Beautiful work James.

That horse is amazingly well textured. The set and the general are also very cool.

Hi James,

First off great work on the textures on these two models. Lots of luscious detail and great work on the mane of the horse.

First off the horse's head is very small for the size of it's body, the eye is a little bit too large and placed too high on the head.
The neck is also very thick with the front part of the neck a little bit too convex.

The hind quarters look very nice but I would have the back dip more in the center and rise over the rear. There could also be more curvature on the chest, you want to avoid flatness in these areas.

Also, the man is standing very high compared to the horse, even though the horse may be modeled according to a smaller type of Mongolian breed he would still not be that tall especially since your male character appears to be somewhat short in stature.

For a good horse anatomy reference, Ken Hultgren's "The Art of Animal Drawing" is a great book.

Hopefully this has been helpful,
