Nice use of the shadows and highlights to make sure Blackjack didn't look flat. Black is the hardest pigment to work with when your trying to make something look 3-D or  2.5-D in your case.

Yes there is such a thing as 2.5-D. The fact that you used outlines (a 2-D effect) and as I mentioned earlier, shadows and highlights (a 3-D effect), proves that
2.5-D exists.

My only suggestion would be to make the wings completely outstretched. I can't tell if they are already folding or are already folded.

Yo, boss! He capered around his stall, his black wings buffeting the air. Ya bring me some sugar cubes? 
"You know those aren't good for you, Blackjack."
Yeah, so you brought me some, huh?
I smiled and fed him a handful.
~~~~ a little wile later.
Blackjack crunched down his sugar cubes. He shook his mane like he was having a sugar seizure.Whoa! Good stuff! Well, boss, you come to your senses and want to fly somewhere, just give a whistle.Ole Blackjack and his buddies, we'll stampede anybody for ya!

Nice, but a little advice… Blackjack is a BOY So try not to do some girly eyes oh and add a little comment… Blackjack: "meh, you see Chiron sleeping in the stables?" Percy: "Um, no…" XDDDD

Well in the Sea of Monsters when he was first introduced, Rick Riordan refered to Blackjack as "she" but then for the rest of the series he's a guy haha.

I love how in all of your pictures of Percy, you always put in his gray streak! People always forget about their gray streaks and I just think they're pretty awesome.

Why did I think Percy was Leo at first? WHAT ANIMAL HAVE I BECOME?!

Percy and Blackjack are one of my favorite human/animal teams ever! No one can beat them, they may come close, but Percy and Blackjack always prevail!

I love Percy and Blackjack. Every hero needs an animal friend in my opinion.
