A Gift for my Heros by patchesofheaven74 A Gift for my Heros by patchesofheaven74

Ok guys. so this image has been in the works since a while before Christmas (and i intended to upload on that morning...but it wasn't done..)

Needless to say you'll probably recognize some horses in this pic ;)


This image is a tribute to all my artistic heros here on DA.
I'm just sorry I couldn't do your horses more justice :blush:

Pictured from Left to right are the following foals....

Cit, your simple lines and adorable horses are simply the Bee's Knees. :D You always seem to give your character's a special light of their own all without following the crowd on styling and design. Thank you for being such an inspiration to try not stressing over all the little things in my art, all the time.

Jull, You have to be one of the sweetest artists I've encountered on this site and it even shows through your characters and art. You are the mast at merging reality and fictional images , while making them fit together as one. I'll always admire your photo bgs with drawn horses and riders who look like they belong! Thank you for inspire me to try and be sweeter and remember through the mad rush and shoving to have to draw everything in pictures, that sometimes a good photo could work just as well.

:iconwoozlet:'s beautiful, Clandestine Affairs [link]
Wooz, oh my goodness.. where to start?! You're so patient with me and my oh so many mind farts...I don't remember how i first found you on here but I'm glad I did :heart: You're horses always have an elegant look. You inspire me to try new things with lighting and tonot always judge a book by it's cover.

Yami!!! You are ALWAYS so down to Earth yet semi wild (in a good way) I don't think I've ever met another male harp-er so Kudos to you Dude! :D unless i made a boo boo and there are more guys here then i thought....You're style is so refreshing and your horses' attitudes always make me smile. You inspire me to pay more attention to colors and add different hues to my peices

DG I first met you as a mod on Howrse...and might i say you're the nicest of all the mods I've encountered! You're my inspiration for trying digital art to begin with and I love reading stories about your silly Pug. Thank you for being such a kind person and inspiring me to start drawing horses like I haven't in a long time. Your art has helped rekindle the little artist fire in me and i can't ever imagine stopping.

BGB You my friend have an awesome style and truely show traditional art power! in this online world were digital art gets the spotlight, YOU are still bringing the hurt with your crisp traditional pictures using such a messy thing as watercolors! You inspire me to go back to the 'roots' and try traditional art from time to time.

:iconfuangel29:'s legendary Agent Seely Booth [link]
Fug, your racehorses have always made me drool with their flashy colors and one of a kind personalities. Your stories are a joy to read and full of feeling! Thank you for inspiring me to add more depth to my stories and content.

THANK YOU ALL soo very much for being an inspiration to me and others! Thank you for being some of the kindest members of the community and very helpful. You touch our hearts with your art and light a little twinkle in our eyes.

Thank you for being my da Heros.

Look at little Almas being completely cheeky!! This is so incredibly kind of you, and your words are what makes me want to continue my art. It's true digital is one of the most popular medias, but I intent to give them all a run for my money!
:tighthug: Thank you so much! This makes me want to revisit Almas' foalhood. :love: This is just pure perfection! <3
