Paper bags. Lots
of paper bags :-). That's mostly because I have been saving a few of them up. I have a Snapey bag (just one, alas) for tomorrow, but today's batch is Gawain-themed. And has quite a few horses in it.
Horses are really important in a comic about knights. If the horses look bad, the knights look bad too. Unfortunately the critters aren't really easy to draw, and when you have to place human beings on their backs, it gets even worse. Or so I think. Moreover, Gawain's horse is special. It's famous
. I know only two Arthurian horses by name: Arthur's mare Llamrei and Gawain's stallion Gringalet. The funny name is a French version of the Welsh Keincaled. In any case, Gawain's horse is quite consistently named; it's almost a character in its own right. So I'm working hard at getting it to look good. I still have a way to go, but for the first time I'm thinking that I may actually get there in the end :-).( Princes, Kings and Horsies )
