Arabian horse study by GalopaWXY
Arabian horse study
I follow Christiane Slawik's page on Facebook and she posted this photo today, and I had a revelation about horses' head anatomy. You know that bone underneath the nose ? The "branches of jaw" if I believe Google ? Well I never grasped how much it sticks out from the head in a really distinct piece, and on the photo you can really tell as clearly as if you saw the skull without skin. And thus I drew said photo :D I posted it to her and she liked it ^^ that's the magic of social networking : I read a book I like, I can just poke the author on FB or Twitter and they will likely see it, and sometimes even reply ! Same goes for artists, or brands, or posters I see in the subway ! How awesome is our time ? I'm loving it.

So this took me just over an hour.
It was meant as a head study, but I ended up adding the body and even shading a little ^^ I'm leaving it on white background this time :)

EDIT : this is kind of blurry unless you enlarge it so click da picture. It's not big.

Here's my response to THE PINK WAVE that has overcome my world lately. hmm 
All over deviantART, Facebook, newspapers, PINK, PINK AND MORE PINK ! I mean, there are other colors to celebrate love ! LOTS of awesome colors ! People who make these designs are graphists and have no excuse. Stuff is aimed at couples, right ? Well, Im in a couple and I'm very much in love. And all this pink everywhere makes me want to puke even though it's not a color I dislike.

That being said. This drawing was meant to test my new awesome Pablo Caran d'Ache colored pencils box that I got for Christmas and hadn't used yet. They feel quite different from Prismacolors - less greasy and they blend less - and I really enjoyed them. We shall be good friends. Ah also I got a new scanner (Canon Lide 120) and it's infinitely better than my old all-in-one HP printer-scanner. I had no idea it was even possible to scan without having to re-draw all the colors in afterwards :o (Eek) 

This is a not-serious-at-all drawing with no reference or effort whatsoever, but it was fun I am a dummy! 
I think it took something like two hours overall. I didn't scan the lineart because I was afraid that I wouldn't color it if I did xD

Also you guys need to teach me a way to cheat-add backgrounds behind pencil drawings like this.
