Thanks! I'll try and draw an arab this week. If it's any good I might give it to my best friend next time I see her. Thanks for the tips! I am rubbish at drawing the basic shapes and then the outline around it, like you did Gallop
I don't seem to get the hang of it.

Well, one thing I forgot to tell you I did was this.
Invest in some tracing paper.
Trace the horse, DON'T WORRY ABOUT DETAILS!
Then, draw (without tracing) the horse you see on your tracing.
THEN worry about details.
It makes you think about the main idea first, details later.

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

I don't like tracing paper... I feel as if I am relying on the paper to draw a photo... But I guess its just a matter of personal opinion. Tracing might work for one person and not the other. It doesnt work for me but it might work for you! Give it a try!

To me it's good! I can't draw anything lol! I think I'll stick to editing photos and taking photos! :P
Tips: I have none! I don't know a thing about art when it comes to pencil and paper! :P

Hey Phantom,

I have been making creating since I can remember. I'm now 32 years old and I'm still hard on myself from time to time. I believe to some extent all artists are. Ask yourself it creating deep down makes you happy? Are you drawn to art? If so never give up. Talent is ever growing and ever changing. Just keep photos of your art from year to year and look back and reflect. You will see the changes if you are willing to work on it.
I see here the developing understand of a horses structure. I wish that I had old draws from my younger days I could show you which looked much like this to what I have done now.
Don't ever give up! Not if it is what you have a passion for doing. I promise with each drawing you will get better. I love that you are using photo reference. Try going to shows and taking your own photos to work from. Draw from life and nature. The talent is there... planted like a seed inside you... all it needs is help to grow. :o)
