charcoal on paper, A2 ...and this was the last time I tried doing something so complicated on such small space;)

Amazing! :wow: The motion of the horse is well captured. It reminds some old romanticism-era art, but it's more realistic. Great drawing!

I have to say my favourite thing about horses are their anatomy; Muscles, joints and whatnot. I think you captured that fantasticly well. The subtlety of the shading on the body is perfect, as well as the darker shades around the neck and face. It really shows what would stand out on a real horse. Brilliant work, I love it

i ve seen so many amazing creations in DA that after a while they all seem to blend together in a beautiful but indistinguishable smudge! this half an hour charcoal drawing made my jaw drop...literally! my hand moved in a split sec to click on the thumbnail. this is trully marvelous! i dont know how good you are at pretending to be able to take photos... but i can safely say that you are great with charcoal... and horses apparently!
