This took a little while to draw. The horses were drawn from Halflingers. Colored with pastels, a pallette of nine colors! It makes you pay more attention to how colors flow, so I've enjoyed having a more limited selection.

i love the colors but i do think that the legs are a bit stubby
the mane and tail look gorgeous

Great shading and coloring i like it but something about the proportion of the head isnt quite right
i mess up all the time on that course, mine are a lot worse than yours
over all good job

:-) Alicia Aryenne Hansen replies: "Thank you. Mine used to be a lot work than they are now, though . . . Just keep practicing. The head doesn't really look off to me, but then, I don't live around horses. I just wish I did . . ."

Aww! So cute, I really like their short feet and long mane and tail =D The colouring is also wonderful! You know, I live around horses and I think the head is just great and exactly as it should be =) Anyway, I hope you'll keep it up ^_^ Well done!
