Whimsical Moments

MAN! I thought I was NEVER going to get this one done. LOL. My PC must have blue screened me over a dozen times while doing it. At least a dozen times.

I don't have much time to type and babble on about it, but I'd like to give a big shout of thanks to ~ZeTravellingBeaver for letting me use her beach photo in this. She gave me inspiration, and I titled it after one of the words I hear most from her: Whimsical.

The horse was frustrating, but fun. *Olympic-Ferro provided great base stock (as she always does), and from there I altered a little. ~boxofpeaches is whom this pic is intended for, and her char was a red dun, barred legs, two front stockings, and preferred to have a wind-whipped mane and tail. I did the best i could. The barred legs and two front socks were painted on, as well as a back sock that was covered up. Mane and tail painted in too, obviously, but I'm not very pleased with how they came out.

Then again, I'm not very pleased with the entirety of this image, but it was coming down to the point where I needed to be done with it before I completely burned myself out.

Time put in: A ton. Most of it was redoing what I had lost when my PC blue screened. Over 40 hours - pathetic, huh?

I hope you like it, ~boxofpeaches and ~ZeTravellingBeaver!! :heart: :love:

How do you make your images all smooth-like? It looks so good, maybe you should make a tutorial on that next...(hint hint nudge nudge wink wink). Anyway, it looks fantastic, definitely one of your best images.
Awesome, gorgeous, wow, I love your horses you really now how to make them look so real.
