ok you have talent your second attempt looks great except this is what i'm noticeing , you ears are too small , your mane and fore lock look fine but if they are they don't look much like the mane and forelock in the picture , for this I would segust a thing my sister does , flip the reference pic and the paper your drawing on upside down this way you draw what you see not what you think it should look like ,but your horses nose looks better than any horse nose i've draw , so yea also don't forget to finsh the details like shading and such hope I didn't repeat anything I didn't have time to write my reply and read all of the other replys though I did read some, and don't give up you have talent if you keep trying you could be great

It's not finished yet. I still need to do the mane and I might do graphite on it.

Thanks, guys

You need to study actual horses, looking at the structures in the head. I used to sit and draw just the ears or just the eyes then where they are in relation to the jaw bone, the angle, etc. Because I was never please with my work I switched to cartooning horses and have never looked back.
