Thoroughbred Thursday - Artwork thread

Post by Ren Marston » 10 months ago

So, I have an IG w a fairly large following and every Thursday I play a story game called Thoroughbred Thursday where I let my followers vote between two of my horses and choose which one I draw that Thursday (though I'll admit, a mixer slips in here and there). Anyways, because the IG community I'm apart of doesn't really play this game I thought I ought to share my thursday artwork here on the Forum! So, ill be using this here thread to post it for y'all to see. Enjoy!

(All of the artwork that will be featured is privately owned by me and while I doubt anyone here would try, please do not download or use any of this artwork for your own purposes.)

To kick things off, here is one from a week in the past. This is Like Or Like Like, one of my homebred yearling fillies.

Very nice! I always wanted to be able to draw, but all that talent went to 2 of my sibs. If I tried to do this we'd have a Rorschach blot.

Here is last weeks Thoroughbred Thursday's horse- Desert Shaman. He is my first season homebred colt who is currently galloping at Stakes with LB improvement. He's also out of my in house stud so I'm very excited for his career!

Exactly! And in the drawing video I was impressed by the memory of every detail of a live horse. Maybe artists just see things in a much richer way than I do but I could never remember all of that let alone get it on paper.

Here is this week TB Thursday, which I actually ended up doing last night as sort of a filly friday instead since I was busy Thursday.

This filly is really exciting for me, her name is Beware The Ides as she was bred on March 15th and it felt fitting. Her damm is Feats Of Strength, the Y-49 Stewards Cup Filly and Mare Turf Sprint winner who earned over 1M on the track while her sire is Lord Black, who has had 6 foals earned over 1M and produced over 100 stakes and 14 freaks and may be considered one of the best Turf Sprinter sires currently standing. So fingers crossed for this filly!
