Vaal by Aomori Vaal by Aomori
Commission for :iconkotorigaro:
Type: detailed character with textured bg


Another extraordinary equine I have an occasion to paint :aww: Meet Vaal, Kotorigaro's original character :heart:



It started as a traditional sketch which I painted in Photoshop. Vaal's coat maybe does not have any extravagant markings, but it was a bit tricky to paint. But I have to say that I really enjoyed drawing his beautiful mane

Stunning, simply stunning. The hide looks so velvety and soft, every hair is in place. The 3D effect is magnificent!

Are these done in paint?! It's so smooth, I would never guess because you can't see any strokes!

Well, i play this game called Howrse, and maybe i was wondering if i could maybe use one for a picture of a character in a RP. I would give you complete credit to for the picture.

And lol, i am so stupid, what is commission?

I am afraid you need to ask commissioner for permission (person mentioned in the description under the image)

and this commission is when someone orders some certain artwork and pays for it.

Right, the pose and feeling of these two artworks are similar ^^ (it feels bad to name my drawing an art when compared to Stubbs painting :lmao:)

Oh no!! I've felt that way about a lot of my stuff (I don't have half of what I've done on my DevArt) and I see art here on DA that just pales what I've done. However, the saying does go "In the eye of the beholder." I feel yours is included, because while it's not Stubbs, it's an Aomori, your own work.

(BTW, it's been my wallpaper on my desktop since I had commented last; I like it so much ^_^)

I really love the colours of this piece and Vaal looks amazing in your painting style! I also adore the other artwork you've uploaded recently, but unfortunately I'm that kind of a person who just tends to fave and run way too often, so I'm sorry for the lack of comments! :D

I've always loved how you colour, how you make your horses glow and look so soft and it's just amazing to see Vaal in your style, he looks so gorgeous! :tighthug: Well done on his colouring too, I know he's a bit tricky but you've done so well with him! I'm glad you enjoyed doing his mane, it's one of my favourite bits to paint too. :D
Thank you for accepting my commission, you talented person! :love:

Your pictures are always really good, but this is crazy amazing. I love the way the colors on the coat blend and contrast. And the head is soooo realistic. I really like this one. How long did it take you to color?
