Breaking Free by Celvaya Breaking Free by Celvaya
I know this isn't really the kind of quality you guys are used to seeing from me :blushes: It's been about 6 months since I've last drawn something, and this one hasbeen lying around for almost as long.. I had a lot of stuff on my mind lately, but I thought it was about time to finish this one :)
I think I just needed to get used to drawing again, the next one will be better ;P

No matter how long it took, this lovely. :love: The horse has such perfected anatomy, and that in combination with the deep, contrasted shading and lively focus makes it look like it's galloping right off the page.

Darnit, computers are horrible :noes: :XD:
Anyway, what I wanted to say was:
Haha, thanks! :hug: Gosh yeah, it's been quite a long time :o We've been having some family trouble since new year's, I didn't realise how long it's been since I've last drawn something until I saw the date of my latest submission :faint:

You can ignore that last reply hehe :XD:

ah, well I sure hope it'll get better - just so you'd be able to spend all the more time here on DA or in front of a piece of paper!;)
Nah, but seriously, I Hope those family problems will go aways soon enough.:hug:

:XD: Oh, kom nou. Het is nog steeds tien keer beter dan wat 90% van de bevolking ervan kan maken.

Maar ja, het is wel waar dat als je een tijdje niet getekend hebt, je er weer even in moet komen. Hoe gaat het verder, met de studie en alles?

Oeh, nou studie gaat best goed eigenlijk :) Ik haal al mn vakken in ieder geval. Das diergeneeskunde, super druk maar ook super veel feesten enzo haha :XD: En hoe gaat alles bij jullie? Er was wel veel ellende de laatste tijd geloof ik toch? :o

:) Hoezee! Da's goed om te horen. :D

Euh, bedoel je hoe het gaat met de studie? Ik heb geen idee, ik ben er zowat een jaar niet meer geweest. :XD:

Ethelle Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2010
XD Gheheh, sorry. Ja, het gaat wel goed, denk ik. Mijn vader heeft geen rare aanvallen meer gehad, in ieder geval niet voor zover ze mij dat verteld hebben. Nog maar 8 dagen te gaan, en dan krijgen me misschien wat te horen. Oh, en ons paps heeft gelukkig toch besloten nog even niet door te gaan met werken, dus hij zit veilig thuis. Dat is wel een opluchting. Maar ja, verder weten we dus nog niet echt veel.

Oh gelukkig maar! Ik hoop dat het goed nieuws wordt, het is in ieder geval goed dat hij rustig aan doet inderdaad :nod: Het zou in ieder geval ook al fijn zijn om te horen wat er nou eigenlijk aan de hand is, onzekerheid is helemaal vervelend lijkt me :o

You know, Celvaya? This picture is amazing. You're just ... I dunno, so, so talented at drawing! It'd be really nice of you to critique some of my art for me.

That horses anatomy, shading, all the muscles and stuff ... well, they look perfect! This is a great picture ... one thing I can say is there isn't much fur detail, but fur on horses ... it just takes so much time, and your picture still looks amazing anyways. :wow:

:iconcelvaya:
Celvaya Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Aww, thanks hon! :hug: I noticed it lacked a bit of detail in the fur as well, yeah :nod: I think that might be partly dure to my lack of patience haha :lol: I've been working on a somewhat larger scale for a few days since drawing this one, so I think the next one will have more detail :dance: I'm back in the saddle again (so to speak :lol:)

This one you made now is already good enough to me. :nod: But I guess I can tell in some pictures you do better. This one is great!

Thanks!! :hug: :rose: I know for sure the next one will be better, I finished about half of it and I'm actually quite happy with it :D I guess it was a bit difficult to start drawing again after such a long time, but I'm all used to it again :D

Your welcome. Yes, well I am sure you can do better, but practice from a brake does help.

Celvaya Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Definitely, I just about finished a second drawing, and it's already better than the last one :nod: I just needed to get used to drawing again I guess :D
Reply
:iconmuircat:
Muircat Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010   General Artist
Yep! :D I'm fine with it, although I need lots more practice to have good art, esapecially as good as yours.
Reply
:iconcelvaya:
Celvaya Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Aww, well I must say practice does help a lot :nod: I find that the more drawings I make, the more I improve on some areas :D I don't spend too long on each drawing, and I try to draw a lot of pictures (partly because of my lack of patience of course haha :XD:) That's so great about dA I think, that you can look back on your older work, and see you've improved. I just looked at the first horse I've ever drawn in my gallery :faint: that one looks a bit odd haha :XD:
Reply
:iconmuircat:
Muircat Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2010   General Artist
Yes, it does. :) It helps me too, but not all the time sometimes I just can't draw things and with other things I can. :( Yes, for me sometimes I do a little practice at a time, or a lot. Yes, because if I look at my first ones I can tell I improved a lot since then I think, but I also might delete that deviation that I'm thinking of, because it is horrible. :( Ah, well. Atleast if I'm better now then I can do better. :D

:iconcelvaya:
Celvaya Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha, no don't delete it! :poke: That makes other people see how much you've improved as well :aww: It shows how much you've grown as an artist :nod: Only think about it, how good you'll become if you keep on growing as much! That's always a nice thought :D
