The Horse by ered The Horse by ered
Here's the Horse. Again, from the Chinese Zodiac - you can find the other finished pieces (snake and rooster) in my gallery (I'm too lazy to link them =P ).

Not much to say. Hand was a pain in the ass as usual, as well as the pose. The cloudy smoke horse on the background makes it clear that I haven't drawn horses in a while ^^;

Heh, when I was a kid I (like probably alot of other girls too - I'm not so sure on how boys like horses) I drew nothing but horses. I made my first attempts at capturing the human form when I was about 12 or so. So yeah, horse is probably one of the only animals I actually can draw without a reference. Birds are especially tricky. Wings are easy enough (well, I can make them look like they're supposed to be wings and that's good enough for me) but I just can't figure out where the legs are supposed to go..

Again, too many hours, Wacom Graphire tablet and Photoshop7.

hmm, I like it:) Do you really want the critique? Ok...the trousers are unshaded *gasp* and the head looks a tad small:)

Funny, I thought I had already answered this :?

But yeah, sure I want critique :)
When I'm working on a piece I tend to go a bit blind to it's fault so it helps if other people tell me whats wrong with it =P

And for the shading, I'm desperately trying to call my too-lazy-to-put-higlights-on-black a style instead of just laziness :(

Great job. The horse in the clouds looks really good.

I used to obsessivly collect horses in kindergarten-4th grade or so, still got a few boxes of them. Oddly enough I'm terrified of horses.:o

Yup, I've got boxes of toy horses too - well, actually they are at my mom's place and I'm not sure if she still has them.. And yeah, I like horses, but I also like to keep a little distance to them. Unless it's a really, really tame horse :D

I really like this one, it's not as dark as some of your others are at times, it has a very nice cloud like floaty feeling I guess to it. That makes it very neat, a nice turn in a different direction. Wouldn't mind seeing a few more like this.

Keep up the cool work, Cheers.

Heh, it's nice to paint something a bit more colorful every now and then - I know that my work tends to get a bit gloomy ^^;
