Update on the colored pencil drawing. Right now I am just playing around with color combinations to match the horse's color as closely as possible. I am finding that purple works better than blue for the shading effects.
I'll try to post another update later this evening as I have put more work into it.

Progress as of today. I am almost finished with the face and am putting down the first layers of color in the neck. My scanner sort of washed out the nose, but there's more definition in the nose as well as in the blaze. I didn;t just leave it white as the image suggests, but rather layed down some subtle gray tones for shadowing effects. I find that scanned images never do the actual art complete justice. I am sure ya'll other artists would agree.

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

lildonkey8- lol, yes, there is a non colored jumping horse at the bottom of the picture. Once I am done with the head portrait, I will begin coloring the jumping shot.

If your doing them both different colors, one thing you could do is make the jumper look like Tanoka, she'd SO jump that! Just an idea though, I think it would be pretty neat

Lol, it would be cute except that this is a commissioned piece I am doing for someone else, so it will be of the same horse, just as an action shot.

Oh, hehe, that would've been cute if it wasn't.
Do you do free drawings?
