    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.

    Drawing:


    Reference:


    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 fun...here 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, 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...
