Akuinnen's Artworks
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)

Akuinnen24 02-24-2011 08:26 PM

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.....

Akuinnen24 02-24-2011 09:16 PM

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.

SpiritedLittleCopperSpots 02-24-2011 09:19 PM

Eh, either way you are very talented!

Akuinnen24 02-24-2011 09:53 PM

XD Sorry about the random tangent, lol. I'd love to see some of your drawings sometime. :)
