No way! You drew a Friesian? I loooooove it! They are my most favorite breed in the world! Ever since I first saw one, I fell in love with their black coloring and long, curly main; and of course who can pass down the lovely feathers? This is just gorgeous! It captures the breed's beauty wonderfully.

Haha! Glad you like it! Thank you :hug:!! They are pretty awesome horses, it's a little shameful that I hadn't drawn/painted one in a year and a half... XD

The colors are beautiful! One of my favorite things about Canvas paper is the little bumps... strange, isn't it :dummy: I like the fluffy head and the flowy mane.

Beautiful! I love your use of color, and the way that the mane fades off to look like it's blurred in motion. :) I'm amazed at how much detail you can get in only three hours!

You're welcome! :) I totally have that problem, lol. I get way too picky about details and end up leaving a lot of projects unfinished... XD
