The Handsome Boy by Define-X The Handsome Boy by Define-X
Here's another sketch of my QH gelding, Archie. He is simply the cutest, most gorgeous, most talented horse... ever. I'm only a tad biased, of course. ;)
This only took about a day; I'm becoming very fond of that sketchy drop-off around the edges. That could be just because I'm lazy, but I like the end look. :)
This is a 9x12 drawn with HB - 8B pencils, and, yes, the picture is mine.

Who's a pretty boy? =P You might be biased about his talent, but certainly not his looks, he's a stunner! He looks like a very intelligent, very kind horse here. And personally I think the sketchy drop-off works very well to contrast the beautifully finished face with the sketchier, less important edges. 10/10 for design and execution :D

Hahaha - Why, thank you. I'll let him know you think so (to which he'll most assuredly reply with an I-told-you-so). ;) Thank you! I like the look, for sure.

Please give him a pat too while you tell him, I'd hate for him to feel he was missing out on a random person's admiration =P And you're welcome, of course ^^

I think you captured his character real nicely, and one can tell this portrait was done with love. :aww:
I also like that "sketchy drop-off", it gives a nice effect. ;P
