Forgive me if this doesn't make sense, never done a critique like this before.

I like that you have the girl lying down over her horse, and the little touches on the horse like the lowered neck and its ears titled back.

The anatomy on the horse is very well done, although the belly looks a little tubby, but over all very well done.

The girl's anatomy seems a little off. the arm looks a little too stiff and a little long. maybe try adding a bend at the elbow, that might help. her hand looks a bit strange too. adding some definition lines around the knuckle area will help break things up (using other people's hands is a good way to have an idea f how to draw it, but if you can't find someone, your own hand and putting in that position will definitely help). her head also looks as if it's floating just above her horse's neck. you could draw her chin "interacting" with the mane by adding a few wavy lines over the bottom of her chin. her back end looks a smidgen flat too. filling that out a little might help balance her out.

the shading here looks very nice! it has a touch of realism and a touch of cartoony. really the only negative I can say about the coloring is it seems a little too bright, especially for being sunrise. that's a simple fix though. any photo programs can fix this (or you can always download GIMP).

all in all a very nice and cute painting! keep it up! c:

Beautiful work! :aww: Watercolors are so tricky to work with, and you did a lovely job painting with them. I just love the shading on the roof and horse. Such a cute expression on Claire, too. Great piece!

I love this one, reminds me of good times when I was younger. I wouldn't do that with my current horse because he has wayyy too much energy but once I had a great gelding that didn't mind if I hung out with him all day. :heart:

I would have to agree, I took some pictures off my mare today and her ears kept swiveling back and forward, trying to pinpoint the clicking nose behind her head. Then she shied at a bicyclist...I had to laugh at that one. I pointed at her head at him but she didn't see him until he was coming by us.

At what speed did you shoot off him? I love that fact that you got to do that...I am afraid of what might happen if I tried that.

oh my!! XD your horse sounds wonderful, lol.

i shot stationary. I wanted to start with that to see how he would handle it. you know, start small and work your way up. never got to go at any speed XD

thanks!!! it took me a while on those details, but the friend i did it for is real epic, so it was worth it.
merci!! i wanted that warm tone, and i did my best with the shading. it doesn't fit on the scanner so i had to take a pic of it...which kind of messed up the colors, but i guess it'll have to do.
