Here's the one I'm currently working on. An A4 pastel. I don't enjoy bay horses so much, it is difficult to get the right shades as I hate just using plain brown straight onto the paper. So working out the underlying colours poses quite a challenge to me. And being a foal, it will be interesting. Foals front on are tricky, they have quite broad foreheads and their eyes look slightly disproportioned, making life difficult for the person trying to draw it!
Since I have so many to knock off, I am trying to work on 2 drawings at a time. This next one is a riding school pony commissioned by a student, just an A4 graphite. Ugliest pony ever haha! But I guess she's cute in her own way and is little miss attitude. Her name is marmite :P
Going to be fun working on a grey appy in graphite! I'm curious to know how it will turn out.
Hahaha yep I do liz, and I remember cringing when I saw you were attempting it lol! But you did a fantastic job, they're not easy by any means and for your first pastel work you did an outstanding job of it!!
Photo is horrendous!! In real life the contrast is 100x better *vomits*
Stressing out big time, I have so many to pump out that it's hitting production line stage and the I'm starting back with uni lectures on Monday so will be even busier. Plus trying out as many horses as possible within a 2 week time bracket to try and find something to ride at the state dressage champs because I've just been selected to ride on the state dressage squad so HAVE to ride at the champs or risk getting thrown off the squad. BUSY BUSY BUSY!!!
I'll be slowing down quite a bit now. I've still got a lot of work to get through, but I've also started uni and need to juggle the work load.
Foal picture will be the next to be posted hopefully in the next week or so.
