Hey guys

I can show you a commission that I am absolutely proud of for a lovely Patron of mine called Balint Kollar He asked me to do a scene re-interpretation of an old children's animation movie about Ico, the little stallion.

I wasn't able to watch the full video (and it's with english subs only) but I got linked to the scene in which Ico, the small brown horse on the right is gifting the beautiful princess called "Preciosa" (= Precious) some flowers from the castle's garden, which is strictly forbidden. This is why the mare is a little shocked at that sight and refuses to take them immediately.
A screencap of the scene:


Balint asked me to draw this scene in my style, like "Lupifying" it hehe and there we go! I had lots of fun with this, thinking about how I could draw their manes and tales, how I could make their snouts look a little different from the usual pony snouts I draw and re-create the background. I just ahd so much fun with this and am pleased with the result I kept the shading in green-ish colours to bring out the natural look from the garden a little more, which I think fits perfectly here. Also: look at Ico's cute expression, definitely showing his crush on the young mare Nawww, so cute!

I want to thank the commissioner for commissioning me such a cute idea and for supporting me in any way possible, it absolutely means a lot to me and is highly appreciated! Thank you!

I really hope you like this piece as much as I do

Bartomeu dimissió!
While I'm pretty sure that Osamu Tezuka's (and Sanrio's) Unico was an inspiration for MLP — Toei did the outsourced animation work after all -, I wonder if Ico was, too. AFAIK, the movie wasn't a hit in Latin America only, but also in Eastern Europan countries, so animation professionals should have known about it… Anyone has more info about this?
