This in NOT pony related, so please move if this isn't the appropriate place to post this.

Next month is 10 years since I started dating my now-husband. I'm wanting to commission a painting/drawing to illustrate the story of how we first met. The scene I'm imagining is of two teenage girls, both riding bay horses, and a guy standing beside them.

I'm thinking the picture needs to be vague in it's details, to match the story, as the story doesn't reveal who it's about until almost at the end, you have to know the story to know what's coming. No faces clearly visible or detailed, but the colours and emotions are vibrant in the story. (at least I hope that's how it comes across!)

I'm asking here, because pony peeps for the most part know horse anatomy fairly well.

If anyone would like to have a crack at it, I'm happy to provide ref pics of elements of the story, or even just describe things if that helps it remain vague and unspecific. This is a commission, something I'm wanting to pay for, as I'd ideally like to have a digital copy that I can have printed any which way I end up deciding on, as I'm as yet unsure how I'd like to present the story and picture. I have a few ideas, but I'm still hashing it out, despite it being next month. eek!

Here's the story in case that helps anyone put their hand up:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Also story critique is completely welcome! Have at it!

Hi, I have contacted this person for you ( https://bra1neater.deviantart.com/ ). He takes commissions but he is busy right now. If you can't find anyone after one month, you might be able to consider him.
Hope that helps, have a nice day. =)

Rough at first glance, but actually kind, helpful and supportive.

I'm not the best with humans, I specialize in furries and ponies but I could send you some examples of ponies and humans I've drawn if you have an email address, Skype, telegram, discord or facebook
My icon is a bit old but that's a pony I've drawn of course real horses would have a more horse like shape especially to the face

I was going to suggest her, too! Her horses are realistic but still whimsical.


We make these! $10 each.  PM me for details!
Thanks so much to Calico_Star for her beautiful work!

That is such a cute story. If you're still looking, I'm available for commissions, but I can't do digital for the time being so it would be traditional and mailed out for you to do with the final piece what you need as far as making copies for yourself.  I also edit if that's something you need.
