    Hi there,

    Looking good mate. I really like the paintings and sketches of the horses.

    anyways i brought this book, "The Art of Animal Drawing by Ken Hultgren", some time back from amazon, seems really useful but couldn't go through it yet. You may want to give it a try, since you are into painting animals.

    Try this one as well. You might find it useful. Took some time to load this though.

    Keep up the good work and best of luck.

    Hey thanks so much - loved that Scribd link, I'm speed reading through it now! Seriously helpful! Thanks again!

    Todays weirdness is an ink witch and pencil centaur.

    I plan to do some serious expressions and studies soon - feel like technique is getting there, but shapes and proportions are needing work.

    I'm really liking the way you're defining the structure of the horses' faces, and their muscles, especially in the pencil drawings in your first post. The people are coming along well too.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your work, it's always so nice and lively.

    wow your horse works are really amazing
    It's very good that you set up a clear goal for yourself and know where you have to improve. I guess in order to get there i would focus on a lot of different studies (bridgman, hogarth, loomis, etc) and draw from life.
    Your portrait still have some anatomy issues but i really love the technique you're using, they're looking really good so far
    Keep up the great work

    Thanks Lav :] Studies and practice are certainly on the improvement plan, as well as anatomy lessons, but mostly practice.
    Never shown more than when I try and carry out a concept and my basic grounding is the thing letting me down as in here, where I digitalised that pencil centaur in attempting to do a character of the week design


    the idea was my muse, a blend of what inspires me, classical natural fantasy (part-horse centaur aspect) and urban political styles.
    Think I rushed a bit though, but at least I got it done.

    Also a dragon cause photoshop was open, tablet was out, and I always feel its a waste of paper drawing dragons traditionally because my dragons really suck. I love them though (I even think I caught sight of one the other day, plus there's one on my national flag) so I must get in some practice and maybe work up to some real paintings. Definitely an aspect of fantasy art it'd be helpful for me to master. Hopefully my dinosaur obsession when I was five will be useful grounding here, lol.

    Til next time!

    The thing with dragons is its tough to do studies from life haha. I am doing imagination based studies though.

    The question is how to make the studies/sketches link in with the kind of stuff I'm trying to illustrate/convey... Argh! but that can be a question for another day.

    Some quick imagination-based environments and a croc study in aid of improving my dragons.

    Last day off horses, tomorrow I'm going to get some canvasses done ready for new year craft fairs... but hoping to do some more digital too, maybe enter the horsemen of the apocalypse CHOW, right up my street ha ha.

    Another pencil dragon, a unicorn cityscape, sketches for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse chow, and a moon priestess that I did for the Winter Solstice.

    Meant to do more studies and horse sketches, they just kept turning into other stuff. More scanning to do tomorrow
