Friesian Duchess

This one took awhile to make! Did another pencil black and white drawing. 

This one I edited to make it look darker, I didn't actually draw it darker. I wanted to what it would look like. I really like it this way!

Horse Sketch

No steps for this one. Black and white pencil sketch in about 15-20 mins. This turned out way better then I thought! I was spending all day with my best friends and not getting a good drawing in for a few days really made a difference. When I'm in my best mood and itching to get something in my hand to draw with. 

Cowboy Trainer

I took had a lot more pictures here to show my progress. 
This first one I just sketched the out what I wanted. I did clean up most of the extra lines.


Here I am focusing only on the horse. I drew the lighter color to show the lighter spots and bring out the muscles a little more.


Than I filled in the other places with a darker color.


With an Airbrush I lightened and darkened places to bring it out more. 


I drew hair lines on the body to cover the colors a little more and added a rough sketch hair for the mane and tail.


What I should of done with the mane and tail is start with a dark gray instead of a solid black. If I did that I could darken places. I did shine it up and added strands of thiner hair. 


Now I'm starting on the cowboy. I filled in his pants with a solid color like I did with the horse's body. Than I added darker colors, shadows and wrinkles in his pants where his legs bend. His shirt I started with the solid color and drew shadows. After that I drew in the checkered lines, making sure I drew them to flow with the angles.


His hat I did the same. This time I did not make the mistake to start with the darkest/lightest color with his hat like I did with the horse's mane and tail. The starting solid color was a light gray and than the shadows and lighting. 


Here is the finished!

I did draw for the background with the light in the middle and darker on the edges. I added brush strokes for fun effects.

Little Bridge

Here is a lot of steps I did of this painting. This is a little bridge that's also part of my home. It looks really pretty on a sunset but I took the original photo in the afternoon. I made it more green in my painting than it is in the photo because that's what it more or less looks like in spring. Summer everything is unfortunately dead and yellow looking...
