I think I'm getting better... slowly!

So during the holidays I've drawn quite a few pictures. I've started tracing the outlines from my computer screen which is making my drawings look heaps better. Sadly, I've drawn very few horsey pictures :( Anyway, I recently drew 3 pictures within a week of each other and I can see the improvement between them.
Picture One:


Picture Two:



Picture Three:


And then here's a random Appaloosa

Very nice. I have not tried tracing off my computer. 'Fraid I'll damage the screen by pushing down with the pencil.

Did you also trace the Appy? The shading on all of them is very good!

Thanks :) I just use it to get a faint detail I can work from. Sometimes it's hard though because the photos pixelate when I zoom in (the second picture is less than half an A4 page).
And I used my school's lightbox to trace the appy

Really nice work!
