A full body, full shaded image of your horse with a simple natural background. Rider and tack not included. If you'd like a horse and rider please get in touch and I'll arrange something. Please message me beforehand if you have a horse that's highly unusual in its build, such as more than 4 legs, lots of spikes, etc. in case I feel I won't be able to get it done.

Rojuk by mapal
A full body image of your horse with cell shading. I can do most horses for this but please ask if your horse is highly unusual as I may not be able to do it. I put this limitation on because I don't want you sat waiting for a picture when I've lost motivation for it!

Limited number of training commissions available, ideal for kaaring or show training. You will receive an image like the one above with your specified rider and tack. Please be ready to provide as many references as possible. Please do not send really wacky designs in that will take me forever to do. Odd markings, horns, antlers and wings are fine but things with six legs or skeleton faces will take me forever to do and I'd rather not do them, sorry.

So a little update on me because I know I've been inactive and getting behind and so on.

I started a new job a few weeks ago. It's shit and I hate it but I needed to earn money. It stresses me out a lot. So much that it's made an existing condition worse.

I used to have an inflamed stomach lining and it went away for quite some time, but now it's back and I feel so unbelievably sick most of the time. Added to the pain and the exhaustion from getting up before 5am every morning, that leaves me feeling less than amazing.

But I'm moving house this weekend after my dad's latest venture with a mail order bride seems to have failed, after he invited this fictional person to my house without asking me, kept it a secret from me, and asked my boyfriend to keep it from me too. That and this morning, after I went to work, he told Stephen that this woman would be here at 10 today. So far she hasn't turned up, but he didn't bother informing me at all and it was Stephen who told me.

I'm fed up and tired and pissed off and sick and in pain. This is never ending and all I want to do is draw in the comfort of my own home.

So that's what I'm doing lately.

HIEF - Angelus Estate Summer Show

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 4, 2015, 2:15 PM


Starts: 15th May 2015
Pre-Registration Begins: 10th May 2015

DEADLINE: 1st September 2015

Sanctioned by The-Eventing-Society and H-I-E-F 

Location: Mavis Enderby, Lincolnshire, UK
Angelus Estate - Map by mapal

Welcome to the first annual Angelus Estate Summer Show, hosted by mapal's Firelight Stables and amour-interdit's Somesmera Stables. AESS is a huge show designed to provide a wide variety of opportunities for horses of all levels. Please read the rules carefully before entering and have a great time :heart:

If you would like to donate any prizes please let us know. It might look sparse at the minute but trust me we will make it worthwhile placing in this show :)


  • Registration is required.
  • Fantasy breeds are allowed but flying horses or horses with flying abilities are not permitted in Show Jumping and Cross Country
  • Horses should be over 5 years old
  • Stables may enter a maximum of two horses per class. That does not mean divisions, but classes. So for example you may enter a horse in dressage intermediate and advanced, and show jumping elite and intermediate, but you cannot enter horses in more than two divisions per class.
  • A horse may only enter one division in a class. So horse A cannot enter dressage intermediate and advanced.
  • Horses may only enter in one discipline. If you think your horse is an all-rounder, then consider the Three Day Event.
  • There is a cap on extra images. Please read the judging section for more information.
  • The cap on how many horses can enter each class and how many classes a horse can enter is to prevent people from bombarding the event with entries to increase their chance of winning. You have two shots per class to win, so you need to put in the effort to make it good. We want quality, not quantity.
  • Divisions: You will notice three divisions in the Dressage, SJ, and XC classes. This is to give a chance for more inexperienced horses to do well and for experienced horses to go up against others of their own skill level. To enter Intermediate, your horse needs no prior show entries but some training is recommended. To enter Advanced, your horse must have entered two shows in that discipline before, placing doesn't matter. To enter Elite, your horse must have entered three shows in that discipline and have placed 3rd or higher in at least one. To enter the Three Day Event, your horse should have competed in one of the included disciplines or at least have a training image available.
  • Required Images:You must draw one image per horse per division entered, except for TDE where you must draw your horse three times, once for each discipline. You may create a collage of images for your TDE entry as long as the full body of the horse is included three times.


  • Intermediate

Want to be a judge? Drop us a message letting us know why, and what experience you've had before.

There is a cap on extra images. This is to prevent sketchy images from boosting points beyond competition. Please read the following carefully:
  • You may produce three extra images from around the grounds which are worth 2 score points each. These images must be fully shaded and with a hand drawn background to count.
  • You may produce three training images for your horse's discipline that are worth 4 score points each. These images, again, must be fully shaded and with a hand drawn background to count. The rider should also be in view somewhere.
  • Extra images of your staff at the opening dinner party or the award's ceremony will earn all your entered horses points. You may produce three images that are worth 3 score points each. The images should be fully shaded with a hand drawn background.
  • You may produce three extra and three training images per horse. Drawing more than one horse in one picture will give points to all horses in the picture. Including horses belonging to other owners will give all your horses up to three 2 point boosts and will give the other horses from other owners that are included a 2 point boost also. You may only receive up to five point boosts in total from other people drawing your horses.
  • :new: Please include class info and your horse number in the comments on your entry images, as well as a link back to this show. :new:
  • </b>

This is an effort based show with a small random element. Please read the below carefully to understand how to maximise your points.
  • Background Accuracy - up to 10 points
  • Photo background - 0 points
  • Clothing and Tack Accuracy - up to 10 points
