Ooh, grass by Zoubstance Ooh, grass by Zoubstance
..Aww man, you guys, I actually kept a promise! :la:
In my last upload I promised to upload a more 'serious' piece in a near future, and.. here you goooooo; please enjoy!


I must admit, I'm not entiiiiirely satisfied with how this one came out. I started off really well with not being able to find my ~*magikhuuulll*~ stick-thingie, that I normally use for these kinds of pieces and that was just JASHGJHSA.
I found it, though. But still, some parts could have been better. I apologize.

When I look at the finished drawing I can't help but think that this horse was doing push-ups, but got distracted by grass in the middle of his exercise, lol.
Push-ups, mr. Teke, you're doing 'em WRONG! ಠ_ಠ


Mmmmyeah, I think that's all. :iconilavplz:

I have never seen this.. it is absolutely amazing!
You make the entire drawing look so smooth without letting the texture of it disappear, and the contrast of the horse's body and the dark tail and mane compliment each other so well!!

This is beautiful! Such a unique pose too. :)
What size/type of paper do you use? And do you use any othe tools (blenders, rubber or knead able erasers)? I'm blown away by the fact that this is done with a mechanical pencil! Almost inspires me to break out my pencils again, although my work is not nearly this good yet.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you think so! :hug:
I use just ordinary printer paper because of its smooth surface (works better with the mechanical pencil, I find). Makes putting in the details easier, but that's probably just my own preference! ^^   Apart from that I use a blending stump (incredibly useful! Couldn't live without it C: ) and the occasional eraser (I tend to 'sharpen' it with a hobby knife, although it would probably be easier if I just used a kneadable eraser, heh). 
Again, thank you so much! I can only encourage you to give it a shot and be patient about it C:

Very nice! I love tekes, especially in drawings and paintings. The sheen of their coats is exceptional!

He does look like he was distracted mid pushup with some delectable grass. XD Then again, I know some horses that get distracted in the middle of anything by any possible edible thing.

Thank you very much! c: Tekes are wonderful; I'm always amazed by their metallic shimmering coats <3
Heh, horses! That's really the best way to make friends with them; bribe them with fooooood x3

And the shading/highlights look so real :D I love it!
