Which one do you think would be best? Any opinions?? :)

I like the first one and the last one best(: But they're all beautiful!!!!!

I love you, Mudpie!

I vote for the one I re-posted below -- simply because the scene you described sounds very powerful, and the pose itself depicts a lot of "HAUL BALLS" power with the horse (which would obviously haul it!).



Otherwise, my next vote would be this next one.

This is exactly how I feel too. I LOVE the idea-sounds like a very powerful scene. Seems to be part of a series? Just with how you did the war pony before. And I'm loving it!
But yes the second and third are my favorites.

the third one has both the best anatomy drawing and also has a feeling of being a bit "worried" , which according to your description would be best, I think. They are all very nice. Are they done on a computer drawing tablet?

I think the first one! It really shows a powerful horse running without having to show its legs.

I think I agree that the 2nd & 3rd are my favorites for the above reasons.
But just incase, here are 2 more..
They are just pencil sketches, so i'll go back and make some adjustments to detail and body structure before putting anything to canvas, but these give ya'll a rough idea

hmmm...i still like the middle two from before. But if I had to pick one from the newest two it'd be the second. I really like the angle that you've drawn.

I think either one would be very pretty. Or a buckskin...or a pretty dun. But that's just me
