Sundragon by AmandaDrage Sundragon by AmandaDrage
This is CW River of Gold, a dunskin overo stallion owned by Kim Stambaugh. You can see his Facebook fan page here: [link]
This is also where the reference photo came from. Used with kind permission from Kim. [link]

I was intending to add ears at the top, and I actually did, but I decided it looks better cropped, as in the ref photo - it has a bit of impact. And this way it ties in with my series of horses with odd crops and block-colour backgrounds. (See also Untitled, Warmblood, Cortana, as well as Arnie, and a Friesian on a turquoise background, who are both still in progress.)

Derwent Drawing soft coloured pencils and pastels on A3 coloured velour paper.
