Elaine Lighten- I had the exact same problem for years. I used to be so afraid of messing up that I never took chances and everything was always uniform and...lifeless. But now that I've sort of come out of my shell a little bit, I find that I can do much more than I used to!
Cacowgirl- thanks! That pack horse was the very first time that I tried to draw a horse lying down, and I was rather nervouse, but I think it turned out pretty nice for a first!
Just for the heck of it- two more.
My first attempt at a goat. Not sure if I got the proportions right. This is Akins, our newly added therapy goat. He's quite the character!
And a cart pony. I really don't like how I did the muzzle. Might re-try this one.
Thank you! That means a lot to me :) And I'm sure that with practice, you could become a good artist! You don't have to have talent to do what you love, you just have to do what you love to have a talent :P
