Hello everyone!
I've also been inspired like so many of you to contribute my own sketches and studies, I have quite a lot to show so I hope you're all ready. I'll be updating with a new picture almost daily until I'm all caught up, so here we goooo~

I'm starting off with an old thread I found recently that challenged artists here to draw 100 horses in about 2 months I believe, I only really had a month of free time before returning to school, so I was unable to complete 100 in that time, but I will be returning to the subject every now and then.

More horses, nice :) They are so well done, great structure and form. Horses are one thing I would love to draw well but tend to avoid constantly, seeing your work is inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Joan T, DrDebby, and jacquip for the nice comments!

Here's of course, more horses. I just noticed I haven't told you the supplies I've been using!
It's just been simple prismacolor colored pencils, prismacolor inking pens, ballpoint pen, and graphite. #6 was a gouache

Great horse sketches! Doing 100 of something is a great idea for a sketchbook challenge!

Thank you all for the warm compliments! I really appreciate it :)
RainySea- The paper is by Daler Rowney, its the Earthbound Sketchbook series I believe, I got it on dickblick.com, I got 2 for a decent price. As for the marker, it is the Prismacolor Chisel Tip, I absolutely love that one, perhaps even more than the Brush tip :lol:

Here are a few sketches from long ago when I first started college
The first are studies of maned wolves, transformed into my maned wolf character with a few notes processing what I want to do for an assignment.
And the second is a from-life study in life drawing class, I had such a loose concept of the human figure. If you havent figured out yet, I don't very much like drawing humans, LOL.

Great drawings! I love doing exercises like this too, say, draw one hundred hands this month, or draw a tree a day. I think those kinds of drills really help you develop confidence and technique for sketching and really helps in learning anatomy and proportions of a specific subject. Good stuff!

Great sketches. The wolf page is fascinating.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments! I really apologize that I have been neglecting this website, art college definitely takes up a lot of time for me to draw, ironically.

However I've been working on my watercolor skills these past few weeks, so I'd like to share with you all some work in progresses.

I finish the semester in about 3 weeks, so i'll have much more to post by then!
