Latest Drawings :)

Here's a new drawing and also a WIP I've been drawing traditionally a lot recently I'm really enjoying it even more than digital work suprisingly!

Sorry about the quality of the pictures my camera isn't the best.

Cutejessica11 on deviantART

That one is of Apollo a dressage stallion I work with he llooveellyy, and so well behaved! Nothing like people picture stallions he's ridden in the school with mares and behaves perfectly!


And the Wip is of Totillas a famous dressage stallion who is just stunning!




So let me know what you think! Critique is always welcome

It's looking fantastic! Keep up with the progress pics!

Thank you! I definitely will! Your artwork is amazing by the way I hope one day to be as good as you! (Or even half as good would suit me haha)

I suppose you are using grid paper to help you lay out the image porportionally. I still see a very nice drawing and wish it were on quality paper. Your time and talent are worth quality paper.

The image is very nicely laid out, but the photo is not in clear enough focus for me to make any comment in detail.

This is actually done in my sketchbook I drew the grid out haha I use a grid because I'm still not too good with proportions and for complicated drawings like this one (It's my first one with a horse and rider) It helps :) But yes it's drawn on 135g A4 sketching paper not sure what type it is. Thank you!

@SpritLifter: Thank you!

Heres a better quality close up image which will hopefully be better for critique

It's beautiful! Very realistic, good dark shading and highlights when needed.

Only thing I don't like is that the horse is behind the bit, and doesn't look very happy. It's like pre-Rollkur which isn't too nice to look at let alone experience if one were the horse.

:/

But you have such talent!

@Skyseternalangel: Yeah I don't like Rollkur either it's just he's such a stunning horse! And thank you so much it's strange because I've only really been drawing for a couple of months and my first ones were a total disaster! haha

Heres the Reference picture for anyone who's interested, I've linked it because it's a rather large picture :) http://www.letstalkhorses.co.uk/asse...otilas_web.jpg

Well you're doing such a wonderful job :)!! What mediums have you experimented with so far? I found I really like oil pastels and pen (yes pen, not pencil lol)
