Jessi, drawing my horse

Jessi, wild mustang has been at our ranch for over 10 years and I finally got around to drawing a portrait of her.

Make sure that you use many photographs available for reference purposes. I use some but being my horse I already am quite familiar with her appearance and mannerism.

Always try to use a good quality product when creating any of your artwork. It would be terrible to draw something perfect but the paper quality makes it less appealing. I myself use #2 pencils and charcoal pencils, an assortment of erasers along with an electric eraser, and good quality drawing paper.

Start out with a light outline of the subject matter before you begin to really shade and detail. Also, I always look for something unique, for Jessi is was her mane and darkened scare on her nose. People seeing this for the first time, know immediately that it is a portrait of Jessi.

This picture has opened another door to my talents by additional commissions to draw horses for friends and neighbors.
