The Judge, the Gypsy and the Warhorse by Howlingmojo The Judge, the Gypsy and the Warhorse by Howlingmojo
"Comes from a fierce line of warrior horses, they told me," Frollo's voice drifted through the forest. "Fears noone. Will stop at nothing. Or so they said."

Here Bucephalus neighed, a reedy sound somewhere between a complaint and embarassment. "You try saying "No" to her, old man."

How could anyone say "No" to her indeed? A forest nymph, daintily stretching out her legs and wriggling her toes atop what was once, until quite recently, his fierce and loyal destrier horse. His warhorse, decorated with daisies woven in his manes. Manes as black and unruly as the girl's.

The man who was once Judge Claude Frollo smiled and stretched his thin muscles in the warm sun. Then he inhaled deeply, taking in the forest scents.

And simply enjoyed the golden moment.

Summer in his heart.



Enjoy the summer folks! I know i am! (And so are they)

Watercolours and inks. And love.

These characters come from "Hunchback of Notre Dame", the Disney version.

Okay! That's what I was thinking, but I wasn't sure. I haven't seen that movie in years; now I'll have to watch it again! Thanks so much. =)

I can feel the love coming from this piece! Frollo looks so desirable here, the little story is nice and Bucaphalus is a very handsome animal ;)

Thank you so much! I would have never thought it, but I really enjoy drawing horses. Especially this cranky black animal. The horse suits Frollo, what can I say?

And also: Yaay for le backgrounds! Believe it or not, but I am growing fonder of doing them every time!

Lucky you!!! Drawing animals is scary, at least to me!!! I suck at drawing animals, hehe.

Yes, please continue to draw your beautiful colour filled backgrounds, they're a pleasure to behold!

This is beautiful! I can never get enough of your artwork! I don't think I've ever seen Claude so...happy and surreal before. But tormented soul or not, he's still drop dead gorgeous!

Esmeralda looks as beautiful as ever, those daisies in her hair an the horse's mane are simply wonderful :love:

Hi, how have you been! I dropped off the face of the planet, but you know, it was a round trip, so here I am! I have missed your work!!

This is absolutly perfect! I love everything about it. I love the hair on Bucaphalus, the details like the braids are perfect, and esp. i love how the flowers mimic those in Esme's hair! And i love the way esme is looking at her hunky man ;) Also, I love the frame around it and how the little leaves pop out of it slightly, i think its a really nice touch!

But yea, brilliant job! also, yum :lick: hehehe

Thank you, thank you so much for your wonderful comment!
I enjoyed this so much, the lovely warm summer days here have been a great source of inspiration. Plus watercolours...I just love them so much. Also, these two...I love them to bits. Can't help it.

Yum. A happy Frollo is just as sexy as a brooding Frollo. :D And what a sultry Esmeralda! I think I speak for all Fresme loves out there when I say I love how many of these utter works of art you've been creating as of late. :D

It is a change to draw him smiling,t hat is for sure. It's an expression that took a while to get used to,for me at least.

And thank you so much! These two...they just inspire me like crazy!
