Since I just started up with drawing horses again, I thought I should make a journal to post updates. I love feedback so feel free to give any suggestions or critique.
For some background, when I was a kid I always wanted to be an artist, and being a "horse crazy" girl, horses were one of the first things I tried to draw. I've never been lucky enough to own a horse, but I still love riding and they're still by far my favorite subject to draw.
Here are a couple drawings from when I was 14
and on to one of my more recent drawings when I was 18
I've gotten a little out of practice lately so posting a journal and looking through everyone else's beautiful work will hopefully keep me motivated to be more productive. :) I'll be posting some pictures of my works in progress soon!
Boy, I have to say you definitely have talent there! :D
Double, because you are not only able to capture the horses beautifully, but also people!
Can't wait to see more from you....
I just went and looked through your Album....
I love the way you are able to capture the beautiful sheen in the horses coats!
Really, really gorgeous stuff there!
Thank you! :) I usually look for a reference with lots of highlights and shadows so that's why my drawings come out that way. For some reason a lot of my drawings also end up being stallions facing to the right... I have no idea why, lol.
That's funny, when I draw horses, or any animal, mine tend to always face to the left.....
Are you left handed by chance? (I'm right)
That's strange, lol, I'm right handed too. Although for some reason when I first started learning to draw horses I practiced with more facing right so I'm still a little better drawing horses facing right than left. XD
Well, I guess that blows my theory out'a the water then.....
I guess it might just be what you get used to when you first start drawing? Or it could be partly from chance that I pick references that often face right. Oh well, lol.
Eh, either way you are very talented!
XD Sorry about the random tangent, lol. I'd love to see some of your drawings sometime. :)
