Uhh..usually anywhere from 3 to 7 hours. All depending on color, pose (if I need to study refs or such), and if there's any markings. Headshots (I haveto finish three sometime soon) actually take longer since with the heads being so detailed, and them being the main point I like to do even more shading and blending, which takes some time, lol.

I actually started doing them without my tablet, I only recently got it at Christmas of 09. Beforehand I just used a mouse. It's a lot trickier, and a lot more time consuming, but it can definitely be done. :p

Your definition of tone and muscles along with the finest details make memorially love these drawing! They look superb and I can't wait to see more from you. Do you have a deviantart by any chance?

GIMP is a great free program, which is what I used for the first one. I've been using it for about 5 years and I love it, much easier to figure out than Photoshop (Elements 7.0, used on the second one). I actually ended up teaching my design art class how to use it since my teacher had no clue how to use it. XD He gave the assignments and I went around helping after I finished mine real quick. :p
I do have a dA account, my name is Lead-Mare-Art. I usually update all my forum art posts and boards before I get to updating it though, because it tends to attack all the computers I use with virus' other than the school computers. ;; And thank you. I'm liking this style more and more as I use it, lol.

Looks good. Only it doesn't look blood bay. Looks more like a sooty chestnut sorrel. If you were going for a bay look I would have darkened the points (i.e. The legs since the legs scream red and not chestnut).

Just read you started with a mouse and that's what I darted out with too before I got my tablet a year ago. I'm Heaven-at-Night-123 on dA I'll have to look you up when I get home!

Thanks.(:
I actually noticed that while I was on my aunt's computer this weekend..I guess the screen I did it on was darker, as the points look black on that computer and it actually looks like a bay, and it looks as you described on my aunt's computer. :/ I'll probably go back and fix them when I get a chance this week.
And that's cool.(: I'll look you up too once I get a chance to use the school computers.
