Because this was so what I would have drawn if I could have drawn when I was eleven.

This is my first attempt at drawing a horse in at least 20 years. Proof that we never really grow up, even if we think we do.

Graphite on paper.

Haha I love your description--horses were the first thing I ever drew, and 30 yrs later I still love them! Great job!

I really like your shading and the way you did the grass =)

Thank you! I'm not entirely happy with the grass -- I was trying a new technique and mostly flailed on it -- but I'm glad it's not too dreadful.

Thanks! My inner 11-year-old wanted not just any old horse, but a *pretty* one. : :
