My friend Jess and I discussed a new gridding technique; I was having a difficult time with the forehead on the winner's horse. Spent the last 2 hours or so working on it, and felt confident enough to transfer it & begin the finalizing processes.

Those are all fantastic!

What you said about fur work, can I just download the muscle memory and knowledge? Cause its just killing me. Haha. Makes sense as to what you said though.


Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.
The $25 horse I didn't want.

One down! Going to go back when I'm less groggy and have a touch-up session, especially with the (fairly rushed) "background."



The horse is drawn in .5mm HB mechanical pencil, and the 'background' was done by varying layers of 4B. I'm also going to work on getting a scan and/or better detail shots! Photo reference was provided by the horse's owner.

The details in the last picture were kind of muffled. So here are some better shots. (: Going to do my touch-ups before work and call it done!

Well done! It looks so simple, (Doing detail on grey horses...ugh) I love the depth on the ears and the details in the halter.

Some of the process -- drawing a Whitetail stag. I can't remember if I found the reference on-line or in my own inventory...





Finished this one, and it's now officially on it's way to the UK to meet its new owner!
To recap, this one was a completion of an old drawing... The girl who's going to get this one loved it as-is, so I just added finishing touches to the original drawing instead of revisiting and drawing it again.
