The broken locks were a warning, you got inside my head.
I tried my best to be guarded, I'm an open book instead.

---------------------------------------

Information

My half of my art trade with the wonderful, talented i-mi. This is her baby Fiore, sassy little guy. I hope you like it lovely lady. 

I want to apologize to everyone for not uploading very much lately. I have gone through what might have been the toughest month for me in a really long time, and I'm in a terrible place right now. I'm just not myself and that means I'm not interested in doing certain things, such as manipping. I'm surprised that I got this done at all, considering. Feels good though. 

Anyways.

See other artwork of Fiore:

(sorry I'm not a premi so I don't get to use fancy thumbnails. xD)

:love: This is phenomenal, you did such an amazing job with the flow between the horse and background. And, that's probably the most realistic mane/tail I've seen yet! Awesome job!

"artwork of fiore" reminds me of Ella Enchanted uvu

i love this, do you use a tablet/photoshop? and I'm just wondering... when did you first start digital art and how long did it take for you to finally get the grasp of everything ? i'm just wondering because i'm new to all of this, and i'm going to try and improve my drawings on paper before trying out a tablet ;;

Thank you very much!

I neither use a tablet or photoshop. All I have as tools is my laptop and of course the mouse trackpad that comes with it. As for programs, I use GIMP 2.6. I started using GIMP maybe about 5 years ago, just because at the time it was the only program I could find online that was free lol. Now it's just stuck with me because it's what I know how to use. xD

..oh.

i use GIMP 2.8 but like.. i feel like i can't/won't be able to do photomanips like this. i unno, i've just always felt like it holds me back no matter if i smudge things or try to paint whatever..

I understand why you feel that way because I felt the same once but... You shouldn't. Having a program like photoshop isn't going to magically make your art better. It's honestly just a matter of learning to use the tools at your disposal and practicing. (:

Oh, all right... I'll start today by trying to at least do some sketches in GIMP, before I try all the smudging and everything so..

Oh, and if you want to talk more, I've moved to "Ahhhrora". (I decided to base my new permanent account off of my OOC character... if that makes sense?)

I generally try to avoid smudging. Painting hair over smudging gives you way more detail. In addition, smudging the body can be a good way to even out a coat but more often than not I find people don't do it effectively. If I DO smudge, I always duplicate the layer, and smudge ONLY on an opacity of 5-10% and then adjust the opacity of the layer itself afterwards to make it blend/not look fake. (:

And sure! If you ever want to chat more feel free to note me.
