Eventing Collection: Show Jumping by Define-X Eventing Collection: Show Jumping by Define-X
This is a drawing of a three-part series I'm doing. This one is the show jumper, the reference used with permission from :iconzeeplease:. Here's the original: [link]
This is my first real try at a background (besides just grey), and I think it went all right. All the technical aspects aren't quite correct, but I'm hoping the focus is on the horse and rider. ;) What do you think? Anything glaringly wrong, or something I miraculously got right? :)

Drawn with 2H - 8B pencils. WIP coming soon!

When I saw this in that little picture in the list I was like "Why is there a photograph?".  But then I realized it was not a photograph!

this is really awsome! I like all you drawings alot, you`re amazing drawer :)) you must have practised a lot? I hope I someday learn to draw even close to this kind of drawings :) and that backround is also amazing, I`m trying to draw backrounds also, but it`s so difficult :D Do you always use mall(?) for your drawings?

I wasn't sure from the thumbnail whether this was a photo or not. I don't even know where to start with the bits you miraculously got right, because it's a very long list! The rendering of the head and the muscles of the neck and foreleg are especially good, and I love the way you've drawn the tack and the rider's jacket. I think the background is just right too; it has a slight sense of motion blur and the background fences are defined well enough to be recognisable and to complement the horse and rider instead of drawing attention away.

The only things that strike me are the flag by the horse's hind leg, which is a little confusing in its placement, and the horse's head seems a little large for its neck. But those are minor things at best, and the rest of the picture more than makes up for them :) Major kudos to you for tackling such a complicated picture, and drawing it so well! :clap:

:faint: Thank you for the detailed feedback! That means so much to me. :iconhappytearplz:

I know what you mean with the flag - I'll have to watch that kind of thing. I think the head is right, but I'll will check back with the reference for sure. Thanks again! :D

The shading is gorgeous! You've captured the sense of it being a snapshot, but the soft blur of the background helps bring the drawing to life. Fabulous work :)
