Watch the “Making of” video

I put together a short (under 4 minute) video showing how I prepared and painted Ceru the horse. If you’re looking for the satisfying joy of watching paint being applied in multiple colors, this is the video for you.

Commission your own horse

Looking for a horse of a different color to make your own? Or you really wish you had a blue and gold horse? I do custom commissions of all sizes.
