Oh yes. lol I used to try to learn to draw - and always started with horses. . .and the nuances on their faces and necks always got me. . .and trounced me. As I got older, I realized horses were probably *NOT* the creature to start on and its probably no wonder I never got anywhere with my drawing. Though, honestly, cats aren't much better, too liquid and boneless. . .
But yeah, you did an awesome job. Now you've done it, you can probably do it again a bit easier too.
