Trakehner by AmandaDrage Trakehner by AmandaDrage
A Trakehner stallion. I haven't got my artwork-naming-hat on today, if anyone can think of a good one feel free to suggest!

Many thanks to Viktoria Makarova aka ~Vikarus for the reference image: vikarus.deviantart.com/art/Tra…
A few people commented on the muzzle in the photo - although it's just dilated nostrils and strong shadow and I kind of liked it, I made the decision to crop it and also lessen the lumpy-bumpy effect from the shadow.

Derwent Drawing coloured pencils, Graphitint coloured pencils, and a pastel pencil for the blues. Approx 11x14" on mountboard.

This is beautiful. I think the crop works really well - it really makes you focus more on the horse's intense expression.  Love your detailed highlighting here, too - I feel like I can reach out and touch that horse's fur. :)
