I have yet to finish my way through this thread. lilruffian - your works are simply awesome. I loved the horse in the snow, and the close up of the dog's nose the best. The others are fantastic aswell. So much inspiration in the artwork section of this forum!

It's been a lil while since you've posted the war pony but I've gotta tell ya...i think it's one of my top favorites from you. It's so gorgeous!

Gosh, you're good! You should paint Mudpie(;

Naw, I doubt any painting could do him justice *cough*challenge*cough*

Tee hee!

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

Hey guys, i'm looking for opinions on this one!
Let me know what you think of the poses below.
Basically, what i'm trying to depict is a native war horse running through a smoky/firey-type scene without its rider...
Hard to explain - just an image in my head right now.

I havent added much detail to the scetches, but it's going to be a pinto of some sort. Any idea on color & pattern??

Here are some outlines i did yesterday. Let me know which you like best of what you think i could change or add!

They are fantastic! The second one kinda looks like it's got a parrot mouth, but they're really good!!
