Need some practice :)

Ok, so I think I'm fairly OK at drawing horses, but I can never find subjects to work on. I'd love it if I could use some of your horses as my muse.
I will of course upload it when I'm done to show you. The only thing I ask is if I can use them in my art class at school if my teacher requests some of my drawings to show her. They will not in any way be used for financial gain.

Picture criteria
  • Muct be clear
  • The bigger the better
  • I work better with headshots, but that's not so say I won't do a body shot
  • I'm not GREAT at people, but I an give it a go.

Ok here are some of my examples.

Horses:

My first attempt

Second attempt

So, if you're interested, post away. I can't promise they'll turn out great. But It's worth a shot. When I do your drawing, I'll post up a preliminary sketch and then the full one after.

I really like that first horse one! I think you captured it very well. =)

This one will probably be pretty challenging if you decide to do, atleast it would be challenging for me! =P



This one probably wouldn't be too hard.



Here's an interesting angle... It'll probably be super challenging though.



I love this picture and it probably wouldn't be too hard.



I did this one for my art class, it'd be interesting to see how you did it, if you wanted to try.



This is how I did it (I'm a painter though so I painted it) and it's a horrible quality picture but you the idea. =)



And if you feel like a whole body shot without movement, here you go.



I hope all these pictures aren't too overwhelming! Just play around with them and have fun! I can find the bigger copies of them if you need that, I just didn't want to make them too huge, yknow? =)

Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Hopefully this is good because this is as big as I can get it (it's cropped from another picture).
I'm glad you like it! I like this one too.

Thank you! It's great.

Oh I've done my preliminary sketch for Millie. It needs a bit of work but I'll fix it before I do the final copy. I just need to charge my camera up before I can take a picture of it

I have one better for you. I've finished it! Again my camera has eaten much of the detail. But still I'm happy with it. I'm very impressed with the eye. I hope you can still some of the original beauty of it.

Here you go
