American Quarter Horse portrait

I’ve wanted to draw a white on black image for a while and I chose this American Quarter Horse for my first attempt.

For the drawing I used a white Derwent Drawing pencil for overall tone, Caran D’Ache Luminance and Faber Castell Polychromos whites for finer detailing, with some black of the Derwents where necessary for a softer edge.
