may i ask how you learned to draw horses this perfect? i love to draw them, but i need to learn how to color the horse in like with shading and all that - im okay drawing the outline of the horse and drawing the eye but, coloring the horse in and shading - its impossible for me lol do you know of anything that can help or make a tutorial maybe?

It's hard to explain how I learned to draw like this... I pretty much have been drawing since I could hold a pencil... The trick is to use multiple layers of shading with different rated pencils (hb, b, 2b, 3b, etc). I can maybe put up a series of pictures showing the 'stages' of completion? Would that be helpful? o_O

I've always admired this drawing when I didn't have a deviantART account.

Amazingly done.
I see no flaws whatsoever.
Defiantly in my favorites.

Thank you. ^_^ Dapples are tricky even once you know how to do them. Heh. I usually shade the area where the dapples are going to be darker than what I want the end product to be. Then I'll take a kneed-able (sp) eraser and mold it with several ';points' and dab the drawing for the dapples. *shrugs* You just keep going til you get the desired effect. And if it doesn't turn out the way you'd like you can just shade back over it and try again. It takes a lot of practice til you get the right combination of techniques. x_x

ps- You're Clydesdale drawing's cute ^_^

Thank you! Arab's fascinate me in an artistic aspect. Not so much in the riding/training aspect. >_< I worked pretty hard on this one. I wanted it to be beautiful like the horse in the original photograph. ^_^

It looks like a mare I used to know. She died last summer. But this is amazing.

Oh, I am. ^_^ The photo was originally taken by a well known photographer. I can't remember his name off the top of my head but he did a series of pictures on Arabian horses. A lot of them were among the sand dunes in the middle east. Pretty awsome stuff.
