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.
