In memory of Pentagoon by Noukah In memory of Pentagoon by Noukah
Wanted to devote this one to my favourite horse in all time,
a welshpony called Pentagoon.

I heard that he passed away a while ago, 31 years old.

I could go on and on with talking about him, I've never met such a horse before, and there was a time when I was nearly obsessed by him.
I have quite of a story about him :)
I still feel the same joy as I felt back then.
Can't say I feel too sad, since I know that he lived an incredibly happy life until his death.

Of course, none of my artwork will ever make him justice, but I still wanted to devote something, and at least give a small glimpse of the heaven I hope that he went to.

Enjoy people.

This really is stunning...the image is so peaceful and beautiful, I can truly see all the emotions you attempted to portray in this. Fantastic, and a wonderful memorial. :heart:

This is almost dreamlike in a way! I think the composition is lovely, and really I just like everything about it. :) It strikes a particular chord with me because I lost the first horse I knew this past summer-- a grey gelding aged 30, so I see lots of similarities between the two of them. Perhaps I should paint a tribute to him...

Thank you!
Awwe, I'm very sorry about your loss :( Hopefully, he lived a long and happy life. That's always a comfort :hug:

Yes, you should definitely do that! It feels good afterwards and you'll do your best to create something nice for someone very special :)

You're quite welcome! And yes, he lived a very full life. Towards the end he started going downhill pretty quickly, and we knew it was time.. I got to say goodbye, which was incredibly hard, but I'm so glad I was able to. :hug:

Whenever I get a spare moment I certainly will! You have inspired me. :D

Simply beautiful. Very well done.

I must say though that that pony's right front foot looks a little deformed somehow, but hey, who cares. It's a wonderful manip.

Thanks for the comment! I'll take a look and have that in mind in the future.
It's not a manip though, it's entirely painted :)
