    Thank you all very much! It was fun to try something different (because I normally stick with graphite) and I think I will continue to throw in colored pieces every now and then. For now I am headed back to Graphite. I am doing a rough sketch and it's taken me a long time to get the proportions right. I am not even halfway done with it!! Once the sketching is complete though the shading usually goes pretty fast.

    I call it "another day at the office"

    What I have done so far - keep in mind the sketching portion is far from complete..

    You do that just free hand? Pretty darn good accuracy, if you ask me. I am impressed. I would not take on such a complex image. No way!

    Yup free hand...but it has taken me HOURS to do! I can usually get a sketch whipped out in under an hour - not this one. It has been VERY time consuming. I did use a ruler for the pipe fence because I seriously can't draw a straight line to save my life. Aside from that it has been one tiny little piece at a time. It took 45 minutes alone for the man on the far left. The poor horse - I kept wanting to put him on a diet. I actually had to set it down and walk away several times and then it took me putting the saddle on to finally snap what was wrong with him.

    I should have been smart and did this on a larger scale but I take my art with me on my lunch hour and I hate lugging a huge art pad around. The drawing is only a 9x12.

    Thank you! That really means a lot. I continue to try and improve. The branding piece has been a test of patience for me but its almost done...I am pretty proud of it. This drawing was a hard one for me but I like how it turned out.
