Looks awesome, Liz - especially for being so massive AND a new texture of paper. Those aren't easy conditions to work with! Can't wait to see the finished product; I really enjoy your style. :)

You crazy girl liz! You always pick the difficult subjects don't you :P But you manage to pull them off every **** time!!! Can't wait to see the finished product, I'm dreading the day someone wants a drawing of their horse laying down... I'll be running to you for help!

Thank you everybody. I did have quite a hard time with the proportions in the beginning, espceically on such a large piece of paper. I am putting this drawing aside until I finish another drawing that I was working on long before I started this one. Stay tuned!

So I am sick right now, but between dizzy spells I was able to put quite a bit more work into the mare’s face, laying down some darker tones. I got started on the shoulder area and some of the grass and right front leg. I whipped out what’s called an "ebony pencil", which is apparently a jet black gaphite pencil and played around a bit in the mane, ears, and around the eye.

There is a glare from the camera...I need to figure out how to take a good picture of these larger drawings since they are too big for my scanner

Beautifull Liz :)

And when you find out how to take good photo's of bigger drawings, please let me know! I still struggle, all of my photo's have glare from the camera which then removes a heap of the detail in my work. And most of my drawings I can't scan anyway because they're pastel!

Add me to your list when you find out how to take a decent picture. That's turning into the most frustrating part of the process for me. I was proud of myself for upgrading to bigger drawings but they don't fit in the scanner.

Well, I am still trying to figure out camera settings and finding the best way to take a picture of this drawing. The paper really is "white". Anyway, I am "almost done with the mare's face and have begun the first layers on the foal. I'd have to say the most tedious part of this drawing has got to be the grass...lol.
