This piece was both hell and heaven to paint, but after all I think I'm happy with the outcome! I was browsing through dA looking for inspiration and found this beautiful horse I just had to paint. The colours in the reference were already very pretty, but I wanted to make the painted version even more colourful and shiny. Oh and please don't ask about those random flying petals, I had to keep them because I felt like the piece wouldn't be completed without them! :laughing:

I hope you like this one too, and thanks for taking a look!
