It doesn't happen often but...

I have actually finished all of my commissions a month before Christmas for the first time in years!! I'm turning down any new commissions at this point that are for Christmas, and only taking them for the new year so I've got some time to spend honing my horse drawing skills again :)


I'm willing to do two people's horses on here so I can practice. It's not going to be a case of first in first served. I will ONLY take the best two photos and would prefer not to do fully bodies but if it is a photo that I like I'll consider it.
Photo's MUST be clear (not from a mobile phone camera), not in the distance, clean horse and a decent angle (not from a 3/4 behind view... that doesn't make for a good drawing!!). I am also willing to not charge for postage should anyone want to buy a drawing from me in the next 3 days. (Will only do A4 size drawings of a horse's head/neck only without postage. Anything bigger will cost me too much to send O/S and I may be willing to halve the postage cost. Just ask ;)) Keeping in mind you may not get it until the first few months of next year seeing as Christmas is a busy time for me.

I have a couple of my TB that I would love to have drawn! (any of them)

I know you said no full body ones but I thought I'd throw that in just incase.

Hi Aztecbaby, your boy is lovely! I'll just wait until I get a few more photo's together and chose. Depending on how quickly I get to do them, I might do more than two. It'll be varying from graphite, charcoal and pastel because the point of me doing these is more so to increase what I can do and let me have a play without the pressure of a paying commision.

Yeah it's just too fuzzy and the angle won't make for a good drawing.

Hey Kayty~ congrats on your commissions! That's a huge accomplishment and I'm sure a huge weight off of your shoulders
So I thought I'd throw a few photos out there-
