Did you know? Drawing horses is freaking hard... hmpf

I've been working on this picture for 2 months. Not continuously, of course, but it took loads of hours and it's my longest project ever!

About Epona... If you have a look at my gallery, you'll notice that I don't have a single horse drawing. Why? Because I've never drawn any and this one here is my very first one (if you haven't guessed by the look of it :D)

Anyway, I hope you like this :) And if you do, please fave, comment and share! Happy Link 

Used tools: Photoshop and Wacom tablet

Link and Epona belong to Nintendo, the drawing belongs to me

More Link/Dark Link art

Love it! I couldn't tell it was your first time until I read the description. I can't even draw a horse as well as you! :D

Here's a tip when it comes to digital art, though. Don't shade with black. Trust me; black in digital art can create really muddy colours. I'm not sure if the same applies to traditional art, but I remember it certainly does apply to coloured pencils. (mainly because I don't end up with pleasant results after I use it... xD)
Also, try to get some more interesting colours in there. A good way to do thart is by making your shadows a different colour. That way, your painting will look a touch more lively. :)

Fact: Nintendo used to shade with black. ew

But y'know, not forcing you to follow what I say. Keep going at what you're doing; all your choice and style. :)

Thanks for the tips! I don't mind getting them, especially from someone who actually studies digital art, because I have no clue about how you supposed to do properly all that stuff in digi drawing... But anyways, I like the idea of the non-black shadows :)
Do you know what my big problem is? The background. I either can't think of any good ones or just too lazy to do them... But then again, I never draw anything other than faces...

Omg, the background. YES, that's also my biggest problem too. It stuns me when I see people draw these amazing backgrounds because ew how does one backgrounds?
I also end up drawing faces a lot too. and then there are my friends like HOW DOES YOU FACES DUDE THEY'RE THE HARDEST THING EVER

I don't think they're the hardest things. I love them, especially the eyes, they're my favorite things to draw :)

Drawing horses isn't my thing at all... But I thought Link would look good on horseback, so I gave it a try :D

For your first time drawing a horse, Epona even, I say that she looks amazing along with Link!~ :D You did a great job with those two, I love it.~

Honestly, I'm surprised about the final result of Epona, because the early version looked really dumb...

ok
can I just say
that your Epona looks a LOT better than mine ever will lol

I think this drawing is perfect! Epona doesn't look bad, it's a very good first try! Whenever I try and draw a horse it ends up looking like a dog with a big head.
