Horse by Pyrophobic Horse by Pyrophobic
A charcoal drawing depicting the head of a hellish steed - a ragged combination of bone and armour. Mainly inspired by George Stubbs' anatomical studies of horse corpses. One day I'd really love to draw this creature's body in full.

Dude I am serious... I almost lost my dinner when I saw this. YOU MUST DO THE BODY! It reminds me of HR Giger's aliens.

You lost your dinner? Did a dog steal it? Just kidding.

Heh, you know, I really -should- do the body one of these days... Maybe I can placate you with the full body drawings of several other creepy cretins that'll be coming up once I've uploaded some of my recent art. [And if that wasn't an obvious plug, I don't know what is ^____^]

Giger is god.

Thanks for the comment!

Why do herbivore skulls always seem more nightmarish than carnivore skulls? I don't get that.

Hrm - well, it could be that the horror of carnivores is somewhat banal - it's been established so many times that they're scary and dangerous that it doesn't seem uncanny in the least that their skulls should be creepy. With herbivores, they're so cute and benign in life that seeing them stripped down to skeletons makes those skeletons extra-freaky.

Or something. I dunno.

Great Texture, I love this picture! So Hellish and beautiful at the same time! Much different than lots of your other artwork...

Well, oddly enough, this is the sort of subject matter I tend to draw most, but not much of it's that presentable. I'll have to work on another one.

Thanks for the comment!

Awesome texture, I really like this piece. Nice motion through the piece, too. Really snazzy work. And in charcoal, no less, very cool.
