This last one is INCREDIBLE! The difference one drawing made is so good. The fur looks purposefully placed and nice and soft. I am so jealous!!

That is just amazing... how you get the fur detail so good is beyond me. I guess I'll keep trying but I have a hard time understanding it. I also have trouble with dog mouths, which you did so well. Awesome job...

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**

Caitlin, Its funny how sometimes it seems that you can put out one piece that amazes yourself. Lol Now the problem just becomes, can I repeat it? ;)

Thanks iloverains. Right now I am focusing on things other than horses but when I get back to it I'll definitely be going through what you have.

HCT - Its very very hard! Especially since fur never lays flat or the same way, some sticks straight up, some is wavy some clumps together. You have to learn them ALL to put it together nicely. >.> Forcing myself to practice it is the only thing that helps. That and really studying pictures of long furred animals. Thank you!

The clumpy/wet fur may really help me develop my fur skills....or I may bomb it, but we'll see. Haha

I love not working on the weekends, gives me tons of free time. Here is the next out, I was going to do the full dog but decided against it. Primarily white charcoal with a little black and then some soft pastel for the eye. Went a little heavy on he black in the fur, but oh well. I'm happy with it. Only took me about an hour too.
