    I need practise!

    Hi everybody.

    I'd really love to get better at drawing horses, but I'm lacking good references. If you want, post a picture you want me to draw. Please limit it to one picture per person, so I don't have to choose which one to draw! :) Also, I don't really like drawing people, so could you please make sure the picture doesn't have a person in it?

    I don't know for sure how long it will take me to draw each one, but I promise that once your photo has been added to the list, I'll finish your drawing!

    Now, here are three of my more recent examples:

    I used a step-by-step book for the horse, but I didn't follow it too closely. As you can tell, I really don't like drawing people!

    This is one of my favourites, and I think I put the most effort into this one.

    I just did this one today, the reference being the cover of one of my magazines. It took me a total of half an hour, but I despise the head and you can tell I rushed the mane P:

    Good job. I'm an artist by day, and massage therapist by other days and you did very well on these. I can tell you have a good eye for detail and "see" things the non-artist folk don't. Keep it up :)

    The first thing I noticed was your shading and muscle shading..They are wonderful! Adds depth and life..The person needs help but you have gotten a good start horse-wise:)

    Thanks, goldilockz and sunny06! :)

    And yep ... I don't plan to try and draw people. Ever. I think I'd just embarrass myself further! Teehee P:

    The shading is really good, especially in the second drawing. Some of the proportions are a bit off, but not distracting.

    I do a similar thing on myspace , where I have people post pics of their horses so I can sketch them and get in some practice. It has REALLY helped me refine my skills. I may start one in here some other time.

    Kepe up the good work.

    Great drawings!
    I know you said not to post two pictures, but these two are basically the same thing.

    You can do either one, I didn't know which leg position would be easier for you (or harder, if you want a challenge )

    I would love if you could do one of my boy. I'd love if you could leave out the rider and tack. Thanks so much!!
