digital art critique

Very first digital coloring. The line art was put up on howrse as free use. And I colored it for the first time ever.

How is it?

And can you give me any advice on how to do the eye? And what it should look like? Any critique and anything I could change?

Here is how I did the eye just playing around, I also blended the colors a bit more.

If you do highlighting, you want to keep in mind a consistant direction of light. So, for example, it looks like the light might be coming from the upper left? Not sure. So, set the light source, then think which parts of the horse would catch and reflect more light , thus have a highlight, and which parts would then have a shadow.

And personally, the dark is too blueish for me. I mean the tail and legs.

I hope that's not too blunt of a critique. I am not a digital artist.

No critique is ever to harsh tiny! I wanted the points to be super super dark. However. I am using GIMP. And I couldn't see my lines when I used black, so therefore I wouldn't know where to erase to. It was very frustrating lol so hence the grey color

as for my lightsource I was trying to just get it from above, but I am still learning to highlight :) and thank you!

Here is a wolf I did, that I am quite proud of. But I however feel that I know the anatomy of horses better and where the highlights should be.

My biggest critique is to have the lightest lights and the darkest darks. Build it up with the colors and it tends to look pretty good. Just you can't be scared about doing it.
