Surveying 2 by tiefgrau Surveying 2 by tiefgrau
Um, another quick-as-possible finishing of a sketch. All in painter.

Yes, it's a weird saddle, sort of based on the roman cavalry saddle with the four horns.

I'd like comments on the dappled coloring on the horse, since that's what I took time trying to figure out a way that doesn't take long but looks good enough.

The dapples are pretty, but they don't strike me as something you'd actually see on a horse. In my experience horse dapples are more subtle and grouped, rather than defined and evenly scattered as here. The mane and tail are to die for, though, so pretty. I really like the background, too.

Too true. That's going to be the hard part of repeatedly coloring a horse at different angles if he's got dapples. I was hoping for a way to make a cut and paste screen to put over that would go for the effect, but I think if I keep experimenting I can find an easy way to do it. Thanks for the comment!
