Fijalar by JustABeautifulDream Fijalar by JustABeautifulDream
May I introduce: Fijalar van Frederick, 7 years, Frisian
His owner got him two years ago and since then tells their story in a German horse-forum [link]. I stumbled over their video [link] on youtube a few months ago and then started to read what she has written about their life. It really caught me, it was so sad at times because of injuries Fijalar got and his agressive behavior and still his owner never gave up and fought for him. At the same time she often writes what happened to her so funny and alive that I feel like I have been there!
Let's just say it wasn't exactly the best thing that I found it only a few weeks befor my exams. :giggle:
I was so moved by their story and Fijalar is such a beautiful animal that I finally asked her for permission to use her photos for a drawing. :happybounce: Now I can only hope that she likes what I did!
The references are from [link] and [link]

This time I tried to make a gif, mostly because I myself find it very interesting how a picture gets
drawn and I wanted to see the changes it goes through. ->
WIP -> [link]

-DinA 4
-3H, H, HB, B, 2B, 6B (mechanical) pencils

There are two more pictures I would have loved to do, they are on my to-do list. But first there at least three other things. Probably more...
