More Crayola fun - Horse Eye Study

So every once in a while, every artist needs to sit down and do one study or another. Because I enjoyed my last adventures with Crayola pencil crayons, I decided to explore deeper into the world of colored pencils. I've been meaning to invest in some Prismacolor pencils for a long time now, but as 99.9% of all of my commissions and works are graphite, I've never gotten around to it.

So I've decided to take the time to properly learn about proper coloring and layering. You never know, maybe something will come of it!

I started with what has always been a problem for me, the eye. I found a horse eye tutorial online for colored pencils, so this really isn't just from me, but I loved the result so much that I decided to share.

It's not very big, only about 4 x 4 inches. But I really do love what came of it.


  1. Loving the detail to the point of wanting to get my clippers and nip off the 'wiskers' on it. The groom in me is showing again. *hangs head* lol

  2. Yeah, I'm so jealous of artists, and I'm Super jealous of your talent, Mel!!

    It's a gift, ya know.

    I'm so glad you're selling some commissions.

    keep up the great work!
