Cremello Lusitano GIMP Drawing

This is the first time I've ever made anything like this. I've dabbled with painting on GIMP, but I've never done a horse profile!

This is a drawing of the 2004 Lusitano stallion, Alvarinho Interagro. He's in the 2010 Lusitano Collection Auction, on this page.
I have a speed paint video of this, but I found out that my camera was set on 70% quality and compressed it to absolute ugliness! i-i
This picture took around three hours; I'm still slow at it. It was also done entirely with a mouse, I don't like tablets.

I might do a request thread, but I'll see what kind of time I have.

Thanks! You're too kind. x3
To the contrary, I actually have a really unsteady hand, which is why I don't use tablets. I can't draw anything on paper, past a doodle of Pac-Man! I guess I'm good with the mouse because it's laying flat on the table and can't move! ~

I'm going to give this to Freddy's owner, since we've given up the half lease. I think I like it better, the star is right on. And I'm proud of that nostril...

I have just started doing gimp drawings (I have a digital photo editting class for school, so that is how I got started), and looking at your work as helped me SO much! Gimp is NOT easy, and you make it look GREAT!! I LOVE your work so, so much.

You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.
