Aren't horses difficult to draw? I've drawn them numerous times, especially in my first book SPIRIT OF THE HIGHWAYMAN, but trying to capture that dynamic leg position can sometimes be a royal pain in the butt. This drawing is one of those incidents. I always attempt to do it out of my head, which, I guess must be where the problem lies. I don't know about other artists, but when I resort to looking for photo reference I can never seem to find exactly what I want for the task. After numerous erasing I finally got there...this will (of course) change again when I come to ink it. I planned on this one being a fairly time consuming illustration, so I'll post more as and when.
I've just seen that BOOM studios are releasing an 'omnibus' version of Cthulhu Tales, I hope WHISTLE FROM THE DEEP is in there (Shane Oakley writes a great fishy tale). Also, don't forget to checkout the SPLIT LIP website, where 'A Mother's Love' will be featured.
