Sorry for the delay, everyone! Apparently, December is the "busiest time of year" at the store (one of my part-time jobs), and I haven't had a lot of free time because of wonky hours (like 4:00 pm until 10:00 pm one night, and 3:00pm-9:00pm the next, with a little 10:00am-4:00 pm thrown in) I haven't had a WHOLE lot of time to work on drawings.
The next portrait is in the works, but slowly. I'm going to spend this Christmas Eve with my young son and get back into the grind tomorrow. The deadline is postponed until I'm finished with the graphite portraits.
As for round 2, I'm going to extend the deadline for "likes." Get those likes coming! The more likes, the more wins. I'm going to draw these in COLORED PENCIL. I will announce the voting deadline when I finish round 1.
You guys can enter as many photos as you'd like, and they don't have to be just horses! I will select the most valid candidates, judging by image quality & composition (how well they would work as a portrait). Want your pet/self, but in a different pose? I can do that, too! Just include several pictures of the subject from all sides in various poses.
