the crucified..

:bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletwhite: :bulletyellow: Behind This Image;;

So some of you may remember this piece, some of you may not, either way I am resubmitting it as I love it too much for it to sit around on my desktop growing stagnant mold! I don't remember what was written in the description before so I have no hope of writing up anything like what I had in mind for it when it was first created.

I just hope that no offence is held. I am Christian. <3

**Also, just to clarify, so I don't have to take it down again, there is NO blood on the horse.... it is only on the wings! Use your eyes before you use your mouth to bitch at me when you can clearly see (in the upclose details) that the horse has NO blood on it!

Upclose details:

PLEASE;; NO CRITIQUES OR NIT-PICKING WANTED! Nit-Pick or Crit and your comment will be hidden! Don't bitch or complain to me because you didn't read!

:bulletwhite: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletyellow: I M P O R T A N T :bulletyellow: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletwhite:
So that you can view my artwork the way that I created it in its full colour and shades, please check your monitors settings; and that you can see all the gradients of colours on this test >> [link] - thank you

I ... I can't stop starring at this.
You really nailed the mood. It's shocking. It's beautiful. It's strange.

So many questions swarm to my head when I look at this but it feels very inspirational.

Great work!

its beautiful! wow. i love it :heart:
rkmohr Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2011
This is stunning. Perhaps the most creative piece I've seen. I'm a Christian, so this is pretty symbolic for me. But a pegasus symbolizes a lot of different characteristics to me. :)
Wonderful job!

I don't think there's much I can say about this. o.o As soon as you notice the horse, you get hid pretty darn hard with some kind of strong emotion- knocks the wind right out of you.

This is breath taking! Oh my lanta, you have talent!!
Tocama Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Beautiful! Also as read that it was removed because of what people said, don't listen, because your art s to great. Everyone has nit-pickers and crap, but those are either people who are jealous because they can't do that, or they just think their above all <3
So beautiful. :love:

God, people. It's not bitching if you haven't read the stock provider's rules in the first place, and then get pissed when you have to remove it because of that.

Now that the blood isn't on the horse, it's fine. But if you have a problem with a stock provider's rules just don't use their stock!, jeesh, people, stop complaining!

Lovely piece, by the way, very creative, you're an amazing manipulator.
rajaraviteja Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011
creative work, even though scary,i loved it
Almalphia Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011
Very strong moving piece! WOW!!!!
LanyLan Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I'm so glad to see this again! This is probably the best I have ever seen when it comes to photomanips! I love it so much that I can't find the right words to say! :giggle: I don't think you should've removed it in the first place because this is pretty powerful when you look at it. There's clearly blood on the wings, not the horse and the fact that you created a close up version and they still think that the horse is bleeding...that's just sad.
Lykketrollet84 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Amazing! What a powerful image! This must be the best digital work I have seen. I am a sucker for traditional work, but this piece took my breath away instantly. I can`t take my eyes of it!
darbysocks Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I admire your work so much. It's very inspiring and the detail of each and every image that you post is impeccable. I really enjoy every image you post silently. I barely ever comment on images except for those I feel strongly for. I just want you to know that you should have never removed the image in the first place. This piece is gorgeous, and the blood is clearly on the wings. Ignore those bitches that complain. They're just jealous. <3

I think this is just incredible, by far my favourite piece from you
SweetButtermilk Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's nice! I don't know why people would be offended. I mean, crucifixion wasn't established specifically for Jesus or anything. :P
People complained about blood on the horse? What a silly thing to gripe about!
xToushirou-Kurosakix Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011  Student Writer
That is honestly amazing; moving and somewhat creepy at the same time; beautiful.
Sooty-Bunnie Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Well I always thought this was a very moving peice and didnt know you had taken it down but I am glad you put it back up. Look at some of the stuff people put up and pass as art that does not get complained about and something that is real art and has a great deal of meaning to so many who look at it weather it be beautful or schocking is the sort that gets complained about then again isnt all great art a contraversy at some point?
Bamy564 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011
Wow. I really wish I could describe how utterly stunning this is but I'm at a loss for words.

As I said before when I saw this, STUNNING! It's just so gorgeously symbolic! :heart:
snofoxx89 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm soooo glad you re-submitted this! It's one of the most moving pieces (in my opinion) in your entire gallery. It's phenomenal! :heart:
Tolandiel-Roquen Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
I agree this piece is absolutely stunning! So creative and definately a perfect addition to your gallery.

Frostie-Spirits Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Ignore whiny people. This is to amazing to sit your your desktop without being shared. If they can't deal with blood then they shouldn't look at it. :facepalm:
