Chariots of Fire by inanna-nakano Chariots of Fire by inanna-nakano
I've had this idea in my head for awhile; ever since I watched the Spirit DVD extra and hearing the artist's comment, "His legs are kinda like, stiletto heels... heh."

So here you have it, a horse with "heels."

edit: It's anatomy wasn't really made to match a real horse's. It's front legs are supposed to resemble a woman's legs, exaggerated almost to a cartoonish point. Hense the knee-like anatomy structure and curves.
Also.. its far front leg is supposed to be heald up really far and close up to its body in a powerful strut as if its about to forcefully stomp whatever's in front of it. Its not short, it's heald extremely close to its body.

I wasn't aiming for *real* horse anatomy when I drew this. Hense the flaming hooves, mech-like face, semi-transparent neck, spiderweb-ish shoulders, etc.

And also, just because I was inspired by the "How to Draw Spirit" section doesn't mean I copied the drawing on the TV :P I mean seriously, is spirit a damon horse with flaming hooves? Come on.

edit.. again: Its far front leg is supposed to be like this! [link] I was going for a kind of demon/horse anatomy theme when I drew this so it's foreleg is recoiled hard.

I love this picture, but to quote my friend:
"It looks pointy. . . like the church!"
I worry for her soul.

Friend speaking:
It's really pretty! <3

Back to me:
She's trying to come up with constructive critism, but all she has is:
"You can improve . . . on . . . pointy? D:"
