Hey lilruffian. You should post your first attempts. I'd love to see them. I would post mine if I had them. I really would. :)
If you really want to see... I wont fill up the OP's thread though lol I'll post a few on my Wildest Art thread

Your hair is really pretty! Is your hair naturally curly? Mine is.

You did fantastic!!! You perfectly captured the shape of your horse's face.

Do you want some tips on how to blend? I've drawn horses professionally for years. :)

I was just like you when I was younger. I could get down the basic shape of things, but could never make it look real enough. Then I had the BEST high school art teacher who told me to always get rid of my lines. LOL. I know that sounds funny--and I'm hope I can explain this right--but you should always try to get rid of the lines around your drawings. You do this by using your smuding technique (so you have THICK swipes of dark--not a line) and by contrasting your drawing to your background.

If you look at the drawing below, you'll see what I mean. Look at the nose piece of the halter. Look at how I used the dark backround of the pipe panel to show the shape of the halter nose piece. There's no l"outline". If you look up further, near the horse's eye, I did the same thing. You can clearly see where I used a smudgy line to show the outline of the horse's face, but then--by the forelock--that line disappears. I used the ground behind the horse then....



Now, the exception to this rule is tack--bridles, halters and what not. There you really need DARK lines--which are actually shadows--and tiny, barely there lines along the leading edge of the tack where the sun shines. Does that makes sense? So one edge will have a thin, barely-there line, and the other edge will be dark-dark-dark. This will give you the 3D effect.

I'm not sure if you can see the detail on the drawing above since it's so tiny, and so here's a link to my art work photo album. You can click on the appropriate picture to see what I mean.

you did a great job explainging that. If only my art instructor explained it that good back when I was in school.

Edited to add: angelwithoutwings54 you did a great job for a first try.
