Kind of off the wall...collectible horse pets?

I study graphic arts, and have been doing digital art for quite some time before I even decided I wanted to go to college to study it. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a sort of different art idea I could bring to the forums.

What if I made, a few templates of horses. A mare, gelding/stallion, colt and filly. Then I could color them customized according to a picture someone gave me of their own horse, or even just a written idea. I could record the name and "owner" of the horse on a mini-certificate or something, just so you could prove it was made for you.

Almost like a virtual pet, like Neopets or something, except I would be doing each by hand. I think it would be really cool to have little adopt-me horses. There's also the potential for little games and stuff, which would also be fun.

I would love to get some feedback on this!

That's an awesome idea! Would you charge anything to make one? Let me know, I would love one of my mare ;)

I expect they would be free! With limited slots for requests so I don't get overwhelmed. :)

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

So I have base sketches down, now I have to "ink" the lines and make a shading template ^_^ Then we will be ready to rock and roll. I'll probably designate a separate thread for requests. Maybe to X amount every week/month?

I call a spot in first when you're ready! Post the link when you make it! I would definitely limit the requests or you will get very overwhelmed ^^ Maybe like one a day? Depending on how quickly you get them done!
