    I use gimp and the only thing I can say for your last image would be to use the durn/dodge tool more and then blend blend blend in the direction the muscles and structure on the horse and I can see in your drawings that you do understand the structure and muscle shape of the horse. The back ground is done really nicely :)

    I've only really just started using my tablet so im no master also for your age its looking really good keep it up :)

    I've been using the blur tool for the blending of the layers. I've not have much success with the blend tool, but I suppose I've not figured out how to do it correctly yet. Digital drawings/paintings are a new realm for me, as I used to just stick to photo manips/edits and graphics.

    I don't quite get why you say that I should use the burn/dodge tool? How would that help me with the appearance?

    I've also just started taking full use of my tablet. It's difficult to work on perfecting!

    Thanks, I've been drawing horses since I was 8, working with graphic design since I was 17 and I'll be 20 this year. All I can do is learn what I'm doing wrong and work with that to improve. =)

    When I do a digital piece I put an all over base color down then from there the burn/dodge tool lightens the color or darkens it. So in the darker areas of the horse you could use the burn tool and it darkens your base color, then you can blend it with the base color in the way of the horse structure same thing goes with the dodge you can use that to pick out the glossy areas of the coat.

    I hope you know what I mean xD I wouldn't blame you if you never I'm terrible at explaining things D:

    I had to do a lot of little practice drawings with my tablet first I just couldn't get used to the slipperiness of it

    Ohhh. That makes a lot of sense! I've just been modifying the color on the swatch each time I need a different shade. It didn't cross my mind to use the burn/dodge tool for that! That would probably save me a lot of time.

    Haha, no worries. I appreciate the advice and tips.

    Yeah, It's really weird going from using a mouse or laptop touchpad for designs to using a tablet which is 100% accurate.
