Photoshop Painting Progressions

I was talking to my friend and I asked her what her fav. Breed and colour was, she replied with Gypsy cob, and Piebald. So, without looking at any photo's, I started to draw/paint (on photoshop) I've only ever drawn very few off the top of my head, so was please this one didn't come out lopsided!

I'm super happy with how it turned out!!

Progression, from the start

End result, Arabella.

For a long time I used to just do work in photoshop. I took found it easier to mess with proportions and being able to fix anything. I love the undo button I must say. ;) I eventually lost patience after getting a new computer and not having my familiar program.

Your work here has a lot of feel to it. It still looks artistic though which I always love. Great job. You have a great understanding of equine proportions and highlights on fur. Keep up the good work.

Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.

Nice job! I like that horse a lot. It's pretty realistic.

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**
