Next equine elegance! This is now my quickest piece. Four hours. I started sketching in church and finished Sunday night! Then I had scanner issues and no internet connection, so you couldn't see it then.
I don't think it's my best so far, unfortunately. I've already sprayed it with fixative, but I might actually do some more defining on it. The back leg is really bugging me but I can't pinpoint what's wrong.
By the way, the reference photo was super grainy. That's the biggest reason for the lack of detail, in case you were curious. But i love the pose and I love how the feathering on the front feet came out. And the paint coat was actually pretty fun to do!
Obviously, I am immensely enjoying creating these pieces! They are great practice, especially from a different and more challenging viewpoint. It is also rather fun going back to just pencil and creating a 3-D looking image without any color. If you have a picture you think would fit well in this series, send me a link!
If you're interested in purchasing this, I'll sell it cheaper than my other pieces. The reason is that the fixative left some splattering on the image. It's not horrible, not really. But it kinda bugs me. But I didn't touch any of that up before uploading this (even though it's low-res). Just note me for more details.
