Bedhead does art!

I really just feel like sharing... while I'm working on my hand drawing skills, I do a type of art called 'photomanipulation'; on Deviantart there are people who post 'stock' photos of horses (or other animals), and we (the artists) take the photo and manipulate it into what we need it to be; add markings, change the hair style, remove tack, add wings, etc. Some people will even take parts of different horses and blend them together to get the desired pose. I hand draw my hair and eyes from scratch. I'm still a beginner, but here's what some of my stuff looks like;

(this particular one is a wip so I got lazy on the back end as it will be covered, and there's a random stray hair...)

This horse started off as a palomino with a blaze, brown eyes, four stockings.

I forget what this one started off as... probably black or brown.

That one was a chestnut with some white markings.

Here's a hand drawn, hand shaded by me for the giggles. It still needs hair, and I'm sure it would appreciate an eye, but I am lazy


Also, please don't run off with these ._. There's a reason I'm starting to put credits on the faces and under the eyes.

x3 Yeah, I know what you're talking about, photomanipulations. I love the way you do them, and the manes are very nice!
