Posting these to show the evolution of Sterling’s character. For anyone who knows Sterling and the modern internet, you might describe him as “herp derp.” Always stoned from windsucking, (rapid inhaling of air, horses do it to get high), tripping over himself and typically down right lovable (unless he’s getting a hair cut.) In the end his palette and markings will stay the same.
Oh there’s too many pictures to count, but here’s some reference shots of his second month at our farm and later pictures of him showing 2’3” hopeful hunters. More pictures coming this weekend I’m sure, as he’s taking one of our volenteers to a show in the 2’3” and 2’6” classes : ).
Pictures around the farm as reference. Currently the idea is to trace over the background with a fine ball point and layer my background with crumpled parchment effect and some water color for a light hue, giving the animation a setting, but not overpowering the action.
