Haflinger Love by emele-the-strange Haflinger Love by emele-the-strange
A Haflinger in colour!
I don\'t mind the face so much, but the mane is terrible...oh well, things can always be better, right? I have much room for improvement...
The reference is from a Poster Book of Horses.

Derwent pencils on sketch paper.

I love the mane against the darker coloured head. It looks fab. Don't put your work down the mane is simple but really effective.

Thank you so much! I thought it looked a little bit...flat compared to the head, but...:)

It might have just been brushed. It definately doesn't look knotty! Manes tend to look less...bulky when brushed well in my opinion they do. It looks fine. Although other people have told you not to put your work down, me being one of them, there is one good point about knowing that there are ways you could improve as if you thought all the drawings were per perfect and you couldn't improve them you would never improve, that's collectively speaking not specifically aimed at you cos you know where you go wrong (from your initial comments) and are definately improving!
I hope you understand what I have babbled on about and that I haven't dug myself a hole!

Thank you! I do understand it...I realize there is much room for improvement, and I generally only point out those things rather than what I like about the drawings. It's just the way I tend to do thing...:P

I love the mane actually! There are just enough lines to give the impression of long hair without it being overdone.
