More Artwork

 We worked on our new house today and got all of the siding up.  Yay!  We get to start working inside on electrical and plumbing soon.... yay.... not lol.  I didn't have time to take photos or do anything fun with Chromey Pony, so instead I'll share the sketches I've done over the past few days.

First we have Storm and Mac running together!  I love their expressions.  I had to make some creative guesses because the photo I was looking at was tiny and blurry, but I think it turned out great.  This was the first one I did with my new paper and pencils, so I need some more practice with shading, blending, etc.

My cat is next.  I'm still working on blending the shadows.  The photo I was looking at has most of her in deep shadow with a highlight on her head, ears and back.  Her muzzle is lighter because she's getting white hairs in her old age.  I might work on this one some more later.  :)  Oh and I even dug out my old colored pencils to do her eyes.  

And my latest sketch, I did for my best friend of her handsome Paint.  I love his black and white mane.  :)  I totally nailed his expression!  It is so typical of him lol.  The proportions are off a little in his neck and belly, but I still love how it turned out.  There is not a yellow/green cast to the actual drawing, that's just my sad photography lol.


  1. Your drawings are amazing!! I think my favourite is the first one of Storm and Mac cause you've got all the details amazingly on that!

    I love drawing and have done some drawings of horses for my art A Level Coursework, I'll dig them out tomorrow and put them on my blog for you to look at if you want, my art teacher gave me some little tips that I could share with you if you'd like :D

  2. And your shading/blending looks great on all three pictures!

  3. Yes please share your artwork!! I would love to see them and I'm happy to get any tips I can get. :D
