What a wonderful picture! You've captured the 'comfortableness', if I can call it that , between rider & horse...which is not always apparent. And added colour too! :clap:

Wonderful! :clap: Makes me miss my horse and showing so much! I really need to go dig up the first one you did so I can refresh my memory as to how you do these, you're inspiring me to take a shot at colour. (Something that makes me very nervous! lol) There is a beautiful, unique softness to these...
I do think her helmet is off a touch, just that there's a bit too much on the left. (Her right) Of course, it's not a big deal, and you probobly have it right on with the reference photo, but not having the reference photo it's something I see.
Can't wait to see your next one. :D

Thanks Depat. Comfortableness sounds fine to me :p
Tentative. Thanks! I took another look and you are so right!
Looks like she has the helmet nearly sideways :eek:

This is so beautiful. Horses would be great to draw (I'll have to try it sometime). You've done a great job and the colors are just gorgeous!

well done! that picture is stunning! I was wondering if you just used colour pencils? and when you started the lighting and shading on the face, did you start with a light colour then layer or how did you achieve it? I am trying to perfect my horse drawing skills so sorry about all the questions :)

Eeek... I hope I didn't go too far saying so... :( I've just been inspired by the recent "Critique" thread to say what I see... As I said, I don't really think it's a big deal. I think this work is absolutely beautiful! :clap:

Tentative..... I appreciate the comments. I always forget to put "c&c welcome" but that is why I'm posting them here. Thankyou! :)
horsecrazycourts... The colour thing is very new to me. My last 3 threads have been decribing my exploration (and excitment) of brushing pastel dust onto the graphite drawing. I'm loving it! I only have a 12 piece set at this point so I think I'll have to go out and invest in a larger range. :D
