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? :\

Poor example of good dressage head position.

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!
