Equiniphile- I'll try to find the original sketch and take a photo, the shading is much better than it looks, but still needs attention.
Tinyliny- Thanks for the helpful suggestions! I do need to work on the hocks, and muscling, and I totally see where you're coming from about the rear pastern- that was a total oversight, and something I'm not likely to repeat.
I really, really struggle with getting the ears correct, I always have. Any suggestions? I don't draw from a model or photo, but from memory and the overall impression I want to make. I've tried looking at photos of ears, and of nostrils, and around the eyes, but I can never get it right from a picture! What's worked for you in the past?
