This is a Mongolian horse. They have short legs and are kind
of stocky. They sometimes have fancy embroidered saddles.

Love the pony and the page! There is another challenge on the list that asks you to illustrate a line from a song, so this would be a double hit on EDM challenges!

Oh wow! I've seen so much since I joined EDM but your work is definitely unique with its dark backgrounds. Wonderful way of weaving songs with your artwork too.

I am so glad you are back and continuing with your art! No. 2! This one is as if I hitched my pony and am stepping back to admire my special companion. Love the intricacy of the blanket.
