That seems like a pretty legit toll booth.
I mean...they have a totally official looking sign and everything.... >_>
((I empathise with your horse related difficulties. I have to draw a carriage for something I'm working on right now and it's such a pain. :'( The forest lighting effects on this page look great though.))

Ha ha, the horses look fine. But I feel your pain. I didn't realize how hard they are to draw until I made all of these cowboys riding horses. Sheesh.

Know what I found that helps though is get a well sculpted model of a horse (like a Breyer or something) and use it for drawing from. Made things easier.

Or draw the carriage being pulled by mice instead. That works too.

Man, those cowboys. Who do they think they are? :/ But your horses always look great.

That is probably a good idea. I don't want my horses too realistic style-wise, but if all their legs were going the right way I'd be pretty happy.

(And we already know mice are useless at sewing so maybe this is the job for them)

Love the lighting on this page. :D Forests are always fun to draw hehe. So is that a common hair do for dwarves then? I like it.

Thank you! I was so proud when I figured it out. The other plus of forests is that they're much easier to draw than rooms and stupid buildings. :D

Yes, I can't imagine a dwarf man that would be caught dead without whiskers.

Horses are hard to draw, though! I think you did pretty good though :3

Aww horses came out well enough, but the light through the trees came out excellent!

Toll Dwarf, Jolly might know this fellow...

Well, thanks!

Yeah, this seems like a trick Jolly might have gotten in on in his wilder days.

Betting coffe? She must be pretty confident about it :)

Oh yes. She is always confident in her distrust of Dwarves.

The ponies aren't that bad. Just stick some cutey marks on their hindquarters... ;-)

Seems to me horses are a common animal in various art books, so it shouldn't be too hard to find good references.

Oh, I forgot the cutie marks! XP lol

Yeah, they kind of snuck up on me. Need to get some more horse practice...

Love the tree shadows!
Horses look fine, except maybe that white horse looks much smaller/lower to the ground than brown horse in panel 1.

Blegh, yeah it totally does. Good catch!

BANDITS!

Haha yes indeed. Humans love their clothes, Faeries love their guns, and Dwarves love their facial hair. XD
