I'll draw your horse -- while you watch!

There's an "Internet television" program called Livestream that enables users to broadcast live what they're doing. It can be hooked up to a web camera or a desktop! Being as I'm a digital artist, I use it for its desktop capabilities.

So I'm inviting all of you to send me a picture of your horse (it can be as an attachment here) and then come watch me draw it! I will be doing detailed sketches/drafts of your horse, since I don't have enough time to do a full portrait, but I may be able to come back to the drawing later and then send it to you!

Even if you don't want your horse drawn, feel free to come in and have a discussion with me and other viewers. I can also offer a critique session (where I critique/correct your artwork live). This channel is friendly for all ages; I will not play vulgar music or display any vulgar content. I will also not allow vulgarity in the chat.

The music I play -- if I play any at all -- will be mostly contemporary and/or instrumental music. Feel free to place a request or two!

Come watch, chat, or just sit back and relax!

If the video box says Offline, I am either experiencing technical difficulties, away from the computer, or gone for the night. But I'll schedule annual drawing sessions!



Various horse sketches, many of them in the first stages of sketching.

Tess & Ellen portrait, work-in-progress (WIP), seen in various stages. Photo provided by the rider.

Not Over the Hill Yet, a fantasy horse drawing. Reference from Google. Also a WIP.

Dos Amigos, drawn in September 2010.


Where does the artwork go once you've finished?
When I finish the artwork, it will be placed on my DeviantART page for open critique and comments.

Will you claim all of the credit?
No! I will post a direct link to the image I have referenced, as well as cite your username (for privacy) as: "Original Photo Copyright [...] on HorseForum.com"

Can I have a copy of the art?
Yes! As long as you aren't selling the art (or giving it to someone else to sell for you) or claiming the artwork as your own, I will e-mail or private message you a high-resolution copy of the drawing(s) with your horse(s) in it. I will also notify you if I revisit the drawing.

What are you using?
I use a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet and Adobe Photoshop 7.0. I may also use Adobe ImageReady for animations, which I hardly ever do.

Do you accept commissions?
Yes. Prices are negotiable if you're interested. I want my art to be affordable without me being ripped off, so the lowest I will go is $5 USD. Payment methods can be negotiated, as well.

Do you do hand-drawn art?
Yes, I do! Unfortunately I don't have a scanner, which is why I only show my digital artwork.

Sounds very cool!
Sorry they're so big!

(If you chose this one maybe you could show her mane flipping up? it's one of my favorite features of her)

Going to bed for now!

I've saved all of your pictures in a folder for this, with your screen names attached. I'll send you a message when I broadcast your drawing!
