Mahogany by pallanoph Mahogany by pallanoph
Just a generic headshot of a horse, nothing to see here! It was intended to be a quick doodle, but evolved into a mini painting. It's going to be a gift for a friend's mom. :)

Warp tool is my friend. However, I ought to be mocked until I learn proper lighting techniques, though it would probably help if I used reference photos instead of relying on my own memory. :XD:

I should be working on other things. What else is new?

Derwent's watersoluble graphitint pencils and watercolor on Stonehenge paper. Fullview is close to original size.

Comments, questions, and critiques are welcome, as always.

Art April Schumacher. Please do not repost or use for your own profit. Thank you.

This looks almost perfectly like my mental image of Flame in Walter Farley's Island Stallion. Beautiful!

That's uh... pretty good for relying off your memory! I could draw the head shape but that's about it. All the muscles and the expression looks great! :clap:

I think I've spend well over half of my life drawing horses, so it's good to know I still have some residual memory of their anatomy. Still, I should reference more often. :D

Thanks! :)

L'oreal... Because you're worth it :XD: I like the colours you used for the shadowing and the mane is wonderfully flowy <3

Haha, that exact thought did cross my mind once I got to the mane. :rofl: Great minds think alike, right? :lol:

Beautiful colours and shading/muscle definition! I love the slight purple hinge to it too ;) Nice work!

Thanks! Silly as it sounds, I don't use purple in shadows nearly as often as I could. Maybe this will encourage me to do it more often. :D
