November 2 work in progress: horse drawing

It's easier to snap a few pics than it is to stop and scan stuff while I'm working, so... crappy pics instead of pretty scans. There will be a pretty scan when I'm done. :-) Oh yeah and these aren't all from today.

Oh the many colors that make up black. I know some people have this big hangup about not ever using a black colored pencil or black paint or whatever. Meh... I don't use it by itself, let's put it that way. Alone, it's a very flat black. It takes a LOT of layers of color to make a rich black, but I have no qualms about using black itself as one of those layers. Makes perfect sense to me. Some people won't touch it. Whatever floats your boat I guess.

Oh yeah, and the reference photo below illustrates why one should never rely too heavily on a photograph. Can you say distortion?
