    Phantom.

    Good sphere. Now, just add a bit more to make it a tiny bit bolder; the dark area darker and the lightest area lighter. Most materials create a bit of shine reflection when light is shined on them. It's the bright spot you see on an apple, for instance. I call it the "shine spot". It is what makes an eye look real. Try adding that to the sphere. It will be at the place which is closes to the light source .

    LOOK at the ears. Again if you look at the whole horse and not worry if you have the outline you will do better.

    This is what I mean. I threw this together in 3 minutes.

    What do you mean the whole horse?

    Drawing in outline like you did just shows that...the outline.

    It may give you a area to work in like paint by numbers but it does not actually see the horse.

    If you ever get to the library go look up the book..The Agony and the Ecstasy ( not sure if I spelled this right).

    It is the story of Michelangelo. The first part tells how he went to the morgue, cut out the innerds of people to understand how the body was made up. He "understood" the WHOLE human being and he knew the structure of the whole being.

    Kinda gruesome but fascinating at the same time.

    You have done a fine job of your horse head. You will get better, its a given. When I draw it becomes a bit fragmented, I like to perfect each item one by one. For example I would study the mouth of this particular horse..the details that give it character and proportion and try to perfect it, then move on to the eyes, the ears etc. Wonderful job so far. Keep plugging away.

    I have an update on the horse's head, which by the way I have called Izzie;)



    And I was doing a card for my BFF and I drew a pony inside so I'll post that too:



    I didn't worry about the shading or anything in this one just so that it looks like a pony.
