I'm not sure what my apprehension about tack is-it never comes out like I'd prefer. But I love what some of you ladies on here do when it comes to saddles and bridles. They look amazing! For example, Liz has one that I love. The saddle looks so lifelike

(not sure if copying and pasting that link will work or not)
And I know it's all shading.
Twister-yeah it's in charcoal. I used to work more with graphite but charcoal's my thing now. I love love love it!
Appy-haha I've been drawing horses all my life. And if you look at some of my things from even a year ago, some from a month ago, I've got the cartoony thing too. Like toadflax would say...practice practice practice!

Beautiful work!! It's just lovely, you've done an excellent job of the eye and I like your style of toning, it's so different to mine, I tend to draw in every hair to get the detail, but you've managed to do it without having to slave over each hair, love your work it's gorgeous well done!!!! Xx

thanks kayty. If you look at any of my other posts, you'll find that I get kinda lazy when it comes to super-fine detail. =) so i'm glad this method works! Your art is really amazing by the way. I've been quietly keeping up with your dog commissions-very lovely.
Aww thanks Bubbles =)

Ok, I think this is easily your best piece as far as I can recall, and that's saying a lot. It's clean, interesting, precise, elegant and beautiful. Is someone lucky enough to be getting it for Christmas?

BRAVO!!!! Getting kind of jealous here...lol. Seriously though by far your best drawing. I have always loved the softness of your drawings. And yes, is some lucky person getting this as a gift?
