GoldenHorse, thank you. (: Last time I was on an english lesson was 18 years before, and nowadays I have to speak german (my native language is hungarian). I'm always afraid that I mix things up.

Zaxious, thank you. To tell the truth, I'm not a fan of Dana's Doodles, but I love the cartoons of Norman Thellwell, Lena Furberg and Fanny Ruelle. (:

I've done a little cartooning and I know that it is much harder to do than one might think. For it to be believable, you do have to a
Have some understanding of anatomy, and pay care to be sure that the subjects are positioned over their center of gravity, as they would in real life. If not, they
Will look as if they are about to fall over to one side. I don't know why, but this is always hard for me.

And getting the facial expression is the key, and so easy to get wrong.

Have you taken classes in cartooning, or just learned it on your own?

I learned it on my own - last time that I took (classical) drawing lessons was at the age of 13 (22 years ago, oh my God... ), when my parents wanted me to go to an art school - actually I hated the whole thing, all I wanted was drawing horses, and I left the course after a few months.

In 2007 I founded my horse sanctuary, and after that I had no time for drawing for several years (I made everything by myself on a farm with 18 horses and many-many dogs and cats; to be honest, it was quite a stupid idea, but worked for a couple of years.) I restarted drawing last January, when I moved from Hungary to Zürich, Switzerland (my husband works here). Here I have the opportunity to draw on commission, and beside that I would like to find a job where I can draw cartoons for horse journals, books, etc ( from 2000 I had a job like that at a Hungarian horse journal, but it was quite an unfair story, so after 10 years I quit.) I speak english, german and french, so hopefully I will find something. (:
