Furioso-North Star Stallion

The Furioso-North Star is a Hungarian breed named after its two foundation sires, North-Star and Furioso. Many thanks to Janina Suuronen for the use fo her fantastic reference photograph.

I had originally planned to add a background, but I found the natural colour of the pastel paper worked well against the horse’s grey colouring and would not pose a risk of being a distraction.

I opted to add clouds of dust to help to convey the sense of movement.
