So I bravely or foolishly decided to draw the lovely @SilkyRaven world of Warcraft character on a horse. I like the challenge of doing new things and I have not attempted to do a horse before (a goat is as close as I got). Horses it turns out are great learning tools (which means endless frustrations) because they don’t conform to how my eyes try and see them.
I think this is always the case with some objects that are so familiar but that you have never broken down into finer details of lines, forms, bones and muscles. With humans its a little easier as I can people watch most days and look at how lips, eyes, bones interconnect but I don’t have a horse in the back yard to hang out with sadly.
Anyway its been a lot of fun, plenty of stop starts and plenty more effort to get it close.
Below is the current evolution of the drawing
So far its progressing okish – learning heaps which is great.
Will continue to slowly fill out the details, refine and correct and post as I go.
Then I might turn it into a line art 😀
And the final picture below!
