Horse Riding

Postby LettuceBrick » Wed Apr 03, 2013 2:00 am

After seeing Karf Oohlu's and BMW_Indy's articulated horse rider legs, I decided to make my own version, but with a saddle. Little did I know that Karf beat me to it by two weeks! Anyway:

Hmmm... interesting technique and works well for what you're going for.
I'm not the biggest fan, but I feel like the TLC's horse already looks like someone is riding the horse and thought that the slot was a genius idea.
I'm wondering if there is a way to make the legs come closer together at the top so they look like they're spreading out from the torso a bit more.

Excellent! I've been wishing/brainstorming there was a way to do just this! Mind if I borrow this? Great job!

I have done some work with this type of ridding, never thought of attaching them with hands though. I think because your using the saddle it looks to far apart, try taking the saddle off?

It has been done without the saddle before and does look better that way. This was an attempt to make it work with a saddle; I agree the legs are odd looking.
