Here are a few works in progress, the first one is a commission I'm working on and the rest were just for fun.



Here's a sketch I made of an Arabian, I'm planning on shading it sometime but haven't gotten around to it yet.



This is a drawing I started over winter break. The top of the neck is unfinished and there's a lot of work left to do on the background, but hopefully it will turn out. It will definitely be the most complicated background I've done for a drawing.



This is my longest ongoing work in progress, it's almost 2 years old now. It's a digital painting, and although the horse (soon to be unicorn) wasn't much of a problem, the background has been extremely difficult. I have a bunch of references but none are quite what I'm picturing it to be and I'm having a hard time trying to make up what a whole forest, ground, and cliff should look like. I'd love any suggestions on this one. :)

Oh, yes I saw that last one on another thread I think....
The third one looks really good, it will be awesome once you get it finished!

I wish I could get all the shading and detail you do. I just am not that good...
Maybe I will have to take some time to scan some of my stuff and get some advise from the resident Forum artists.

I find if I really "feel" the subject, my end result is so much better.
Are you the same way, or can you draw anything and have it be perfect?

Oh, just an off topic question.
What does your user name mean? Just curious....

It's a japanese name that I used for a really old character of mine. It's kind of a variation of Akushou, which was the name of one of my friend's characters. Akushou doesn't actually mean anything though, lol.

Akuinnen,

As for my opinion on the digital piece; There's something about the placement of the horse and the moon. Look at the negative shape formed by the space around the horse'se belly and legs, and the moon. It is complicated and mirrors the shape of the horse so much , and is so bright that at first glance I have trouble sepereating it from the horse itself. Perhaps, if you moved the moon to the right a little? Or, you could make the shadows of the trees radiate back toward the viewer, as the would with the light source in that location. Or, give the trees a "silver lining" as the moon would brighten one edge ofthem.

Just ideas. I don't do digital art so I have no idea if I am saying to do somethign easy or hard.

The pencil drawing is stunning! Very well done!

Definitely move the moon behind the trees... that way the horse is the main focus :) I LOOOVE IT!!!

Thank you! :) It's definitely the most complicated background I've ever tried to do with graphite so hopefully it will turn out. I haven't worked on it since winter break but I might try finishing it over spring break this upcoming week.
