Dark's Horse by WhiteFoxCub Dark's Horse by WhiteFoxCub
Hey guys ^^

This is Dark's one and only horse whom he's known since he was a child (purposely similar to Link and Epona).

Right now I'm just trying to figure out what sort of markings this horse should have, I'm also contemplating his name. I'm pleased with the design of the saddle though, that's definitely a keeper.

Dark's type of horse is a Shire Horse, I researched about them and found they used to be used as war horses in some era, because of their strong build. Now-a-days they're used only for heaving stuff.

Yes. I really like the stirrup - a lower chance of being dragged along the ground if you fall out, you know? only wouldn't it be susceptible it ripping and tearing? And it wouldn't be that stable; hard to rise for jumping and stuff like that.
It's really cool about shire horses, eh? They were so strong they could carry all the heavy knights in heavy armor, sometimes wearing heavy armor themselves, and stay balanced while the knight used his lance/sword/ whatever from the saddle. And you've got the shire horse perfectly. Especially his strong neck and bunched/ cut tail. He looks very intelligent and has a really cute pink nose. And I really like the outfit of the guy in the saddle as well. And you are very good at shading metal! (as well as cloth!)

This horse is still easily one of my favorite designs. It makes me sad that it's in the outdated folder! D:

Daw thanks xD It pleases me that you feel that way about this horse :-P I decided that Dark Link would be more suited for a slim, agile sort of horse. For the speed you know? Stealth is more important then strength, that's my opinion anyway :-P

Just think of it as the same horse but with a different appearance! Like it got plastic surgery.... all over it's body lol
