Wow lilruffian they are good like always. It is hard to believe that this is your first time with pastels. It just shows how talented you are!!
Keep it up

A WIP of a paint colt my aunt used to own, just before they sold him. His name was Littlebit, after his sire Littlebit Black

I posted a painting: The thread is called (and in the art section of course): long time no paint. no one has commented on it yet though. :( But it would mean a lot to me if you went and told me what you think of it and what should be improved. :)
How long have you been painting?

I've been actively painting for about 5 years now. Before that it was just pencil sketches

Here's another pastel WIP of a paint filly named Baby.

lilruffian, I think you are ready to start selling these pastel drawings now!!! Honestly, I like them as much, if not more than your paintings. Makes me wanna dabble in soft pastels again.

Anyway, I hope you don't mind, but I "might" do a similar contest thing with my woodburns after I finish practicing on this plank. I like the idea of doing a portrait as if it were commissioned in order to up my game.
