    Remember that it's not so much a matter of if the drawing is an accurate representation of the reference photo, as it is whether or not the drawing is a pleasure to look at. If no one had that reference photo to go back and look at, they would have absolutely no complaints. The the drawing itself reads very well as a spirited horse with a beautiful brown eyes. If going back to darken that I called is a risk of smearing a bunch of things and ruining the whole drawing, then abort the mission. Just keep the drawing as it is and give it to your friend. I promise you, she will be D lighted.!

    If I asked ten different people to draw my horse I would get ten different depictions of him. All with their own little quirks.

    I personally think you did a marvelous job, whether the physical features match up 100% or not is a moot point IMO.

    The drawing shows the same presence and spirit of the mare that you see in the picture.

    Regardless, I think ANYBODY would be very happy to have a hand drawn picture of their horse done. Especially done by a close friend. I'm sure she'll love it and good job!

    Hey guys, so I've done a little tweaking, darkened the eye a bit, tried to add her star in (it was a little difficult, having already sealed it), and thickened her muzzle a little bit.

    Whatcha think?

    Wow! The eye is really punchy now! Good for you. Now, don't do anything else, you might end up ruining it. My husband acts as my "brakes" when I am in danger of overworking a drawing/painting. Sometimes, I simply CANNOT stop, even when he warns me to. I just HAVE to go on until I regret it.

    How big is this drawing?

    I indeed left it at that, I gave it to her this morning and she loved it, I'm so happy!

    It was done on A4.

    Thanks for all your lovely advice Tiny!
