Stunning!! I can attest to the dark issue. I have the HARDEST time getting things dark enough. Makes sense that someone mentioned it was a confidence issue... My lines are so light, my hubby most recently thought I'd traced one I showed him, until I showed him the much smaller photo magazine add that was my inspiration. Instructers were always hollering at me to go darker, lol. You're actually making my hands itch to pull the old pencils out... And it's been 3 years or so. And I want to send you a puc of my fjordX lummox.

Thanks a lot y'all! And I'm glad you like it, Dreamcatcher5.

Hemms~ That's interesting... And I guess I never thought about it until tinyliny pointed it out, too.

Feel free to send me a picture! I love fjords. It helps a lot to get a clear, focused photo so that it is easier to draw. I will try to get it done as soon as I can! Got to work around school, horses, and karate :)

And finally I got a hold of the one I drew for my grandma. This is her when she was 15 years old. It is the third drawing of a person I ever did.

Here's what I've gotten done on hemms photo so far. It's been a while since I've done a horse's whole body, and not just the head, so this is good practice for me.

I have only been using mechanical pencil so far. I will use my good pencils at the very end. I tried to discipline myself to draw from the left to the right.

The baby will most likely be after this drawing.

Don't you dare worry about using just one pencil! ;) My friend Cheryl A. Harris uses a single, .5mm HB mechanical pencil (that would be a "#2" standard) for all of her drawings, which you can see here.

Most of my supplies I actually buy at Wal-Mart and the only real reason that I have "artist pencils" is for larger areas. In this portrait, I used my .5mm HB for the horse & 4B for the background. You're doing a great job as-is, and I'm pretty excited to see how you work this new piece!

Thanks a lot guys!

Wow, those are wonderful drawings. And I had no idea yours was done with only two pencils, Creampuff; it looks so professional and everything. And I really like your friend's drawing, too. How on earth did she get it so well blended though?? I love that!

I pretty much only use the good pencils after I'm done with the mechanical to darken shadows or add some detail in eyes and things. Otherwise, the mechanical pencil is all I use. It doesn't smear or smudge nearly as easily and I'm too lazy to switch pencils!

Here's what I have so far:

All I did was layer and layer over layers. Lol Cheryl does similar, but she will also use a kneaded eraser more than I do. Which serves more than one purpose because when I stress, I have to "move my hands." So the kneaded eraser is there while I rack my brain. (: Cheryl's original drawings were larger, as well, which helps.

I have to move my hands, too. Usually I just fiddle around with my pencil though, since I rarely have a kneaded eraser. That or my right leg will bob up and down really fast. Drives Mom nuts!!! Hahaha!

Here is the finished picture! I'm not quite satisfied with the head though... I overworked it and started drawing it carelessly. *sigh*

I just received the reference photo of a baby, so that will be next!
