Howard the Horse

Some simple doodles of Howard, the Horse that pulls Mr. Gumpox's garbage wagon.

That one on the left is really great. I feel like I could just wrap my arm around it. Just a quick question: do you sketch the image and then do the marker shading or is it the other way around. Wouldn't mind trying it myself.

I generally sketch it pretty loosely with the grey marker, and try to save any shading till after I've gotten the black linework inplace. The linework is where I really nail down the actual form, so I don't necessarily know where shadows should be until that's done.

Somehow, I had missed Howard until today! Nice! :)
