Learning to draw Horse/dogs. Critque it please.

I have just started learning to draw horses and dogs ans just started shading them in. I would love to hear your comments and views and critque on this artwork.


I have only been shading in for 2 days so my artwork can still improve. Anyways here the pictures are.

These photos are not very good quality bcos they were taken from my webcam.
These photos have been mirriored as it was taken on webcam.

Hope you like them and I would love to hear the truth.






Thanks

Like the dog ;)

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Actually the truth is those are VERY good for beginner's drawings. You seem to have a natural understanding of proportion and expression, and that is a huge part of making a drawing look appealing and natural. In fact the foal's head particularly is lovely, expressive and life-like.
Keep drawing, keep observing and also look at other art work, what appeals to you, and see if you can understand how the artist achieved whatever it is you like about the picture. That's not cheating or copying, that's learning something and your technique will always be unique and your own.

don't worry, spiders, I keep house casually.
