Thank you all for your kind comments!
@ midwestgirl89, go ahead and steal the idea (and post the results!). :) And everyone else wanting to do this: go ahead! Draw, draw, draw loads!

__ __ __

New sketches. Boy, aren't these photos terrible or what! Not so great sketches either, but I think they're a step up from that photography. :D

#10: AngelWithoutWings54's horse Jerry, #11: DustyDiamond's Willy.
I'm not that happy with either of these, though especially "Jerry" looks better in my sketchbook: the contrast is horrible in the photo. LOVED Willy, might have to draw him again. :) (Yes, show me a Standardbred looking horse and I go all giddy.)

Sketches #12 and #13: again for the oil painting. No, I don't normally sketch this much for oil paintings, if at all.

#14: pure randomness (a horse I know). #15 Poco1220's Poco. Poco's photo was very difficult but funny, had to try it as a quick sketch. Not (at all) happy with the result.

Well, on with the show! Scanning is a must.

If you want, you can draw Love Story. Only if you want to of course

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

I dont know if you are taking requests but if so, I would love one of my horse Dozer and pony Bart, I have a picture that I love of them together and I would love to see it drawn :) (It's my avatar)

Seeing your work makes me want to start drawing again lol. I've kind of let it go for a while now (a couple of years, actually, now that i think of it) and put my skills more towards painting. I love your style & that you're not the type to strive to have ever little line & shadow smoothed perfectly. It looks more natural the way you do it. Great ;)

A new member of the bad photo & bad sketch galore! (Yes, I really should get to scanning.)
Been really busy with commissions (queue 21 pieces long! just crazy!) and planning my first solo exhibition (as well as 2 group exhibitions). Scary, exciting and amazing stuff.

Sketch #16: paintluver's "Romeo". I wanted to enhance the shadows and make it a bit more 'dramatic', but I think I didn't do a good job. I struggle with markings as you might have gathered. Well, practice, practice, practice...
