40th birthday: Tron by AbrX
40th birthday: Tron
I am not a half bad photographer. But what I do love about comissioning art (compared to my own photography) is not only how artist manage to create fantastic scenes; It's the ability to mix stories and genres that fascinates me to no end. Those who know the movie sure will recognize this scene.

And that is the last of the works I publish to celebrate my 40th birthday. My thanks for this pice go to the incredible Maxa. Go and check out his gallery. The works he does are breath taking.

40th birthday: Hexenhorse above the clouds by AbrX
40th birthday: Hexenhorse above the clouds
Hexenhorses such as Abraxas are very capable of walking on thin air and run above the clouds (check out the German children's book "Krabat" for the inspiration for that). Little known fact: Running above the clouds can be pretty dangerous, as certain flowers try their best to attract the horse's attention and lure him closer with their sweet promissing scent. What might happen once a flower has their petals on him? I won't tell... or maybe I will... some day :)

I've been looking forward to publish this picture I commissioned by Didi Esmeralda for quite some months now. Another wonderful piece to celebrate my 40th birthday. Thank you, Didi.

40th birthday: Comic ideas by AbrX
40th birthday: Comic ideas
Last summer I toyed with the idea of creating the script for a larger comic. I had a very rough outline and was looking for the right inspiration on the style this comic might be in. Sadly work and other stuff got into my way and before I knew it, the idea was drowned under a pile of RL crap. Too bad. But what I still have are these character portraits of Arressia, me and Abraxas - although I must admit that I look in now way as cool in RL as Lufidelis made me look. Looking at the portraits today makes me think if I should move that pile of RL crap and rescue the comic idea from the depths?

Technically this is not one of the works I commissioned for my 40th birthday. But what better moment to share them than on this day?

40th birthday: Chess by AbrX
40th birthday: Chess
Chess is a motive that seems to match so naturally to the way of pony play my beloved wife and me share. The fact that the horse is called "knight" in English chess terms only adds to the stories that come to our mind: The Dark Queen's knight...

I wanted to try a new style for this story idea. And Harpokrates was just the right artist for that. Make sure to check out his gallery, he does some pretty awesome stuff. I especially love the level of detail he put into the horse mask. Thank you for taking this little commission to celebrate my 40th birthday.

40th birthday: Forever by AbrX
40th birthday: Forever
As you already know by now Abraxas is very good at digging his own grave (figuratively spoken). I really wonder how he'll be able to get out of this mess again?

Today I read somewhere a quote by Scott McCloud: "In general, Western comics are about GETTING somewhere while Eastern comics are about BEING somewhere." I find that very fitting for this little gem of a comic. Oh boy, I am so looking forward to have this one printed and framed.


"Do whatever comes to your mind; I trust you!" I know, I know... this is the most lame excuse for commissioners to be lazy and give the artists nothing to work with. But this was a special case. So I was very happy when Jidane accepted to do "a little something" to celebrate my 40th birthday (which is today).

Jidane is one of the first people I met in the community when I first joined in 1999. It was fun to have someone living close by (back then we used to live only a 40min drive apart) and also being so incredibly talented and fun to talk to. I think somewhere hidden on my hard drive I still have our first ICQ logs. And? Our friendship has survived 16 years now. Thank you for being a friend, Jiji.

Your gift for me was a warm welcome, when I first opened my account here on deviantArt ten days ago. I didn't know what to expect. After the long outtage of furaffinity I was looking for a more reliable service - and also a service where you could easily connect to your watchers and to other artists. My experiences with the furaffinity-community had left me pessimistic. I thought it would be very hard to find an audiance for my photos and especially the stories I combine my photos with. But it's my wish to entertain an audiance that made me publish my creative works in the first place. Wy spend hours and hours at your computer, tweaking photos, crafting texts if no one reads or actually cares?

So I expected to have a slow start here, expecting just a few people maybe even noticing my works. But I was blown away by the positive reaction and feedback I got for both, my Hexen-Horse stories and my real horse experiences.

Thank you all, for watching me, for fav-ing my works and especially to thos who left comments.

You encourage me to continue re-publishing old works as well as new works.

Hey, I'm sorry, once ago I've been here and I've asked u if it would be ok if I drew the white stallion of this pic, I did it but It get weird, I'd like to try out it again, if I can of course! I also want to thank you, because by Abraxas I found out the pony-play world and I fell in love with it, I love Abraxas and the whole group, I really love! I'd like to ask too if I can make some other questions by notes. Thanks for your attention, I really love it all!
