Horse in the desert with a dragon on a cliff

Oh neighn!

The deserts can be a dangerous place when walking alone.

Now this was challenging to draw! I had to look at sooo many references of horses, their anatomy, lightning, deserts etc 😀 The clouds and the perspective were a bit of an experiment too.

Done in Krita.
Time taken: idk 10-15 hours

Drawing process:

p1
Rough sketch.
p2
A finer sketch.
p3
Basic colour added.
p4
Horse and dragon coloured (didn’t save steps for this process). This step took the longest amount of time, especially the horse.
p5
Some background details.
p6
Even more background details. I later found that they took the focus away from the subject of the drawing so I simplified them quite a lot (see next step).
p7
Remade the background a bit.
p8
Some clouds and birds added. Finished!
