    Added a few more details before I go out for the night. I don't know how to convince myself to not go so dark on my outlining, its one of my many problems.

    People suck! I do have to say. Its so hard to be able to create the soft look of skin without messing everything up....UGH! This one has to be one of my best (Sadly). I now see the head is too big and I have to fix the cheek. There were no details in the face in the reference photo so its had for the eyes... Its give or take.... Thank you though I wanted to start challenging myself so I thought a scene would be good to start branching out. It required me to be up to par on how I draw horses so it doesn't look like a decently drawn horse with a deformed person from mars on its back.

    Here is the horse and rider, Contemplating doing a little blending but I am liking the roughness for right now....

    And I believe I'm finished...I tried a background and I'm not very happy with it. I think it looked better before I added in the picture. Ugh. It was good practice anyhow.

    Hmmm...looking good! I never draw so many details, I keep messing the drawing up in the end

    The only thing that I see here is that your person seems a bit big for the horse...or is it just me overreacting like I normally do? Well, just my opinion. But how on earth are you able to put so much detail in your drawings!!?? I'm impressed!

    I tend to focus too much on details and mess up my work. Its hard to find a happy medium. I find myself liking other peoples drawings that are much simpler. There is always something about someone that can do a lot with just a little bit of shading or line work. Then again its all personal preference. Thank you though!

    In general the rider is pretty big. Cutting horses tend to be smaller and when they get down like that they look even smaller...BUT my riders head is too big and my horses head too short.

    Here is the original photo (I'm not going to post it here as it's not mine but found on google)

    Good to know. I've been finding it very hard to find good photos. I guess I'll stick to stock on DA.

    Fantastic work!! I love all your horses eyes, I find it very hard to make it look real. Love the pastels as well.

    I have a stack of photo's of all types of horses if you want reference! (:

    Thank you! It took a little while to figure out how to make them look semi-realistic. I just found out how important the reflection of light while keeping it with a spherical look. It took me years to just get a simple idea about it.

    I responded to your message but I would love more reference photos.
