Thankyou Equusketch! Hmm I don't know I might spend the next few months just trying to get a more realistic look and just keep working on these drawings. Maybe then I might offer commisions, I don't know I would like to start them only after I feel like they are good enough if you get what I mean haha.

Anyway Here is the chestnut done!

On the top Picture^^ I took it at a slight angle so the proportions look off but they are better in real life. Also my printer isnt great and the actual photo on the computer is more like the drawing (a more orange colour). I know these sound like excuses but they are true haha.

Absolutely fantastic! What was this you were telling me about drawing tack? It all looks great and in motion. You can really tell the horse is running and exerting itself. Great job. They eye is great as well, really makes it stand out.

How big is this?

Thankyou horsedontlie! I still hate doing tack! I pretty much make it up as I go along good thing about colour though is I can add blue to it and it gives it a more realistic look. This is about 6x 8 inches (I think).

1st picture- So here is another one I have done. There are a few things that are buggin me but I've put it away and called it finished.

2nd picture- Here is the next one I am working on. Its an arabian. The eye looks weird close up (I made the actual eye part to big ) But if you stand at a little distance it looks okay.

On average I am spending about 4-5 hours on these and seeing as I am on holidays that means a drawing done every day and a half.

Amazing. Those are absolutely fantastic! You have the veins and highlights and expression... everything is in there. You really could do commissions. I'm your age and couldn't come close!

Thanks Horsecrazyteen!

Here are the latest two. My first dog It was a lot harder than I thought. I stuffed up the shape of the head. I have a bad habit of not checking the referece photo as I go. And the second one is an arabian that I did.

Anyone got any tips on how to do dog fur?

Great dog! Good to see that you're branching out too! In color as well. I haven't really touched true colors since I tried drawing that pastel piece for you. ;) And the arabian is phenomenal.

Wish I could give you tips on fur but i'm not sure that I can explain well enough. Only that I have noticed that dogs have layers of clumps of fur. For example the Shepard piece I did. I haven't done a great job, but the light colored fur around the eyes lays on top of the darker fur on the forehead. Then I tried to make it look like a lot of layers for the ears. Unlinking shading with horses which becomes blocky and blended in. Think more about the mane, how you can see in between the strands of hair to the fur below. How multiples hairs will clump together to make a larger looking strand. If it was the same color it would start to leave shadows. Think of the fur clumping together a bit more to layer over the top. Then these clumps stack kind of like fish scales. This is what I try to do now. Multiple strands on hair make up a clump.

I wonder if that makes any sense.....

Wow Caitlin I really like your drawings! The colours are very realistic and I love your attention to detail. I think you're more than good enough to do commissions. Thanks for sharing these lovely drawings.
