Excuse me sir, your drawings are awesome, but I'm a horse rider and I find the reins on the right totally placed in the wrong way. Maybe this looks pointless to you, but it has a reason why. Horses add prestige to art pieces, that's why I recommend to study them before drawing them. Thanks for the attention though
I think it's a matter of perception or how you look at the reins. I see nothing wrong with them. If anything, they've kind of just glided off the page slightly so it gives the illusion that they aren't there. The head wear and bridle are tilted slightly off screen. Trust me he didn't get anything wrong.
(I apologize for my bad english) ... Just look the horse on the left. Reins are pending from the mouth and they go on the neck, ok?
Other horses have the reins coming out of their heads, behind the ears. Reins aren't even pending from the mouth. I find this so disturbing, because you can't have control of the horse with reins placed in this way. I know this is an aesthetic choice, but still gives me shivers!
I keep on having to remind myself that there is a ton of experienced and amazing artists out there, because sometimes I think that I've already seen how art like this cannot, under any circumstances, be topped. Even though I'm proven wrong again and again, I don't mind, because I get to see artwork that should have its place in a museum of some sort; that's always a good thing.
This piece is nothing different. It may just be an illustration for a card, but the detail and precision in this would make me want to buy a print of this and put it up on my wall, whether I know what this is referring to or not. And I would gladly do so if the creator of this would allow that to happen.
There is just too many unique parts of this that I can't even pick my favorite! There's the horses and their intricate yet seemingly simple armor. There's the wings in the background with their own style aside from the rest of the picture. Finally, there's the man in the middle, holding up the (scepter?) with the glow of the sun piercing through it to give the whole picture a dramatic look. So yeah, if I was asked what my favorite part of this was, it would take me a minute or two to just eliminate one of them as my answer.
Since this is not a print, I would more than happily buy this card or a pack of cards from whence this is for and hope that I get this one just so I can keep it snug in my card holders.
