What is an Arabian Warmblood?
On the surface, the definition of an Arabian Warmblood is simple: it is the crossing of Arabian and warmblood horses. However, there is far more to this definition as a breed type. First and foremost, the Arabian Warmblood is bred to be a supreme performance animal: known to excel in eventing, hunter and similar disciplines. Functionality is their primary purpose, with the ability to compete on the international stage. In crossing the two breeds with specially selected studs and broods, the aim is to create a light, supple warmblood that combines the grace and presence of Arabians with the scope and athleticism of modern warmbloods.

The initial motivation in the cross was to refine the warmblood type without losing movement, as can often happen in Thoroughbred crosses. Special care is needed when selecting the sire and dam to ensure that the resulting foal is not disadvantaged in other aspects such as scope or height. The Arabian blood should add movement, intelligence and endurance while maintaining a recognisable genetic stamp that is simultaneously and undeniably Arabian.


Breed Type


Head - The head should reflect that of the ideal Arabian: small and refined with a dished to straight profile; convex is not acceptable. The eyes are large, intelligent and wide set. The face should taper to a point with a small muzzle and large nostrils. The jowls should be large, round and wide set to allow for maximum airflow. The ears should be alert; small, delicate and harp shaped, curving inwards to a fine point.

Neck - The neck should be set moderately high on the shoulders and elegantly arched on both mares and stallions, with a pronounced crest particularly on males. An important feature of the AWB is the refined throatlatch, called the mitbah on Arabians; this should still be pliant to allow for air flow during exercise.

Body - The shoulder should have good sloping angles with defined withers. The chest should be deep, with well sprung ribs but compact and not unnecessarily wide. The back is of medium to short length, but should not reach the shortness of most Arabians. The croup should be sloping with a strong hip, a flat croup is highly undesirable. The quarters should be powerful and developed, with the tail carried high in an animated fashion. The overall shape should be rounded and supple, not overly angular. The topline should be level or uphill; downhill is highly undesirable.

Legs - The legs are long and clean, with fine but strong bone. They have springy fetlocks with medium length pasterns, and medium to small hooves.

Height - The smallest minimum height for an Arabian Warmblood to be registered is 15hh, and individuals may be registered up to 18hh.

The gaits should be smooth, elastic and impulsive, with an unhindered, ground-covering stride. The walk should be animated, with an expressive floating trot, rounded eye-catching canter and ideally a clean and scopey jump. Collection should be natural, free flowing and easy to achieve, and the hind end well engaged. Horses should be light and agile on their feet.

An AWB should have a high trainability, with a keen intelligence and penchant for learning quickly. They should respond obediently and sensitively to a rider’s cues and a level-headed disposition is ideal.

The AWB should not contain more than 70% Arabian blood and no less than 12.5% Arabian blood, while adhering to the other breed standards.

Accepted Coat Colours
The AWB in true Arabian and warmblood spirit promotes the more basic colours as the ideal: with blacks, chestnuts, bays and greys  being the most prized competition horses. Horses with these colours and minimal white patterns are eligible for extra studbook merits within the group’s merit system.

Bay (including Seal and Wild)
Smoky Black
Smoky Cream

Dominant White
Splash White

The AWB is a high performance horse, capable of being very competitive on the world stage in dressage, show jumping and eventing. Their natural grace and athletic movement also makes them ideal as mounts in hunters, hacks, polo and stock work.

We had a feature of drawing references yesterday, so let's take a look at textures now. I must admit that I'm a total freak when it comes to this topic. I love textures, I love making them and I love seeing them everywhere. In this feature I'll also include some tutorials, traditional and digital, so you could learn how to make some on your own.

Right, so on to the fun stuff!  Since we all want to start showing our horses as soon as possible only five images are required.  This is supposed to be fun, after all, and we don't want to ask for too much.

1. Groundwork.
2. Lunging.
3. Accepting a saddle/rider.
4. First ride.
5. Final: Discipline training.

While we only require five images, there is so much more that you can do to train your horse!  If you want to go that extra mile, here are five more images that we would love to see!

1. Worst fear discovered.
2. Good/Bad day.
3. Trailer work.
4. Visit from the farrier/vet.
5. Play time.

Note that you are more than welcome to draw your horse training/doing something that we haven't mentioned.

