Arrow My first ever horse in colour

So i've been drawing horses forever, but I only use graphite pencils. I've never really tried coloured pencil, so I decided to have a go. I kinda started it like a year ago, then lost it. I found it yesterday and decided to finish it. It's not great, but I thought i'd share as it's a first for me.

Feel free to critique but please don't kill me. I'll try and get better I promise!

Here it is:

Not too bad actually. I'd suggest adding a little more black for shadowing in the legs, but for the most part you did pretty good layering and changing colors ;)

Lol, I hate colored pencils, but you did an awesome job! You can also use watercolor pencils for better shading, I've found. I dip them in water, and viola! Shading!

I love it! The slightly "choppy" feeling of the shading gives it real energy! Was it hard to do?

Thanks, I totally see what you mean about the legs, I might try touching them up. I think I have some watercolour pencil around that I had to buy for my art GCSE, so I could try Indigosblue's suggestion.

ooh, i'm glad you say that, I wasn't sure if I should try and blend it more, but I kinda knew I would overwork and ruin it completely, so I kinda stepped back and left it there. I found it pretty difficult. I normally work with graphite pencil so I can rub it out or smudge it to blend, which I can't do with colour. I guess the choppy shading is because I shaded the same as I would with graphite but can't smudge it afterwards! Haha

I'm pretty disappointed with the leatherwork though. I think I did a pretty poor job on it. I think I could have done her eye better too
