WANTED: You & your horse!

Link to my deviantART --> MissileSweet

You can begin posting your photographs -- on December 07, 2012 I will announce the three "winners" who will have their portrait drawn.
My Goal
My goal is to, every 2 weeks, complete at least 3 drawings in each medium section (there are 6 different sections). This will be a challenge to draw more frequently as well as give me completed work for my portfolio with various mediums, as well.

Round 1... Pencil Portraits
December 08, 2012
ENDS (Images will be posted)
December 22, 2012.
Sizes will range from 4"x6" up to 6"x9" for this round.
__________________________________________________ ____

What I'm looking for...
  1. Crisp, clean images -- size does not matter, as long as the quality is good.
What I like...
    1. I'm a sucker for adventurous poses and angles. I also love "off the wall" colors and patterns. (This does not apply if the angle makes the animal look distorted.)
    2. Emotion and Character -- rather than taking a photo with your horse with a blank face... Smile! That is, if you're in the photo. Otherwise, choose a picture of your horse that captures its personality at its finest.
Aside from copyright infringement "rules," the possibilities are endless. I can work directly from your photograph or you can request a different pose/expression!

I will reserve the right to freely place any/all images in on-line and "real life" portfolios as samples (they will not be sold under any terms).

Ooh..I have one I think you'd love, lol. It has a little of the grainy look, but it's clear enough that I'd use it as a reference. I have a clearer one too, so I'll post a backup if you can't do/don't like the bit of grain.(:

Does the start mean wait until then to post the pics, or..? Lol

This maybe? (I have full permission from the photographer to use the photos of my horse for personal use/copies/etc)

Subbing to post later! I have a couple of adorable pictures.

Btw, amp, that third photo there cracks me up. That is toooo funny!

**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.**

I might as well throw a couple in :) I have plenty that you would probably like to do in my collection, but they aren't of my horses sadly.

How exciting! :)

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
