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.
