Pegasus by GoldenPhoenix100 Pegasus by GoldenPhoenix100
Just realised all my flying poses look exactly the same. Should probably look at making new ones >.>

So everyone knows and loves the mythical Pegasus, but whilst cruising DA's assortment of related pictures, I couldnt find a single one which portrayed Pegasus as a believable flying horse. All the images show him with very gothic or stylised wings, so I figured it would be fun to try to make him look believable :)

No easy feat but lots of fun! :D

Thank you! And I'm not entirely sure what you mean by use, but if you mean use the artwork, you are welcome to, so long as it is not for commercial purposes and you credit me :)

Or if you are talking about using the pegasus itself, I agree, I'd like a pegasus too! XD

Hi, sorry for the late response - I've been away. You may, although I'd like to know a little more about the book (Is it published, do you plan on selling it etc). and I also ask that you credit me for the illustration

No problem, hope you enjoyed your holiday and No it's not published, I will not be selling it you see I will be writing it on a website called wattpad that is a online community for writing and reading digital books. So it will be online for everyone to read but no one will pay for it so wattpad is kinda like deviantart just it's for books. If it becomes really really really popular then it will have a small chance of becoming a real book but given my age and knowledge of writing I don't think it will have that big of a chance but I will indeed give all credit to you in the books description.

It looks amazing! It's believable, specially in the fact that, if he was high up and you were looking to the sky, you'd think it was a bird, it looks like an eagle if you could silhouette him. Brilliantly amazing!

You have a point. This looks very detailed, like an actual Pegasus would look like. I love the lighting, and the wings are gorgeous. You are amazing.

Id like to say that I am a big fan of your work and I was hoping you could tell me how you draw your clouds? Do you use a brush or use some sort of technique. I cant seem to find any proper tutorials and I just cant seem to get it right. :| Anyway, thank you for your time.

:icongoldenphoenix100:
GoldenPhoenix100 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hehe I have always hated doing clouds - I can never get them looking how I want either. The best way I've found is to get the airbrush (its a default paintbrush type) and set the flow very low - about 20%.
Only the tops of the clouds are bright - the majority of the centre is normally quite dark if they are thick. Check out some good cloud references before you start :)
