Hiram Horse Bio

Now it just downright wouldn't be proper for the Sheriff of Roosterpoot not to have a horse...


I've got some stuff in mind already, just wanted to get the design down tonight.

Thanks fellas! I like the overall look but it still needs refining. Now that I look at it after a night's sleep it looks a little too much like a cow for me... Might have to tone the mouth down a bit or contour his body more like a horse. I like the over exaggerated houth so I'll play with the body first.

John I gotta thank you for your version of Hiram as well. I tried to avoid just copying what you did, but I definitely used it for reference on a number of places. You've definitely got a great eye for suggesting shapes with lines. I got a new appreciation for that when I tried the Henry Hawk/Foghorn Leghorn pic. Anyway, that pic & even more so your pic of Hiram were extremely helpful, so thanks again. :)

Hey pat when I get home tonight.....and near a scanner hahaha if you don't mind I'll send you some examples of what you can do to help you with your design of Hiram. I know as an artist as we all do when you do decide on a character that it will morph over time because we tend to refine what we draw all the time. Great example is look at Garfield the cat. When he was first created he looked nothing of what he looks like today. you can even see suttle changes in Popeye from his first episodes to what people know him as in any media today. Mind you even Mickey Mouse changed dramaticly even his name hahahahaha
all I'd like to do is give you some Ideas that you can work with to build upon. It's totally up to you my freind.

I'd love to see what ya come up with. I just refined him a bit more & made another post. Not sure that I'm committed to the color scheme I used, but I think the overall shape is improved.

Look forward to your ideas.
