Those are just lovely! :) Nice work.

They're VERY nice... but personally, I wouldn't buy or trade for them. Here are my reasons, and these are things you could improve on a bit (if you think you need it):

1. The head... it just looks a bit warped. Not deformed... but warped... like if you had taken a picture, put it on photoshop, and warped it a bit. Maybe too smudged? I dunno...

2. The topline and the neck. They could use a bit less smudging, and a bit more shaping. :D

But... well... I couldn't do that for a LONG time... haha...

Do you use a tablet? Or a mouse? Because sometimes that makes a difference in how things end up.

They're great though!!!

No artist is perfect. But I disagree about your first comment completely. The head on the first horse is oddly angled which could give a "warped" effect. This style is not realistic so things are not going to be perfect. Thanks for your critique? :?: :|

I like em! I think the smudging and style is awesome. I still wish I could draw horses better...

Some styles just aren't for everyone...

No, I'm not expecting things to be perfect. Not in the least bit. But there's a difference between having something perfect, and having something that is at least of decent quality. You have the body down. You're GREAT at it. I just look at it and can't help but admire it. I had a couple of things to critique (that I think a lot of artists could work on). Most good artists WILLINGLY take critique, perhaps explain a bit why it's a certain way, and then try and improve.

Personally, I really like your older style, because it looks more real, and it's less warped. These tend to be very oversmudged, giving it the appearance of a horse that was drenched in oil. It'll take a lot longer, but will most definately be worth it if you could take the time to add a bit more detail here and there, and less over-smudging.

You have ENORMOUS amounts of talent. I seriously can see you getting commisions in the near future to paint all sorts of people's horses. But... just like everyone else, you have some things to work on.

Perfection is the goal. Professional artists don't say "things aren't going to be perfect" or "no artist is perfect", because you AIM for perfection. Doesn't mean that you'll hit it, but at least you'll try your hardest for it, instead of doing half-jobs (not that you DID any half-jobs here) and then put up "no artist is perfect" as an excuse.

You can choose to dismiss my critique... or you could choose to accept it, and try and work better.

Hey... I'm trying. I'm no where near where you are. Colors hate me for some odd reason. But at least I aim for perfection, and take in all the critique that I can get, instead of just saying "no artist is perfect" and leave it at that.
