Call Me When You're High by qannekke Call Me When You're High by qannekke
Ain't it so, ain't it so perfect?
Our cynical minds will make it totally worth it,
so give it to me now;
we're lost
in a dream, now!


.

This was the first time Otachi had ever been somewhat calm at a show. They were over at HoT Stables again for another halter class, and Ben was concerned. The horse seemed to be eating fine, but either the spirited stallion had started to mellow out somewhat with his daughter hanging around, or he was getting sick.
Ben currently had a betting pool going, and if the horse was sick, he was hopefully going to win enough money to cover the vet bills.

.

 Entry for HoTS Weekly Show!

Horse: Windgate's Otachi 5463
Breed: Pure Nordanner
Age: 5 Years
Class: Halter
Handler: Benjamin Wakefield
Stable: #Windgate-Stables, Scotland

.

Er, yeah. Just an entry so I can have something fullbody of him standing to put on his stud sheet //sob
and i really wanted to do this as a show entry so that i could rack up an extra couple of kaaring points woooo

I love the texture so much! I also like the - let's say - cartoony style with these thick lines and how one can see that you have your own style! Nevertheless I think the frontlegs are a bit too skinny as they look a bit unproportional to the rest of the body.
May seem weird, but how do you do this texture? I am always trying, but somehow it doesn't work for me d:

Thank you very much! :love: I do like doing more cartoony things, I think doing realism is a bit redundant when you have a fantasy colored horse :XD: And ye, I agree, I think the front legs are a bit thin - I'm having some anatomy troubles at the moment, I'm a bit out of practice I think QUQ;;

The texture is a free stock I use, and what I do is:
1. Import it into SAI as a new layer on your image, and scale it so it covers the whole image. It has to be the top layer.
2. Remove all of the color from the texture, so go to layer > hue and saturation (or colors, something like that) > slide the saturation bar down to the minimum so it's black and white.
3. Set it on the layer setting 'Lumi and Shade', and then adjust the opacity to show how much the texture shows ^U^;;

Good ol' Otachi... or maybe not?
I'm pretty surprised he's acting so calm, but who knows, maybe (definitely) he'll take first!

You're welcome! :hug: He is quite the looker lol. I LOVE that you do quality (as opposed to quantity) work of your nords. A lot of people just use them as kaaring and breeding machines. It's always nice to find people who draw their nords nicely, and focuse on quality, but still keep them active. :love: Thank you for that! :)
