Critique please :)

I finally finished the drawing of Summer [a horse at my barn]. I can't really change anything now but I'm curious to see what I could have done.



I omitted a few things [martingale] and some things I edited to look more like the "real" Summer...but basically...whaddya think?

I'm not happy with the mane at all...UGH it is totally my Achilles Heel - I feel like my drawings would look better if I could get the mane/tail/forelock to look more lifelike. -_- The owner asked me to "draw it straighter." I wasn't completely sure what that meant so I kinda guessed, haha. She was happy with it though, so I guess that's all that matters!
The bottom of the neck also got messed up...not quite sure what exactly happened.

Just for was my drawing from Chem class of summer with a pen:

Have at it, guys! I love hearing critiques, it's how I get better.

It looks pretty good! Only thing I would have changed would maybe make the bridle a bit darker as well as the shadowing under the bridle. Also, the bit could have been a bit longer.
Shading looks good & I especially like the ears & muzzle.

Thanks guys! Yeah, if I still had the drawing I'd definitely make the bridle "pop" more [it's not so blah in real life but there was room for improvement].

I gave it to the owner and she loveed it. She actually gave me $5, haha [I was doing it for free then she just...gave me five bucks haha].

It is good. One thing that might help with the mane is that in real life it is so thick that it actually casts a shadow on the neck. You could darken the under portion of the hair to help it look more thick.

Wow, beautiful!!!

Wow, I think it looks gorgeous! I'm no great artist but I love it. Also, great tip from tinyliny, I always have the same problem with manes and will definitely be trying that, myself...
