Al Amir - Prince of the Desert by Callypso666 Al Amir - Prince of the Desert by Callypso666
This is the portrait of an Arabian Stallion I've called "Amir", which is Arabian and means as much as "Prince", a name that suits him quite well, don't you think? ^^

I created this with my drawing tablet on my computer (programme: Corel Photo Paint 8), using a new technique as those who know my art already might recognize right away. It took me awfully lot of time (around 25 hours?), I started this about three weeks ago and now, after almost one month, I've had the oppurtunity (and motivation) to finally finish it! Yaaay!
And I like the way it turned out. :) It was so much fun to draw the facial features, especially the eyes and the veining as well as the mane... I think I have totally fallen for this gorgeous prince! ^^


... If you'd like to you can also take a look at the other pieces of my digital horse series:

And yeah, here is also the Step By Step version of this one that I have uploaded since a few people requested it ;) : [link] .

This is really lovely! I love how his skin is so smooth and yet at the same time, you included little details like the fuzz in his ears and the veins on the face ;)

Thank you.
Yeah, well I wanted to achieve a high level of smoothness without loosing the underlining of the facial features that are so typical of this amazing horse breed. But on the other hand each breed has it's own small characteristics that give the piece its final touch like the intense veining in this case or the thick fur and curled/ wavy mane of the Friesian horse. (By the way you can also check out my portrait of the Friesian Stallion if you like: [link] . And I'd be glad if you'd leave me a comment there as well and tell me what you think. ;))
However, I'm glad you like this drawing. ^^

I would be interested to see you do a piece on the late, great, DA Valentino!!!
I have been trying to think of ways to do a piece of him, but dont have the talent of drawing like you do (well i gotta practice)

Well, I might try to draw him actually... But I don't really know when I will start, for we have our school leavers' ball this weekend and afterwards I have to apply for a place at university which might take some time in fact. But I will absolutely try it as soon as I have the time and inspiration! ;)

Nice work! Am I right in thinking lots of low opacity brushes with spacing and limited smudge/blending? :)
