Taking requests for horse portraits

Hello, I'm open for requests on free or commissioned horse portraits. Just post a picture of your horse and I'll draw it. :) I prefer full-body pictures with lots of highlights and shadows but anything works. I can use pastel, pencil, colored pencil, ink, charcoal, and for paid commissions I can use oil or acrylic paint.

Here are some examples of my work:

"Baquito" - 20 x 16 oil on canvas




"Dragster" - 18 x 24 pastel




"Pyro Thyme SA" 9 x 12 graphite

Clam a llama down, calm a llama deep down in the ocean blue like a barnacle. Sitting in the tight place! Gotta love the Mighty Boosh!

Your oil painting is fabulous. I love, love, love the background. I would have never thought to make it brown too, but the horse stands out amazingly enough. Here's my request. Do whatever inspires you!

Just a short interjection here; The first picture that Peppyrox posted of her horse shows a horse in perfect self carriage. If we could ride our horses and they look like that , that would be perfection!

See how he has lifted the base of his neck, the neck has a perfectly arched line to the poll, where the head falls naturally down, almost exactly on vertical.
One lovely horse!!!

Very off topic, but I realised it as well.

Thanks everyone for all of the requests! I really had no idea how popular this thread would be. Once there gets to be 10 requests, I'll temporarily be closed until I can get caught up, but I will get started as soon as I can.
