I'm working on this right now for someone at my barn of their Hanoverian Gelding, thing is I feel like with art pieces I never put my full ability into them. For example I worked SO hard to get this lineart where it is, and now I just want to be done with the picture so I can feel that the coloring will subconciously und up kind of rushed.

In this same vein if I don't spend a lot of time on the lineart, I tend to feel bad and try to make up with it by doing a super detailed coloring. So along with any critiques on the lineart before I start coloring I was wondering if anyone had any advice on staying motivated? :\

I'm just working off the photo I'm given. It's not my place to critique the photo itself.

It looks great so far, love the details in the lines.

I get what you mean about the motivation. Sometimes I go days without drawing cause I just have no motivation but then some days I can throw out 2 or 3 drawings at a time. Sometimes to get motivation I listen to my fav songs or watch an animated movie, like Spirit, that makes be want to draw.

Can't wait to see how this turns out!
