Desert Sunset by sunwolf29 Desert Sunset by sunwolf29
I've been working on this one sporadically for a little while. Not crazy detailed, but I had fun.

Reference picture I took myself of a neighbor's horse.
Corel Painter Essentials, Genius tablet, 10ish hours.

How do you spectacular artists manage to draw this in just 10 hours! I mean, seriously! HOW?! You must have a lot of practrice under your belts and damn good programs to paint with. I envy you so much right now! I can never do highlights.... >:( :steaming: :pissedoff:

Yeah, over 30 years practice drawing. I just use Corel Painter and a tablet. But for me the secret is using zoom and manually putting in the details.

Thank you so much for the kind comments!

The detail in the horse is incredible! The fur, hooves, veins. The horse looks so real. Great work!

The level of realism you can portray with each picture in such a small amount of time always amazes me!

Thank you so much for the kind words! Once you start drawing the hairs in the small scale, it actually takes a lot less time than you would think. In the traditional world I spent too much time messing with the proportions, but with the digital I can cut and paste and move things and it frees my time to work on the detail instead without having to start over.

I love your work and style! I wish I could be more subtle and match my palates with the composition as you do. I go quite often to your gallery for inspiration - thank you for sharing and inspiring me as well as for the kind words.

Oh, Thank you Sunwolf! It make me so happy to know that my work can inspire people. Do you maybe want to do an art trade? Something small, like a 4''x6''in? I always need more pictures of my mom's horse, Savannah.

This picture looks great. But, if I can have a say, I would place the horizon higher in the future. It looks too close, in a way, if that was not intended. The horse tough is just WOW!!!!

:iconsunwolf29:
sunwolf29 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2010
I think you are right on. The horizon was placed in a spot for me to draw as little ground as possible and not for the composition and it shows(ie I got lazy lol). I also think I either need to centre the horse or move him further back so it would like like he was intentially off centre instead of just sloppily off centre.

Thank you again for the help and the kind words!

Take a peak in my WIP and closeup folder - there are no secrets lol. I just use zoom and paint it all in on a very small scale.

Thank you so much for the compliments!
