Had to put my movie on hold while I went through your thread - this was WAY more interesting.
Amazing talent!! Am excited to see what you do next!

I'm a big fan of horses AND puppies so everything in here has not only been highly skilled but subjects I love.

My favourite thing about all of your paintings (and something I find is often missing in a lot of 'animal' portraits) is the expression and life in the face. You capture it perfectly each and every time!!

Love love love love love love.

Question

OMG!!!! That is so amazingly awesome. I love the very first mustang one you posted. The drawing are superb. I love the dogs. You have HUGE talent!!!! How old are you and when did you start doing pictures of horses? Also, sorry for the many questions but how do you do the 'hair effect'?

You know the ones you drew/painted when you were little/young those are what mine will look like when I've had loads of practise. Do you think someone rubbish as me (see Awsome Art Journal thread) can get up to a good standard by just practising?

Hey, practice makes perfect! Just keep at it like I did. I started drawing actively in grade 4 & didn't start painting until I was about 13 or so (didn't get very good until I was about 15 lol). I'm 21 now and still learning to perfect some things.

As for the hair effect, with crayon or pastel it just takes patience to draw in every line. With paint, I usually wet the color down, dip the brush in (flat brushes work best), dab it & scrunch it on a piece of paper towl to get all the little brush hairs standing up & then sweep it across the canvas so that it leaves behind a sort of streaky/hair pattern. Hard to explain! Lol ;)

Here's my next WIP
I'm not totally finished. There are some things about the background that I don't like & of course she hasn't seen it yet, but I will post another of the finished product!
