View Full Version : Jay the chestnut horse

It's about time I finished something!! I completed it today. This is Smooth Sailor, aka Jay, my friend's mom's QH/Appy gelding.

I also took some WIP pics, which I will post as soon as I put them together.

(Since this pic was taken, I've added some more to the background so it doesn't look quite so outlined. Unfortunately, I have already given it to the owner so I can't get a new pic.)

Specs: Prismacolor on 9x11 Stonehenge

Thanks for looking!

I think you did an excellent job on this piece, and I also believe that as talented as you are, you continue to improve with each piece. :) Well done! I look forward to the progress pics you will be posting. Too bad you didn't get a final "final" pic before handing it over!

This picture of yours has really given me a buzz to have a go! I've just recieved all the way from America a set of 72 Primacolors and plenty of Stonehenge paper. I've never tried these pencils before so eager I am!
Oh and I can't forget the electric pencil sharpener, which by the way doesn't fit our sockets here in the uk and has a lower voltage.:crying: But hey I've bought an adaptor and it works!:D Yeee Harr!!!
Lovely work!:clap:

THANKS, PAUL! Great to hear you're going to try CPs! Knowing how awesome your watercolors are, I can't wait to see your first CP drawing! Oh, and too bad they don't have universal sockets; wouldn't that make things so much easier...

Hey CJ!

What a handsome fellow! Nice pencil work too.

Thank you, TJ! Jay is a beautiful horse, but unfortunately has arthritis and can't be ridden much anymore. :( It's a shame, b/c when he was better, he was a great show horse!
