This was not done because I like war, but because of the ornateness of the gear horses wore in the Middle East and Asia in the past. The entirety of this 'outfit' was done to show the artistry that went into making the saddles and harnesses.
I think though that this is my best Ponyta to this day. This was done on cardstock (my preferred paper) using Prismacolor markers.
Process: Sketch with mechanical pencil, refine, ink with fine line markers, erase pencil, brush scraps off paper, color.
