roachpatrol:

hi dude! ok, i traced out how i see the main Chunks Of Horse.

they got weird pecs up front, that slot into kind of a pentagon shape. the biceps wrap around. there’s that kind of notch where the front arm/leg goes in at the elbow, which is almost always level with the ribcage/chest. don’t draw the front leg going too high up it looks super weird when people do that. 

image

the butt scrunches in back when compressed by a standing or gathered back leg, and streches when the leg’s extended, but the top of the butt from the tail up to the hips is generally angular. also, the back ankle is a bit above the front wrist. it varies by breed. 

image

note the deep triangular indents where the neck muscles connect to the shoulders, and again where the thighs/haunches and the hips meet under the skin. though the muscles of the butt and shoulders are bunchy and dramatic, the legs don’t stick out from the body until the elbow and knee, pretty much. 

hope this helps!

lang-8.com is well known amongst intermediate/advanced language learners who are self-taught, but I thought I’d explain it for beginners. It is an amazingly useful site where you can blog or upload any text you’ve written in the language you’re learning. Many people use it as a diary, though I’ve seen people check essays and business emails there too.

Once the text is uploaded native speakers of the language will check it for you. You return the favour by checking pieces of work written in your native language and correcting them. In this way everyone gets their work marked by a native speaker (often more than one person contributes so you can get several opinions too).

It is massively helpful in improving all aspects of writing, but natural usage in particular (notoriously difficult for self learners to pick up when they are not in a native environment).

Gwen, #1 requested by clue-lingforlooks for this colour meme! I’ve neglected to draw the ladies of Merlin (like, EVER) so this was a nice change. Might be trying Morgana next? Won’t be taking any more requests, though, sorry! Glad you guys have been enjoying my contributions, sketchy as they are. Thanks for all the love! <3 (My Art Tag)
