Appaloosa

The animal and wildlife forum concentrates on drawings of all animals, from domestic pets to wildlife - anything dressed in fur, feathers or scales. The emphasis is on drawing but paintings are also acceptable.

Appaloosa

Started on this Appaloosa. Haven't drawn much for animal's so the hair will be tricky. Trying the indenting method. Already learning from mistakes, one way to learn I guess.

Well, you're off to a great start! It looks like it's going to be an interesting pose. Are you doing a portrait or will you draw the whole horse?

It's very nice pose of the horse head, giving a lot of "horse-power" expression.
I love to see what you end up with later on, whether you'll decide to keep it as it is or you'll draw a full body ;)
I assume you've started this drawing on larger sheet size, so you free to decide whatever option you'll choose?
I've been adviced many times to always start my drawings on larger sheet, to not to block myself if I change my mind ;)
It's very good looking drawing ...

Great update. This is going to be a strong piece (by that I mean that I'm already sensing strength and power in the horse's face). Looking forward to seeing where you take this.

Trying Bev's dramatic horse idea but with charcoal.

It will be very dramatic with the dark background. May I ask what paper you're using and what size the drawing will be?

Great update! Love how powerful the neck looks, and the way you're showing the horse's breath.
