And another horse...

This time on paper, and with lots of layers. I feel much more at home working with coloured pencils on paper than drafting film - mainly because I know what I'm doing on paper. This does not mean I have given up on drafting film - far from it - just needed to get my layering fix that's all.

When starting a portrait, be it human or animal, I always start with the eyes and work my way out. Get them wrong and the portrait just won't look right as you know. With horses, however, I start with the muzzle and work my way up?!?! Not really sure why apart from it being my favourite part to draw - don't you just love their muzzles?
