Spud on paper by Scotston Spud on paper by Scotston
Its Spuddie again! and SO OLD! - 2012

There's alot that could be improved on this piece.. and i mean, a lot!

The photo used was from a show, His face is actually longer then this, but i completed the bridle first [was only a practice anyway] and when adding the markings under his eye, i realised i'd lopped off about an inch of his face >.<

I didnt want to have a thick black smudged outline, so i used the bridle to 'lift' it out. Doesnt look quite like the actual sketch [scanners for you _]


He does look quite evil, but thats because hes rolling his eyes.. [yes, really!]

Great! When watching this I feel almost the soft and tender nostrils and nose under my fingertips - and yearn to pet it! What a fantastic drawing.

How long did it take to put this on paper??!

Thank you for sharing!

I think you managed very well! It doesn't really show that you drew his face shorter than it is...^^

It would be nice to finish the neck, maybe.... otherwise, it's a very nice drawing!

Thanks. The piece is several years old now. The neck was left unfinished due to the angle of my horse. It would have ended up looking very flat if it was completed.
