    Free spirit

    Decided to try my hand with a horse. I haven't drawn a horse in about 20 years. I cant get great detail like Vanity because I am horrible at doing detailed work but I am happy with this, unless of course you all hate it.
    I used pencil and knife. I did a rough outline first then used the hard shader and then used the knife to blur. Finally I used the knife on the smudge setting. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. Then I added the words which I think sum up the horse best. I tried to upload into my gallery and it said the file was too large so i tried to re-size and still too large. If anyone could help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. as always thanks for looking,
    Hannah

    That's really nice, Hannah. I'm better at using real pencils than I am with the pencil tool in AR for some reason, but I've never been able to draw a decent horse. :P

    What format: png jpg ???

    What dpi ?????
    are you using?

    png is large .............any artwork format ....with over 72 dpi is large too.

    JPG is the most used format at 72 dpi. I always make a huge png at 300 dpi and then resize to jpg at 72 dpi for posts.

    Hannah, I recognize the picture of the frisian stallion. I think you did a great job ! It is not the details that make a great painting though.
    This looks very nice....
    His body is exactly that of a Frisian, his head could be of some other horse but in his expression, also without details, I recognize a Frisian again.
    One is not better than the other....it's only a difference in style...
    I surely love yours !

    You should do this more often...and forget about the details....anyone can see the details are there !

    This is absolutely fantastic Noogins...I like this one a lot !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    I like it, very effective and the horses position on the canvas together with the wording creates a nice balance.

    Thanks all for all the positive feedback though coming back to it I can see some mistakes. The head seems off to me. Oh well. Bobbyray I'm afraid I am kind of stupid when it comes to computer jargon and I don't even know how to find out how big my file is. I know it is a jpg though. Thanks again all I just might try another horse.
