Horsey Figures - 3

Horses are people too :)

As stated in previous posts on horses, I do find a lot of similarity between drawing humans and horses. The proportional issues can be dealt with likewise, e.g. by using head length as unit for measurement, and the muscle/skeletal topography is quite analogous. In addition, its a pleasure to draw the great sweeping curves in horses, and try to depict the throbbing, restless sense of vitality.So here goes, a series of sketches made in the last few days...

All in A3 size paper, using conte, charcoal, pastels and watersoluble crayons/pencils. Ref images, unless otherwise stated, by Breathless-dk on deviantart. Please click to view at FULL size.
