Well At Least No One Got Paint Up Their Nose

oops :p Little bit of a paint explosion. ok so it looks like the can exploded, thankfully it didn't though. (I'm sure one of us would have probably got hit in the head if the can had of blown up)

So I finished the line art for the horse I started the other day. I would love to be able to go to a horse farm and take hundreds (ok probably thousands) of photos of the horses, but because I can't a lot of the time I have to look at stock sites to get some action shots of horses. I have hundreds of photos of horses that we have taken ourselves, but not very many of horses running around. So the photo I used for this I found at DA here :) hmm if I ever can afford a horse I think I would end up spending all my free time drawing it rather then riding lol

Refining the rough lines to give them more shape, so it starts to look more like a horse. His back end looks a little odd as he is kicking and twisting at the same time, which will come across better once it is shaded.

And the line art finished. Shock upon shock, I can draw the full horse, not just the head ;p I would love to actually draw a jousting match with running chargers, add it to the long list of art I need to do lol

The horse is taking shape, nice one!

The flowers on the seat covers, of course! I didn't think of that coz I lived with these chairs so long at my Mum's! Alfie thinks it's mancatly to rise above such things, though he would prefer a tiger or leopard print, perhaps! :)xxx

Your sketch is looking lovely. I love the pose you have given the horse.

Chrissy said...

It is looking great, I find horse to be quite a challenge. Interesting to see how someone else fine tunes ;)

MaryO said...

Your sketch is coming along nicely. I'll be anxious to see him finished. Sorry about the paint spill!

My cat walked across my beige carpet with Pthalo Blue paws once... It is a brutal colour to clean up!

Now jousting would be cool... You can draw, girl!

Jennifer Rose said...

thanks Black Cat :) it does prove one manliness to sit with flower cushions ;)

thanks Serena :)

Thanks Michelle :)

Shashi- I saw the pose and had to draw it, had a lot of energy to it :)

thanks Chrissy :) you horse turned out great, doesn't look like it was a challenge :)

Mary- thank you :) the spill could have been worse, could have ended up looking like a smurf :p

thank you Michelle :D and ouch about the carpet o.0 would have been funny to see the blue paws cat though ;)

Awww... I'm loving how the horse is coming along. But going by your other art work, I never had a doubt you could sketch an entire horse.

So really, what is the blue wall?
