Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hi there! My name is Renee AKA Crimson-Mane and I am an artist currently residing near Brisbane, Australia with my partner DSEast and our two silly doggies. Here on my dA page you'll find some fantasy horses, MLP fanart, engraved glasses and maybe some floppy corgis! However, you never know what you'll find here. I sincerely hope you'll decide to stick around. :heart:

To view ALL of my work, please visit my Facebook page. Not everything I create makes it to dA.

My deviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 7:26 PM

I joined dA 10 years ago in 2004, with this account under the name SilverBrumby. I had nooo idea I'd still be here 10 years later. While I did enjoy drawing, the thought of submitting my pictures and putting them on the internet for all the world to see was terrifying! I had a crappy old hand me down computer, MS paint and a mouse. My drawings mostly consisted of Lion King, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and Silver Brumby fanart... the stuff I was obsessed with the most at the time, basically. Most of these I've deleted, which I regret doing now. However there are a few old disasters still lurking in the back of my gallery! Here's some:

+Innocence+ by Crimson-Mane

*facepalm* I couldn't have come up with a less generic background? One of my first submissions - a prize for somebody on a Spirit forum I often haunted.

Camello and Tyra by Crimson-Mane

Before Tyra (right) had swirly markings and those ravishing red locks. She looks weird. The stallion on the left was a friend's character. I apologize profusely for making him look like a big Spirit derp rip off.

Trade with Tahaji by Crimson-Mane

This is when I finally moved on from using MS paint and started using a program called PaintShop Pro. It was only mildly better, but I was still working with a mouse. No tablet yet.

 -The autumn breeze- by Crimson-Mane

Then finally one day in 2005 I went out and bought a tablet, which seemed to be all the rage on this dA site. It came with Photoshop Elements and once I started using these two things together I fell in love. I was extremely proud of this piece and it was this that really fueled my enthusiasm to draw more. Took me way too long to stop using the dreaded grass brush though! Yuck.

Tyra - Character Ref Sheet by Crimson-Mane

Tyra got her swirls soon after, when I decided my OC needed a bit more "oompf". I still don't know what inspired the new markings - I just started doodling swirls on her because I love drawing swirls. Amazing, huh? A flood of Tyra art followed over the years:

Springtime by Crimson-Mane Tyra Loves You by Crimson-Mane I Love You by Crimson-Mane Glitter in the Air by Crimson-Mane Tears and Petals by Crimson-Mane

I think her mane gets more red in each piece. :XD:

Hippeastrum by Crimson-Mane Pikachu Batman Shirt by Crimson-Mane Zombie Dash by Crimson-Mane Unicorn Shirts by Crimson-Mane PikaNoms by Crimson-Mane

Over the years my style became more my own, and I experimented more with shading styles and what I could do with backgrounds. I went from brush stamping to painting and from drawing with pencil and scanning my sketches to drawing directly onto screen (thanks to the purchase of my wonderful Wacom Cintiq in 2012). My art exploded and I started to branch away from horses to concentrate on the little business I'd made for myself (selling my artwork on prints and t-shirts anywhere I could!)

Early last year I decided to try glass engraving after seeing a lady selling her own work at a market stall, and I was very inspired to try it for myself - with the mindset that I'd fail hard at it of course. A year and a half later I'm still making them and they are my most popular product. The custom orders poured in and I was chuffed.

Fluttershy Glass - Commission by Crimson-Mane Sweet Apple Acres Cider Glasses by Crimson-Mane Toothless: Defenders of Berk - Engraved Glass by Crimson-Mane

So yep, still here in 2014 and even though I've had my ups and downs with dA - I always end up coming back, and I'm sure I will continue to do so for a long time yet.
I honestly wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the amazing ZoeZareefa so I've chosen to feature her beautiful artwork. After taking a break from dA about 5 years ago I was hesitant about returning, but she encouraged me and here I am. Without her help I doubt I'd be here at all - and possibly not even drawing. So I owe a lot to her. A feature doesn't really cut it but it will have to do until I can give you a hug in real life. :heart:

The Mating Dance by ZoeZareefa Tyra Badge - Gift by ZoeZareefaHappy Birthday Brumvy Poo by ZoeZareefa Darkstorm Ref Sheet by ZoeZareefa Magic by ZoeZareefa Nebula by ZoeZareefa Is this a dream? by ZoeZareefa Queen Zalina of the Zhareefae by ZoeZareefa Sunbeam Badge - Commission by ZoeZareefa 

Thanks for reading this if you've made it all the way to the end! I'm glad I overcame my fear of people looking at my art, because I've made some terrific friends through this site and I've learned so much from so many great artists. And if you've been following me for 10 years - then you are a certain special kind of wonderful. :heart:
