You are sitting in your room, looking at your gorgeous horses at Deviantart. You don't have a particular storyline in mind but you really like to draw something. You have no idea what to do. Sounds familiar? Well, here I have something that might get you some ideas.
It's a rough set up, and some combinations wouldn't make sense at all, but... maybe it bring you a good story? If you like to help to improve this, please, feel free to comment!
How does it work?
If you are familiar with the horse personality randomizer that Dane made together with some other DA'ers, then it's kinda in the same direction. You will see a couple of lists that together will make a guideline to draw something. Some combination absolutely do not make sense, but just click the random button again to make a better option.
What do I need?
Go to Random.org to get the random numbers to make a combination. Write it down or use a textdocument.
The "What to draw next?" HARPG Help Guide
Input the number of horses you got in your stable and the number you got (for example) 5, means the 5th horse you have in your stable. You can also leave out the horses you already drew lately.
Input the number of human charries you got in your stable and the number you got (for example) 1, means the 1st human charrie you have in your stable. You can also leave out the humans you already drew lately. Or don't draw a human at all, depending on the results.

Okay, let's see:
I got 5, 5, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 1 and 1 as my results, wich means for me that I draw Bird House (I have a list of the horses who need to be drawn and he is the fifth) and Chase in the city, while it's clouded, during the evening, having a pleasure ride, standing halt. Bird House is content, and my rider is happy and they are accompanied by one of the dogs.
Hope it's helpfull for you guys, I sure know it's helpfull to me! Have any suggestions? Feel free to share them! Have fun drawing!!!
