Foal Pencil Sketch [PIC]

I was inspired to draw today.. so I did. I used a regular pencil I found around the house and toilet paper to blend . I also made a failed attempt to shade.. I've never had any art classes, so that explains a lot

My scanner isn't working right now so here's the best picture I could get of it.

I like this one and I think you did it justice with the blending. I have never used toilet paper before, but another economical way to blend that has worked for me is to use cotton balls to blend large areas and q tips to blend smaller areas. I never leave a drawing blended because I feel that blending mutes the darker tones, so I generally go back and add more dark tones over the blended areas. Give that a try and I think this drawing will pop even more. I have never taken art classes either, but I just experiment "a lot" and take in advice from other more proficient artists who know a thing or two about technique. Great job!

Good work :)
And yep, I'm another one who hasn't had art classes before, and now I've got a busy wait list full of commissions to get done and my own business to go with it. Teaching yourself with a little guidance from others is a good way to go ;)
