Horses

I love to draw horses but always have to use reference to get them looking right. I came across this neat little horsie tutorial from Droemar. It really helped me to understand the body and neck shapes better and my horses are starting to look a bit more dynamic, before they looked really wooden and stiff . In the second page of this tutorial she shows how to draw trotting and galloping and common mistakes people make when inventing horse poses. This is also really helpful.
Here are some pages from my sketchbook using these tutorials, a bit wonky but but encouraging even so.
