Wow! These are nice, ld! You can't find a lot of people who can properly render a horse, but you succeeded in spades (as well as with the people, too)! That last piece is very haunting; I halfway expect to see fire and brimstone coming from the horse's nostrils.

These are pretty cool. I like the vibe on the last guy. Is the second guy reacting to seeing the third guy? It seems as if he'd make that kind of impression on people.

Thanks everyone.
jeffchris50 i grew up reading Bonelli comics, which are mostly westerns, i drew so many horses, but even today without some reference i struggle to get it right.
DCdraw, second piece is my own project, which will probably never get done haha. Third image came to me after reading a collaboration post from this forum.

looking good man. last piece is a winner. loving the atmosphere and good figure work (horse anatomy is very strong!). keep rocking.

nice work, a lot of energy and you draw horses petty well (which is not an easy thing to do) the one problem I see is in the second image the guys arm holding the torch is all wrong, it looks short and twisted funny, the foreshortening just didn't land. otherwise nice stuff

Thanks Selkirk, it means alot to me having you complement my work.
Noahgrahamart, thank you. And now that you mention it, you are absolutely right. Originally the hand was to follow the sleeve's direction, but i redrew that hand so many times, i think i forgot to redo the sleeves

Having a little break from westerns.
Started out as Conan, but then i went for someone much more manly. Its my take on Frazettas Darkwolf, i decided not to use any reference, but rather what I remember him looking like

Your equines are better than those I see in 95% of comics these days. One of my biggest pet peeves is when an artist takes on a project like a western or some other period piece where there's a horse in every other panel, and they CANNOT draw horses to save themselves! Discrepancy between humans and animals in the artwork is one of the things that breaks immersion in a story for me. Glad to see you put an effort into this.

Thank you Sharpieslinger, in a western, hardest things to draw are hats and horses, its something that should never be attempted without reference, if you dont draw them everyday. Lately i have been trying to practice certain horse poses from really weird angles, believe it or not, its so hard finding a decent picture of a horse from behind :)
Biggest disappointment for me is dark horses Conan, most of the artists are ridiculously talented until it comes to horses. I think the title Daughters of Midora has almost alien looking horses. At marvel John Buscema was a master when it came to drawing everything including horses.

Go on YouTube and look up trail riding and equestrian sports videos, including the ones shot by GoPro. Get some screen grabs. For cavalry battle scenes, look at polo matches, military reenactors, polocrosse, mounted bullfighting, buzkashi, tent pegging, mounted skill at arms and cowboy action shooting. To get a horse at a particular angle without good reference, start with a straight-on side view and a top view of foot placement, then take that foot placement to a perspective view and work it out. The best equestrian artists in comics these days are Donna Barr and Diana Sasse (aka Diana Kennedy). Their poses and rendering of tack and equipment is awesome.

Wow, you're also a big fan of the old west like me. The hardest type of art to pull in my opinion. Not only the gunplay movement but also making sure the horse and rider should align in the art. I tend to imagine working without reference but it's tough. I think you pulled it off easy. Good job!:banana::bounce:

Also a big fan of the Westerns, here.
Most of the horse I see in comics look like they belong on a merry go round:p
Also dig the rugged look (as they should be) of your cowboys.
