Edit: 11.28.10 Working little by little on more characters, and had to add her mate Hettar. What a lovely pair they are :heart:



Like the band of friends animation, this mare was created from my main horse base, though I had more time today to tweak her movements to make it look smoother and do some experimenting :D

This is the Gold Mare. She has no name (no one save Hettar knows it) and like her mate, Hettar she’s considered the highest/most sacred among their kind. She’s well respected, mysterious and mystical. Her color is special too, she isn’t a palomino color it’s more of a golden sheen. Something I hope is portrayed well here.

My intention is to make a bigger piece out of this such as having other mares belonging to me and my friends running along with her. This also had a song with it but I took it out to spare any ears XD But the song for her was “Mother Earth” by Within Temptation

Enjoy :heart:

Gold Mare and art are mine

Very beautiful! I love everything about it! I WISH I COULD ANIMATE!!!! But it looks to me that the leads in the front and the leads in the back (on each horse) are opposite? o_O cross leading??

Sorry for the late reply. the SWF file is what I use to export my animations, but you could also try gif (animated gif?) format

Are you using Flash as well? If that is the case, instead of clicking on "save as" you need to "Export movie" to get the SWF option :hug: hope this helps

I like how you just don't have her moving in the same place, that she speeds a little or slows a little, its very realistic. :D

Have I mentioned that you are amazing at this? Its a plus that I *love* horses, have since I was a little girl, I've ridden saddleseat( english)... enough about that though.
"Mother Earth"....isn't that a song by the band Nightwish, if my memory is working right...
