that is truly amazing ive been riding horses since i was 18 months old and im so sorry but her(?) fetlocks (sorry not to sure how to spell that) are to bent im not in any way shape or form trying to dis your art but i also noticed that somwhere in the comments you said this was a cantering pose, im sorry but i had to point out its a trotting pose.
im sorry to be such a bitch but i thought that mayb you might wanna kno just in case you wanna fix it
I can assure you this is a cantering pose and the legs look just like they should. I was the one taking the photograph used as reference for this horse, and I definitely know the difference between trot and canter
Again, this new tone that is soft and light that you have been using adds this third dimension to these pieces that most of the older pictures did not seem to contain. This is not to say that the older pictures are horrible or bad in any way or means but there is an essence, a character to these new pieces that old ones do not contain at the same level. I do hope that makes sense. It is a purely good thing, I promise you that though!
That all being said, these simplified backgrounds are really a nice touch to the pieces. The colors of the background blend nicely with the shades of the horse herself and the movements of the horse are somewhat extenuated by the curves of the shape in the background.
Thank you :] It's good to know that I've improved over the years even if it's only a slight difference I can certainly tell with how much faster I can draw things nowadays if I really need to rush - things that usually took me 10 hours to do now only takes around 4-5 with pretty much the same result, so that's the biggest improvement for me
