Bla Tigern by solyrosas Bla Tigern by solyrosas
From the painting by David Klöcker Ehrenstahl, 1673.

- Coloured pencils (Derwent + misc old ones)
- Black Mi-Teintes paper
- 10 x 11 cm / 4 x 4,3 inches
- 6 1/2 hours

Sorry about the crappy scan. Anyways, this was lots of fun, except for the background, lol :D I believe I could´ve done that better. But overall, I like this one. I screw up the horse´s eye, it should be lighter but I erased and re-drew it so much that eventually the pencils wouldn´t attach to the paper. Leaving this. Oh well...

Comments would make me so happy. :) But please bear in mind that I had nothing to do with the composition or the anatomy of the horse, I just drew what it looked like in the painting, which by the way is gorgeous! ^_^

stunning!
Even though you drew straight from a reference like that, It is still an amazing drawing! and it takes skill to do it anyways.
Your colouring is really good!

I like this drawing a lot.

There is a lot of movement in the horse and it does remind me of those old drawings :)

Maybe I'll make one of these someday as well. Nice idea :)

the orginal artist didnt draw the head to small, infact in the days when he lived, the horses had small heads and bug butts! i think that is really cool :D and so is this picture!

I really like this picture! out of everything in your gallery, it is one of my favorites. I know you said you had nothing to do with the anatomy or composition, but even though you didn't, I do so love this style of drawing horses - not always perfectly lifelike, but it ends up looking wonderful with the slender legs and heads and thick bodies and necks. the coloring here is lovely. the jawline looks a little awkard, but I don't know what the original looks like, so I can't tell if that was you or the original painter.

very, very nice drawing.

Thank you so much! I probably did make some mistakes here, but Im not sure whos to blame for the jawline. Im gonna have to check, and maybe itd be a good idea if I were to show off the reference in the description, since some people have indeed been telling me wrong on the anatomy, though I had very little to do with that... ;) I really like this style as well, its very interesting.

Thanks again! :heart:
