Masquerader by TheCallyBear Masquerader by TheCallyBear

Masquerader..

when will you learn to drop your disguise

:bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletpurple: ;; Very personal piece, I will say no more. This is a very...mysterious piece,
I'd like you to interpret it in your own way. That way you'll be able to feel the piece more.
I sincerely hope you enjoy.

However, I will say this. The title is Masquerader and I am using this definition of the word;
"A disguise or false outward show; a pretense."

I'm super surprised that out of all my work, this would be the one you haven't seen!
It tends to be the one, along with Anhedonia, that most people pick out when asked.

You are so kind though! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it :iconlovehug:

well considering I joined dA a year after this was submitted I can understand. :aww:
I've started digging through galleries, because it's very lovely finding old works that you've never seen before!

you're very welcome! :heart:

Oh wow! I didn't realize you were so "young" in terms of how long you'd been here!
Oh I agree! I love doing that. I also love seeing stock in a manip and thinking "oh wow I could use that for x and y" 
there's something so exhilarating about that burst of muse as you scurry off so scramble things together!!

How do you texture you're horse? It's so painting like and textured. </sub

TheCallyBear Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't add any form of texture. c: 
I do repaint a lot of the horse, and I also have a tutorial on
basic horse prep. Here; Horse Prep Tutorial.

Thank-you!

However, absolutely not.
This is my piece, my work. It is not for public use.
The only way you may use a piece of mine is if you order a commission.
That is not the site you'll be using it on, as you won't be using it at all I'm afraid.
Sorry!
