This looks like a Magic card, hehe. i love pictures like this. Simple, yet full of character and not stimpy on the details. The mean look on the horse is a nice touch.

Gave stijl, maar... Huuuu, die vent zit op de kont van z'n paard, als ik dawt paard was zou ik hard gaan bokken. Een ruiter hoort zeg maar daar te zitten waar de manen ophouden.

this is essentially a well drawn picture. The men and the back ground are drawn very well. it's just your horses that let you down. It looks to me as if they've just stopped walking, and if that is the case, then your horses are stood a little too 'square' as in, all legs together and parallel to one another. ( I've owned horses for years, so speaking from experience, heres what i think you should be aware of) The left foreleg wants to move forwards a tad and the rear right back a bit. it's a more natural posisiton. The hooves on the forelegs are a little too small, but the rest of those legs is fine. i don't know if you did it on purpose, but the man is sat too far back on the horse, he'd be squashing the poor thing's kidneys if he rode all day like that! the girth and saddle therefore should be further forward, the girth passing under the horse just behind it's forelegs. the back legs should be a little bit thicker than the forelegs,espeshially at the top, and unless your horse hasn't been fed in a while, it's bum should be bigger and rounder. both the men are holding the reins wrong. I know I'm being horribly picky, but I hate to see good talent and a good drawing spoilt by a lack of knowledge of anatomy. I'm not trying to come down on you or anything, I'm just trying to give you useful bits of information for future reference. Hope it helps. ^^ x

Okay, thank you for the suggestions on drawing better horses, I used these and a lot of photos to practice horse-drawing. After that I felt ready to make a better variant of the Light Cavalry; it should be up in a few days.
hmm. seems the moderators have a little vacation, so I can't publish it, you can find it on my own homepage though.

I saw the other pic on your homepage... Wow, what a difference! I can see a huge improvement in the horse and rider poses, and the new image is much more dynamic than this one. Seeing the two pics side by side shows how far you progress with practice and can be an inspiration for a struggling artist.

This is a nice picture, however, i don't want to be mean, but i think that you should work a little more on drawing horses.

I agree with everyone else the horse needs work. Gerwin Broers
replies: "OK, you where all so right, really, so that older horse drawing has been replaced with the one you currently see. hope I did better."

The horses are great don't change anything! and the saddle doesn't need a saddle horn. What a awesome picture.
