New Drawing :D

Hi all,
This is my latest drawing, It is also the first drawing that I have tried coloured pencils with!! I really want to start using coloured pencils so if you guys have any advice I would LOVE IT!!

Note: I am only 13 so it isnt very good



Sorry I didnt realise that this one was so blurry






ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

hey :)
Good to see im not the only 13 y.o. On here :)
Ok, well drawing from a picture is a good idea, but drawing from real life is even better :)
If you don't own a horse you can use your model horses as something to copy off, for example if you have breyer, or other plastic horses try copying of them.
The eye seems to be perhaps a little to far up the head and maybe the neck a little thicker, but I can see this is a foal and foals are extremely hard to draw :)

I like it!!

The eye can be moved down a little more, also a bit more toning in the muscles and bone structure of the face would be good I tried somthing new, not sur eif it will help or not

I think your eyes are exceptional, so full of life! I think as was pointed out by Pinto Tess, you just need to focus more on your proportions and location of features such as where the eyes should be placed in the head. I'd love to see you become more bold with your shadows. But seriously, you are off to a great start and I am immediately drawn to the eyes in both pictures.
