Thanks, tinylilly, I hadn't noticed that at all until you mentioned it. I just had the moon centered because it was kind of the standard place to put it but you're definitely right about it making it harder to see the horse.

Perhaps, if you moved the moon to the right a little? Or, you could make the shadows of the trees radiate back toward the viewer, as the would with the light source in that location. Or, give the trees a "silver lining" as the moon would brighten one edge ofthem.

Just ideas. I don't do digital art so I have no idea if I am saying to do somethign easy or hard.

The pencil drawing is stunning! Very well done!

Thanks PintoTess :)

So I was going through my old paintings in my room and I finally got pictures taken of everything. Here are a some paintings that I did a couple years ago, they're not of horses but I thought it might be interesting to share them anyway.

"A Splash of Color"


Reba McEntire - 3 hour speed painting




A painting I did for my parents of my siblings and myself from a photo taken in 2004, I'm the one in the middle, lol. And yep, I have a twin sister. :)

I've been drawing horses for years, I think it just takes practice to get good at something so never give up! :)

Thank you :) All of those were oil paint, which is probably my favorite media at the moment. It takes a long time to wait for them to dry, but I really like how much you can work with color and light. I think pastel and charcoal are pretty close runner-ups though.
