As I've finished these I thought I'd post them but I do plan to do some more.

First of all I just had to draw my friend

'Max the One-Eyed Shire Horse'
A5 Daler-Rowney HW 220 gsm paper
Faber-Castell polychromos pencils.

and as you know I just love animal portraiture and this big guy has such a gorgeous face.

'Ariel the Leonberger'
A4 Hahnemule pastel paper - blue
Derwent tinted charcoal pencils
Derwent pastel pencils

I have to say i'm really happy about how Ariel turned out :) I don't use charcoal much in ANY form.






Both done in just under 2 hours (2 x 1hr TV dramas :rolleyes: :D )

The horse and dog are gorgeous! I love the flow of the dog's hair and the strength of the horse.
