Hey Everyone, My First Sketch!
I did my first real horse sketch this morning, my first attempt of drawing horses lol I cant however seem to get the ears right :? tell me what you think and how to improve coz I wana do more now hehe, also, I cant decide whether what iv'e drawn is a horse or a pony? It was ment to be a big hunter horse at first but looks more like a lil cobby thing! What say you? :D

I draw horses myself and for a first time drawing of a horse that is really good. You don't even want to know what mine looked like. If you'd like a few tips the best one I can give is don't draw from mind (though I'm not sure how you drew this one) The best drawings come from studying a picture or a live subject. Another suggestion would to be trying circles even. Do the ears as ovals and do a rough sketch first and then add detail. It makes a lot of difference. Don't be afraid to be messy. As long as you use pencil anything can be errased but one thing my art teacher told me was to try to never erase, at least until after you had it done then you could erase the messy spots.

I hope this helps ^.^

-Keep up the good work

Hey thanx for the compliment Lipizzangirl! :D
Yea, this one was draw partialy from mind (I saw a pic and then tried to memorize it rather than properly study it oops :( ) Oh well. Thanx for the tips, yea they realy help me :) Im paranoid of being a bit messy, it has to be "perfect" (no smudges or random lines) all way through lol I need to get outa that habbit! Ill try to relax a bit more when I draw. And yes, I seem to have forgotten that an eraser can be used anytime and that wen used finely, pencil can be easily rubbed out at the end. Thanx loads for the help :D what drawing have you done? (cant remember if Ive seen them up here.... if youve posted any.... if you have and I have commented then I have a realy shocking memory.... if you havnt posted any then may we have a look if you wouldnt mind? Im curious about seeing different peoples artwork :D ) XxX

I actually just posted some. I joined today so you wouldn't have seen them. I have more on my other computer but can't find my floppy but I'll get one from my bf and have those up by tomarrow hopefully.

Oh wicked, *goes and loox*...
Oh kyewl there ace, I luv the split personality one (hoping i have gone to the right persons gallery lol) very kwl! I like your artwork :D
The equine eye is kwl too, I wish my drawings could be as full of life but they look quite plain, goes back to the "be messy" thing though... that would liven them up a bit! btw is that your horse you have the pic of? if so hes very cute ^.^
