In flight by Zoubstance In flight by Zoubstance
A jumping horse! In my opinion the horse is often misunderstood in art. I don't see the horse as a cuddly barbie-animal but as a symbol of power and beauty.

...

Wow, that was a lot of yacking. Let's go back to the start: an image of a jumping horse. Yay :B

Power and beauty, you say. With the detail and the magnifisence of this capture, you express that quite so evidently. Why not choose your own words as the title? ^^

Hmm, 'power and beauty' could work as a title, actually =) Maybe I'll use that for a future drawing :la:

I love the angle of this. It really captures the sense of the horse's power, it takes away that "barbie"-esque connotation we typically have with them. Also, and I can't stress enough how impressive this is, that horse has a the most brilliant facial expression! You've captured something there, I don't know what you'd call it. Determination, focus, I don't know, but it is exceptional!

what a great angle O___O

the horse looks so majestic in this phase of jumping, like a pegasus with invisible wings *_*

Meh. Too bad I'm not ready for jumping yet... :/

Thank you very much for the kind words :hug:

And yes, very true.. There is a saying that goes ''Horses lend us the wings we lack'' - that's a very accurate quote, I think =)

And ahh, you'll be ready for that soon enough I'm sure. I don't think I've jumped higher than 60 centimeters myself ^^;

I love the perspective and the shading on this image. Love of movement and power. Very nicely done.

I must agree on horses not being cuddly-barbie toys. I know SO many kids down here that think they can jump on a horse and it will be like "barbie horse adventure". I know that is not for sure (x. I broke both of my wrists coming off a horse I was training.

Anyways, I love the way you drew this! It is so beautiful very realistic (:.

Ah yes, same here.. and not just kids; a lot of grown-ups too; they think horses are machines like bikes D^D
And whoah, both of your wrists? Damn.. luckily I've never been injured seriously, but I have been stepped on.

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it :hug: Thanks for the watch too! :la:
