Unbelieveable! Stunning! Magnificent! Gorgeous! Incredible!

I LOVE the depth of your drawings and your perfect balance of shadows and highlights. One thing you have also mastered, which I still struggle with, is filling in the negative space around the horse to compiment the horse very well. I am just starting to shade around my subjects, but don't quite have a grasp on it in order to make the subject stand out more. For the most part I just leave the negative space alone, but I really like how the darker areas really make your subjects pop. If you have any advice on how to master this technique better, I'd really appreciate it.

Seconded! I saw your Gypsy in Equines in Art magazine... never did I think I would see you here! It's a real honor to have you among us, that's for sure. Your work is flawless and truly stunning; I found myself literally breathless, and then completely dumbfounded when I realized just who exactly you were. Seeing your work in the Spring 2011 issue, and then seeing you here, is simply a day-breaking event.

As you can clearly see, your reception to the forum is well-deserved as well as warm. I hope to see more of you around!

Jeez thanks guys! I'm happy to be here too. I rely basically on commissions at this point in my career, so I thought this would be a good place to post! As far as tips go, I'm pretty much self taught and it really is true, the more you practice the better you get. I always tell myself light against dark when I'm drawing.
