Drew this to my former neighbor (It is his dog).
Caricature of my Pets.
Horses and deer are one of my weaknesses when it comes to art. I made it to practice a bit.

The first one is shows a basic understanding of perspective with respect to the leaves in the foreground as compared tot he grass in the background and middle ground
You caricatures are charming and show the animals unique personalities. I really like them a lot.
The last one in my opinion needs some sort of shadow to firmly place the animal in the ground. and the detail you used in the grass when compared to the manga type highlighting in the hair is not consistent. I suggest reworking the hair and tree bark in the foreground. The lighting is lovely and the line work well done.
I hope this helps. Keep up the hard work.

I agree with what Laylo-Dred said.
Futher more about the first painting you should keep in minde what kinde of brush storkes you want to use. In this painting I see a mix of hard edges and really soft edges. Try to keep this concistend, its not that one of the 2 is better or worse, just a different look. But try not to use them both at the same time.
Personally I like hard edges more and then gruadually let the collor flow over but still being able to see the brushstrokes. this way you can also illustrate teh form of the object without really drawing/paintig it.
The second one I really like =D just one little detail, please make a groundplane for it, dont let them float in outerspace :p
As for the 3rd it seems a bit rushed to me. Try not to rush your works, if you don't feel like continuing on the painting that is fine. Leave it alone and maybe finish it an other time, but its no use to post unfishend drawings in your sketchbook. It does not show you current level and so you will not get good feedback.
Hope this will help you, keep it up.
