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.

CLOSED - Angelus Estate Summer Show

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

:new: Welp that's it! The first annual AESS is officially closed. Thank you to everyone who got their entries in! I will start judging over the next few days but please remember I'm at work all day every day and never seem to get 5 minutes to myself x.x

Classes where only a few entries were submitted may have all their divisions merged. :new:


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

DEADLINE: 15th October 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
  • Advanced
  • Elite

Show Jumping:

Spurs are not permitted at Intermediate level. Correct attire should be worn for all classes. Double bits are NOT required, please use whatever tack your horse is most comfortable with. Bitless is permitted. Horses must wear both a saddle and a bridle.

See the show jumping and cross country obstacles here. Where a jump isn't provided for the cross country, you may create one. Feel free to take creative license on the show jumping courses!


Held on Angelus Estate's 212 acre land, with two Olympic sized show jumping rings and two dressage rings. Training rings are also available as well as a vet center with aqua-therapy and a treadmill. Stabling is available for all show horses.

The show is held at the beginning of August and the weather will be a warm 21-26 Celsius, so please ensure that all horses are kept cool and hydrated.

We do not allow the charging of points for loans, the reward for offering your horse up for loan is art and the chance of gaining some win statistics. The reward for loaning a horse? Well you get the prizes and you might get the chance to work with some of your favourite horses.

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.
  • Please include class info and your horse number in the comments on your entry images, as well as a link back to this show.

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
  • Rider Effort based on your gallery - up to 10 points
  • Horse Effort based on your gallery - up to 10 points

  • Entry number included in image - 5 points
  • General effort and appeal score at judge's discretion - 15 points

Sorry about my absence, guys. I just couldn't get the motivation up to actually do something other than work, sleep, eat, and scroll on tumblr

Fatigue absolutely sucks
