Horse artists. Perhaps you can help? This is very important to me
Trouble has been mine for eight years. My dearest partner. I have this image of him in my head, rearing up playfully with his kind dark eyes.
I am a horrible artist. I want to capture this in art work and have it tattooed to my body.

Most artists i have mentioned this to hardly know what a horse LOOKS like so they would have a problem making this for me.

I'm assuming you are in the horse artwork part of this site because you love drawing/painting and horses.

This is Trouble. If you can make me a drawing of him and i like it enough i will put it on my body. He doesn't have to be rearing.

Thank you.

I might take a stab at it. :smile: I am one of many horse artists on this forum so I'm sure you'll get at least a few others too. Tomorrow I'm going to be very busy with cooking a turkey but I'll also have the day off so maybe I can mess around with some sketches. If you like one of them enough I could finish it for ya.

Because there's the possibility of using this for a tattoo, what location do you have in mind and what size/level of detail are you looking for? Plain, solid tone black or in color with shading?

In color, but i would be happy even with a line art. I want it starting on on my rib cage ending at my hip bone so I have a 6"x6" area to work with at the most.

Here's some extremely rough, tiny pose sketches. It's hard to imagine what exactly would work as a tattoo. I think the composition would need to be very circular but I've never done something like this before so I just jotted down everything that came to mind. I could try a more specific pose if you want or you could let me know if you like anything down there enough for me to make a finished version.

I'll take a stab at it :) I will post something later tonight!

Oh and do you have any other standing photos of him that are semi from the front?

Also, can you explain his personality a little bit? lol It helps me with the drawing process :)

PintoJumper 11-22-2012 10:40 PM

He is always very alert. He's calm though, really wise looking he always looks like he's examining what's going on around him or planning. I guess that's the cow horse in him. Old soul describes Trouble well. He's the most athletic horse I've ever known

here's more pictures from the front that first one is pretty old, the second is from two months ago.

I really like the trotting one on the left of your page

PintoJumper 11-23-2012 07:31 AM

If you could draw this exact picture of him, exaggerate the muscle a little because he was out of shape here and make his mane shorter I think it would be the ideal picture of him. The more i think about him the more i want a softer representation of him. I want to see him on my body like how i see him when i open his stall door, soft eyed, alert, and most importantly youthful. I wish that halter and cross tie weren't in the way.
