Looking for a good action shot
I am a member of an artists group on facebook and every couple weeks we are given a theme from which to draw/paint/sculpt/photograph/etc. I have been slacking due in part to commissions and lack of inspiration. Our theme this week is "movement" and I really want to let loose with a good action shot of a horse. Nothing very detailed. I just want to create a piece that really gives off the feel of "movement".

Please share your best action shots here. I have no idea what medium I am going to use, but I am sure something will come to me when I find a picture that "speaks" to me.

The deadline for this theme is the 28th, so not a ton of time.

Let the posting begin.

PIFT, who needs pics of a horse, when you could have a picture of my JRT's :lol:

Cheecho: 21 month old JRT
Bria: 10 week old JRT

They are out of the same parents. Momma dog is now retired, and spayed.

If you look close you can find little Bria lol

I recognized Hugo immediately, so I just had to draw him in light of his passing. I played around with my charcoal pencils and soft pastels and tried not to worry about fine detail work and more try to capture the essence of "movement". Kayty, I hope I did your handsom boy justice. I am so sorry for your loss!
