Oaxacan Horse, Stage 1!
^ Rather than trace my lineart with ballpoint, I opted to keep the pencil lines intact and color over them with Verithins.
^ Feathering begun...
^ ...and finished on right foreleg.
^ Pulling back to show the completed hooves.
^ Belly outlined, with light markings penciled in.
^ I outline the forelock and mane with Process Red; the eye with Ultramarine.
^ The tail is also outlined with Process Red.
^ Finished color outlines!
^ Obligatory skewed-angle shot.
^ Facial marking and eye completed, I move onto the forelock; I prime it with Aquamarine.
^ Magenta added.
^ Dahlia Purple and Violet complete the forelock's shadows.
^ Orange added for a 'highlight.'
^ Magenta completes the forelock!
^ My color palette, worked out last night (along with all progress seen on this post). Printed inspiration beneath it. For a bolder selection, I left yellow out and replaced it with Chartreuse.
