One foal, three wild moves....
Here is Zig Zag a little 3 day old filly.
On the day of the shoot she spent the better part of 15 minutes at full speed and literally on her toes: bubbling with life and overflowing with energy.
Ciao, Fancy Free and Footloose have been my way of studying and illustrating and understanding her baby "steps".
The very interesting thing about drawing foals is the way in which you have to render their little muscles: they are so defined and tense yet underdeveloped. The other thing is the over-dimensional width and length of their legs...a little surreal. However, I really just can't help smiling when drawing them.
