Sorry I havn't been around guys, I've been pretty busy lately. Nothing to show you at the moment, I just thought I tell you, I'm redoing much of the site, here are a few things I'll be changing:

-new template

-deleting the 'work in progress' page

-adding a 'photography' page

-finnaly get the newsletter going

-scanning all my work

and lots more!

You'll still be able to use the site while I'm working on it, so enjoy!

Bunny rabbit! So cute!

I painted this guy in acrylics and then went over him with a felt tip pen to give his fur texture. I think he turned out pretty good, considering he's my 4th rabbit picture ever and I'm not really comfortable with paint, I'm more of a drawer.I  hope you like him!

At the moment I have....drumroll.....another horse drawing on the go! It's......drumroll.....another headstudy, lol. It's in pencil crayon and is going to be a chestnut with a star-ish marking.

And finally, I have joined deviantART! I have everything on this site in my gallery on there, and some other stuff too. There's a link to my page on there on the sidebar, have a peek!

Ok, I skipped a few days, but I finished something! This is an Andalusian. I drew it in pencil, and it's the first thing in awhile that I haven't finished in one sitting. In my reference pic, the horse is on the beach, but I'm terrible at doing water, so he's in a rainstorm instead. Here's my ref pic:

And here's my drawing, for everyone who thinks I do to many headstudies:

Anyway, I hope you like him. I haven't started anything else yet, but I probably will tonight, being me.

Ok, smudgy grey cob pony, as promised! Finished him last night, I really like how his smudgyness turned out, all thought I'm not really chuffed with his outline. Believe it or not, my reference photo for him was a welsh A, I guess I should have given him more of a dished profile and smaller ears, but still, you live and learn. Anyway, here he is!

I also did this yesterday, for everyone who thinks I draw to many horses, its a persian cat! I'm quite pleased with this one, the only thing I'm not to sure on is the nose, I think it should be bigger, but for my first cat in about 6 years, she could have been worse. Here she is.

And finally, this guy, who I drew in about 5 minutes, lol.

Nothing in progress at the moment, I'll probably have something done by tomorrow thought, being me.

My very first blog entry, yay!

Here is my latest peice, I did him the other night, and I think he has to be my best pencil crayon drawing ever, althought his nostril is still bugging me. He has 14 differant colors in him, including red, orange, yellow, blue, pink, purple and several shades of brown. I drew his general outline from my head, but used a referance photo for the color, and I'm especially proud of how his forelock and the shading around his muzzle came out. Anyway, sorry for the horrible pic, hope you like him!

I am now working on a little grey cobby sort of pony in pencil, no pics yet, but I'll probably have him done by tomorrow, and then I'll take some. I am using a new technique on this one which involves a lot of smudging, and it's working very well, so watch this space and I'll have pics soon!

I found this pic on the internet, and it made me laugh so hard I just had to share it! Poor people, though.
