Thanks mate, it's getting there slowly! Problem with greys is that using so much white pastel, the dust starts to cover the blacks and make them fade, so once I've 'finished' I'll have to go back over and darken all the black bits again.
No problem with you saving the WIP's ;)
I think you'll be surprised at the difference between the photo's and the real thing once you get it, the photo's dull the drawing and take away a lot of the detail!

Eek, that was what I was worried about asking you to do Rexy! I can only imagine how difficult drawing a grey would be!

It looks amazing in the photos, so I am definitely excited to see the finished product!

Haha thats ok, the more I get pushed out of my comfort zone, the better it is for me! I've got a black on the go at the moment too, the two hardest colours to draw :P

It looks awesome! And the couple pics of the black earlier are really amazing too. With the gray, the blue background nails it. They look awesome together. And the tack is really detailed too.
I always love keeping up with you wip's. Shows how much effort really goes into it!

Your work is seriously making me consider giving pastel a try, the only thing is that i would have NO idea where to start! Seriously! I can honestly say i havent even touched a piece of pastel in my life! ha ha

Do it!!! Honestly, it's a fantastic medium to work in and you've got such amazing talent with all the other mediums you've posted here.
I'm happy to give you pointers to get you going in the right direction, its just a case of getting a feel for being able to pick colours out of a photo to use as a base, and then just add layers until you're happy

LOl you're awesome! I'll have to look around my little town to see if i can find pastels first! Maybe Wal-Mart... ha ha! Did that sound as redneck to you as it did to me?
What brand do you like?
What kind of paper do you use?
lol so many questions!
We wont even get started on technique yet!
