Day 49 #100horsesbyroxanne

By using the method of circles and lines to draw the structure of the horse's movements I now feel I can capture them more quickly and effectively than I ever did before. Next I need to focus on getting those proportions right.

The reference photo I was using for this one was of a fully grown horse but my drawing has ended up looking like a pony, but why? 🤔 There is some foreshortening here which I don't believe I have successfully achieved and I think that may have something to do with it. In hindsight I should've made the main body bigger and longer as that's the part that's nearest to us and the head much smaller as it turns away from us.

If you notice something that could be improved in this drawing then please do put a comment below. The 100 day project is all about my self development and sometimes having constructive feedback from others can really help me to see something which is out of kilter that I don't necessarily recognise straight away 💪.
