Shedreamsbig, I know you are an awesome equine artist :D I'm sure any advise and critique from you would be useful ;) Go ahead ;)

Awsome??? Huh, thats a first!! (lets see if I can see straight with a swollen head!! LOL:D ) thank you for the complimet Line but It wasn't long ago I was in your shoes!! I am still learning too!

Ok since you asked for it!!;)

I think you have done a wounderful job first off!

1. the ears are good but a wee bit short maybe about half a length longer to make them more realistic.

2. the rump is great! But it looks detatched from the front of the horse. try to use a shading line to attatch the two areas also some shading behind the horses right sholder in the arm pitt area my help define the area better.

3. the horses head looks really good the best I have seen from you !!! Great job! But try and make the horses chin more seperate in color from the rump. it will help with the over all affect of the painting.

4. the tail is set in my opinion a little low, if you raise the tail base up it will look less to have a big huge rear end. But I think that it is easy to fix....

5. You are doing great Don't ever give up and if you ever need advice I will be glad to help anytime!! You are going to be just as good as me if not better in no time! Just keep practicing!!
