I hate it when that happens! I've done it way too many times. I go to bed loving something I just finished. I come downstairs the next morning, look at it, and think: O no!

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. ~Aristotle

Well, aside from not being able to fix the muzzle or lengthen the head, the colors in the real thing are much brighter.

The angles don't match the photo, but the painting still came out lovely, tiny. If I hadn't had the photo to compare it to, I wouldn't see a thing wrong - that's probably why I havent been posting my reference photos! Bahahaha

Mudpie! Well, dearie, I need a good photo . The second one is in poor focus or something. A good painting needs a good photo.

Oh, would you really? *leaps into your arms*

I... I... is the grazing picture good? It's too cold to bathe him right now or let him walk around without his blankie :\

I have pictures of his face, though...

Well, I have to see something "cool". Like interesting in color or shape or expression of the hrose. Sorry, but that pic of mudpie grazing doesn't make an interesting painting. A face might do better. Or action shot, but not one of you jumping him 'cause doing the rider and the tack is too much work for a freebie.

Here are two face ones that are interesting looking(:





Oooh! If you could paint "around" the fence!!





And here's one of him and Morgan being all lovey-dovey(:



And here's one of him standing kinda pretty except his back legs are weird.



OMG that would make my life!!!!!!!

Isn't he beautiful??

Ok. I'can mess around with those. Shame your camera doesn't seem to focus tighter. I am just being nit picky. I have paying customers to pay attention to, but when I feel like goofing, I will give it a go. I will try to think of it as "fun", so dont' expect a super detailed drawing, ok? But will try some good color and fun!

Haha oooh goody!! *dances around in circles* These were mostly taken off my phone because I don't own a camera :\

But gawsh he's magnificent! I bet he's really really fun to draw(: Since he's so darned handsome! I can't draw, but I do write about him *points to signature* and that's always a lovely, inspiring experience!! You'd love him if you met him; everyone loves my Mudpie

Thankyouthankyouthankyou and Mudpie loves you!!
