What a wonderful idea! Something someone like me who needs to practice would benefit from. :)

Love the colored pencil one! I get an urge to try something new like colored pencils or pastels, but I really need to concentrate on perfecting my graphites first.

Can't wait to see more!

That coloured pencil one is so awesome! :o Very smooth.
And very inspirational, good thing I remembered how much I suck with coloured pencils.

Liz I'm glad you took the initiative and started it. I read kayhmk's thread and thought, "Hmm, what an awesome idea"...and that's as far as I got (typical of me lol)
And a sidenote, this may may seem odd but I love how you draw noses. I've noticed that on a few of your drawings. And with the colored pencil piece I think it's neat how you focused in on a quirky feature rather than the whole horse.

I like them. :)

If you're not practicing, someone, somewhere is, and when you meet him, he will win.

Hey my apologies! I thought you were looking for inspiration xP sorry!

7/15/10- Just a quick sketch of a random horse. Nothing special. My challenge here was not to blend. I want so badly to take a q-tip to this

wow, I love the blue roan! you're tempting me to try and draw with colored pencils, which is NOT a good thing, hahaha

Gorgeous! It is so realistic, especially the eye! I could never, ever draw like that, it takes me like 203 hours to get a shaded picture that looks more or less like a horse head! Great job!!!!! I LOVE it!
