plena ignis

Iustus amo passio fructum
It was a really... really bad idea to resize the horse... I guess doesn't look as good as I expected... But who knows, maybe this silly arabian muzzle is still charming. It took me a bunch of time and a bunch of nerves to finish this piece. A really large bunch of nerves...

Wow! It's sooo amazing!! I love it! Heart 

If you don't mind me asking, do you have any tip about drawing realistic? I have tried many different ways, but i can't find what fits me the best.. I usually to use the round soft brush, but everything just looks so blurry.. And I don't like the hard edged brush so much (I just can't handle that brush xD) I know that practice makes perfect, but I don't know what to practice xD I would love if you could help me a little bit :)

Hey there, thank you very much :aww:

Well, sure, i will try to explain some ways that i use. i cant promise that they will work for you, and there are probably many better techniques and tutorials, but i will speak from my amateur experience Cx
Realism is full of little details. I personally prefer hyper-realism, which means even more details. If you are some sort of perfectionist - then this style wont be a great pain for you. But be ready to spend numerous hours on your drawing, because in our case, every little detail matters.
Realism is most of the time built on photography. Using references is okay. Even greatest artists in history used references, by looking at the object they were drawing. Tracing over references is not okay. If you cant draw without tracing the picture - that means you are trying to jump over your head. Take your time and practice anatomy, shading and all this stuff. Once you feel ready to perfectly redraw a photography, there is a good technique called gridding, you can find many tutorials explaining what it is. Its probably the only and the best way to fit everything in place. Here comes the perfectionist part. If you go and try to create a serious, realistic drawings, that means the anatomy needs to be better than just decent. Otherwise your object will look weird and ridiculous.
Now when we have our shapes placed and gridded, you need to fill them with colour. You can go black and white, it doesnt really matter. What matters is to overcome the desire to pick all the colours from photo with picker. I've done it before, and this particular drawing you commented under, was drawn this way, via picking all colours from photo. Its nothing to be proud of. Beside that, later time it will be hard to teach yourself to stop doing that and start using your head. So i would recommend to begin with it, begin with thinking and choosing the colours by yourself, without picking them from photo, but only looking at the photo. 
As you could notice, i mentioned photo many times. because thats the source which will teach you the way colours in our world work, so later you wont need a photo to paint a realistic piece
Well, i think thats all i have to say. i am sure i forgot to mention many things, but i hope it was helpful in any way.

How long does a horse like this take?
And how many years did you train to become that good?

It took me about 19 hours, i guess? This drawing was based on photo though :) Drawing has been hobby all my life, but it became my true passion only five years ago

Just five years? Because your art is amazing....
