The 2nd of the 4 elemental qilins: Water, earth, air, and fire.
This one pulls inspiration shishigami from Princess Mononoke. Its footsteps bring and take life.
Ballpoint pen and watercolors. Watch me draw it!
Water To Fire
Watercolors, ballpoint pen, crayola crayons
Refreshing, cool, water horse created by the ocean breeze becomes a magnificent lava horse straight from the center of the earth when the colors are inverted. Either way, both born from raw elements of Mother Earth. The water one is true colors, the fire one is the inversion.
White colored pencil on black artagain paper.
A classic realistic arabian horse portrait with a little bit of a twist. I know I can’t be the only one seeing the arrogance in this stallion’s face right? I will maybe start a series of realistic horse portraits conveying subtle human emotions.

A commissioned piece I did for a song called “Out Of Reach” by Jan Castellari.
If you are an original singer/composer and would like me to illustrate your piece, check out the link for prices! (This particular piece falls under tradigital for sure)
In the video I show BOTH the traditional and digital half, something I haven’t done up until this point.
Elemental Water Qilin
Ballpoint pen, watercolors and salt on 140lb watercolor paper.
The first of the 4 classic elements: Water, Earth, Air, and as the grande finale, Fire. I will be away this weekend but I will still try to have Earth done for Friday :)
I think I have neglected to explain what a qilin is. It’s basically the chinese unicorn. A unique ox dragon hybrid.
You can watch me draw this on youtube! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9e13BN8Prw

White gel pen and white watercolor on black artagain paper
A horse made of nothing but potent energy.
Rearing up to touch the black sky. His wild white mane reaching up as well.
It seems as if he may be trying to attract some lighting. More power for his electrifying body.
This horse has also cleverly decided to stand in a pool of water to generate even more electricity.
Imagine the sparks that will fly when he splashes his mighty hooves back down.
All the hair on your arms will stand up during a bright flash of light.
It will all be gone, just as quick as it came.
Just like lightning.
Kind of a continuation of last week’s drawing I guess you could say. May possibly become a series. The colors here are painted with nail polish.
Here are the links as usual :)

Not your average horse…
I was trying a new style (believe it or not, inspired by Marvel comics). I am definitely going to hone this style, and this mythical creature.
Ballpoint pen, 30mins
This is a present I made for a dear friend of mine :)
Please forgive me for the low quality. I had a 1mb limit on tumblr. I highly suggest you watch this gallop cycle on youtube.
This animation has 12 hand drawn frames which I scanned and then edited in photoshop.
Happy Birthday Michael Jackson!
