Amber's Art Stuff!

I felt like sharing some of my art work with people to get other's opinion's (Other than my family..) I'm just an amateur artist and I have never taken Drawing Lessons or Art classes (Does 7th grade art count? Not really, I didn't learn anything.) I completely self taught except for reading up on some tutorials or art books, But that's still self taught right? In my book it is.

Anyways, I'm just NOW starting to draw horses so feel free to laugh at my attempt at my haflinger. I got really lazy with her so..I ended up giving up cause that drawing was pushing my buttons. I draw mostly asian-inspired art, aka anime style? I don't really like classifying it as Anime because it doesn't really look like anime. So lets call them Cartoon Characters xD

I plan on having an art career but we'll see where that goes (Horses may possibly take over my life..Which I'm okay with that!) Anyway, I've blabbered enough. I have a couple drawings below so feel free to comment on them however you like (nice, harsh, what be you)

Thanks for looking ♥


^ Currently the one i'm working on as we speak. I just started colouring it. 8) It's of my cousin hanging upside-down in a tree! I might also add a horse in the background. Still debating..


^Here's another one of my cousin and the pony we just bought her a couple months ago. My attempt at drawing an almost full body horse. Man I need some practice!


^ A rare self portrait has appeared! (lame pokemon joke....) One of the FEW self portraits of myself. I think it's.. alright.


^ This is a digital uh.. painting? Of my friend's character in the online game Fiesta Online. It's my only digital stuff on my laptop since I lost everything else. So uh yeah, Sorry about the outfit, Not the most appropriate but its what her character was wearing ):


^ My first EVER drawing of a horse head shot. This is of my old palomino QH. ♥ She passed away two years ago and I thought it was about time to draw something in memory of her. And yes, I did get credit to use this by the original photographer.


So uh yeah (: That's about all I have for now. I'll probably add more pictures later as I draw them ;p
Thanks for stopping by!

I like your anime style. I went to Sakura con last year and there were all kinds of people there just drawing away at tables and making pictures for money. You 'd fit right in.

I love the eye on the pencil drawing of Beau. It is very realistic and yet stylistic, too.

Thank you! I would love to go to Sakura Con or other anime con's! And thanks so much about the Beau picture. I'm giving it to my grandma and I'm hoping she'll love it.

Actually I'm going into 10th grade. I think you got confused when I said I had art class in 7th grade xD It's okay we all do it some time or another. But yes I plan on not stopping. Art is my passion and I would love to pursue it later on in life. And I think you should start drawing again too, Even if it's not seriously. I find art as a way to let out my stress or put down what I'm feeling without using words.

Those are really awesome drawings. My daughter draws in the same art style that you do. Anime/character style and she is OBSESSED. :) I love your drawings and style! Keep it up, definitely!

I am seeing some real talent when I look at your drawings.

Please keep up the good work and continue to add to that talent.

If you are serious about doing artwork that is more "real to like looking", what I found helps is to look at the subject and concentrate on one area to improve. With horses, I started with eyes, just drawing eyes. Then ears, then the head and putting that together. Then proportion of the body and even did a study on hooves. Drawing them from the front, the side, lifted, cocked, chipped, shod, etc.

I look forward to seeing more of your artwork.
