Pencil Drawing - Race Horse

I occasionally do commissioned (reptile) artwork but used to draw horses all the time when I was younger (probably because I spent so much of my time out in the barn with the horses). Anyways, I did this drawing as a favor to my mom: it was a Christmas gift for the doctor that oversees her department/wing from her and the rest of the nursing staff. He co-owns a racehorse that died suddenly right before Christmas. Just wanted to share it with others that might appreciate horse art.

That's gorgeous! I love the little bits of purple mixed in with the graphite!

Thanks for the compliments...I usually mix a bit of color into my drawings, for this particular one the horse owner's racing colors were purple and yellow. I'm thinking about doing a series of them (race horses), working on this one was so fun.

raywonk - I envy people who can draw cartoon style drawings, I can't do it to save my life. I sometimes sketch when I'm on the phone or at work, which is about as close as I can come to not doing realism:

and some of my creepier dead horse-type animals stuff:
