Ambush in the Snow by hyperionwitch Ambush in the Snow by hyperionwitch
Just a piece I did for fun. I don't get a lot of practice drawing animals, and I used to be a big horse fan. Plus, these two characters just happen to both have horses they use frequently. I figured I'd try my hand at drawing them, and the sketch turned out well enough that I painted it.

Mostly an exercise in atmosphere once I got past the sketch stage, since the painting itself was pretty straightforward. Cloudy weather doesn't offer much in the way of dramatic lighting. lol

I like how it turned out! Anyway, more work on the way (hopefully some more pieces for Scenes from Vvardenfell).

Setting is from Skyrim, which belongs to Bethesda
Saynar and Binds-Her-Neck belong to me

Is this Shadowmare? Without the glowing eyes it's impossible to tell :P

No no, this lady's just a mage--I think the idea of being a part of the Dark Brotherhood would horrify her. Her horse is just a standard Whiterun Stables horse. lol Plus, if it was Shadowmere, I definitely would have had it glowing. Hair wouldn't completely obscure that kind of light, I think.
