    You are making leaps and bounds with your shading and overall depth of your drawings. I agree 100% with what Kayty said. I started out doing free sketches in myspace much like people do here in horseforum. Eventually people started asking be for the originals and I charged $15 (shipping was included). So in the beginning, I wasn't even advertising for commissions. They just sort of happened. If I were you, I'd continue to offer free sketches in here for a while and gain some more experience with different shots and horse colors and who knows, maybe someone will ask you for the original. Make sure to charge them for it though. Keep at it. You have natural talent!

    I am not asking for your secrets to your drawing :) I just have a couple of questions if that is alright!!!

    Do you just use a lead pencil for your shading?? If so what type of pencil is it??
    What do you use to make your "highlights" on your horse????

    Sorry but I just love your pictures and I need to work on my shading and highlights so I wanted to get some tips!!!

    THANX :)

    Thank you Equusketch I did do freebies once upon a time but people got too demanding wanting it done at that very moment when I had a few things to do, it was frustrating. With commissions I would be more inclined to do them quickly as I get somthing out of it. Not to sound selfish by that, do you know what I mean?

    Caitlin: I use a variety of shades of pencils for my drawings. In the darkest bit it is a 2B. And I do LOTS of layers. First off, a very light shade then I start at the nose and work my way down to the tail in a darker shade. I repeat this until I get near the shade I want and then I go through and do all the shading making the non shaded areas darker as I go.

    Highlights: I just keep the origional layer (the lightly shaded one) showing through a little and then "clean" it up with a putty rubber. Not that hard, you just have to make the highlights the right shape to make the horses muscles and shape look normal.

    Hope I have helped
