When I was in high school, especially the first two years, I was really into horses. Like really into them.
I discovered a now-defunct website called MyAdopts, where you can make a little website similar to Neopets and the like. I decided to unload my love of horses on my little website, which was called “Mystery Stables.”
Because plagiarism is naughty, I went ahead and made all the animal art myself. The result is these:
And that’s just scratching the surface.
These are in a certain digital art style called “sprites.” They are usually centered around the use of a limited color pallette, small size, and a painstaking dot-by-dot drawing process.
They took many hours altogether to draw. And when the whole time commitment of running the website, dealing with sometimes demanding users, and trying to release a new horse breed every few weeks was thrown in, I had to stop after less than one year.
I look back fondly on those horses. A neat little corner of my late childhood to reminisce upon.
