Horses. Yes. I'll admit it. I was that cliché horse-crazy girl who sketched horses in all of her notebooks, carried around horse binders, wore horse shirts, etc.
When I was a kid, I lived and breathed horses. I grew up on a small fifteen acre farm that had horses, I rode my first horse when I was two, and I got my first horse when I was seven. When I wasn't riding and competing in 4-H in the summer, I was drawing horses, reading about horses, and watching horses on TV. There has never been a time in my life where I wasn't around horses,, so it's no small wonder that horses would end up integrated so deeply into my artwork.
A short time ago, I started hearing reviews comparing Faber-Castell Polychromos with Prismacolor colored pencils. Naturally, being the curious individual that I am, I wanted to try them out. Being the OCD person that I am, I read reviews, studied results, and ended up buying a full set for my birthday (Yay). I also had heard a lot about Stonehenge paper, so I thought it a good opportunity to try the two together (which I would find was a big mistake). Before I go into the review on Polychromos pencils, though, here are my thoughts on Prismacolor.
