This is my first attempt using chalk pastel. I have neglected drawing for many years and have never had any formal instruction. I am very interested in real feedback- what can I improve? What's good about it? What's bad? Let me know. Thanks! - tom.

Hi Tom,

I like the composition very much. I think you have captured that lean muscular look very well and I like how you were also able to give it that shiny coat which I imagine is very difficult. I like the action/movement, it is a very dramatic pose. The only thing that I see as an issue is that the legs are a little difficult to discern, maybe fading the back legs to separate them from the foreground would have helped. Anyway a very nice piece, thank you for sharing!

Hi Tom...
For a new medium, I thing you did great... The Composition for sure, is great. and you did well in ensuring you didn't lose the form in general... Use some High & Low tones to further add definition throughout however I think the legs need more attention.
May your world be painted in the Brightest of colors!
