Talking The Finished Drawing...

And I'm pretty proud of how it turned out

I made an earler thread for a critique on it halfway done, but I'll post the process pictures too. (And thanks to those who gave advice on that other thread!)

The reference photo:

The Halfway Done photo:

And last but not least, the final product! I think I'll darken the eyes and hooves a tad bit, since they don't seem to "match" the dark color of the horse. Otherwise I think its finished:

Not too bad! Pencil crayon can be a bit tricky because it's not easy to cover up if you make a mistake.
Only thing i might suggest is dont be afraid to darken up the shadowy parts. You can do it in layers until it seems the right shade & make certain areas darker than others ;)

^ So true!!! Up above the left eye I made the accent mark a little too dark, and it kinda looks like she has an angry eye. I'm hoping I can make it look less dark by making the eyes darker and coloring over it with some brown.

I agree with Lilruffian. YOu may want to increase the difference between the lightest lights and the darkest darks. Think of it this way, if you took a picture of it in black and white, would it read well? It's important to have not only variation in color, but variation is value (dark vs light) as well.

As you knowl, since I work only in b/w I am very much focussed on value. Working in color sometimes buffaloes me, though I appreciate it when others do the work!

Your friend will truly be tickled to recieve such a gift.

Thanks for the advice guys! Well, girls

I'm going to "tinker" with it a bit and see if I can't get some more difference in the dark/light differences.

And I hope he likes it. He doesn't have a clue I've drawn it...so shhh! It's a secret

That is awesome!
Would have loved to seen a black and white version with just shades of black. :P

Looks great, for some reason it reminds me of cubist artwork. :)
