    Lady Horsepower

    This is being painted on a hubcap which is a tad awkward. The horses legs are being a pain. Its my project for the weekend to get it at least 80% done. Any and all critique and advice more than welcome.

    They don't have to be realistic as it's surreal. If it was me, I'd make the legs long and spindly. Play if cool and call it 'your style'. Normally you'd get eaten alive for that here, but you have a mountain to climb. That's a shit surface to paint on.

    Thanks for the idea, I am going for sort of stylized semi-realistic so far but I will see how it goes. Currently struggling with composition, thinking of adding one or two more horses

    The conceit here is that the grey horse is fuel, the yellow horse is spark, and lady horsepower represents the combustion engine. I've got it about as far as I expected this weekend. Hopefully I can finish it on new years. Any input and suggestions appreciated.

    I am obviously not a minimalist but would value any input on how to make this cohesive and not too muddled
