Re: Carousel- WIP

Well here is the final posting for my carousel horses. I changed the background a bit- the little "lights" were a bit distracting for me and I thought it took away from the horses as people would look at them and think What the heck is that???. I redid it to show motion by just the pencil strokes in a horizontal direction, going from light color down to dark. I felt this really put the emphasis back on the horses Now to come up with a title.... my daughter suggested: Say Aahhh .... what do you think

Re: Carousel- WIP

Absolutely stunning! Well done. I think I preferred the background with the little lights as it gave a suggestion of movement, but that's just preference. The horses are absolutely stunning and as you said, you don't want to distract from them.

Re: Carousel- WIP

This has turned out beautifully! No offense, but i too preferred the blurred lights, seemed to give it more movement!

Re: Carousel- WIP

Salemskye, Marie, Lexy, Ali, Lynette, Agnes and all others, thank you so much for your comments! I think it was because of all the support here in the forum that I was able to really achieve this level. I am now searching for that next project, through my photo collection.... hopefully it will turn out as well and be exciting for you all to watch

Re: Carousel- Finished!

It's amazingly lovely. It looks the the horses are airbrushed with gloss over the airbrushing which is hard to convey. You did an outstanding job. I like th harder light because that is what the light looks like on the high gloss finish of carousel horses. Just my opinion though!

Re: Carousel- Finished!

The high gloss is captured perfectly. I'll be using your piece as a guide whenever I get around to doing a carousel horse.

Re: Carousel- Finished!-Found my answers in the thread. Thanks!

(Unless you kept track of and want to share ALL the colors you uses! :-)


OK, this is the shiniest colored pencil art I have ever seen, and oh, so smooth. You have probably said in the thread what pencils you are using, so I will re-read it all again, but have you discussed how you are burnishing your colors to get them that deep and rich, how you layer, etc. Please teach me!
