Horse head

Hello Everyone,
I am new to the site and new to drawing so thought I'd upload a couple of photos of a drawing I have recently completed and the story!

I have had a go at the odd sketch in the past, usually with 1 or 2 hard pencils, whatever paper I had lying around and normally very rough and rushed, with unsurprisingly rough and rushed looking results. A month or so ago I decided I wanted to get a portrait done of my girlfriends horse that she adores!. I asked an artist friend of mine if she could squeeze it in for Christmas, but, before I had heard back I for some reason decided to have a go at drawing it myself. I took a secret low quality photo on my phone of a photograph she has in her flat. I looked at the tutorials on this site, invested in a better range of pencils, some good quality paper and most importantly took my time as I set to work. The techniques I learnt from this site were extremely helpful.
I know the finished piece is no where near perfect and I hope my technique will improve as I practice more but I have been reassured that it is good enough and so I got it mounted and framed ready to give her at Christmas... I am sure she will be surprised as she has no idea I have ever attempted any drawing!

A big thanks to Duey's drawings for inspiration and some excellent tutorials.

Apologies for the rubbish photo uploads... glass caused me some reflection problems!

Thanks
James from UK

Re: New Starter

I also used to take photos of horses secretly.
When I was younger.
See my drawings and digital paintings now!!!

Or else, drunk Mel Gibson will come to your house and beat you up!

Re: New Starter

Thank you for your replies!

As for the secret photo taking... Ha, it could be the start of a much bigger problem.
