This is the first pic I have ever colored completely with a tablet. It takes wuite a bit of getting used to, but I think the results are worth it.

Semi-horsey nudity, but still safe for work.Collapse )

Whoadamn!
Blending human and ungulate anatomy to make an anthro character drawing is hard...harder perhapse than drawing a regular human or ungulate, because you've gotta know both enough to make it "believable." Well...I found this link on someone's FA journal, and it looks pretty awesome. It's all about human anatomy, but that might help us with our ungulate anthros, yes? XD For the record, I haven't actually watched any of his vids, so I dunno how helpful they are. But I figured I'd share anyways.

Eh, howdy!
Heya, I'm not an artist, but I realized this might be handy... one of my favorite sites (I don't know many) for horsie etc... part of Oklahoma State University's Department of Animal Science site, "Breeds of Livestock" page. Lots of handy info and pics of a wide range of horse species, and other critters.

Cool. BTW, I'm trying to collect sites of handy online resources such as this... if you can suggest some, feel free to share ^_^... Yes, I already have Ultimate Ungulate XP

Draft question
I have to note that I don't know how active I will be here, but I think that it is a wonderful idea for a community. I rather like the fact that it focuses around redlines, critiques, and general help with the difficulties often encountered with ungulate anatomy, especially considering the vast variety within the group.

And now for a question, I have worked a fair amount with light breeds of horses, however I am tremendously lacking when it comes to draft and pony breeds. My general tendency is to sketch first and then find references later, which means I spend a lot of time drawing things that I can only see in my head, so a couple rules of thumb to log away would be good to have, I think. I know there are some key differences between the light, heavy, and pony breeds, but are there some general guidelines that one can keep in mind while sketching? I can't recall any place where there is an artistic breakdown of proportions and the like between the three types.

"Ultimate Ungulate Page"
Found a website that's great for general-information and surface photography on just about every last ungulate there is. Some of the critters included might come as a bit of surprise, but that's zöology for you.

New community. :)
Okay, seeing as how this community is new...welcome, and I need y'all to help me with the community "interests." I typed out as many as I could think of, but it certainly isn't all-inclusive. I know there's a tonne of deer, antelope and gazelle and stuff that I'm missing, and I'm sure I missed a few others. :P

Also, since the community is so new, feel free to discuss rules you'd like to see added or changed or gotten rid of, since I just pulled the current rules out of thin air. :P
