Create Your Own Horse!

It works fine with Gimp, Paint Tool SAI and Paint Shop Pro X4.

:bulletblue: 23 coat colors :
-seal bay,
-dark bay,
-sooty bay
-faded black
-liver chestnut,
-mealy chestnut,
-light grey,
-dark grey,
-sooty buckskin,
-smoky black
-smoky cream
-red dun
-classic champagne
-chimera x2
:bulletblue: 22 white patterns :
-3x tobiano,
-2x overo,
-2x tovero,
-2x splash white,
-3x sabino,
-3x roan,
-3x appaloosa pattern,
-2x rabicano,
-birdcatcher spots
:bulletblue: 5 non-white patterns :
-reverse brindle,
-Bend-Or spots,
-zebra pattern for body+mane and tail
:bulletblue: 6 variations of leg markings (white stockings and stripes)
:bulletblue: 7 variations of face markings
:bulletblue: 2 eye colors (blue and brown)
:bulletblue: 4 hooves colors
:bulletblue: 12 mane and tail colors
:bulletblue: shading and lighting of full body and mane and tail

Try to manipulate the opacity of shadows layer and all the pattern layers. Lighter coats (albino, light grey) require lighter shades and dapples on darker coats (bay, liver chesnut) look better when the opacity level is low.

Also if You are working with any other program then Gimp 2.6 the layers modes might not work properly. The shadows layer should be set to the multiply mode and the lights layer to the overaly/soft light/something like that mode as well as the Brindle, Bend-Or Spots and Dapples layers.

You can :
:bulletgreen: edit it, that means adding new colors and markings
:bulletgreen: use it for point adoptables (I would really appreciate it if You could donate to me some of the income from adoptables made with this)
:bulletgreen: use it for Your OC reference sheet
:bulletgreen: use it in any SIM/RPG games BUT HOWRSE!
:bulletgreen: basically use it in any other way

You can't :
:bulletred: use it as a GA coat in howrse
:bulletred: use it without giving me credit
:bulletred: claim as Your own

You may :
:bulletpurple: let me know what could I improve
:bulletpurple: tell me to make more colors (or make them yourself)
:bulletpurple: show me Your work :3 (You don't have to, but plz do, I wanna see!)

Download for .psd file (can be opened with SAI, Gimp and many other programms).
Have fun!

EDIT 1 : fixed white patterns; fixed manes; 7 more coat colors; 2 more white patterns; 4 new mane and tail colors.

EDIT 2 : fixed leopard appaloosa pattern; 3 more coat colors; 4 more white patterns; 2 more non-white patterns; 2 more face markings.

EDIT 3 : fixed some color layers that were sticking out the lineart; 1 more coat color; added zebra pattern; 6 more white patterns.

Well since I really(really) want to use  this for Reference Horse avatars commissions on HEE, to make up for that I'll make adoptables here and Donate you full DA points. Just to make up for the virtual currency used over there. I'll post my work here so you can enjoy your art being used in creative ways. :D 

(I sound so professional I hate it, even though I'm somewhat young for this. Also I seriously love your art it's so Bootyful.)

Just downloaded. This looks absolutely amaze ; u ; If I can start these adoptables, most definitely sending points your way! 8D
Skypeoplephoenix732 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
this is great :) I'll probably use it to help with some colors for a Firequine custom I got :) I know the colors, but it's getting exactly the right hex that is still a bit of a struggle
Romanxheist Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really enjoyed working with this base creator! I added a layer for experimental colors ( for example blue and green mealy, lol) If you don't mind could I use as an adoptable base design on an RPG site that I play on, the currency is just for the forum itself called clovers? I had used the base for my Character Prende on there I will upload her Ref in just a few moments. The url to the site is I may even use it for adoptable's here and donate half the points per adoptable?
EmeraldWR Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome! :3 well done and thanks for sharing ♥

Also, it works just fine in FireAlpaca as well once it loads cx ;u;

Literally the ONLY critique I have for this is that the brown eye looks red on the character I made xD But it's so fixable I don't even care. >…
umlapiseumacamera Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I made the download of this and when I finish some character I'll show to you! 
WulfluvrBlackdrgn Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
you should totally make a flashgame out of this! Especilly for people who dont have any programs to use this in.
konikfryzyjski Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, if only I knew how to... :/
WulfluvrBlackdrgn Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
you could comission someone to do it, id donate points to help with that.

I wanted to inform you someone made a ref for a character for me without informing you.  I will credit you for it but I just wanted to let you know I didn't steal it.
