blue eyed art journal

In which I never update because I don't actually draw often enough to warrant having one.

My friend (also a member here) provided the reference photo for my current project and I took some err, artistic license to turn her pony into the great big warhorse I need him to be. I'm a writer and tonight I'm taking a break from my writing to draw my main character's horse.

The reference pony is only around 14hh and the horse the drawing is supposed to represent is a 17hh charger. I think I need to draw my character with him to get the scale of this horse across, but that's a project for another day!

Drawn by me, using a pen tablet and photoshop CS6. I'm insulted that you think it's not 100% my work.

Oh my god guys. I finished it.

Screenshot of the flats to show where I normally leave my work. Unfinished - because shading is HARD, yo! And then the finished piece, which I'm unbelievably happy about. File compression from the upload might murder the image quality, but I have to share.

I'm not sure what I was thinking, but I started another one. My wrist is now dead.

Reference photo is by din-estel on deviantart and is a royalty free stock image.

Okay so apparently I'm on a roll today. Finished one and started another... again. I'm shocking.

Horse ref is mentioned in the above post. Human ref for the lady knight was provided to me by the person I'm drawing her for.

I just saw this reply of yours. I think you misunderstood me. what I meant was did you 'digitally' draw it, using a computer program. to me, a tablet and pen in photoshop is what I am talking about. Of course, YOU still hold the pen and YOU still chose the colors. you are still the artist.

I am not so familiar with computer/tablet drawing. I only asked because the line quality of the drawing is a little different from drawn direct on paper.
no need to feel offended, but sorry if my miswording made you feel insulted.
