I really would love to be able to capture the texture of fur the way so many people on here can. Unfortunately I don't think that or colour is something I will ever master haha

Thanks so much, everyone! :) Liz, I haven't been on Myspace in ages but you and I are indeed friends - I used to be in Barn Party and I think we talked a lot via that! :)
Midwestgirl, you go girl! I'm sure you'll have as much fun as I've been having! It is really satisfying to just be able to smeeeeeaaaar everything where it needs to be hahaha! My inner finger-painter is coming out... ;) Oh, and it's about 11x13.
ThatNinjaHorse - thank you! I've been drawing all my life in some capacity or another, but I started to get really disciplined about learning 'proper' techniques about four years ago. Before that, I was the queen of lineart and reaaally half-assed shading.
HowClever, I always thought the same thing. I'll try to dig up some stuff I drew a couple of years ago as an example - I was deathly afraid even of shading. I ended up making myself stare at a photograph and just keep working on the drawing until it had comparable depths and darks. Of course, it was still pretty horrendous, but once I realized that shading/color/playing with texture wouldn't kill me, I could refine my technique. I'm kind of a masochist and always introduce new concepts on 'important' pieces of art, but I really recommend having a sketchbook where you just work on little things that won't break your heart if they go wrong. Then you can build confidence with the various techniques. I really believe that anyone can draw/paint/whatever, it's just a confidence issue! :)
Wess- thank you! I adore your drawings; one of these days I want to tackle charcoal!

O I miss finger painting! I'm sure it'll be fun once I get going with it.
You haven't tried charcoal yet?! You're missin' out! I love it. Kinda the same principle with the smearing thing-sorta. Definitely one of my favorite mediums.

Haha I haven't! I'll have to get on that next. Sounds like lots of fun! :)

I'm getting so slow now - I don't want to mess up haha! :) On a bright note I picked up a block of actual pastel paper so my next project will be on color. (Which is good because it's a white horse haha)

You have the eye! Great job!

Soooo I fail, and I set the drawing down like a month ago and haven't picked it up again yet. Oops. It's like, five minutes away from being done, which is the worst part! Haha!
Buttt I started a new project which I'll hopefully finish today - it's Nyls du Terroir, an Intermediate event horse. He has such a great expression; I couldn't resist! :)
