Third And Last Dressage Set - 1 by NyxVivendi
Third And Last Dressage Set - 1
Second shot: nyxvivendi.deviantart.com/art/…

I swear this is my last set.
There was my first: nyxvivendi.deviantart.com/art/…
Then my second: nyxvivendi.deviantart.com/art/…

The first had many flaws, and after a while I wanted to "upgrade" to another custom. My Bleecker was indeed gorgeous but I wasn't 100% satisfied with its finish, which didn't fit well to close-up photos. I ultimately commissioned this one from Deb Brown, as I first wanted to, as my Palouse painted by her was as flawless as I wanted my Totilas to be. 
This photo was tricky as wind sometimes knocked the horse off the edge he was on, and I had to grab him before he'd reach the floor. (I wouldn't have tried this if the wind was blowing the opposite direction, as my model would have fallen down a 2.5 meters drop. Not a good idea.)

I ended up laying a penguin plush where he would fall, for satefy purposes. :D

So this is my very final dressage set. I assure you that my photos aren't doing it justice. I'm very very happy about my new saddle!

At Least I Improved by NyxVivendi
At Least I Improved
The horse fanatic I am had to do this someday.
I stumbled upon this old drawing today, dated October 2005. I was ten years old. The bottom drawing was made in February 2015.
I look at this and even if I'm tempted to say "... mane got shorter and shorter with time" I'm happy to see I improved, (I sure had to!) not as much as I wished, though.

Can't wait for the 2025 version, haha.

Disclaimer: I don't draw too often. I used to draw daily at school (in math class, for instance: which I used to fail because ponies were much more worth my attention than the teacher) but now I'm at work, it doesn't happen very regularly... Well, I usually sketch down a horse on the rinse cup of the espresso machine but, basically, I don't draw anymore. Sometimes, I grab post-its and try to achieve something (like the one on the picture) but I lack exercise.

Mynheer's Classy Little Halter by NyxVivendi
Mynheer's Classy Little Halter
It was love at first sight with this horse. I met it on eBay... And went crazy once more. I always loved wide markings on horses... Montecello Studio strenghts aren't markings, but these DAPPLES... Too bad they can't be seen on this picture: I wanted his head only. But these dapples and shading are to die for. 
I wanted his head only to show off our new halter: This is another masterpiece made by Anna, and it's simply perfect. Not only this is the coolest color combination (I mean... Black, red and gold. Couldn't wish more!) but the lead rope that came with it fits perfectly. And those stitchmarks... The red parts on both noseband and headstall, (unseen here unfortunately) so small and yet so detailled! 
Thank you SO MUCH, Anna! :) I love it to bits!

This One Isn't Playful .2 by NyxVivendi
This One Isn't Playful .2
Again Kitty Cantrell's Nitro. :)

I remember seeing this resin, customized with wings, in a buckskin color, fighting off little dragons on a muddy scene. This was way too awesome and one of my favorite horse model photos ever, but I can't find it back. Anyway, this sure was my number 1 motivation when buying this horse. :D (EDIT: There it is! friesianfury.weebly.com/chaos.… )

For anyone who might not be familiar with the model horse hobby: This one measure approximately 35cm from the tip of his front hooves to the end of his tail.

Hi! :)

Should I apologize for the lack of new deviations recently? I actually don't think so: There are plenty of gorgeous photos all over DA, so you have what you need. The only one here who needs to worry is me! I actually have a few of lovely followers, I'd be pretty sad if they just disappeared off my gallery because I'm not active enough to fill it. D:

I don't photograph much these days/months. Actually, even if I just got a new D200, I'm not really into this. I recently got a job (I let you guess eventually WHERE I now work, the "Drinking" stuff on top of this may give you a hint) and it takes lot of my time and energy, even if I have tons of fun working there. But anyway, this won't be a source of new and cool photographs on my gallery, even if I'd like to sometimes bring my camera and annoy my coworkers when they're making their drinks.

Am I the only one here who actually think that the new displaying way (... I need to practice my english more) on DA really sucks? I mean, it's just awful. We see one damn deviation at a time. Talk about a not ergonomical way to show us the recently posted stuff. Plus, at least half of them are my little pony drawings, (please don't let me go in a "antimylittlefreakingpony" speech) and the other half looks like kid drawings or weird unknown manga things. This is pretty annoying, or perhaps I'm in a bad mood.

Well... Take care of yourselves, all of you, and thanks for viewing my gallery if you're reading this. :D
