This is for the BMa Draft Show, hosted by the wonderful *lantairvlea!!

Name/Number of Class Entering: 11 - English Riding (Dressage)
Registered Name: Sweetbriar's Blackberry Bramble
Barn Name: Blackberry
Breed: Brabant
Age: 13 (currently)
Height: 16.4hh
Color: Blue Roan
Markings: Wide blaze, 2 socks, 2 pasterns

Wow, this nearly killed me! I hate drawing people, especially faces in profile. Ugh. Luckily I now have one rider 'base' that I've modified to each of my stable's three riders, and on different kinds of saddles.
So I love Blackberry's expression here. Something about it just says, YEAH well, fcuk you all.... i'm a Brabant doing dressage. :XD: lmao Sadly, Brielle looks huge on top of Blackberry. Eewps! :giggle:

More to come, and wish us luck. :D

They're a nicely turned out pair! I love all the little details from the double-bridle and shadbelly to the tail all done up in its little net.

Good luck!

:D Thanks! :hug: I've been sketching humans a lot on paper recently. They're never my strong point, but I'm glad other people see I'm improving.
A little at a time and lots of practice!
