Eclipse and Dee by AmandaDrage Eclipse and Dee by AmandaDrage
Gypsy horse/paint cross Eclipse and her dam, Miss Drum N Dee. Coloured pencil and pastel on velour paper, 30x40cm, commission work.

This one was a bit of a challenge - scaling and fitting the images the commissioner wanted, and making some sort of composition out of them. I think I did okay with that in the end!
(If you're curious as to how I did it - I sketched the images at a comfortable size on thin drafting paper, measured the sketches, scanned them into Photoshop and printed them out to scale separately, then cut them out and arranged them to fit the velour paper and create the composite image. Transferring the sketches onto the velour was harder... that's a secret for another time :lol:)

Och that is incredibly cute! Really good job on getting all three scenes in on one drawing, I think you did well with getting them all to fit together :) I love the little beard on the portrait and where she's standing on her hind legs, leaning on mum. For some reason that drawing makes them look almost like miniature ponies, though :0 (maybe because of how big Eclipse seems to be in comparison to her mother? dunno)

Thank you :) I get the impression Dee was a small mother. I don't have the ref photo anymore, but I remember thinking it made the foal look huge!

Ah, that would certainly explain - also pretty understandable given she's a paint and Eclipse a mix with a Gypsy horse, who tend to be pretty huge! :)
