why is one ear much darker than other? Not finished there yet? I would darken a bit more behind horse's right eye, just to pop it out a bit more to balance the other side a bit.
How big is this drawing? In inches or centimeters. I don't know A this or A that in paper sizes.

Hi tiny. Yeah the ear wasn't finished in the above photo. I've almost finished this drawing. Ergh it's taking me forever. I only get to work a few hours a day on drawing. I've done more shading on the horse's left side than this photo and I've added his whiskers aswell. This on 8x10" paper.

This is looking lovely Sarah :)

I would just add a bit more in the way of tonal values, though you have great detail, the horse isn't 'popping' off the page yet. Combine deeper tones with your level of detail, and you will have an absolute ripper of a drawing there!!

Thanks Kayty. Yes you are right, I start off too light on the paper 'afraid' I'm going to do it too dark, I think. Only it takes me longer this way because then I have to go over what I've done. Hrrumphh

Absolutely Ripper! I love that. I am going to start using that. May I, Kayty? I bet everyone in Oz says that, but around here I will get some odd looks if I use that, and I love odd looks!

Yes, more dark , more cow bell! The darkness of the nostrils need to be in some other spots.

Cannot believ that is 8 by 10 paper!? Then the image is only about 5 by 7? It looks like it must be much larger. The detail is exquisite! Just Ripper!

I love it when there is a phrase used in another country and another hasn't heard of it and it becomes a cool word. I remember once saying ''I'm chuffed'' to a yank, and he was like, 'er, is that good or bad?' lololol

Btw, if no-one knows what 'chuffed' means, it means 'I'm really pleased'.

OK...off......to....do.....more..........dark..... ...Zzzzzzzzz
