8/28/10- Giving my pen one more go before it craps out on me completely. I decided to add a little color. Sadly my scanner didn't pick up the light sand color in the ground or in the horse's tail. Oh well.

I know I have missed a couple days here. I have a commission that I just started the rough sketch for and pending other commissions, I may have to skip many more days. I am just going to sketch as I have time now, not exactly every day.

Anyway, here is todays' sketch...

8/31/10- AnnaLover, I went back to the first page of this thread to sketch your cute chestnut. I loved the first head shot, but also wanted to incorporate that long mane. I worked on this during my lunch break...enjoy!

I LOVE the shading and blending to show the detail of the fur and the bed he's lying on.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

The first two are really great, but i have to say i mega impressed with the last one. I wish i could use colored pencils that effectively! You've captured the different textures really well. Good job and keep up the good work!
