Mac by AmandaDrage Mac by AmandaDrage
7x10" oil speedpaint commission of a Shire x cob-type horse called Mac.
This one was commissioned as a gift for the commissioner's fiancee, to be presented as a surprise - unfortunately she accidentally saw the photo I emailed him when I was done! But she liked it very much and knew it was Mac straight away. It was collected today - I hope she likes it in person just as much. As it is, the photo isn't quite clear and Mac's face details are not as sharp as in the actual painting.

I had one reference for Mac, but the pose and angle was not ideal so I chose this stock [link] by *ElaineSeleneStock as reference for the pose (not body type) and lighting. Trying to merge the lighting from one ref and the markings from another fried my brain a little at times ;) I'm easily confused.

I unchecked Downloads once the image had uploaded, wrote my description and then noticed the Downloads tickbox had rechecked itself. Note to dA... Stop insisting all content uploaded here be downloadable, it's a matter of principle and it should be the artist's choice NOT yours...

What a lovely skewbald guy! The background plays very well with his coat and this fetlocks...
Great horse and beautifull painting.

I love the style of this one. The colour scheme works beautifully, and well done on the combination of photos! That's something I really really struggle with ~ I can copy a photo easily enough, but find it really difficult combining references like that. It's worked really well, and it must look fantastic on the wall :)

Thank you :) Yes, I struggle with it quite a bit sometimes. I think this one turned out okay in the end even though at one point I was on the verge of hair-tearing!!

Haha yes, bad dA! Not as bad as Facebook though, refusing to let you tag people or post and share certain photos. That's just stubborn!!
Thank you :hug:! Lol that rolling-head smiley :XD:
