A Man and his Horse

It has been 1 year since I started drawing! And in a fit of vertigo-induced madness I decided it was a good time to try my first horse, my first material and my first person all in one big new drawing! Who on earth thinks this is a good idea? That's correct, crickets chirping...

Anyway, this is approximately A4 size, and for those that don't recognise him, it's Jay and an anonymous horse from Moonlight Retreat, a fantastic holiday cabin down on the Great Ocean Road near Apollo Bay. Coloured pencil on drafting film. Jay likes it, so we'll be framing this one to go, well, somewhere :)

And Baby Makes Three!

This is the last Snow Leopard for a while :) It was a bit larger, about 12x18 inches, drafting film, coloured pencil. Ref photo by Albert Valentino from pbase.

I have also just about completed my very first picture with a person in it. It's still freaking me out somewhat, so stay tuned...
