I'm actually going to draw the same horse Not as to competing against you or anything I just like your version and I wan't to use the same ref
Oh my goodness, no - please do! After all, I certainly don't own that photo, and I'd LOVE to see your rendition. Let me know when you finish?
I will Also I have a question how do you put pictures in your journals. I still can't figure out how to do that.
Oh - go to your deviation and look on the right where all the 'Share' options are. There's a drop-down arrow. Click on it and copy the 'thumb' number. Post that in your journal, and tada!
Double points for handling a coloured horse so well! I always find them a headtrip to draw since you have to switch between shading light and dark, so I have muchos respect for people who draw them *and* pull it off successfully! You've captured his strength and poise perfectly; he looks powerful and elegant at once. And I love the light flowing tail. Fantastic pic, once again
I actually prefer paints; there's less dark values to go into, and I'm lazy. Thanks so much!
Aha, so that's your secret! I'm the opposite, I can handle dark values fine but find light horses difficult. So paints manage to combine both of those for me. And I wouldn't say you're lazy, just economical with your time And you're welcome!
this is............<3. Know I have asked before but whats the softest pencil you own? Because when I take photos the camera usually turns them lighter.
Aw, thanks! Well, the softed pencil I ever use is a 2H; it's great for white things/skin. I actually found a 7H at a Michael's and bought it, thinking "Oh this will totally be useful!" Ha. It's kind of ridiculous how light that one is.
Welcome I need to find something like that I also want to find something darker than 8B

Hmm... Well, there's the Ebony pencil, which gets very, very dark. That works well. My art teacher had a brand that she really liked; it was dark and matte, so the light didn't reflect off of it. I don't remember what it was called, though.
Very nice done
