sketchpile by AmandaDrage sketchpile by AmandaDrage
because 'sketchdump' is a horrible word! lol

apologies for the huge ass watermark. can't trust people with anything!

numbers 2 and 5 are to be used a basis for pieces I have planned... a couple I have already used, you might recognise em (these are all from the last few months)

these are sketches... they're not meant to be anatomically perfect. they're practices, mental exercises.

things I know:
bottom middle one, hindlegs are really short
muzzle is weird on number 3
Number 4 is ugly. XD

And I am so jealous of the pegasus, I can never get the proportions right, for me, the legs are impossible :P

Fun!! I love the still gestural flow of these guys. The horse on the bottom right is good times. I look forward to seeing some of these become finished pieces, too, I hope. ;3

The horse eye has very convincing lids to it. :D

I don't know what the bottom right one is even doing, lol. Looks like he might be trotting but who knows.

I love drawing horse eyes, I'm sure I'm not the only one though :D

wow, you obviously have a great knowledge of equine anatomy. can't wait to see some of these in more detail! and there is nothing wrong with watermarks, artists should protect what they work hard on, and there has been way too much art theft around here lately.
Reply
:iconamandadrage:
AmandaDrage Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2008
well it's getting better but I still guess a lot of it! The area between cheek and chin always gets me.
It's sad and I feel a bit of an ass having to watermark sketches but there HAS been a lot of theft around lately and the last thing I'd want would be for someone to take a basis of my own and work something out of it and make out it's their own work. I've only ever had anything of mine stolen a couple of times but that's plenty enough for me!

my hindlegs always looks like crap.. yours, short or not (I think they're just fine), are great! :)

well funnily enough I've always had problems with hindlegs, only very recently have I started to get a better understanding of how they are made up lol. They still come out 'broken' sometimes though!
