This is finished now as I was afraid if I picked at it I would lose what I had. It is an Australian rider on a red roan whaler (I think thats how you spell it) just kicking back and riding for fun. I lugged it outside for the picture and it washed out some colour but inside it was too dark......ugh

WOW!!! Excellent job on the horse and rider. He feels 'real'. The only problem area I see is the mans face.. but I don't know how to help you with it.
A few of those grassy colors tossed in his shadows might be cool.

MUCH better image! Now it looks like a roan and not a buckskin :P Sorry for the faux pas earlier.

Looks great and I love your loose style!
