That is sooo good!

How do you draw all the hairs?

Hi Thanks so much. I literally draw every single hair! Lol It makes it look more real that way, but it can get tedious hence why they take me so long to do

Sometimes I erase the hairs out with a putty eraser like I have done with this horse's forelock. I draw, erase, draw again and erase etc. It makes it look like real hair. I use charcoal and graphite together and blend too.

Thank you btw to whoever starred my thread x

Can I ask how long it ended up taking you? How big is it, and on what kind of paper? I like to visualize things in real life, not just a photo in cyber space.

Thanks tiny, LadyNeigh and The Horse Lord

Tiny, it took me many sessions over two weeks to finish. If I had to guess actual time spent on it... hmm I don't know...maybe 20+ 25+ hours, maybe more? I have no idea! It's on 8x10" and I used a canson smooth grain for it (it has a little texture to it). I used charcoal and graphite together throughout. The tooth of the paper allowed me to do that.

I had a great time doing it :) but now it's on to the next.. a beautiful warmblood :)
