Looking For Subjects
I'm doing a personal sketchbook challenge in which I'm trying to do 60 (or 59) horse (portrait) sketches/studies. If you're willing to let me use your horses/other horse photos as references, I'd be really grateful!

Especially looking for fun and quirky photos, horses with personality and/or interesting breeds.
Probably not going to draw everything, and definitely not in order: my tastes are very much swayed by inspiration. So you don't have to be the first one to post or anything. :)

I'll PM you if I drew your horse/photo. If you like, you can ask for a larger resolution scan of the drawing to print out yourself. You're also welcome to post a low resolution copy of the drawing on your web page (including services like MySpace, Twitter, etc. as long as it is for non-commercial purposes).

You can check on my progress at

Thanks very much!

Thought I'd share this one. Its of my old lease horse, Gidji, who's an Australian warmblood. Dopiest horse you'll ever meet and he just looks to lick people for some strange reason. He's really quirky :) I thought its an interesting picture because of the lighting. If you do use it, it'd be interesting to see how you capture that in just a sketch.

WOOAH! Sorry for the double post, but thats huge. I think if you click on it, it'll come up on tinypic as smaller :) sorry,sorry,sorry,sorry!

^No problem, better huge than tiny. ;) Perhaps if this was just an ordinary "what you think of my drawing/photo/horse/riding/fences/something" topic, it might be a tad big...
Amazing lighting, instantly put me in a mood to paint!
