Gee, here I thought I was late getting started as I was out so when I got home I quickly checked the reference shots, picked one and sketched my little ?!? butt off. Just posted what I got done in 40 min then went to check out the other pcs only to find that this project didn't get started until just before I signed up. No time to work on finishing my horsey now but will try to do more or get back on it tomorrow.

i thought i was going to do something in colored pencil but after seeing the pics i choose this one. very limited oil pastel pallette. 40 minutes. 7 x 12"

now i'm going to try to do something with that baby. Maybe my baby will turn out better than the horse I tried to do for ironhorse
:D

Just a minor mix up, our host got the time off by 2hrs, but she has posted wonderful images, and EVERYONE has when they want to finish, but those of us who were waiting will work these past 2hrs 8 - 10 and chat at 10... please everyone is welcome to come to that...

The secondary project Barcelona, by me was done when we had no idea what was happening and some ppl were eager to do something, it is now open to everyone as an ongoing project... but to be fair to me cause I did scramble for an hour to make it, we will have a chat over it in 2 weeks, to be announced... I will let everyone know in advance... but yes you all lucked out and have 2 to choose from... but please please please...

Start with Ironhorse's...

Quickie sketch of a horse using a brush pen. The anatomy's not right, but I was using an unfamiliar instrument with a reference image on the screen (instead of printed, like I usually do) to do an unfamiliar subject.

In other words, it's pretty good for what I had to work with. :cat:

My eraser is my third hand so I think you have done well to draw it straight off.

Are you going to add any more to it ? I think it deserves to be worked on.

I don't know what happened!!!!

i did an incredible EXACT likeness of ironhorse's adorably cute
baby and when I loaded my final progress pic somehow UNCLE FESTER put his baby's picture in it's place.
My charcoal drawing was sooooo awesome you would have mistaken it for the ref pic :confused: :D :evil:

Thanks for the kind comments on my horse. I didn't have time to work at all on him more today ... had a family reunion to attend out of town. But at least I was able to get through and see all the entries tonight. Nice reference photos Ironhorse - thanks for hosting. Even though I'm not as visible around the board lately I still check in daily ... come autumn I'm sure I'll be around as much as ever again. But I DO enjoy these draw events when I can participate.

well I didn't get a chance to look at this project yesterday, but hopped on board tonight. I am working on the draft horse pair...great pics Ironhorse! I am doing them in scratchboard...which will take me more like 20 hours than the two, but I did upload my two hour progress picture. Are those draft horses Belgians Ironhorse?

Back to work I go ;)

I am late getting to this since I spent the weekend in bed but just couldnt pass up the chance to do horses since its been a long time in doing them. Hope no one minds. Only thing is I CANT see between the legs of the horses even after putting the picture in adobe and lightening it up. Gona have to bluff my way thro I guess. UNLESS Ironhorse comes in and helps..hint hint. :D

Ironhorse, thank you for posting such perfect pics! It was very hard to choose just one!

I love how sharp this is, great choice of paper. The detail is so painstaking, and the light pencils(?) on the darker paper really stands out. I love the way the skin seems loose on his skull and his mane seems like it would be rough, it looks so real!

This is simply lovely!

I chose to crop it because of his beautiful eyes! This is all graphite and the eyes were colored with prismacolors only. This is the first time I have used this effect like this.. Now the family complains about the eyes following them around the room! LOL

I know - the horses were a hard choice for me too - ;) maybe one day i can do another

VERY nice Te! Okay, 'fess up. What kind of floor polish and how did you use it?
ohhhhhhhh okay then :eek: :evil:
It's "Johnson's Floor wax, smells nice and you put your oil pastels down then blend with the floor polish and yeah, thats it.
I love using graphite powder and then blending it in with the floor polish cos then you can buff it up with a rag later. :D

I see more great work in here too, WOW

TY Crias seeing your scratchbord brings back memories for me too. I love that medium but its so intense. I found if I hadnt scratched to deep I could go back with india ink and reapply it to cover up the goof. This is looking wonderful though and look forward to the finish of it.

pencils4me its conte pastel pencils so far..may go in with my rembrants too. I LOVE those eyes in your piece pull u right in :)

baquitania I agree with the others your horse head is amazing...wow and its been 4 yrs ..u havent lost your touch..wonderful piece

wingnut your horses look sooooooo good!!! hope u dont mind but gona use your picture as a ref so I can get the legs under the horse right if u dont mind.

