I planned to try something new with ATC for this exchange at CAG: galloping horse hooves, parts of horse faces, or something like that. Instead, I ended up with four whole horse heads.

Maybe the fact that Newborn is taking longer than anticipated to get finished has something to do with it, I don’t know.

Here are the heads:

Artist Trading Card Exchange at CAG

We had an artist trading card exchange at today’s CAG meeting. Here is my contribution:

My trading card - colored pencil on illustration board, 2.5" x 3.5"
colored pencil on illustration board, 2.5″ x 3.5″

That’s my first experience with the illustration board, I am not sure if I liked it. The thing has no tooth at all, very weird. Not sure who got my card, the exchange took place at the very end of the meeting and was a little hurried.

And this is what I got from a fellow CAG member, Sharon LaBouff:

My trading card - colored pencil on illustration board, 2.5" x 3.5"

I am very pleased to have Sharon’s little piece.
