I'm off work tomorrow so hopefully I can get a little art done.  I'm so slow with art these days lol
Foal Design - The Winter Soldier by amour-interdit
Foal Design - The Winter Soldier
His adult reference is good, but I had to fix the foal design so the lavender on the legs was gone.  Now he should be good for group submission.

Adult Ref:…
Breeding Pic (with original foal design) :…

Both of these links have all of the required lineage and whatnot listed.  I'll fix this one up to look pretty on Thursday.

- If you have any questions, feel free to ask.  I'm usually pretty quick at replying
- Submit your entries via comment to the entry journal. (Link provided above)
- You can enter as many horses as you wish.
- Entries need this information in the artist comments - Doesn't have to be in that order
Stable Name
Horse's Name
Link to Horse's Reference
Name of this Show
Class Entered

- Harlequines only (BLs should be registered with O-H-S or at least working on it.)
- Reference required to enter show.
- Horses may be of any age unless ridden or driven (at least 4 years)...please be somewhat realistic there.  A 4 year old might do a very beginner move but is highly unlikely to be able to complete more complicated moves/jumps, etc.  Foals may compete in halter/liberty type classes and may be shown with the dam.  Horses under 4 may not be ridden or driven.
- Horses must have clean lines and be colored.
- Shading is optional.
- Handlers (for halter type classes) are not required.
- Riders and Drivers must be at least partially visible.
- One horse per entry, please except for foals being shown with dam.
- Backgrounds are required, and here are examples of what we would allow.  Just do whatever you want :)  Full backgrounds and edited photo backgrounds are allowed as well.  Edited photos won't get as many points, and straight photos/no background will lose you points.  Our outdoor arena is a simple three board wooden fence.  There will be a dressage railing up for the halter, color, and dressage classes with red and white tulips in small flower pots.

The last three are only +1 and +2 because I will allow them to be used on a maximum of 5 entries.
Sorry, I've still not been on in a while.  I ended up getting the stomach flu just hours after my "moving" update.  Fun, right?  I'm still recovering because I moved, unpacked, and didn't allow my body to rest.  I've been on meds for symptoms, but the flu just needed/needs to ride itself out.  I'm mostly better so I'll try to do some art, but I'm also job searching so I have no idea what my schedule will be like.  It all depends on what kind of job I find.  There are a lot of stables around here so if I'm lucky I can find something at those.  If I'm not quite as lucky....I'll get another office job xD

Wish me luck.  If anyone lives in Chicago/Napervill, IL and knows of possible work feel free to let me know. Seriously :stare:

I love you guys!!!

I'm moving tomorrow so I likely won't be on at all tomorrow and maybe a limited time Tuesday.  Hopefully, I'll get things set up quickly and have space to stretch out and do more art :D

Love you all!!!

Dang it woman, why are all your favourite horses double dilutes??
amour-interdit Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Not all of them are lol.  I do have lots and lots that are "normal"  colors.  You're just looking at the doubles.  Feel free to roam over the others that need some love.  Seriously, there are loads I want to draw all of the time.
AthenaMyth Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2015
Haha I know. ^^ There are a few you do like to come back to though. Just me being foolish.

 I've got a special someone picked out though that I think you'll be happy with. And they'll show up on white paper. :P

I should try painting or drawing one of my ponies...the lack of ctrl+z makes it difficult for the perfectionist in me xD

amour-interdit Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Hey :)  Mapal is doing well.  We're both just super busy with work and hardly have art time these days, unfortunately.  I'll show her that link when I can and we'll see what we can do :)
ANIMALGIRL1869 Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2015

You have sent in the new references for the peafries, right? Once they are accepted into the group I can get a roll :)
amour-interdit Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2015  Student Digital Artist
*facepalm*  Yep.  That's the one step I obviously didn't get done. 
Haha I'll get on that right now.
