Now I'm not going to give Ellie competition or anything like that lol but I drew this in church today and I want you guys to tell me what you think of it. I can also draw pictures of horses for you guys, if you want. Thanks!


Sorry if it's big

alright.
The major thing I see is that the whole horse is pretty shapeless. You have no distinction between the neck and shoulder, the barrel and the hindquarters, etc. Really show where all the muscles start and stop.

Now, the legs. When you look at a horse's legs, you can see all the joints and all the little bones. Yours are straight up-and-down. In the front, add the knees, the pasterns and the fetlocks. The hind legs shouldn't be so straight. How will the horse move if i doesn't have a hock? I always have trouble with the legs, so I feel the paaaiiiiinnn :P

The head. It just looks like a "U" on a diet. You need to add a chin and jaw.

The neck is far too skinny and short (though it may just be because it goes right into the neck without separation). Study lotsss of horse outlines to get the general shape down. Then, start adding shading and whatnot.
