mare and foal

The few drawings I've posted in this forum have been non-horse ones so I've finally done a horse one! Any comments/critiques welcomed. :)

This is REALLY good wow.
You've got some talent! :)

The only thing I see is that the horse on the left's head looks a little out of proportion.
But im really picky, so it could just be me.

Either way your really good.

How so, do you think the muzzle is too small?

Yes, the reference photo I used was found while browsing Photobucket. In the photo they had halters on, though. I wasn't brave enough to try those. :)

Yeah, kind of.
His nose / muzzle seems too small compared to the size of the cheekbone.

Compared to the cheekbone, the muzzle seems it should be a little thicker.


But YOUR WELCOME. :)

I love your shading and details. Those horses have such definition. It kind of reminds me of some of Joe Andoe's recent paintings. : D

The only "proportional mishap" with the mare that I see is that her neck seems really thin. But, in the same respects, there are also horses with necks that look as that. (There's a young filly posted for sale here that has an oddly thin neck.)

Otherwise, I find it unbearably adorable! <3 I especially appreciate your attention to detail; hinting to fur texture without over-doing it.

Thanks! I've not heard of him, but I like his work! :)

Thanks Creampuff! You could be right about the neck. I'll post the reference photo so you can see where I was coming from. I appreciate the input because horses are very difficult for me and I'm always looking for ways to improve.

Well if you would like, you can PM me for critique whenever you would like. I also have access to a plethora of tutorials and other resources (including free-to-use stock images of horses) that I can refer you to. I'll be more than happy to help!
