    Is it working if the horse is painted already? Or I need to paint him in the computer?
    Sorry for my bad English :X hope you understand what I meant to…

    Apparently, it does. There’s some problems, but nothing you can’t fix with photoshop ^^.
    Thank you!

    I would like to create a horse drawing on paper and I was wondering if there was any particular type of paper that is best to use or any other tips that make it easier for PS to do this without having too much extra work. Many thanks to the author of this tutorial. Prior to this, everything I have seen has insisted that hand drawing was so difficult that doing it otherwise was nearly impossible. I can’t draw well enough with just a computer to get anything decent looking. I will definably try this.
    I’m not sure if this is the place for this, but I though I would ask. I also wondered if anyone knows why such terrible art is seems to be getting through lately? Each month I think, this will be the month with some great new stuff. Then I go on and see, that despite voting and seeing some stunning items (including horses that have been submitted for at least 3 months in a row now) that don’t get voted through. At the same time, many horses that look like nothing more than dark blobs, are drawn worse than most 10 year old kids could draw, and/or that most older kids should at the very least, easily understand that the horse was very poorly drawn. In addition, I have noticed Howrse seems to be putting (almost purposely IMHO) the badly drawn ones in the voting groups of three and at the same time, with well drawn/beautiful ones together. It seems I am constantly asked to vote for stuff I would never in buy and at the same time asked to choose which of three that I would buy all three if given the option. I know we all have different tastes. However, judging from what I see popular, I am perplexed that they seem like they are purposely making it difficult for true art that members will want to pay for to get through. I don’t even understand how many of these get through they are so poorly drawn, or look like dozens of other horses they have, yet am told by many that their true are is being turned down for reasons that change or make no sense. Hope this isn’t too out of place, I didn’t know where else to post it.
