A blog designated to my art work to serve as an online gallery.My art features mainly modern, energetic, equine images in mixed media.I also do caricatures on commission.The caricatures can be set in any situation but the default is, of course, on the back of a horse!

Max the super mule immortalized
Here is the beginning of my mule commission.This is Maximilian the super mule. I had three photos to work from and decided on a sort of collage of all three.I am about half way through and sort of wish Max was not such a dark color as i sort of like how the colors are right now. I'm almost there with the mug shot at the bottom of the frame. It was opportune that i happened to have a coffee cup left lying around where the coffee had gone really thick and intense in color. I still need to build up some layers as max is really quite a dark brown mule. I also changed some things from the rough sketch above.Two fairly major adjustments. Can you spot them?
