Gilwi the Horse (by Alex)

(click and it magically becomes bigger ^^)

Just a quick post of Gilwi(I hope I spelled the name correctly), a cute horse of Sylvia, a wonderful co-worker of mine in Germany. She loves her horse a lot, and I was still thinking about drawing something with beautiful hair and she burned be a CD with pictures of her beautiful horse.
:) I got those picture 3 months before, and I just hadn't got time for it, with all the traveling and other sketches that I had to do first. So I am sorry Sylvia for taking this so long, Tanna loves this one too by the way as she loves horses.
I finally got to Louisiana, after getting stranded in Memphis for a night because of the tornado. I'm still trying to fix the broken clock in my body, and I need to fix by tomorrow because I'll need to get busy starting tomorrow for the whole week. I am hoping that I'll get more clues on how to proceed next with my life after the meeting with my lawyer on Tuesday in New Orleans. I've never been there and frankly I am looking forward to this day-trip. Wish me luck guys because I'll need a lot of it.

Thank you all again and again for all your comments on my drawing of YUI. I really had fun doing that, and I didn't think it looked like her but apparently everyone's been telling me otherwise. I probably need to fix my eyes too XD Happy drawing everyone!


  1. What on earth are you doing on our side of the pond!? Lawyers, how to proceed with your life - sounds pretty heavy. Hope all is okay. Anyway - welcome - enjoy the USA! Finally, the horse - I knew before looking that you'd do well with this one, because what is a horse but hair! It is, of course a beautiful drawing. He/she has kind of a cynical look, like you told him/her a bad joke. :) The eye is very expressive, and I like the way the head is detailed, and the neck is kind of blurred. Brings the viewer's eye to just the right spot.

  2. Really beautiful! I could stroke that velvet noes...

    I do hope your life gets simpler soon, you have both my sympathy and empathy with that.

  3. She is absolutely beautiful! The glossiness and the texture of her mane is wonderful. Good luck with your "lawyering". I hope all is well. nancy

  4. You're very good with hair and fur! Great drawing!
    Hope everything goes well with your inner clock and your lawyer and life stuff. I'm also very intrigued, and hope the best for you...
    Best regards,

  5. Beautiful portrait,
    does Gilwi have a copy in her stall?
    Bonne chance , Alex, with everything.
    It is nice to have you on our side of the ocean.

  6. What a great sketch, Alex! And I'm sorry I didn't comment on Yui! It seems that although I'm "following" your blog, it would help if I actually logged in to my account in order to actually follow! Usually I just click on my favorite links. To remedy that problem, I've added you to my faves list! Both are excellent sketches. Absolutely beautiful.

  7. Wow..I like the way his hair sways away...

    This is a wonderful portrait of Gilwi - horsiness shining through. don't understand your apology re "rant", and can't find anything, but know all good thoughts for all good things are being sent your way. Both my children were born in Touro Infirmary, New Orleans, and I still have family there. This time of year, New Orleans defines "sultry". She is a beautiful, if worn and tattered city. Louisiana is the only state in the USA where lawyers practice according to the "Napoleonic Code" versus the "Civil Code". Again, wishing worries become opportunities which bring you smiles

  9. What a sweet face, and a mane that is beautifully maintained!!

  10. Another magical lines are beautiful ..your touch so delicate...Just lovely.

    I hope all works out for you...:)

  11. ^^ Yes, you're right... I absolutely love this sketch. The detailing and expression, like others have said already, are just wonderful.

    And, don't worry, Love, we are in this together so there is no where for us to besides up up up! <3
