On A Dare

I was showing my husband WolvesRealm's drawings and was saying how I wish I could draw like that. He gave me a sheet of paper and made me attempt to draw a horse.

Any input on what I did wrong or right would be appreciated. This is with a number 2 pencil and a regular sheet of paper. Sorry about the craptastic pictures. My good camera's batteries are charging.

I also tried a dog. Don't really like it though...

What did you draw the horse from?
From your head or from a reference?

I started out by googling how to draw a horse. Used a bunch of shapes and then when I got it to the outline pretty much I google imaged horse drawings. He was supposed to be a Friesian but I couldn't get his head or neck right. So I changed him to a draft cross or Paint/Friesian. The main reference I used was the Quarter Horse model for shading.

The dog was done from google imaging a bunch of dog drawings. You can't see it on the picture but in the drawing his tongue and nose have texture bumps.

Hey, I have seen worse . Mine in particular. My horses always ended up looking like deformed dogs with funky ass legs. LOL. Looks to me like you have a good start for a beginner.
