Chanda your point about the mane is right. It should be more messed ....grrrrr...I'll remember that on the next one. He does look like he has been groomed. Sometimes I just don't see the obvious.
As for the yellow, again it's my photography. I can't seem to capture the colors of the picture in the photo correctly.
Right now I'm playing with sketches for the next picture. I have a scene in mind. Here is some of the components....mind you this is freehand from head to hand - no grid or picture - and I'm not good at drawing, so I am hoping I can improve them with my painting. Right now they are on paper, I'll put (trace) them on the canvas when I'm happy with them.
