    They haven't given me a set space yet, so basically they've said just write out a 'blurb' about yourself and they'll edit it etc. And then a section of art tips. So I guess I just write as the best ones I can come up with.
    Doing a step by step guide is a good idea, my problem with that though, is that I am so finicky with my work that it may get too complicated for a child to follow. I'll have a little play around and see what I can come up with, that isn't too complicated!

    The step-by-step things could also be very basic, like "how to get the right shape for an eye", "how to draw a hoof" or "how to draw an arabian (convex profile), a pony (small ears, short head), a warmblood (long face, robust structure) and a draft (roman nose and whatnot)" type of diagram/walkthrough. Also, I was thinking that if you have full colour, a "how to colour chestnut, bay, black, grey, whatnot horses" list/diagram with a "colour this" copyable lineart could be nice. :)

    I remember when I was a kid, I used to get so bored with those "how to draw a horse using circles" things because they rarely went into details (ears, eyes, hooves, etc.) and never got to that "what colours to use on a palomino" stage. So if you're doing something like a step-by-step guide, I vote for details rather than just "how to draw a horse". Also, keeping them to just that linework level might help you with the high standards issue. ;)

    Hope you'll find your inspiration before the deadline!

    I like this post a lot...think it's a good idea. The bit about colors for palomino, roan, etc is awesome. Especially when you've made comments before on what colors you use in layering-you lose me at the get-go pretty much =)

    Thanks so much for that!! Very good idea! However again, because I work in pastels I will use so many colours that I get lost myself, but I can certainly give a description of the absolute basic colours to use for generic colours.
