Pontus portrait by novablue Pontus portrait by novablue
Well, I finally finished this one... I actually started working on this picture last year, spent loads of time on it then sort of kept it hidden away and didn'd find the time nor energy to finish the background (which I didn't like, either). Today I just said "meh", and made a new, simpler background and decided to call it done!

This is, if you could guess, our pony Pontus, a shetland. I know, I know, there are probably loads of things wrong with the anatomy but horses aren't my strongest point so...
I did use one reference photo, which you can see at [link]
That's from the day we got him... Lol... he looks nicer now and he doesn't always have his hair like that hehehehe. His old owner (a little girl) made that to make him look pretty when we came to get him ;)

EDIT: Gah, after many tries, upload seems to finally work now! Sorry for the wait!

Full view is MUST!

I love this, he's so realistic looking. And for all I know the anatomy isn't even remotely correct... but I wouldn't know, so I still think it's awesome! Hope you don't mind a :+fav:

I love the detail you've put into it < 3 Also, I love the photo you linked, those braids & knowing that a little girl did them so he would be pretty for your family, it's just too sweet.

Im pretty sure its awesome, but its not visible =C There seems to be a glitch that affected images uploaded earlier today, you may need to re-upload

Yah, I've tried several times to re-upload but so far, it's refused to co-operate :( I just got home after being away for a few hours, so I'm going to try again now XD
