    Kronborg's Jabask
    @Ronan-Dhall
    I originally had entered this in the summer grading show but after posting it I deleted it shortly after as I felt there was too much editing and painting done for it to be fair. Although bummed about deciding that, I still had a lot of fun making this picture! Personally, when I start editing I like to make my horses look as far from sim horses as humanly possible- buuuut like I just said, it seems unfair for the only part of the original horse to be showing are the hooves. Hence why, I do't edit often besides the occasional nose & eyes-- I'm too much of a perfectionist. Right, enough of me whining about own decisions, here's Jabask!

    I did have a shit ton of fun making this, not gonna lie- I think I'm going to try doing something like this with all my horses because it's just really fun to have fully-edited photos of my ponies, haha! And really cool to see how they might look in real life :thinking: A good learning experience on my behalf, cheers!



  • Holy sh-

    This is amazing Marquis! :heart_eyes:



  • How did you do ?



  • These edits are incredible! Jabask is soooo handsome, and he seems like a tough horse to ride as well, always love a challenge though! Holocene has such a nicely shaded coat, and I can't believe how big she is, with a very cute face as well :heart_eyes:



  • I just saw it on Instagram and thought wow! It looks so good, I am fascinated :heart_eyes:



  • Marquis Moulin..you are amazingly talented, so much so i cant put it in words <3



  • That's... kind of too much editing...

    Not quite sure I understand the question, but I'm not entered in the show anymore on my own behalf, or I used a reference image and used a little bit of photo manipulation for places that were too difficult for me too paint, and the rest is painted. The background is another story

    Thank you! Jabask isn't too difficult, he's a strong horse and requires a good hand, but if you work with him he's fantastic. and thank you again, I know, Baloo has the face to say she's supposed to be 15 hands and yet she could trample our 15 hand-ers haha!

    Thank you! I'm glad haha! It was really fun to do, I plan on doing more just for my own sake because it's really fun for me to envision my horses in real life

    /stranlges self/ stop it stop it stop it stop it you've done enough

    OKAY. I'm forcing myself to quit editing for this week and go back to doing actual writing posts, doing these conformation photos turned out to be really fun, and although I would like to make one of each of my registered horses-- I'll keep them to myself till I get them all done and then I'll do a master post.

    all edits to these mares are fully painted by me, it is fun to use a little photo manipulating , but I wanted to test my skills at painting with a mouse since I don't have a fancy tablet or anything.

    and that's enough of that for now! I feel really bad for getting out of character these past few posts, so I'll be right back in the swing of things whenever the next update is since stories take longer than these. Cheers!



  • If EYEC Wandering Aengus ever goes missing it totally wasn't me. What beautiful girl! :heart:



  • Stuuuuuunnnning! You are So talented!



  • Beautiful work. You are very talented. Not gonna lie though, I prefer seeing the actual sim than the real overlays. Great way to advance your skill though! Wish I had that kind of talent.

    Thank you! and that's totally understandable, it's definitely different from my usual, I don't plan on making the complete paint-over to be a common thing at all. I find it a lot more fun in the long run to do story posts where there's little editing done with multiple photos. thank you, nonetheless! Outside of the sims I actually do digital art so it's something I'm pretty comfortable with



  • really wish our games could look this real :cry: XD that b so cooool, love EYEC Holocene shes stunning <3

    That would be pretty cool in my opinion, I would love the sims to look as realistic as possible! Though I think most people do enjoy the charm of the pixel ponies, good thing we've got CC. and thank you!

    All done with a mouse! I had a tablet once but the computer I use for the sims is too old to use one on it, thank you so much!

  • OOC:
    I really do not enjoy making OOC posts, but I felt like sharing about my characters, especially since my internet has gone down hill and it'd really relieve some anxiety to clear up my character's origins before my internet kills me and I can't really get on here oops -- but since I do not want to interrupt the story, this isn't formatted very nicely and if anyone knows how to use spoilers.- I wouldn't mind some help on that

    So, outside of screwing around with the sims, I work on a passion project where my main three, Marquis, Walt, and Burt come from :ok_hand: the project is a book series called Oxford's Outlaws, and I'm not here to plug myself or self promote but I am looking for beta readers wink wink wink wink anyways- I've had these three characters for literal years, before I started the sims, I just threw them in because the dudes mean a lot to me and they make the sims a lot more fun for me lmao. I have a whole sims 4 save and that's wild. anyways: boys. here they are

    (all art is by me)

    First boy, is Marquis, the dude I have as the mc of this little blog thingy. He's not actually the main character of the series, but he means the most to me for a whole bunch of reasons.

    alt text alt text alt text

    His whole story is (predictably) a lot different then what it is on here, which is probably why I was getting weirdly anxious on here since I don't like my characters being wrongly presented (even if it's by myself apparently!) but that's him, he's a coooool dude. I don't wanna say much so this is just weird and awkward since I'm bad as talking OOC

    Next boy, is Walt- who also isn't the main character! He's a literal gremlin. I've had him about as long as I've had Marquis , and he's also a cool dude, and he's probably the most fun character to write honestly.

    alt text alt text alt text

    Last boy! Is Burton, who's actually the main character of the series- shockingly. I think he's not so focused on in the blog because it's my break from him.

    alt text alt text alt text

    There's one other lad too but, he's not included in this since I don't post him in this blog but his names Winfred, he exists too.

    I think that's it, I had a strong urge to make this sorta posts and I might change it later on so it fits the theme again, but yeah! Those are the characters as themselves I suppose. That's it! Cheers :sparkles:
