Valiente.-


"...There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and fills it with noble inclinations."

...
An advanced commission for ~Reticant-Nemesis.

Artist's Comments-
I swear, grullo is quite a hard color to get right...and that lighting killed me. I still think that I got neither right. Lol...xD

Funny, I only had two layers for the actual mane and tail and bunches for the highlights and shadows, and it turned out alright. Less work, ok effect = YUS.

Hi, I am sorry to have to inform you of this but I believe someone stole this beautiful manip... You see I play on a sim game called AVH and I had someone make me a profile picture. It cost virtual money and it was this exact picture... I, of course, have already taken the photo down but I just wanted to make sure that wasn't you before reporting the person...

I painted them in white, selected the painted layer, then switched to the horse layer and brightened/desaturated.

So nice done - I really cant say anything right now.
It's so soft made and the lighting is really good! Don't worry about that!
I really wish I chould do photomanipulations as good as you!

Anyway...
I actually just saw that we have the same kind of bamboo tablet!
So cool - haha! :dummy:

I have only made manipulations and drawn digital - hmm... in around a year I think.

Agree. Grullo's are a pain to get right. I'm doing a Grullo tobiano and I still haven't gotten it right (I had to make my character a grullo tobiano...). :c
Very beautiful manip though.

I know, they just have this strange color that's so hard to match, and there aren't many stock pictures of grullos out there.
Aha, thank you...:heart:
