This older post has resurfaced. Thank you all for your kind words. Laura, I am actually not very talented with color. It baffles me to no end. I also don't have any fine color tools. I have pastels but they are small and rather hard to do any details with due to their size and. I want some good water color and color pencils, but as of yet I just don't have anything. But I just finished a pastel piece a few days ago so I'll post it.
Godgirl, that was from a long time ago. The proportions are very off, the head is more of the issue than body length, its too small, by making the head large enough I would have made a deeper chest and balanced out the piece more. But thank you!
Two drawings for a girl that lost her beloved gelding a week or so ago. I'm pretty proud of the body for the pastel. Starting to understand it a bit better. But the head, mane and tail I over worked it to the point of no return. The face is too wide. The graphite drawing I took two hours on, and realized after finishing the head that the muzzle was too small. I didn't want to start over so I just finished it.
