*first comment dance.* A. Thomason
replies: "Thanks! I like him too, he turned out cute. Now I have to make a 'strong' and 'handsome' shadowfax, since 'cute' just didn't suit my idea of him "

Hey your only 17?? Im 15 I love to draw horses also.I was wondering do you have any tips like, did you use a refrence or did you do it by memory because I cant seem to draw from memory.Also how do you get the shading to look so accurate on the horse, did you just take a pencil and sort of scratch at an angle to get shading? There is just a few things I want to know that nobody has answered. And also you draw beautiful horses thanks for drawing these for beginner drawers like me. A. Thomason
replies: "Yup, I'm 17. It took a long time before I was able to draw without using a reference, and my art still looks better when I do have one. Slowly you'll be able to pick up more on the muscle placement after you've drawn a lot while looking at photos, and then put it together in your own artwork. Personally I have been using a paper blending stump, and layering pencil before blending it with the blender to give it a smooth look. This will wear down your paper, though, so make sure to use thicker-than computer paper while using a blending stump (to prevent the paper from falling apart). Then you can use an eraser to pick out the highlights (that's my fave part . Thanks for the comments and good luck!"

Nice, but the head is a bit big A. Thomason
replies: "Hence the 'pony' look? I think his head may be a bit too big for a horse, but I don't think his head is too big for a pony (although the bluntness and shape of his head makes it look bigger). I may be wrong, though. Thanks for commenting!"
