I actually have a pretty small wrist. I had two pictures of my horse in mind. One was just a head and neck shot, the other was of him cantering. It does not have to be very detailed, but I do not want it to look cartoonish. I just want it big enough that it realistically looks like my horse, not just a horse. Is that reasonable or do I need to think of some place else to put it? I liked the wrist because it was easy to show off without being overly obvious.
I could do the cantering one sideways, with head towards my elbow. It would not look too silly when my arm is down and it would look proper when my arm was up, like here at the keyboard using the mouse.
Darn, now I have been staring at my wrist and all I see are the veins popping out. Is that going to be a problem??
