    Wow that is so good! Especially for your first time. I also recently had my first try at soft pastels and yeah I gave up haha, they can be really frustrating and it didnt help that I had bad paper for it. Keep trying with them I have a feeling you willl get really good at them! Make sure you keep giving us updates! :)

    Really good!!

    One thing I have found to work well for blending is tissue paper.

    Caitlin- The paper for it makes it even more frustrating, it managed to grab and hold the pastel. But trying to get the color into the texture to make it look more solid is difficult.

    HCT - Ah, I haven't used that, I'll have to try. I've been bouncing back and forth between fingers, kneaded eraser and que-tips.

    Its taking a lot of effort to not give up. But I've been just messing with them trying to just figure it out. I'm also making myself practice drawing people. The drawing is of my 11 year old cousin.

    That pastel stuff looks good! Looks like your starting to get the hang of colours. Especially with the hair and sphere.
    Im starting to draw people as well! I love the one of your cousin . One thing I would say is maybe try and blend in the cheeks in more ususally the skin is really smooth but other than that love it!

    I don't know, I don't see colors like other people do. I can see light and dark pretty well, but mixing and matching colors? Nope. The sphere was just light and dark. Finding the light source then working with shading.

    Yeah I see that. Soon as I was done I realized I had shaded way too dark and any attempt to fix that would make him look darker skinned when he is really white. People are just so hard, maybe because its just so easy to point out the flaws in a drawing compared to horses and what not.

    Most recent one done for Caitlinpalomino. Focused on how to get correct colors. A lot of purple, red and yellow, very little brown and most of the black is in the mane. Had fun with this working on layering and really getting the pastels to work for me.

    Thank you! I was so happy to actually be able to get a blood bay color look to him. The highlight ares are still wonky and I didn't do a very good job with proportions. But I'm happy with the general colors and blending. Now to just get all of those into one! Lol. Your welcome and thank you for letting me draw the pretty boy.

    I've been pretty busy and have been unable to draw due to a move and school starting.

    I just started a new piece today. I actually am doing something more than just a horse. I'm adding a calf and a rider....good gosh I think I have bitten off too much. But I had an image in mind and wanted to go through with it

    Here is where I am so far: I'm about two hours into it (I had to redo the calf cause I was off on the depth perception)
