Just a random drawing of a Thoroughbred :)

This was pretty fun to draw :) Took me maybe 20 minutes?

Very nice! You've done a super job of getting the proportions accurate, very well done :) I think you should start trying to shade and tone properly now rather than just colouring in in one direction.
When you start off with learning to shade and tone, just use the side of your pencil to blend it rather than trying straight away to go all in and draw each hair as its much harder to get tonal values when you're not sure on them yet.
I'd start by looking at the reference photo, and picking out where the darkest points of the horse are, then shading those in, from there, gradually work out towards the highlighted areas and you'll have a much more three dimensional drawing ;)

^^^^^^ I agree with Kayty. You've got the basic outline and the proportions down-very nice!

Thanks! Yeah, I'm not too good at shading yet but I'll work at it :)

Agreed ^^^^^ I have also (very recently) discovered that dark shadows are necessary to give that drawing a 3 dimentional look. For instance, there are almost always very dark and sharp shadows under the straps of the bridle or halter that I used to not even attempt to draw at the risk of making the shadows stick out like a sore thumb, but I learned that such shadows do make the drawing as a whole "pop". But in the meantime, I agree to go back and find areas that just happen to be "darker" and blend them with the side of your pencil. As with anything, practice makes perfect. I have had to create a lot of flops in order to advance my art skills. I definitely think you are on the right path and ready to challenge yourself. Can't wait to see more drawings from you.
