Costuming the Horse and Rider

Drawing a horse with a rider can be extremely difficult because of the proportion and balance between the two. In order to make this task fun, we're going to have a model on one of Ravendaisy's horses - here, Jenni sits sidesaddle on Ravenswing - both in period costume. Make sure you've got color media for this part of the workshop!
