Drawing Chrome and Zep

 A friend of mine is getting me interested in art again.  Keep in mind it has been years and years since I've drawn horses.... I haven't done much drawing at all in over ten years.  Anyway, here they are.  Let me know what you think.  :)

Mr. Chromey Pony

And this last one I drew upside down... literally.  It's an exercise my friend told me about that helps you learn to use the right side of your brain.  I thought it would turn out horribly.  When I turned the picture over I was shocked!  The proportions are off in the neck and I don't like the jaw, but the rest of it is pretty good.  I was especially shocked that the halter turned out great.  I was expecting it to be distorted and angled wrong or something.  It was a really interesting experiment.

The drawings look better in person than here.  For some reason taking pictures of them makes them look weird lol.  You get the idea though.  :)


  1. I think you did a terrrific job for the first time out of the gate in years. Horses and donkeys are not easy to draw.

    Like you, I was quite a good artist years ago, but it is hard to practice it when life is so busy. It has been even longer for me since I drew a horse.

    I've heard about the upside down drawing, but never tried it. I can't believe how good that one turned out.

  2. I remember the "Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain" book or something like that, and the upside down exercises. I had whole book on how to draw horses once. Good job. If someone showed me that third drawing and asked me to identify the horse, hinting that it belongs to a blogger, I would have said Chrome.

  3. Actually I liked the third one best! All of them are very nicely done though.