You can show your horse doing anything, as long as it fits into each category.  For instance, when doing your groundwork image you might show a young foal to accept a halter or, if you are working on the lunging image, you could work the horse at walk, trot, canter, or taking a break!  These all count as training images for those of you who have registered your horses in other groups.

The final image is the most important.  We ask that, for the final image, you dress your horse in its competitive gear as it learns about its future discipline for the first time!  For example, for horses destined to be jumpers you might show them trotting over poles, cavaletti, or taking its first jump (note it will probably be a small obstacle, since they will be beginners).

This final image counts as your horse's graduation image and counts as a show entry.  Upon completion of the five base images, they will receive a ribbon, a diploma, be inducted into our graduation hall of fame, and, most importantly, be well on their way to becoming stars!  For those who go above the five images, a secondary ribbon or trophy will be awarded based on how many extra training images you have completed.

reused lines

Note: If you purchase a horse with art from the previous owner art done by any previous owner(s) will not face the .5 deduction. However horses sold from art auctions sales will be eligible for the deduction as they never owned the horse.

To clarifyIf you own the horse, References, import images, foal designs, breeding pictures and art by others of that horse can be used for points.

Uncoloured/ Un-Related Art
All art must be coloured in order to receive points, if it fails to look remotely like the horse it will not count. Markings can be difficult, but they must somewhat resemble the horse you are drawing. Ie. don't draw a black appaloosa with pink spots, or a peacock without its feathers.
Any uncoloured/ Un-related Art will earn +0

Examples of Uncolored Art:
movement of the horse by Wylie

Examples of Colored Art:

:new: March 2012  Mini Shows - CP points reduced

Due to their usually lower quality and the masses of doodle-like headshots.  If they weren't mini show entries, they would only count 0.5 CP mostly and that is unfair to those who put time and effort into normal events and do training pictures. We therefore decided to change the CP that is given for Mini Show Entries and make it depending to the type of entry. High Quality Entries (Quality like a usual show entry) for Mini Shows can be accepted (see exeptional entries)

Mini Shows count for
headshot drawing for mini show: 0,5 CP + 0,5 CP for placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
full body drawing (sketchy, no background, lineart) 1 CP + 0,5 CP for placing 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
exeptional entries (full body, full shading, background): 1,5 CP + 0,5 CP

2011 May: Following Changes:

We want to encourage people to do training exchanges with other stables (stable interaction yay!) So there's a new chance for horses receiving CP:
Training pictures drawn by other peolpe count 0,5 CP each.
The following pictures count as a "training picture":
- full body (= at least 1/2 of the horse is visible) colored pictures of the horse with rider in show jumping, dressage or cross country movements
- full body (= at least 1/2 of the horse is visible) colored pictures of the horse with trainer/handler shown in training situations (trailer training, lunging, groundwork...)
The following pictures don't count:
Head shots
Gift art and competition prizes

Please be aware that we will watch closely if there are cases of "training commission abuse" - it's alright if you commission other people for a training picture, but if a horses' CP are mainly gained through training pics drawn by others, we'll put a stop to that.
Our intention is to encourage you to draw (and interact with other stables), not to "buy" a Finest Blood status by commissioning others for dA points.

2011 January: Following Changes:
- foal CP are limited and bound to competition success of the horse
- EX Racing Thoroughbreds need training and competition pictures to get a Finest Blood
- CP border was raised to 11 CP!!!
- Headshots count is cut to 0,5 CP

NOTE that it is NOT allowed to upload a Finest Blood Ref BEFORE your horse has the 11 CP. Not with 9, not with 10,5. THe border is 11 CP


ALL warmblood horses and thoroughbreds (suitable for refining the breed) that match the three main requirements of the HEWA can be registered as "Premium"-horses.

The three main requirements for a "Premium" Warmblood

1. Has to be a pure warmblood! All ancestors of your horse have to be warmbloods.
No ponies, drafts, gaited horses etc. in your horses pedigree. Link to list of registered HEWA-Breeds:…

2. NATURAL coat colours. Only coat colours have to be suitable for the REAL LIFE breed. Link to list of coat colors:…

3. Age: 3! Your horse cannot be in the registry before it reaches an age of 3 years.

to sum it up again:
Your horse will be registered by the HEWA as a Premium Warmblood or a TB (for refining the breeds) if it meets the following criteria:
Age at least 3 years, natural coat colours within the standards of its REAL LIFE breed, a pure warmblood pedigree.

