Since i REALLY am obsessed with art, but more so riding and ANYTHING horse related,i thought i would make a thread where you can post pictures of your horses, post pics of horse drawings, cute quotes about horses, and get in line for pictures i draw :)
You can get a felt-tip pen drawing, or a regular pencil drawing. If you want shading, let me know.
As for me, I have ridden many, many horses. My favorite horse ever was an American Quarter Horse colt, who had the greatest bond with me. I took care of him and rode him for an elderly lady, but recently we had to put him down because he fell in his stall and couldn't get up.
He was a rescue, so he was estimated at anywhere between 25-30 yrs of age. His teeth showed he was older than 25 though. After setting up a shadow box for him, i felt the need to help other horses at my stables who do not receive much care, or their owners are not there often. One particular horse, a German Warmblood Hanoverian (he is about 18 hands), stood out to me. He seemed to always be alone, and everybody didn't really like him because he always seemed cranky and dangerous. After bonding with him for a while, (2 weeks) he seems to have taken a liking to me, and really, he is a gentle giant. He does get cranky though, especially around other horses. He was a big-buck jumper in his day, and now he enjoys retirement in his big and cozy stall :) he is around 25 yrs, but has a bad foot problem that makes him uncomfortable to ride. I ride western BTW>
Again, these are FREE, but they make take some time(couple of days) to complete.
List so far:
My favorite breed of horses are the big, massive ones, particularly Clydesdales. :)
I also like Friesians though :)
A quick (10-20 min) felt-tip pen drawing, you can expect your piece to look something like this:
