Zenyatta's Distaff by scenceable Zenyatta's Distaff by scenceable
After I drew the picture of Rachel I wanted to do one of Zenyatta. I finished the horse and rider part quickly but I can never think of what to put in track backgrounds, since its always something ugly in the reference picture.

But, in the end I figured it out. I looked through some santa anita infield photos (when the infield wasn't full of people and other things). I figure since I already cut out the other horse in the drawing this wasn't going to be too realistic anyways

I sort of wish I'd drawn her bigger in the picture, but oh well.

this was the reference I used for most of it, along with some other pictures of zen for her tack and things:

Done in derwent colorsofts and polychromos (colored pencils) on 9x12 inch paper. Took about 3-4 hours.

You have got wonderful direction. It really emphasises movement, as do your pencil strokes. The horse is wonderfully shaded :hug: But where's the jockey's arm? o,O
