Man your work is -amazing-! I wish I could draw like that, as does everyone else.

I was wondering if you'd like to draw me and my gelding? It's only a half face shot of me, so it's not too bad.. I can't draw faces, they suck.
If you do, could you take the round yard out of it? But here it is. Thanks for lookin! And his marking is a tear drop upside down, if you needed a differentish angle or something.
..And my thumb is normally like that, my Shetland stood on it when I fell off. xD

Good job again!

But yes, that's why I stick with my chalk pastel rather than oils :P Can't stand the clumping and how hard it is to keep it on the page. Some people get incredible results with it, but I just don't get on with it.
The problem you'll have with chalk though, is that you need to layer it so much to get a solid colour down. You also need a toothed paper or it won't hold the layers thus you won't get mu depth to your work.

Yes, that would make sense. It seems you have to put several layers on with the oils, i can only imagine what it would be like with chalk! That's one thing i love about paint (or the way i do it anyhow) in that i have 1 coat to help the rest of the paint stick, another coat for base color & then however many after that that i need to apply shadowing & light.
