Hello everyone - new artist here. This is my first horse portrait and is still in progress. It is of my mare, "Lusty" (I didn't name her), reference photo first:



Outline and first layer:



Second layer:



On the next layer I'll deepen the shadows and accent the facial features some more. What else can I do with it?

The photos are really light and somewhat blurry, but could just be my computer, so I'm having a hard time seeing your details. I think there's a definite likeness to Lusty, I'm thinking maybe the eye is slightly too large in comparison to her photo. Overall, though, great job!

Yes, the eye has given me fits! It is still very light though - I do that all the time and need to correct it.

Its very good, I myself own a horse and use him alot in my GCSE studies. The eye is quite bug, but that is easily fixed and its still quite light. Overall though its a lovely picture adn you have a beautiful horse.
