Nakiska - Thank you so much! I'm glad other people see improvement as sometimes I get frustrated and think I'm not improving. I'm glad I inspired you! Drawing is such a stress reliever for me and I really enjoy it. I'm glad if other people pick it up too. ^-^

Caitlin - A little over two hours I think, but I never pay attention to the time.

Another one I did today : For some reason I like making the horses a lot stockier than they actually are and the heads are never long enough from the front. I really need to work more on doing straight on drawings rather than from the side.

I also grew very lazy for the hindquarters. I might try and go over it to fix it later but I don't know. I may just start something else.

Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.
The $25 horse I didn't want.

Love this one ^^ the muscle placement is spot on and I love how you didn't do all of the legs, just for something different! Nice work!

You say that like I intended to cut off the legs for artistic purposes . The reference photo stopped just below the knee and I was too lazy to try and free draw it.

Since I have always had a limit drawing capabilities I am forcing myself to draw other things, and the current subject its dogs! There is no forced order but before I get back to randomly drawing horses I should complete this list. The current plan is
  1. Dogs (0/5)
  2. Cats (0/5)
  3. People (0/4)
  4. Wild Animals (0/3)
  5. Inantimate Objects (0/3)
  6. Total (0/20)

The first sheet is the warm-up practice for legs and bone structure and proportions. Feel free to laugh. ;)



The second is a more serious study. The dog is some Shepard cross, so its not supposed to look like any specific breed.

That is a wicked Idea making yourself draw a certain amount of different subjects! I might steal that idea thanks.

I love the dogs! Nothing to laugh about at all they are superb. Can't wait to see this one ^^ done!

I've always just drawn horses, it gets very frustrating when you want to draw something else but its never to the same quality. So instead I'm forcing myself to do this. Its hard enough that I want to go crazy, but I guess it'll be good in the end. I'm already mostly done with this current one and had to stop because I'm getting frustrated over the fur. I don't get how people can make it so realistic.

Okay I am actually very proud of this one. I actually have some decent understanding of fur, how it lies and to make it look...not like a blob or just squiggly lines. Still got a long way to go, but it sure is a start!

2/5 Dogs done for project 2/20 total.
