Bucking Horse by chalicothere Bucking Horse by chalicothere
Defiant. That was the word I had to illustrate, so what I came up with was a horse dynamically trying to buck off his saddle. If he ever did have a rider, I imagine he's probably been shot up hundreds of feet into the air by now.

Drawn in pencil and colored in photoshop

Your foreshadowing is impeccable, and your style is adorable.  You're great at giving your characters expression.  And those clouds...  I wish I could draw clouds like that.  :)

Thank you!  They are drawn using a big soft brush and very light opacity (10-20%) in photoshop.

I actually did get to see some pre-production work for Spirit, and they did have a skinny black horse antagonist as well as some other awesome-looking characters. Sadly, none of them made it into the movie.

Sounds painful! I'm glad you're okay. I've got one that tries to bite me all the time, and recently, he kicked me in the arm (the white horse in the pic is based off him).

I think injuries like that are pretty common when dealing with horses. I've had my feet stepped on many many times and once while wearing flip flops. Still, your horse sounds like a real trouble maker in particular.

Oh he is. He reared virtically 10 times in a row during a lesson. Wouldn't even give me enough time to get off and check the saddle to see if that was bothering him
