This is just a horse I saw in a book, and used the photos of him for reference. Done in black and white crayons on coloured paper.

This is me riding Spotlite the Not So Famous Trotter who did one or two races ten years ago but is now more into english dressage and little trail rides in the forest. I made this one without a reference and I'm not entirely happy with it because her neck and head are too big, but I got her expression just right. I want to turn this one into a nice clean ink drawing, but that never happens Grin

And here he is: my favourite horse ever! I made tons of pics of him, but here are three of them plus one my sister made a few years ago (can you tell which one?) The picasso inspired one (#4) was a lot of fun to make, but the one I like best is the one with the two horses looking at the lake. And of course my sister's wonderful #1 happy horse!

skapendee: sure, go ahead and take em I'll just settle for my little sister's style for a while (that's the #1 in the last picture) Grin

ming: the picasso picture makes me feel I should use it for something. a card maybe or make a silk screen out of it, because now it's just lying around.

pinky-rocks: I've never come across a little girl wanting me to draw a lawn mower but I guess I'll have to start practising.. I can do horses and people but when it comes to cars and machines I have a problem.
