    Well I'll start to think about that then. Would be very nice to have money to buy more art supplies. I am finding that I keep running out of paper very fast! I'm also noticing that the charcoal pencils are going to go by fast as well.

    I wouldn't think that it would just be a mechanical pencil! Or on such a small piece of paper either. They softness in the muscles is just great.

    Finished with the horses themselves, Now I'm just battling with the idea of adding a background or a shadow to both...I don't have a good blending tool other than my fingers... Hrm.

    My camera made the photo look fuzzy, I'm going to try and take pictures in the sunlight tomorrow.

    But here is Jessie vs. the drawing.

    Wow, Jake has some cool markings. Nice job!

    If you don't have blending sticks, you can use q-tips to blend. Be careful with using your fingers because the oil in your skin can mess with the pencil. I use a combo of q-tips and blending sticks. I use q-tips for covering broad areas and blending sticks for more detailed areas like around the eyes, ears and muzzel. It's fun to experiment with different materials and techniques

    Thank you! He has a lot of neat little markings. ^_^

    Aw that's good to know! Gotta love those little cheats.

    Yeah, it's been a lot of trial and error and picking up tips from other artists. I've learned a great deal just in this forum.

    Trying to branch out a bit. Keep telling myself to back off from only drawing horses. The scanner keeps killing detail and my camera died so its iPhone for a little while...

    I wasn't even going to post this but then thought it might be fun to take a picture to show progress for hopefully when I get better.

    I have never tried soft (chalk) pastels before, only oil. I just got some for christmas and foun them to be more than frustrating. I sense it is a bit of a challenge for me, plus as I am feel more confident with shading in I'm takling another problem I have. I have close to no idea how colors work and how to make them match up with a reference photo. This piece was supposed to be a light bay, instead I have a dark brown....I gave up on the nose. Might try another piece in the morning if I'm not still angry by then.