Ironhorse..I love the detail u have put in the head..just up my alley. its great!!!

Hey animal! I know this is not your usual subject matter but its still a "mustang" right? LOL

You've got the basics down here - but i would like to see you try to look at your lines in relation to each other, and put down the angels and lines as you see them not as you know they are (?) Also for the bright highlights leave your paper untouched where they go (all subjects) and make your very darkest darks too. In order to have bright hightlights you have to have darks to bring them out. Make sense? This applies to everything not just this one pic - -
still looks pretty good - and i HATE drawing cars! ;) Your braver than me!

strawberry
06-27-2002, 11:38 AM
Thanks, gnu! I was trying to capture the highlights on him. I think it was coming along well, but I changed the nose partway through because I had the bridle wrong, and now it looks ridiculous (just the nose) so I think I'm going to try it again from scratch. Maybe larger this time.

I did find that after using the watercolour pencils, and wetting the paper, it wouldn't take as many layers. Maybe that's because I got impatient and perhaps it wasn't dry enough?

I want to thank Ironhorse for the wonderful reference images. There are three or four more I can't wait to try.

I am trying to use more colour (I am so dull, dull, dull usually) and I'm quite happy with how this turned out.

Everytime I re-visit this thread there is more spectacular stuff being posted. I'll try and make some time tomorrow to comment on some of the new ones, because they are fabulous!

What a great project! You ignited a fire here Ironhorse!

No problem Twyla , I really want you to have this ;) I had great pleasure painting him. the bigger one i did the night of the SAE i got half finished in the two hours, chatted awhile, then kept chatting and painting til 7 am !!! I scanned it and the only one I knew online at that time of the morning was my brother in Alabama. So i zipped that image over to show him... and first thing he says is " I want it" .... lol I'm thinking no you don't ...( you've got enough freebies out of me) then he says he wants to give it to a friend as a gift... AhSooooo I gave him a very reasonable price and he said sold! so that's my story

Your's was safety wrapped and went out in today's mail. Hope to hear you get it safe and sound soon. :D sandy

Thank you Twyla.

This is on a 11x14 inch. canvas board.
I used acrylics, opaque colors for the
background and acrylic washes for the horse,
to form the highlights.
I will finish with acrylic opaque colors.
I like this project.
There are so many participants with such beautiful work.

Crias
06-28-2002, 02:37 PM
Thanks all for your comments!

Nick, Scratchbaord is white board (usually clayboard) that is coated with a think layer of black india ink. Then you use a fine, sharp point to scratch through the black layer to the white underneath. Some people come back in and use watercolors to give the white areas color.

TJ, I think I will put in most of the background too...though I am going to simplify it a bit from the photograph. I have about 4 or 5 hours into this peice so far.

Twyla, I am working on student grade scratchboard...so the paper type. I bought quite a bit several years ago and have been using it up gradually. I might buy some clayboard stuff at a later date.

Crias
06-28-2002, 06:02 PM
I posted a bit more progress that I made over my lunch hour today. It is a better scan than those previous too, as the shading looks more correct and contrast is not so stark. Also for Nicky here is a detail image of scratchboard work....hatching and crosshatching is how it is all done! This is the section including a bit of tail and hip of the front horse, mane of the back horse.

Nicky
06-28-2002, 06:43 PM
Crias

Wow! This is very interesting, a lot of etching
of the black, becomes a light value, a very little
etching is a dark value.
This needs practicing of the values.

This is almost like the old etchings, except they worked
on the negative.

Thanks

Fantastic piece, Artdudette! Just so you know, you are allowed to take longer than 2 hours to do a weekend/ Friday night draw. The only thing you should do is upload an image at the 2 hour point. You can upload it to final images OR to the progress images.

I think I took around 16 hours to do Arlene's Friday Night Draw. I just uploaded a progress shot at the 2 hour mark. :)
