Beautiful work, the sheen on his coat is amazing :love: All of the textures - flying hair, the wrinkles in the neck, the grassy lump - are very well done ^_^

Amazing work... ;)

I Don't know how anyone can accuse you of Lying..? Maybe they should take a look at your Other works as Comparison..?

(Or maybe just a look at Themselves in the Mirror!) :/

Thanks, Jeff. I appreciate it. I was a bit bewildered by the "lying" comment, too. :hmm:
I don't know whether to be flattered or insulted! I appreciate your kind words and support, my friend.

Maybe an Emoticon would have given us a better Clue as to how the Remark was to be taken?

Hi, Joanna. Good or bad, I drew every bit of it. I was
a bit confused by your comment. Were you being mean?

I don't mean to be rude but I honestly don't believe you drew this picture as I have seen the actual photos of this picture, I even used it to practice drawing hair blowing in the wind.

As I mentioned in the Description, I found the photo of the horse on-line. He was wearing a halter, which I omitted. You can compare the photo and my drawing and see many many tell-tale signs that its a drawing (I wish I was that good so folks would swear it was a photo, but alas...I'm not!). I'm 45 years old, draw for my own pleasure (in this case, I drew the horse for my sister who shows horses). I've never sold anything...though I'd love to draw well-enough to sell my work one day. I share and post my drawings to get input, critique and feedback from the many talented artists here on DA. I don't know what to tell you, but I assure you I drew this. Like you said, don't take this the wrong way or think I'm being rude, but...believe what you want. I'm not an expert with PS or examining artwork on computers, but there are some people here on DA who can easily uncover fakers and such... I welcome you or anyone else to examine it. I'll put a link to the source photo up in the description.

Thank you, Dree. You're sweet. Yes, I had a time with the grass...I actually studied how you
drew your grass in "The Tabers", which helped me out immensely.
