Horse Studies


I'm starting a t-shirt design that will only be printed in one color. Part of the design involves a horse so I started doing some studies to help get a style and some sense of the proportions I want. Here are some early attempts. I've never liked my horse drawings so I really wanted to get one I felt was unique but still based from the real thing. I looked at photos on "google images" to get some understanding of what a horse looks like. I don't want it to look realistic but I also don't want it to look like my distortions were random chances which so many designs now look like to me. I'll post more attempts as I study more. Neigh.

hahahha, very nice. The first one looks like a field of stars, very nice and soft lines to look at, as always, from Mr. Ben.

i dig 'em all but i think I'd like the more graphic on on the top right for a t-shirt. The giraffe one looks great too but the head and the body look like separate designs. Can't wait to see more!

There's something cool about well done silhouettes, and these here, are well done.
I also enjoyed the rest of your work since my last visit.

Cheers,