The creme de la Creme of these horses make it into the  "Finest Blood" registry.

The requirements for a "Finest Blood" Warmblood are:

1. All requirements for a "Premium Warmblood" fulfilled

2. A refurbished H-E-W-A reference sheet. (We will provide examples and a template for it) !!! You need to draw an NEW picture of your horse. It is NOT allowed to use an existing picture!!

3. At least 11 credit points

to sum it up again:
Your horse will be registered by the HEWA as a "Finest Blood" Warmblood or a TB (for refining the breeds) if it meets the following criteria:
Age at least 3 years; natural coat colours within the standards of its REAL LIFE breed; a pure warmblood pedigree.
+ a HEWA reference sheet; at least 9 credit points

The credit Point System</b>

We thought a lot about the whole thing and we believe we established a very good credit point system for the horses, that is not influenced by the artists ability or popularity, but still ensures a high level of quality.

The credit Point System

Your horse gets credit points for certain aspects. To make it to the "Finest Blood Registry" it has to reach at least 11 credit points.

I. Credit Points for Pedigree:
(thought to promote breeding, but not overbreeding)

your horse gets 1 cp for every complete generation in its pedigree.
Only HArpg horses count for pedigree points!
Your horse can get maximum of 3 cp for its pedigree (FB Bonus not included)
A starter gets 0 cp! (A horse with a created pedigree of real horses is considered a starter!)

Finest Blood Bonus: Every Finest Blood horse in the foals Pedigree adds 0,5 CP to the foals CP Account. Your horse can get maximum of 2 CP for the Finest Blood Bonus

II. Credit Points for offspring

For every WARMBLOOD foal your horse gets 0,5 cp.

For example if your horse has 4 warmblood foals, it will get 2 cp ( 4 x 0.5 cp).
Foals with drafts, ponies, gaited horses etc won't count for the credit point system.

If your horse is a Finest Blood Horse and the foal is out of/ sired by another Finest Blood Horse both parents will get 0,5 CP extra for this foal.
Finest Blood Sire X Finest Blood Dam ==> Both FB horses will get 0,5 CP for the foal + 0,5 CP Finest Blood Foal Bonus = 1 CP for a Finest X Finest Foal

ATTENTION: We set up a maximum amount of CP that can be achieved through breeding.
You can get MAXIMUM of 3 CP for breeding foals (= 6 warmblood foals)
ATTENTON: Foal CP will only count for the sum score if your horse proved its quality in an event. THAT MEANS: your horse will only get the foal CP if it has entered and placed (1st,2nd,3rd) in at least one HArpg event (Dressage, Show Jumping or Eventing)!

Example: horse Mary Sue has 3 Warmblood foals (theoretically 1,5 CP) AND placed 3rd in a show jumping event ==> MAry Sue gets 1,5 CP
horse Peter Paul has 6 Warmblood foals (theoretically 3 CP) but has not yet entered in a show jumping event ==> Peter Paul gets NO CP for his foals (if he enters in an event like 2 Months later, his foal CP will be added to his sum score!)

III. Credit Points for Events :new: MINI EVENTS

For a Mini Event (headshot) your horse will get 0,5CP + additional 0,5 if it places 1st, 2nd or 3rd
For a Mini Event (full body, no background, lineart, sketchy) your horse will get 1 CP + additional 0,5 CP if it places 1st, 2nd or 3rd
For a mini Event (usual event quality full body, colored, shaded, background) your horse will get 1,5 CP + 0,5 CP if it places 1st, 2nd or 3rd

For every HArpg Event your horse enters it will get 1,5 cp.
(only counts in combination with an event picture)

For every 1st, 2nd or 3rd place your horse wins in a HArpg Event it will get additional 0,5 cp.
(only counts in combination with an event picture)
A TB can only be accepted as a Finest Blood if he is RETRAINED after his racing career (so you need ONE TRAINING PICTURE) AND he needs to compete in the disciple he is trained for (so you need a COMPETITION PICTURE) ==> YOU NEED BOTH!!! TRAINING AND NEW COMPETITION PICTURE

