The 'A' Team by OakBrookeStables
The 'A' Team
And finally you guys all have an idea as to what all these characters look like! :la:
Hopefully this will lead to good things and make me do more storyline based art :D
Please let me know if you think I should add more to the info sheet or if anything doesn't make sense ^^

From left to right;

Name: Olly Waters
Age: 26
Height: 6'2"
Discipline: Cross country
Olly was brought up on a sheep farm with a few Clydesdales that were working animals. He loves the outdoors and would happily be out in the freezing cold all day. He joined the pony club as a teenager on one of the clydesdales and has always enjoyed training them up and competing with them. Olly later went on to horse college where he got to ride more refined horses and worked his way through the showing ranks to become one of the best cross country riders in the country.
Olly is hard working but has a good sense of humour although can be a bit snappy when he gets stressed. He joined the team just after Elly became paralysed so her helped her through some of her toughest times and she knows that he will always be there if she needs anything. 

Name: Elly Baird 
Age: 29
Height: 5'8"
Discipline: Dressage (Stable owner)
Elly is a very kind and generous person who lives life to the full. She is naturally confident on the outside but can be controlling as she likes her order and routines but this makes her very good at managing the business and paperwork side of the stables. On the inside she is very reclusive and needs her alone time every day to get away from it all by playing her piano.
She became paralysed at the age of 26, after being bucked off on a beach ride. It has reminded her what you have to make the most of what you have got is and made her pursue her dream to breed and show the best Dutch Warmbloods in the world.
Elly's attitude to life came about after her mum was diagnosed, and ultimately died of cancer. This impacted her unimaginably as her dad had left them when she was too young to remember, leaving her at the age of 16 she was left to fend for herself, so she turned to the only thing she knew - horses.

Name: Skye Fall
Age: 23
Height: 5'10"
Discipline: Eventer
Skye is the newest member of the team but has slotted right in. She is a little shy and reserved about personal matters but as she gains their trust she begins to become more open. She worries a lot, about everything. Whether it is just putting a horse out she worries that she didn't tie the rug right or that she hurt someone's feelings. She is slowly getting better as Elly is trying to help Skye channel all her worries to help her become a better rider and self-critique when she is out on the courses but the worry is still here. Despite this she is a very supportive friend and a keen baker which keeps the troops in good spirits!
Skye takes more of a natural horsemanship approach to her work, after her mum bought her a horse that was too much for her to handle when she was a teenager. Skye was determined that she was not going to give up and tried all the methods that she knew, which wasn't many at 15, when finally a trainer suggested natural horsemanship. It is a longer process but by the end of it she had formed a very trusting relationship with the horse and Skye knew that she would like to pursue a career in horses given the chance.

FOR SALE - OBS Don't I Look Dapper?

SOLD - OBS Don't I Look Dapper? by OakBrookeStables

Don't I Look Dapper, Lily, is a lovely little filly out of  DWB Dapper x DWB Spirited Away . She was purchased at 6 months and left to mature out. We have since started her training and so far we can tell that she has a sensible head, one that would be suited to both show jumping and dressage. 
She currently liked the variety brought about in her training regime but would do well in a single discipline too when she has matured out more.
We have desensitized her to a variety of things including farm traffic, plastic sheets/bags and she has no problem with loading or with the farrier/vet. She did have to get sedated for the dentist though.
Lily currently stands at 17hh and is a full bred KWPN.
She also has two competitions which she competed in as a foal. She placed first in a full show and 3rd/Grand Champion in a mini show.

We are looking for  300:points: or 2 fullbody training images with backgrounds. Other payment can be discussed via note.

how did you get so good
OakBrookeStables Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Aw thanks. :3 Honestly practice is the key but there are some things you can do to help speed up your improvement. If you are unfamiliar with anatomy try looking at references, or even draw shapes over a few photographs and then try and redraw the shapes on your page! You can also look at other artist's work. See if they have any tutorials up and if not you can ask them if they do any join.mes and quiz them there. Generally people are very open to giving out tips. 
You could also ask for critique from some artists. Note them your drawing and ask if they would be able to do a redline for you (for anatomy) or point out anything to do with lighting, colouring and shading.
Personally, at the moment I am looking at ways to improve my people, so they are frequenting in my art a little more so I can practice! :)
