Drum, I know exactly what you mean. xD I'm sure my patience will be nonexistent once I actually go to the barn more than a week when I start leasing Dude. :p Show season is going to kill me (and my wallet) this year, haha.
Fuadteagan, I think it came out good for your first try. It looks like you coloured on the same layer the lines are on though, since they're smudged and parts are erased a little bit. If you create another layer, set it to multiply and colour on that one, the lines will stay untouched.(:
As for the dapple grey Perch, go for it.(: You'll never know if you can do it or not if you don't try.
And the paint stud lines, I was going for a slightly unbalanced look. :p He's suppose to be in the middle of doing some sort of half rear..I was going off memory of when Dude use to do the same exact thing; he'd try to rear, couldn't get enough balance and would go straight back down because he'd not put enough effort into it, lol. I'll try to find a picture of another horse doing it, since I haven't got any pictures from last year and he hasn't done anything with an upward motion this season (cross my fingers, knock on wood). I know there's a high-level dressage move that looks similar to a half rear (except soo much more balance) but I can't remember the name of it at the moment. Otherwise, you are right-the horse is definitely not very balanced, lol.
Also, on the paint you coloured. White markings have shadows and highlights as well. :p And the pink muzzle, most horses don't have an all pink muzzle; make sure to blend and have shadows/highlights fade off a bit, so as not to be so abrupt around the edges.(:
I believe that my next one will be a horse parked out (not positive the breed, even though I sketched it as a TWH). I'm thinking black with one coronet band and a small snip.(: I'll hopefully have it lined by the end of this week and will show the lines before I start. :p
