Robert, you got the saddle down very well, but you need a wider range of values to really make it pop. As is the saddle blends into the background and gets lost. You did a great job on the blanket. It looks soft and the plaid is wonderful. I haven't seen this piece before. How large is it and how long did it take you to stipple the piece?

Really nice work, Robert!!! Being so large, it must great in person!

Took too long....:lol::lol:
[prob about 30 hours]
Is presently out on exhibit, but when back [assuming not sold], will deepen the values.... :thumbsup:

Is hard for me to 'think small'....... seems if to get into a work, it must be large enough to do so....
[my space one - View Master - is 4' x 8' , as anything smaller just would not give the SPACE feeling to the work...]

Very nice... I admire your patience. I've only done little 4"x4" ones and those pooped me out! I can't imagine doing anything that size!

Robert, having done a little pen and ink work, I have a great appreciation for how tedious this can be... and especially at that size! Good job.

I can't recall hearing about a pen and ink piece that large! What an ambitious undertaking. I tend to agree with Charissa about the values but before muddling with it, be sure our comments apply to the original work. There may be fading in the image. It's a wonderful rendering!