IV. Credit Points for Pictures

For every full body picture besides reference, breeding pictures and event entries your horse will get 1 cp.
:new: breeding pictures, reference picture 0 CP
:new: HEADSHOTS count for 0,5CP
:new: Training pictures drawn by others count 0,5 CP
The following pictures count as a "training picture":
- full body (= at least 1/2 of the horse is visible) colored pictures of the horse with rider in show jumping, dressage or cross country movements
- full body (= at least 1/2 of the horse is visible) colored pictures of the horse with trainer/handler shown in training situations (trailer training, lunging, groundwork...)
The following pictures don't count:
Head shots
Gift art and competition prizes

V. Credit Points for HEWA events.

For winning HEWA events and performance tests your horse will get credit points.
We will announce the amount of points given for an event, once the events start.

VI. Selling Horses: Transferability of Credit Points.

If you are selling your horse, these CP will be FULLY transferred: Pedigree, Foal Points
The following CP will be cut half ( CP/2 ) : pictures, events

ONCE AGAIN: the credit point system with an example


Horse: Eddie

Eddie's Pedigree
Sire: John . Dam: Sue ( Sue is Finest Blood)
= complete generation (parents) 1 cp

Sire's sire: Bob . Sire's Dam: Daisy  
Dam's sire: Tom (Tom is Finest Blood) . Dam's dam: Mary
= complete generation (grandparents) 1 cp

= PLUS 2 x 0,5 CP = 1 CP for Finest Blood horses in the pedigree!
== 3 cp

==>2 cp for Pedigree

Eddie's offspring
Linda (warmblood x warmblood) == warmblood foal 0,5 cp
Timothy (warmblood x pony breed) == 0 cp
Duncan (warmblood x thoroughbred) warmblood foal 0,5 cp
Lissy (Warmblood X gaited) == 0 cp
Tobey (Warmblood x draft) == 0 cp

==>1 cp for warmblood foals since he has placed in XYZ event ==> 1 CP count

Eddie's Show Events:
EDS event (12th place) == HArpg event picture 1,5 cp
DLS event (5th place) == HArpg event picture 1,5 cp
XYZ event (1st place) == HArpg event picture + placed == 2 cp
:new: SME Mini Show (1st place/ headshot) == 0,5 CP + placed == 1 CP
:new: SOE Mini Show (sketchy/unshaded, full body) == 1 CP + placed == 1,5 CP
:new: SAE Mini Show (full body, background, shaded) == 1,5 CP + placed == 2 CP

==>9,5 cp for event entries

Eddie's Pictures (besides event pictures, breeding pictures or reference):
grazing on the pasture == 1 cp
training in the riding hall == 1 cp

==>2 cp for additional pictures

3cp + 1cp + 9,5cp + 2cp == 15,5 cp

93. Draw character-interaction, preferably something you don't usually do (like if you normally do "boylove" then hetero-pairings would be a nice change? same applies to people who always draw girls and boys together.) also if you usually do erotica, try friendship, and if you've never tried anything steamy, now's the chance.

99. Pick one of your old, old drawings, and redraw it.
100. Congratulate yourself for a work well done and do an appropriate image of CELEBRATION. This is obviously the final task. I hope you had fun. :)

Photography Weekly: Edition Forty One

Fri Sep 28, 2012, 12:09 PM

Photography Weekly Header created by TouchedD

"Have no fear of perfection - You'll never reach it! "
~Salvador Dali"

Have you studied Photography? I'm intrigued to know whether or not a qualification in Photography has made you a better, or indeed a worse photographer. Or has there been no change? This week, The Photography Blog asks whether or not a Photography Degree is worth the paper it's written on. Graduation in any field these days doesn't mean that you'll immediately get a job in your desired area. Not these days. So is it worth embarking on study related to photography when in the end, you could get to the same place without the paper stating what you are capable of? Photography is one of a small number of job areas where what you've done speaks higher volumes than whether or not you're qualified . But by that same token, what is qualified in the art world?
