Post FREE- Sketches of your Best Friends.

Hello everybody!

So. I recently stumbled along this catagory and thought 'hey! This might be fun' when I saw that some people were making paintings/drawings and selling them. I've been drawing horses for the past six or seven years and the idea of taking someone else's beloved friend and portraying it in my art, it appealed to me greatly. Since I'm hardly more than what I'd consider intermediate, I'm not willing to 'sell' my work, but I would LOVE to sketch for you at no price other than a picture of your lovely animal. At the moment I am only willing to do pencil sketches, but my sketches are fully shades and -hopefully- satisfactory.

I'm willing to do three different shots.

Head to Shoulder shots
9"x12"
a pencil sketch of your equine, cut off at the animal's withers.
Full Profile shots
9"x12"
a pencil sketch of your horse in full form
In-Action shots
9"x12"
a pencil sketch of your horse moving at either a walk, trot, canter, gallop, grazing, or jumping.

Next, choose whether you want a replica of the photo you give me, or if you want me to combine a few photos draw your horse doing something that is not shown in the photo.

Replicated Photo
You need to give me one picture of your horse in good light
(no night photos/blurry images),
doing exactly what you want him to be doing in the sketch.

Combination Photo
If you want a picture of your horse cantering through the field, but only have a photo of him standing still- thats alright. Choose this option.
You'll need to give me atleast two pictures of your horse in good light
(no night photos/blurry images), preferably one of him moving and one of him standing still so that I can capture him in the most realistic way.


Lastly, you need to choose the way that I get my sketch to you. I can either scan it and email it, or I can send it to you via snail mail. If it is scanned, you will not have the special paper I use and you might lose some of the detail, whereas directly sending it to you ensures a nice, clean sketch and the guarentee that it is the original. However, it is your choice and I will happily do either.


NOTE: Being that I am only fourteen years old, I hope that you will cut me a bit of slack when considering how long it takes me and how well the sketch turns out. I am willing to try to sketch something twice for you, but if you don't like version two, you will need to find someone else to draw for how. After all, its free x] Also, I DO NOT draw people with their horses unless they are for my own use only. I fail and drawing humans o.-

My sketches will be finished and sent out within 2-5 days of getting the request. Thankyou.

You have talent. If you have time, would you do either one of these pictures? His name is Bo, and I would love to have someone who is much better than I am draw him. Thank you.

Alright guys! I'm excited that I've gotten so much interest in me sketching for you! I have...4? requests now, so the last two will most likely take 5-7 days for me to finish. Also, I need you guys to tell me what kind of sketch you're wanting of the three. Just faces, full bodied, etc. I also need to know if you want it to be drawn exactly like the photos you gave me or not! I'll go ahead and work on the first one tonight =] once again thanks guys for letting me sketch your beauties! I'm so excited!

I would prefer a full body shot, but if you want to do up to the shoulder that is fine by me. I am pretty easy to please.

edited to add: you can leave the halter on, but if you dont mind not putting the stud chain and lead rope, I would appreciate that. Thanks
