Draft Horse WIP 5

07 May

At last, I have an update to share.  This horse is slow going…the progress you see here is the result of two or three sittings, and most of my sittings last a couple of hours.  There is so much to pay attention to in this piece…I need to constantly be checking over the whole drawing to make sure all the straps are lining up correctly, and of course, the horse needs some attention, as well. 🙂

Here is where the horse is at this point.  Most of the head is in place at last.  I’ve added the ear and the jawline, and have also filled in the cheek area a little more.

Thanks for looking!  I’m always happy to get a little feedback, so feel free to leave a comment. 🙂

    I really like the straps, the details are amazing on them, I can feel the leather.
    It’s going to be another masterpiece !

      When I look at your drawings they look so real, with this one when I look at it I can hear the typical sounds of horses and I can feel the sensation on my hand when I pet them.

        Thank you, Jocelyne. Your comments are so kind. I appreciate it. 🙂 It is great to hear that the leather looks right…I’ve been guessing on what kind of texture to use for it. Thanks again!
