Origami art - horse novel cover

 Cover artwork for 'The Subtle Art of Keeping a Racehorse.'

I had a cover art idea for my new YA novel but I have realised that I need a lot more practise. And I mean a lot!

Left is my first attempt so hopefully you can already see the improvements!
I have found the instructions for an origami horse, but believe me, it's harder than it looks. I felt really clumsy making it. I also realised tonight that my origami paper is in fact not origami! It's just craft paper and too thick but good for practising with until the real paper arrives!

I have plenty of time to practise before the novel is finished (currently finishing first draft), so hopefully you'll see origami art improvements. Will keep posting updates on my cover progress!
