The Ass arrives by sealle The Ass arrives by sealle
ERMAGHERD ITS SHADING!!!!!!!!!!! what is this! well i had mainly shaded it before my art block but my little week long holiday has seemed to refresh me so i got a bit more done on him and then due to laziness decided to slap a photo on as the BG.

He also was not meant to show up in plot for another while, though the fact that i finished something really decided me so you guys get to meet him early ;) you will read about him later. and i shall update here with a story then!

BUT until then here are his stats, and just as a short reasoning for the purchase of this fellow.

ALL my Arabians are related. Cio and Ellie are siblings through their sire Kiddo, who is Lola's grandsire. So I needed some new blood to throw over my girls. Hense Assamo. He is not only half brother (through their sire) to the astounding Ibn Inshalla but he is out of a Magnum Psyche mare, so heck yes on the nommy pedigree!




Previously seen in
Assamo by zeunicorn1o and Sweat and Foam by zeunicorn1o

Registered Name: Assamo
Barn Name: Ass
Sex: Stallion
Age: depicted 7 years (See journal for current age)
Breed: Egyptian Arabian
Appearance: Bay with a stripe, two socks and a stocking.
Genetics: Ee-Aa
Height: 15.2hh
Breeder: ~zeunicorn1o
Owner/trainer: *sealle
Temperament:"Assamo's behaviour has earned him the often employed nickname of 'Ass'. He is an utter jerk - he'll knock over filled water buckets, step on his food bowls, unhook his manger, spook like a colt, bully the other horses, squeal and trumpet all day, and to top it all off, throw a violent paddy at the tiniest thing. After Assamo, those 'crazy thoroughbreds' don't look so crazy after all."
History: Purchased from Red & Sky after they decided to close down their stable, he was shipped over with two mares that had also been added to KhanCohban Farms. He was purchased to inject some fresh blood into the arabian breeding program for future crossing with the two El Rakib mares we had already. He settled well and has already made firm enemies with some of the other studs, and seems to delight in torturing the poor people sent to work with him. We have found that the only way to keep him managable with ample exercise and even then you still have to watch him.
Discipline(s): Halter, Liberty, Bull fighting, anything that tires him

May I have a breeding to him? Unless its HARPG only.
sealle Featured By Owner May 25, 2014
I dont do harpg only, but you will need to send a note with a filled in breeding form that you can find in my main stable journal!

How do you make the hair look so realistic?
sealle Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014
With lots of squiggles. Hair is one of my favourite parts to draw so i think that helps. But mainly all i can say is study how hair moves and bunches, once you can draw basic flow lines then it is just a matter of doing light and quick lines to show its shape and not get too worried about how neat it is. Hair is never really perfect so i just tend to have fun and let it go everywhere XD

It just looks like an effect that manipulators use on fur sometimes... Do you use filters??
sealle Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014
No filters, its just brush work and then shading on another layer.
