Very nice. Good detail. The only thing that jumps out at me is that the face of the horse and the cheek seem to have totally different looks with the cheek-piece of bridle being the dividing line, making it look like perhaps it doesn't belong on the same animal. Perhaps there is a way to add a bit of the same light and shine to the cheek so it seems to blend a bit more seamlessly. Oh how irritating! It makes me have at least a 100 word minimum so I will use it to say "Overall a striking piece"!
What do you think?

Amazing! The moment I saw full version I wanted to pet its head! ;p So either - I'm a bit dumb, or it's a great work! For both of us I hope it's the latter! :D
