something I am proud of....
1 Attachment(s)
I did this drawing as part of a trade for an edited photo from a friend. It wasn't intended to be anything uber special, just a thanks for editing a picture of my late horse Tailor. So while I was at work, I grabbed a piece of printer paper and a mechanical pencil I had in my purse and worked on this over the course of several lunch breaks. When I got home I touched up a few of the darker areas with an 8B pencil. I haven't done any blending yet, and I don't think I want to. I think it looks good the way it is, but any advice on what to do would be appreciated. I am quite shocked this came out as good as it did.

Wow! Very nice!
The only thing that sort of sticks out is the horse's right elbow (left on the picture). It looks too big, but I'm not sure if you can change that. Otherwise it's really fantastic.

Honestly, Liz, skip the blending, it'll just sap the energy out of it---this is fantastic, one of your most dynamic yet, great technically. Don't know about the elbow, maybe, but I didn't notice it on my own.

Thank you everybody...funny thing about that elbow...I struggled alot with it and although I used my eraser VERY little for any highlighting, I did take my eraser to the elbow several times because I wasn't happy with either the shape or how I was shading around it. I also wasn't too thrilled with the left hoof. That one gave me trouble too.

I also noticed that the scanned image didn't pick up as much of the cross hatching that shows up in the drawing, but even still, I am going to leave the drawing alone.
