Black Caviar sketch

For an art assignment: I chose to do something to do with a racehorse, so I decided to draw Black Caviar ;) Quite happy with the end result, definitely one of my better works.
Excuse the quality of this one, the photo didn't show the outline very well so I put some effect on it.

Tail, mane, head and some details added. Taken on my iPod so the quality isn't that great.

Chest and neck filled in. Again, taken on my iPod.

"Nelly" finished. Rump was incredibly hard to shade, as well as the back legs. Had a hard time 'lifting' them off the page. Taken on iPod again.

And lastly, the end result. Not too happy with the photo, taken under artificial lighting.

Critique is welcome

Oh... I knew I forgot something. I'll upload the reference picture when I'm back on a computer.

I know for a fact that it would take me more than 60 years and I still wouldn't get it right or anywhere near what the OP has produced

That is awesome! Excellent work! I especially like the tail for some reason. Very realistic. Got any more to share?
