    You do such beautiful, beautiful work! Prizmacolor oil pencil is my favorite medium...though when I went to HobbyLobby this past year to restock my supply, I couldn't find any of their oil pencils. There were just the standard colored pencils (also by Prizmacolor), but believe me, they are NOT the same. I went ahead and bought what I could find and used them, but was not happy with the result. Nothing on earth blends as beautifully as those oil pencils.

    Anyway, you do amazing work, dear! :)

    Thank you Kayty. That means a lot coming from you.

    I am taking a bit of a risk her in posting this picture as it's a baby gift for my friend and I don't know if she has a horseforum account. She has already seen the drawing before, but has no idea I touched up the drawing and am planning to frame and give it to her.

    I did this colored pencil drawing several years ago and decided to go back and add more layers as I did with th big portrait of my 3 horses. I may have to go through my other old pieces and rework them with some of the time I have between commissions.

    Here are the before and after pictures.

    Fantastic! Its really amazing what you can do when coming back to old drawings and doing touch ups. The difference is shocking!

    I have been working on a very fun project that I want to start using for advertising purposes so prospective clients can see my own creative interpretation of their pets via photographs provided. I found a collage making web site to come up with these photo/drawing comparisons. The only downside is that sometimes I make modifications per the owner's request or my own artist's judgement and I hope prospective clients don't look at these thinking "well, why didn't she include the bridle?" or "Why is the forelock/mane like that? It doesn't match the photograph." Perhaps I am reading too much into this. Still, I've seen other artists do this and I like the concept.

    I posted this picture in the art requests forum for FaceTheMusic, but wanted to share it in here as well because I decided to step out of my mechanical pencil comfort zone and played around with a 9B pencil I hadn't used before. I wanted to really capture the very dark tones in this high contrast picture, something I can't really accomplish with a plain old mechanical pencil. Because this was a small scale drawing (5 x 7"), I had to sharpen my pencil alot to get in the fine details, but I think I might want to use this pencil more often for commissioned work.
