I wanted to make a horse inspired from the direhorse in the movie Avatar after watching it again the other day... Because you know gorgeous those creatures look like, it makes me wish I actually owned one in real life. xD

Anyways I spent several days trying to figure out what colors matched it best (at first it was too pale, and then I made it too purple) but I think this shade of blue fits it well. It has big, stalky legs just like the creature its' based on and also a skinny waist, braided hair (tail) and vibrant blue pattern all over its' body similar to that of the Na'vi tribes people from this movie.

This particular horses' traits are Genius, Brave, and Fast.
