1. That horse. Is way. Too. Smudged... Mother of what. I would suggest you would lower the opacity of that smudging layer :XD: In fact, don't smudge at all. =P It tends to take away detail (look at #3)
2. there is no drama, no "epicness". I would suggest you create a light source or gaussian blur inverted of the horse (the bg, but not the horse).
3. I think you should do darker details more everywhere. The smudgeing sort of took away that precious detail. So, instead of smudgeing, de-noise it :)
4. The mane and tail look kinda fake to me. I think you smudged them :meow: don't smudge the mane/tail unless it looks natural :iconevilgrilplz:
5. maybe make the font smaller, then white, then "overlay" and move it up into the corner.
6. Also, I would suggest you use this tutorial to help you out with the manes/tails. It was designed to be used with a mouse as well as a track pad or tablet.
7. I think that you smudged the sand too under the horse, yeah... It looks "fake" as in like, not real. I wouldn't suggest you smudge the background :XD:
8.The sand looks really good (where the hoofs go), but I would suggest some more detail in it, like not smudge it as much or something :)

Really nice job! I love the overall feel, like a happy kind ;)

Hey;3 I actually think this is great work! They go well together, and the lighting is okay:3
I found that the horses legs seem to be quite a bit shorter compared to the body, but it may be the angle they're at. Also the body is really smudged.. Maybe put the settings on 1 pixal and 20% smudge, see how that works out, as the facial details are really not there:3
I love the tail, and the eye though;3 beautiful ^_^

thankyou!! of course :)

Oh yes and can I give my opinion?
It's too smudged (like me! :D)
And his legs are a little bit short, isn't it?
i think you placed him not good in the background...
His mane and tale are a little bit too simple... (just smudged?)
