A lovely clean lineart free for you to use! Draft Horse Lines - Shire by =ElaineSeleneStock ( Featured by PirateLotus-Stock )
Very beautiful indeed. I believe that it is mostly correct when it comes to anatomy. However, the far hind leg appears to be a little too thick, giving it an elephant like look. The neck is a great thickness and a perfect length of 1 1/2 heads. I congratulate you. :) The head looks a little awkward because the muzzle is too small, but still very good. The eye also appears to be too far up on the head. It should be closer to the cheek and a lot bigger. The chest appears a little odd, but I'm not the most sure about that. I love the feathers! :)

Okay, lovely piece of work. So, here's an explanation for my ratings.

Vision- 5 Stars
It's very hard to get a horse into this position. I congratulate you for getting the legs more or less correct.

Originality- 4 1/2 Stars
I contemplated 4, but decided that due to the extreme lack of Draft Lines that I'd give it a little higher for a score. It's not the most original, but not stereotypical, either. :)

Technique- 5 Stars
I love how the lines are almost, but not really straight.

Impact- 4 Stars
Not the most impacting, but still amazing. :)
