have even less than normal since there is a new family member in our household!  Meet Forest the Borzoi! He's 7 months old now so the picture is a little out of date but copy-pasting from my infrequently updated blog was the easiest way to get the picture over. He is silly and goofy, hates the rain - especially puddles, he'll jump over them instead - loves food, all sorts. His manners are a bit lacking but we're working on it. He's my first ever dog (unless you count a couple of weeks trial when I was like 10 that was potentially going to lead to us re-homing my friend's Jack Russell, Lucy. It didn't work out, our neighbours complained about her barking and her house-breaking was... lacking) so it's been a massive learning curve but as annoying as he can be some days I can't imagine life without him.
I can't get over the change in him from that photo... He is sooo fluffy now but only around his neck and down his spine and his tail. About halfway down his sides it suddenly stops, weird fur.

In other life stuff work is kind of rubbish, management issues, customers are assholes, the usual retail crap.

HARPG Secret Santa 2017
So this year I decided to join the HARPG Secret Santa as it is my one arty tradition to join a Secret Santa of some kind. It's fun drawing other people's characters and it forces me to produce something art-wise, a new puppy has meant 2017 has been even slower creativity-wise than normal.

I was assigned 8Siren and I chose to draw the lovely draft mare Ariel. I was originally going to draw all three and managed to do the linearts for two when I double-checked and it said to draw one character so I'll use the other sketches for my own characters sometime... I just realised I forgot to colour the lineart but I'll leave it as it is because I like how bold it looks, especially against the pastel mane and tail. I experimented with gradients for that and it looks better than I could have ever done by hand.
