New here, sharing some of my work.

I started dabbling in charcoal portraits in high school. Have been messing with them off and on again ever since over the last 16 or so years. havne't really done that many. I just recently did my first animal...a horse a couple years ago as an experiment.

Really nice work! I look forward to seeing more of it. I am terrible at charcoal and am impressed at your abilities with it.

WELCOME!

Thanks All,

A friend of mine asked me if I'd be willing to draw a picture of his three dogs. I've never done dogs before so it'll be a learning experience for me.

I'm sure you'll do fine. You could do a work-in-progress thread and us animal artists could help you out if you get stuck.

That would be an interesting concept, a work-in-progress thread. I may do that for one of my regular portriats to show my technique for laying out the picture.
