Question Arabian Drawing.. :/

Okay well I was trying to draw this Arabian horse just for the fun of it... let's just say I stink at the back legs ... and front xD If anyone wants to try to fix and redo her back legs I would be very appreciative xD I love constructive criticism too!
This is the picture I was basing the legs on:

I think its great. You have the right shape to the legs just make the bottem part of the leg(where it meets the hoof) make it come out a little insted of dipping in. If you kno what I mean. With a bit of shade or coloureding in right place this drawing could be really effective. Well done

Very nice! I wouldn't be too fussy about the back legs since you're drawing is very much a cartoon style. I think it's lovely and with a drawing of this style you don't want to worry about getting everything perfect or it spoils the effect.

Just a quick comment on the side though, when you're drawing in pencil like this, drawing very lightly until you get to the exact shape you want, then you can go over a bit darker to do the outline. Otherwise you end up with liens across the paper where you've tried to rub out lines that were drawn in too dark ;)

Thanks I finished it.. not shaded or anything like that because I suck at those sort of things xD
Oops put them in the wrong order xD So first is the final copy colored and finished and then the next is the leg done and paint spots added

Lovely!! I think thought because it's a very bold drawing, you need to make the colour bolder too. Go back and make them a bit darker I think and then it'll be perfect

Will do! XD

Very nice improvement on the back legs. I've been working at improving how I draw the legs and hooves for a long time and still don't feel I've succeeded. But don't sweat it. Just keep working and practicing and you'll always make me on that one =)

Too **** right you are!!!! I improve every time I draw something. I don't sweat it out too much over one drawing, if I overwork something it just gets worse and I get frustrated so I 'fake' it a bit. Then the next time I draw I know where I went wrong last time and don't make that mistake again ;)

I hear you about the overworking and frustrating bit. Your paper ends up all smudged and you're worse off than when you started. I have to walk away for a bit then come back-sometimes it turns into days before I go back to it. But when I do I realize that my 'monumental' screw up really wasn't that bad. Or whatever was so terribly out of proportion really wasn't. It's like when you work on a puzzle and every piece starts looking alike. You have to do something else or find another thing to focus on so you perception can readjust.
