Draft Horse WIP 9

16 Jun

Well, I can honestly say I’ve been keeping right at this drawing, but the update doesn’t look much different than my last one. 🙂  I estimate that between the last post and this one, I’ve done around 12 hours of work, all spent on that complex and intricate harness.  I am amazed by the detail in horse harnesses and tack.  The loops, straps, buckles, and rings are so beautiful, and so numerous!  It’s amazing to think of the people that invented such a thing!

Anyway, here’s my update.  The metal parts of the harness will really gleam in the end.  I’m purposely leaving them a little unfinished so that the ink “dust” won’t stain them due to my hand rubbing those areas.  Scratchboard is actually rather dusty.  If you cut deeply into the clay, you’ll see dust and bits of clay and ink sift down as you work.

Thank you for looking. 🙂

    Wow wow wow…. you really deal with the texture change so well, you can definitely see the horse hair, leather and metal – each one is very well done.
