Midwest my girl, it's absolutely lovely, you just keep going the way you're going and you are going to have a beautiful beautiful drawing. I love the intent, focused expression, it comes through very strong even unfinished. Very very nice!

Mustang~thanks =)
Toadflax~ thanks as well! I worked on it a tad more after I posted and lightened it up a tad (the horse isn't as dark in actuality) and I think it looks better. Fingers crossed!

Wow you've taken quantum laps, this is fantastic. The bridle work is flawless.

Whew! I'm glad you like the bridle. Usually tack isn't my favorite thing to tackle at all. I get rather lazy (much like with backgrounds) and rush through it. But there are so many on this forum that draw amazing tack that looks so lifelike...backgrounds too (i.e toadflax )
So I'm becoming very pleased with this one and hopefully it continues to go well. I'd hate to get to the finishing touches and mess it up

That's funny, I love drawing tack as a rule, saddles particularly but bridles and even halters. They seem like little effort for major return to me--. Backgrounds, well, you gotta just bite the bullet with them.
I have nightmares about screwing up a drawing one way or another after about 20 hours of work--you know, a misplaced cup of coffee or something, anything, it's all just too horrible to consider.

wow! I wish I could draw realistic horses. I can only draw them somewhat realistic but with a cartoonish quality to it.
