I want to have the effect that if you touched him you could feel the shape of his body the curves of his muscles the silkiness ness of his coat the hardness of his hooves .
Apart from all that I am quite pleased with it !
I know what you mean about being a little less flat, but it is still a beautiful painting. I think you will be able to improve that, now you are managing to finish them, and find different ideas on how to get a better 3D effect.
Why not start a thread called Muddy's Art? If you allow us to see the different stages of your work, as you did with this one, it will give you more confidence. I also think you may encourage others to try, because there has been a lot of interest in this one.
Whatever you do, don't stop, because you have a talent and have impressed many of us with you ability.
BTW the horse in the video was lovely..... I just thank heaven that the horses, we had here, had their manes trimmed.... because I sometimes fed them apples dipped in molasses!
