This is stunning.
As a lifelong horse owner myself, due to experience I know a lot about anatomy, and this is not only correct, but perfect in that sense.
The muscle shading on the face I find particularly accurate, as well as that on the neck.
I adore the stylised way in which you have drawn the mane and tail, and let's face it, who doesn't like war ponies?
If there was one thing in which to mention, maybe you should have considered setting the ears forward a touch.
Other than that, this is an awe-inspiring drawing with precise attention to detail and a beautiful, finished quality.
You must excuse my critique writing, as I am new to writing them and I am terribly sorry if I have offended you in any way.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
135 out of 138 deviants thought this was fair.

The shading is so real, and the teal accents are amazing. The wide eyes show so much fierce bravery and power. The beads are glowing and only someone with an artist's eye would ever notice. The way she/he is standing makes you feel like she/he is winning, like he/she is a model of power and energy, and doesn't stop or waver. He/she is a leader, and no-one is afraid when this one is in control. The matching eyes and feathers and neckpiece seems to me as though it symbolizes the bravery in this horse. The ability to be fierce, ever doubting if he/she will win. The ability and belief of flight, flying and the freedom of the birds. This horse looks as though it never is afraid of loosing. If any picture ever should be used as a symbol of bravery and freedom this would definitely be the one.
