I've been working on a dog painting and needed to get back to horses, so I sketched out this horse with my crayola pencils (didn't want to waste the prismacolors). It's 5 x 7 inches. I tried a new technique where I filled in the backrgound with a sharpie pen and then went back over it with colored pencil. It's something someone suggested to me when I mentioned having a hard time doing backgrounds. Kind of a cool technique.

You do great work. I love the way color pencils and ink together. It takes a lot of patience to work in that media.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Would that be Roscoe?

Both are just lovely, Liz! I should start with some colour - when I get some frigging time to experiment!
Question: what is the difference from a 'mechanical pencil' to graphite ones? (See how untrained I am!!)

As a matter of fact it is Roscoe! How did you know? I am a member of an equine artist group on facebook and we all picked one picture to draw/paint/sculpt from. Someone posted a picture of a horse named Roscoe (can't remember who posted it). This was my rendition of him. Are you in that group as well?

That reminds me, I've been meaning to get a similar project going in this group, but have been so flippin busy.

I'm a member of that same group; just saw your post there. That project is a really novel idea. Just need to get off my butt and work on my entry...

And if I may --

Mechanical pencils are the "pump lead" ones, usually made of plastic. Most of them are #2/HB, but I'm seeing the other lead weights put into mechanical pencils, too. They're just not the traditional wood, "sharpen me up" pencils!
