New Blog Header

Running Horses
You may have noticed that I have a new Blog header. This morning I decided that my old header was just a little out of season. I also felt like drawing some horses. I ran a google search on horses to get ideas on perspective and angles for the three horses.

I drew them with a pencil first onto scratch paper, then I inked the image on a new sheet of paper using my light table...then I didn't have to erase. So, I sketched out the following illustration using a 0.05mm Gray Multiliner and a 0.05mm Sepia multiliner. Then I started coloring. Tomorrow I will post a tutorial with the steps I took in coloring the horses and markers.

Have a great day!

The horses look wonderful and miniature lifelike almost as if one is jumping out to take a bite out of the marker.

HORSES... I've been wanting you do to some Horses.... You heard my heart... I was up in Coos Bay at Memories of Time, some time ago with Kisa and Joy... They were talking about stamp sets.. as I was coloring (with my copics) I looked up and said... I just want a real horse... What?? no.. I just want a real horse stamp set... not cute, not funny, but a real horse stamp set...

Your horses are Wonderful!! Please a stamp set... Pretty Please....

OMG - your header is spectacular. The gray horse is just stunning. I think horses are one of the most difficult animals to "get right" and yours look pretty darn perfect to me!
