I just wanted to thank everybody who has lent me advice and shared their artwork in here. I have learned so much and taken my art to the next level because of some of the artists in here who truely inspire me. Though I still struggle with taking my time on drawings, I have since experimented with new materials and techniques. I just wanted to share a drawing I just did that was inspired by both Toadflax and Kayty. I did this entire drawing with just a mechanical pencil, nothing else, as toadflax once mentioned that she uses and I focused on fur texture as I have seen done flawlessly in Kayty's drawings. Though I am not quite up to their caliber, I do feel that my art is headed in the right direction.

I feel though that I have learned from so many other people in this forum, it's just that this drawing was inspired by these two people in particular.

Liz that's gorgeous!!!! I'm so happy to hear that I've inspired someone and taught them something to help their art work, it gives me a huge feeling of satisfaction and appreciation.
You're drawing is just lovely, and you've improved out of sight in such a short space of time. Very happy to see you've started putting the fur into your drawings too, it makes them look so 'touchable'...(as my dear old mother thought today when I finished my latest pastel.. she said 'it looks so real i could just reach out and stroke it'... and sure enough, she felt the urge to give it a pat and smudged it!!!!!).

Again, I'm so glad you've taken in people's advice, as an artist i do think that you have to learn by taking bits and pieces of other people's advice, however art is very much a personal thing as well and you have to find your own way and your own style. A lot of people think how I work is pastels is strange, but it works for me!
Looking forward to seeing more of your drawings in the future :)
