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.

I've downloaded it onto Gimp 2.8, and it won't work. It just shows the image.

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.

Is there anyway to get this as a PNG, JPEG, or JIF? I can't upload any of my creations.

There's so much stuff on this it slows down my computer a lot and doesn't respond sometimes, and the zebra print looks a little... unshaded? But in the long run it's worth it because this is the best. Horse. Creator. Ever!

Do you have PNG files for the layers? I don't have Photoshop and only a few of the layers are showing up in GIMP for some reason
