My Hine sprites are big and beautiful, but there is a bit of a problem when you try to make a cavalry with them... The default horse from MV is just too small! Even the larger horses made by awesome people like Avery are tiny compared to my Hine sprites, so I knew I'd have to make them at some point.
Luckily the amazing FrozenNorseman wanted the same thing, so he commissioned a Hine horse sprite!
I ended up feeling pretty inspired, so I made quite a few markings that I can mix and match (I'll probably release those later). Now, on to the sprites!
First, the basic horse sprite:
But since just a plain horse isn't super useful for people who want to have mounted sprites, so I made some nice tack for the horses.
Of course, it's not easy to just plop a human sprite onto the horse and have it look good, so here are some templates for riders!
And finally, a mounted guard riding a fiery chestnut horse, who can ride the perimeter of your towns and make sure everything stays safe!
And that's it for now, but I'll definitely be making more horse variations in the future.
Now, I have a question for y'all: would you pay for a pack of horses? There would be a lot more than the ones here (heck, I've got more facial markings than I used here already), in varying colors and with more rider options. This is an experiment I'm thinking of doing, since as I'm sure you've noticed I haven't been posting as many resources lately, and that's because unfortunately time=money... So if I could make some extra cash from my work, I may be able to actually release more stuff instead of flailing around to make sure I can afford food.
Of course, I'll still be releasing free resources when I can. And if y'all wouldn't pay for a horse pack, then I'll just release some variations eventually. But I'm curious and just want to know, so please leave your thoughts in the comments! :)
Here's where you can find my pieces, and my updates to the generator packs.
