Thanks everyone. It's definitely one of my favourites

Anyway, reference picture is below. It was hard to get the smaller details in there because I blew the reference pic up to A4 size and printed it.. resulting in a VERY pixelated image.

I, too, find the tail to be exquisitely done. I dont' think I've seen anyone here do a better tail.

The only thing I can see is that the bridle might use some minor shading; it would not be a flat white like that on all parts becasue it wraps around the horse (show roundness with shading) and is affected by light and shadows , as is all the horse.

How big is this drawing?

ETA now that I see the ref. Photo, I can see that the bridle has NO shading. Nevermind!

Thanks! I do pride myself on my ability to draw tails and "messy" hair, after sitting down and drawing many pictures of these three guys... xD

Haven't measured it, it's on a piece of paper about A3 size, maybe a little bigger, but the actual drawing could fit on an A4 piece of paper.
