The following is some concept work I've done with quadrupeds with hooves in the last year and a half. First up is Pinstripe, a Texan zebra raised by mustangs.
The snake and the chicken tend to fight all the time like siblings.
These are the initial drawings of Pinstripe..
It was brought to my attention that the socks on his legs looked like nylons with garter belts (!) So I changed that, and made his face blockier, more like a male's.
Some expression sheets - in case you were wondering, these concepts are for an animated children's video.
One of his mustang pals in this one...
A fun one of him in an environment - I really need to draw environments more, they add a lot.
These are a variety of horses I've done, and some are just horse studies, not any particular character.
This is Thistle, a young, prickly foal...
...and Woodrow, a clydesdale. He started out mean because he was beaten, but his character evovled into one who was proud because of his great size.
After being taught a lesson, Woodrow is rewarded with wings (imagine, a clydesdale with wings...yikes)
Some random drawings of horses - they're just plain fun to draw!
yes, even horse skeletons
Some harness studies for Woodrow.
And finally, some drawings of deer I've done. No character development really, but I like to draw them even more than horses for some reason. I think because they're so flexible and can do these amazing things with their bodies.
