Cream & Sugar... On paper!

My other "art journals":
Equines in Pixel & Cream & Sugar: My Art Journal (digital).

I haven't faded out just yet! As of late, I've actually started to venture into the world of traditional art (on paper) after a prolonged hiatus with Photoshop & a drawing tablet.

First is Blackjack, a Tennessee Walking Horse gelding (he's boarded at a stable I work at) who's very loving and inquisitive. LOVE his "pixie ears." His owner, despite not knowing me that well, has been insanely sweet to me... She gave me Appaloosa World magazines from 1985, '86, and '87 (one is the annual stallion edition), some AQHA magazines, and a drawing book.

So as a thank-you, I'm going to give her a portrait of her horse. :) Here's the preliminary sketch; once I finish this concept, I'm going to transfer it onto Canson Bristol paper and begin the final process.

HATE drawing the mane/forelock.


Reference from my own photography! (Flipped for now, because I draw better left-facing, being a righty. Will be flipped in the right direction in the final product.) Constructive critique encouraged! :)

EDIT - It is at a slight angle. My fault for holding the image on my lap when I took the picture instead of putting it on the floor and standing over it. Will replace with a scanned version when I fix the slimey thing.

I love the sketch quality of your drawings. They have an almost classical feel.
The only critisism is to make the eye a little larger. I always try to err on the side of a larger eye.

Can't wait to see the finished product. Bristol paper? That's a hard , kind of shiny surface? What medium will you use?

The bristol I have is for pencil, colored pencil, or pastels. So I'll likely use a combination.

And I'm not going to lie that I've been messing with that eye since I drafted the head. 8| It's always the eye!

As for the "classic," not sure what you mean by that entirely but... I look a lot at artists from the 1900s. Back when the form & realism was more abundant than now, where it's a lot about style. Once I get my photo-realism down I'm very likely to branch out and start to tinker with "styles" to find my niche.

Here's the second update; I haven't worked on it since I posted the first images. Still need to fuss with that darned eye!


Putting too much detail into the draft, but having fun anyway.

It's looking better. The eye was maybe a bit small? I didn't see the ref pictures, tho.

That's going to look SO good when you're done(:
