Welcome to Sleepy Hollow ladies and gents. Hold onto your head cause you just might lose it. Because today we honor the Legend of Sleepy Hollow on this 15th day of Inktober.
This one was fun to draw and I took extra time today to try and get it as detailed as possible. Took my sweet time on the pencil sketch and even longer on the inking with the inkwell thingy majig. This is probably the most time I’ve ever spent staring at the position a horse’s foreleg goes when rising up from its back legs. I erased and redrew that left foreleg like ten times before I felt it was in an appropriate position. Never mind that the anatomy is probably way off still. But realism is not my forte and I think it’s the best horse I’ve ever done so far. The headless Horseman didn’t turn out so bad either. Adding coat tails and capes really saves you from figuring out leg placement at the top of a saddle. lol.
See you tomorrow for the start of the second half of Inktober day 16, Wild.
