Re: native america

Greeting from the USA

Very nice! I like the concept of combining 3 elements into one scene...the natural scenery, the Native American shield and the pinto with rider! The eagle on the shield says NA as well. Good job!
I find it intersting that you have this much knowledge of the NAs. Are you maybe, from the US? Or did you have resources and studies of our native peoples?

Re: native america

I like the idea...and the comp looks good to me! The proportions of the horse are off, and the way the rider is sitting, looks like a toy...where his real legs would mold with the horse? I think I would loose the bird, and I am not sure what is around his waist? The fringe on his top makes it look as tho' he has two hands? I think with a number of tweaks this can really be good! I would start with the horse...if it was me. The others are really small.

Please post whatever you decide to do! Will look forward to your finish!!

Re: native america

Hi Irene Ann!!
Great attempt at this!! I think Susan has some valid points.
The horse first of all, his forelegs, the left one looks like its in the distance and the right one is up front, which is backwords. the horses right legs are behind the body so lowerleg will be in shadow and the one on the left is prob going to be in the shadow too from the riders leg. but not behind his belly. or chest. The hind legs are too wide, almost looks like a cow thigh, need to thin it down some and separate the legs with shadows showing the space between the legs. search out some horse photos to see what I mean.
GOOD LUCK, your doing pretty good!!
