I'm trying to get back to drawing horses...

I have to say, it's been a few months/years since I've drawn a life-looking horse. I'm not sure why.

So, I sat down and sketched out a rough draft. I think I need to break it back down again, though.

Photos of the drawings were taken with my webcam, so I apologize that they look a bit skewed and distorted.

Drawings were done on plain sketch paper with a Dixon #2 pencil.

This first is the sketch (approximately 2 minutes of time). That I did about five minutes ago.


Second is Spirit! Haha, because I'm not sure why. Drawn a few weeks back:


Third is my most recent life-like drawing, but it's of a dog. Drawn a few weeks/months back.


Last is a sketch of my husband. I referenced a photo taken in 2004. :)


I just never seem to have spare time to draw, but I really need to get back into it because I enjoy it.

Critiques and comments are always welcome. :)

Wow, you are really, really good! I love the dog, what breed is he? It looks like an italian greyhound?

Would you like mire photos to draw? I would be happy to post some, lol. I won't be rude and post them unless you give me permission however :-D

Yup, it's an Italian Greyhound. I totally want one, but have a Chessie and a Setter instead. Haha!

Sure you can post a photo. Just one though, so choose wisely. ;)

1dog3cats17rodents - Okay, having a photo to reference I think is the key for me. I'm not quite satisfied, but I think I need to dig out the rest of my pencils and my charcoal. I can't get the depth I want using a regular #2 pencil.

Sorry, I also skipped his pretty hair. Haha, maybe in the future I'll do those perfect braids.
