This took forever and ever
and I swear that I love it.
Even tho I had to finish it with an insuportable tummyache, I managed to survive doing the bg and that pigeon. I think, at least, it looks nice
. I am very interesting in hearing your opinion about this, so please comment, dont be shy. If you want to critique, I have the requested option open.
My work on the bg later on when I feel better, but I love how it makes the horse look even shiner.
Got so inspired by ll the Wild West thing happening aroud HARPG...
Story - WIP
Ashley was sitting in her office along with the stable managers. The usual meeting of the month was taking place earier, as summer started to bring many new things at RFS. From new horses, to new staff and a bigger stable. Everything needed to be planned in the smallest detail possible, since the mess could have started in any second. Ash was very stressed recently, but nothing too serious except some insomnia that might have also been caused by her sleeping in the same room with her boyfriend XD
Anyway, Nick started a subject that was about to take a lot of time to be solved: the summer events. RFS noted the most important ones they were going o enter most probably, but new events were started almost every week.
''Nick, Nick, slow down, please. What was the last one?''
''Hum...The Giant Nordanner Birthday Event.''
''Alright. What are your plans for our Nordies then?Who are you going to enter?''
''Well, I leased HA Fjyera 1363 to show her off along with our Shields. I trully belive these 2 peafowls will look beautiful together'' said Nick, noding.
''Agreed, what else?''
''Well, this may be more complicated because ..you are riding Fire.''
''I want to enter her in every class.''
''Please say something.''
''I should have thought at this earlier. Do you really need an answer?''
Ashley went to visit Fire as soon as she finished with the meeting. The little nordanner mare was a really special girl to her, from some unknown reason. The Nordanner stable was small. There, you could find the two appaloosa marked Nordies, Shields, the little filly, who started to look like a real horse, not like a pony and of course, Fire, the golden mare. Ashley looked at them and she was proud. She wished she had more time so she could ride every horse she has non stop. Every single breed was special to her and every single horse in general.
Few weeks later, Ash arived with the Nordanners at Skagenrak for thebig event. She never saw such a colorful competition before. Or the mutations, all the coat colors, all the potions, all the Nordanner-ess. She installed the horses and in the next 2 days, she got used to the surroundings.
And the day was there. The first day of competitions: The Potion Parade class. Probably the biggest one. There were many, many horses going to enter the arena in that day and Ashley wasnt sure if they will all be done in the same day.
Everytime a new horse was entering the ring, Ashley was turning back to check Fire, Fjy and Shields. She was now sure that the 3 mares were going to enter when the day would have started to end, and she chose to show them off as being the last competitors. The night would have shown their potions even better and Ash was sure of her decision. But who knows what the judges will think...
