The shading on this is amazing, not just darks and lights but you can tell the sun / light source is at a high angle. Are those markings on his head and face specific, they look sort of like those paintings by those Indians in the American Southwest. A. Thomason
replies: "Thank you! The lady we got our horse from a couple years back had a young stallion she was selling, he was sooo gorgeous. He was dark bay with bright blue eyes and a crooked white blaze. This is practically him, with a few alterations The markings on his forehead are not super specific, although I was thinking of making the number of diamonds mean something later on (making up reasons for everything can be exhausting! lol...). However, the center of the forehead where the whirl is, is generally where their horns are located in their unicorn state."

replies: "Lol!... oh wait, I mean... no lol... Thank you! I don’t just draw like this all the time though, I get about one of these a year and they take quite a while to complete. Then I just get all of the other random filler drawings in between ^^"

|28 Sep 2008|| Robyn *Copperhead* Lee|I think he looks amazing. And I love the designs in his coat...especially where the big muscle runs in his neck, and along his face. Don’t know if you meant that when you were shading and all, but it really adds to it. And he looks very wise...I’ve been drawing for years, and have NEVER had this good of images...........I have a lot of trouble with shading. I think that’s why most of mine always have more of a cartoony look to them. A. Thomason
replies: "Thank you! Most of those muscles were painstakingly placed, though some of the shading was just random luck XD My first problem was getting the proportions and shapes right; after that, I had to work on shading. It’s not easy, but after working at it for a while something just ’clicked’, and now shading is a breeze. Detail work, that’s a different story... that and proportions are what I am still working on. You probably saw it already on DA, but I have a graphite shading tutorial there if you’re interested. Thank you for commenting! "
