Happy birthday kassouminou! by Howlingreaches

This is really good HowlingReaches! I love the way you have experimented with the shading to make it look realistic. The hoofprints are fabulous and they are in the right proportion with his feet, a hard thing to do! The eye looks realistic, and you got the mane and tail right. I know it is like this in the reference picture but the position is quite strange. He has a lack of shadow and, correct me if I'm wrong, he seems to have walked into the arena through the fence, unless there is a gate there. I like the muscle shading although the 'breast' looks quite strange. Overall, very good job!

(I tried not to be too harsh)

Thank you! The position is strange, but I wanted a bit of a challenge so I went for it! I totally forgot to put his shadow in, which I'm gonna fix. Lol! Doing art at 5am doesn't always work out so well. The breast does look strange, but I was trying to follow the picture. Any ideas as so how I can make the breast shading look better? The fence is on the other side :P
Thank you for taking it easy on me :hug:
