Snow Troubles by CSStables Snow Troubles by CSStables
Entry Task 1 - Hungary 
for :iconthe-white-december:

Let Hungary surprise you with a snow chaos this year. The weather gods found it funny to send a massive amount of snow along the flat landscape at the first part of the trail. The temperatures may only vary between -3 at day and -10 C at night but you will find yourself occasionally in front of 1,5 meter high snow walls blown up by the wind at a few roads. 

 Keep your backgrounds to the scenery described above, (no alps, mountains in hungary people xD!!!) In this stage you can draw your horse and rider fighting their way through the high snow. Entrants with shorter horses will have to face a possible nightmare. 


Of course, I cannot, I CANNOT have just one picture! It has to be a comic. And oh my lord, I've never.ever.finished a comic in one day before... From the time I woke up until night I worked on this :faint: Hope I'll be able to function tomorrow :lmao: Hmmm 

Don't think I'll be adding a story, since its already being told in the images, hehe. But to be safe, Gobi and Hrim have made it safely back with the others. All will probably keep walking behind taller horses in the future so they don't have to dig up trenches all day long X)

Edit: Ehem, some folks may think because he is small and big snow is trouble for him, that Gobi is a helpless little pony. He is not. Mongolian horses are far more resilient that you might think.

Ahaha, that is just precious and also really clever of Hrim. :nod:
Say, since Heather also comes with a shorter horse, would you mind if I would include Hrim and Gobi to my mandatory pic? I have a lil' idea. ;3

It's really just something simple I had in mind, pretty much Hrim and Gobi coincidently 'digging out' House and Heather and then the four of them digging on together in a two-frames-comic. Y'know, like, small-horse-people gotta stick together. ;3

Both Hrim and Gobi have great attitudes!  Only thing we're missing is their frosty breaths in the close-up panels, but I'm loving seeing someone else doing comic pages.  :boing:  You do such lovely work in these. 

And you are going pretty fast, most times it takes me 2 days at least to get a fully colored comic page done, sometimes 3 days.  :nod:

Ah fuzz I knew I would forget some detail! Of course it has to be the frosty breaths, its always the frosty breath! *dies* I'll have to fix that. Thanks for pointing it out ^^.

I was in a hyper stage, otherwise no way I could have finished it in one day XD thank you!

I see their frosty breaths now!!  Well done!  I love the whole sequence of events and everyone's expressions as they conquer the problem.  What is Hrim asking the nice lady?  "May I borrow your shovel?"  or would it be "buy your shovel?" since it may not be coming back.    Snowflake It's snowing. Snowflake

Yess I added them :giggle: Thank you! 

Oh Hrim is merely saying "Good day" in that panel, the actual moment of bargaining is left to your guess hehe. But she purchased the shovel, because who knows when she might return into that vilage again X3.

The page looks great!  :D

I was wondering if Hrim had bought the shovel outright, it makes sense given the snowy trails ahead of them.  And who knows?  A shovel can be handy for fending off hungry creatures, too.  :nod:

CSStables Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2014  Professional General Artist
Thanks! ^^

Ah yes, the shovel can be used for many things, though in Hungary not many hungry dangerous things will be on the trail. If there are, probably Gobi's hooves will be more swift than the shovel in such a case XD

I think I may take a little leaf from your book and put some furs or something on top of my saddle so Rose can keep her bum warm ;)

Oh yes, furs or sheepskin are a blessing when riding in cold weather, its what we use on our saddles where I ride in Rl as well :>

Hehehe, Helen and Coup de Foudre will encounter similar problems since Coup de Foudre is only 14 hands high.

Aww 14 hands isn't even that short (: I hang around 14 hand horses and they feel normal sized to me, and I'm not exactly short myself XD. I'm sure Coup de Foudre will handle it alright.
