Bad Horse:Thoroughbred of Sin by Svenly Bad Horse:Thoroughbred of Sin by Svenly
Why does Bad Horse amuse me so much? I really don't know. He's just... so bad.
If you don't know who Bad Horse is you really need to watch Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, it is the best thing I have seen all summer. For serious, check it out, or bad horse will come after you.

Bad Horse! Bad Horse! Bad Horse! Bad Horse!
He rides across the nation, the thoroughbred of sin!
He got the application that you just sent in!
It needs evaluation, so let the games begin!
A heinous crime! A show of force! (A murder would be nice of course)
Bad Horse! Bad Horse! Bad Horse! He's bad!
The Evil League of Evil is watching so beware!
The grade that you receive will be your last we swear!
So make the Bad Horse gleeful, or he'll make you his mare!
You're saddled up! There's no recourse! It's high-ho silver!
Signed Bad Horse!

When a character is made by the creator of the Tick and manages to end up in a Whedon project, it's a masterpiece.

He kept pitching Bad Horse to Joss for Angel.

So he used it for Dr Horrible.

I agree, it has to still be one of my favorite concepts for a character ever.

Bad Horse has to be one of the most awesome creations I've ever seen for the pure simplicity and bad horse-ness. :)

I absolutely LOVE this, your art is just improving so much with every post! This one's very fairytale-creepy, so right up my street :D I also really like the effect the touches of red against the black/greys have. It certainly makes me want to know more about the story!

Oh, much love for this. I love the glowing aura around the horse, and his eyes glowing out from his silhouette. This tells such a story, and the background is just perfect. I like the style you used here.

You know, I've said it before, but I'll say it again. You're improving by leaps and bounds. (Not that I'm anyone to judge art, but in my humble opinion, you are.) :heart:

Aw, that's nice of you to say, especially since I'm pretty sure I don't know much about art. Honestly, I'm just practicing. I'd love to go to school. :)

Now that looks really cool! It reminds me of the Headless Horseman's horse, with the glowing eyes and all that. Neat! =)

I think part of the awesome is you're expecting it to be a guy, then it's... a horse. An evil horse.

Sadly someone told me he was a horse and it ruined the initial magic of him, but it still was beyond awesome when I finally saw him and he actually was a horse, just a regular horse. I expected a costume.
