Sandokan IV by AmandaDrage Sandokan IV by AmandaDrage
Portrait of Andalusian stallion Sandokan IV. The reference photo is by Robin Benefiel aka ~hoodsey - used with kind permission! (This particular photo isn't on dA, but check out ~hoodsey's gallery for more photos of him. He is pretty awesome.)

You might remember I drew this stallion for my 2012 Christmas card image...

I think this one is better though ;)

Derwent Drawing colour pencils, pastels, and conte on A3 velour paper.

Bahhhhh DO IT! I am finding the pastel/CP/velour paper so enjoyable. I almost gave up on my oil stuff. :XD:

The only thing I don't like abotu the velour (and the reason I stopped using it) was because it's soo not very durable. I'm going to try this colourfix paper. Then maybe I'll jump back to velour for a little while :). (especially since I have a bunch anyway)

How do you mean? I find if I press too hard it can get icky but it's okay for me so far! I want to try Colourfix too, and suedeboard, and pastelbord... so many to try out! I have two large pieces of sanded paper to try, I have no idea what brand they are though. I'm worried with that and Colourfix that I'd have no pastels left at the end. LOL
