So I decided to pick up some Graphite...
Some rough sketches I did yesterday. Haven't drawn anything in years and never drawn a horse. The first one I did (not shown-too big) was out of proportion, nah, that was no good! But the two that followed are not too bad.
I copy from photos, but with both of these I have changed markings. The pinto wasn't originally pinto but I think he looked good that way :)
What do you guys think?
another one from today
I think for your first time drawing horses amd using graphite pencils you are off to a VERY good start. I love how bold you are already with your darker tones. Kepp looking at the photos and maybe defining the facial features as you get more practice. I think your proportions are pretty good as well. Can't wait to t see more drawings from you!
Thank you. my problem is when I draw horses from different angles they can look like drawings... or cartoons, I dont know why! lol, I need to establish my own style I think. It will come.
here are some more
I love the body shot one.
drawing is a skill that comes with practice, most artists have been drawing for years and years, which is why their work is so great. I'm not going to lie when I say that your work is lacking, but you will get there and I'm interested in seeing your progress. Don't be afraid to use your pencil, put in lots of shading.. and a tip for shading like you did in your body shot one, you can take either your finger or a q tip and rub it over the parts you have shaded so you cant see the pencil lines.
I hope you don't take it offensive.. just trying to motivate you to keep going.
Its ok, thanks for the advice. I know about the pencil line thing but it only works to a certain extent with HB! and my camera is too good it pics up everything lol!
