Catching the Wind by Misted-Dream Catching the Wind by Misted-Dream
Okay, so I've been meaning to upload this one for awhile now, but I haven't had the motivation to do so until today. ;) Anywho, this is a "detailed sketch" of what I am planning to do on a large sheet of velour paper with my pastels. I wanted to be sure that I mapped out all the detail from my head to the paper so it'd be easier by the time I make it in pastels. In case you can't tell, it's a Friesian, one of my all time favorite breeds. I'm really happy with this piece and how it turned out. :D

A good chunk of hours (maybe around 7 or so?), mechanical pencil, and sketch book paper. :)

Price: NFS

Yes, animals are great! I've never drawn pigeons before, but I probably could. I have drawn some other birds, though. :)

Haha, thanks! But no, just a good old regular mechanical pencil. :)

My goodness this would look amazing in pastel/velour! Are you going to do it still? I love the detail here, and the play of dark vs light areas. That mane is incredible. I find manes in graphite so difficult... very easy to make them look either flat and lifeless, or overdefine the strands. Yours looks effortless and is full of natural movement. I would watch out if you do re-do this one, because at the moment the proportions of the chest, shoulder and back are (to my eye, at least) a little bit too large compared to the neck and head. But it is still a really beautiful piece!

Yes, I still plan on doing it most definitely! (And it will hang above my bed after it's completed.) It'll be a nice Christmas break project or summer even--just when I have the time to do so! But thank so much! And thank you for pointing out the proportion issues as well--didn't really see those before. ;)
