Blind by howlinghorse Blind by howlinghorse
From one of those stories that appears in my head fully formed in like 2 seconds, and I just HAVE to draw it, or it'll be gone, and I do, and then when I finish the drawing I realise that's the only reason the story was in my head - to get the drawing to exist, and have the feeling that I want in it, but the story is meaningless itself.
Sorry that it's sketchy! I can't seem to finish anything at the moment.

I think the sketchiness really works in this case. lovely, dynamic composition, and excellant work showing the playful tenderness between the two. They're very individual. <3

Do you mean this isn't finished? It looks fantastic the way it is. I love the colors! Is this a painting? It looks like one to me, but I could be wrong.

I love the not-finished feel. Adds to the fantasy aspect, and I think it makes it feel more dreamlike.

A very touching scene. The sketchyness actually gives it energy/movement. I like it a lot. :D

thank you very much! I'm glad you can see movement :D this was one of the ones where the subjects I'm drawing seem to move even as I draw them.. which usually leads to sketchyness and me making inexplicable exclamations like "Hold STILL there!"

did you reference the bay horse off Bryn by any chance? Looks a bit like him in the face!

no didn't reference it, but often my sketches come out like Bryn or Dee, I suppose because I see so much of them :P thanks! :D

lol, its probably only cause I've sketched this kind of thing so much in the past that I can draw it from memory, I doubt that I made it up entirely :P (the colours I don't think I've ever drawn/seen before, but I like the idea of a purple mane a lot :D hehe)
