 ABOUT THIS IMAGE ;;
"My mind alone is filled with rage for you, I am the pastor to your sheep."

This image is for the amazingly patient and amazing oddmountain . She's had to wait over a year for her COTM image, and so I stepped in to make sure it was worth the wait. Gaucho, her amazing character on Helovia, is a brutal, buff and simple stallion who is about to break records in battle and is incredibly real. He is dynamic, and a true man's man, which makes reading him an absolute delight. I asked what she wanted, and she gave me a few reference, so here you are! I am pretty damn proud of this, actually. I think the background alone was a big step for me, and I am very excited to finally be showing this off - complete! Also, the easter-egg Mara is hiding. Can you find her?

Thank you! 
But yup :) 
it's just supposed to be a stone statue. I was going for understated ancient sort of stuff
EDIT: depending on what color profile you have your monitor set to and what your gamma settings are, you may be able to see more or less of the peg. I worked on my through one of my color calibrated profiles, so this doesn't look great on mac profiles where they upped the gama. Just checked it on my laptop :/ apple.

I have an Imac on the Adobe RGB colour settings and I can see the pegasus very easy, if that sheds any light?

kaons Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ooooh hm. It looks TERRIBLE on my mac screen. But everything looks terrible on it :/ The colors are way too contrasty. I'll have to fiddle with it and try the color profile you suggested. 

Thank you!

I recently got my imac and when I looked at all the pieces I had done on my old PC I was astounded with the colours in them, like they were just so contrasty (when they had looked fine on my PC). I had it on the default Mac colour setting which I find makes things really dark and just sooooo contrasted. Adobe RGB isnt the same as the windows settings I dont think but its alot less dark so probably the closest, and that is what I use!

kaons Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
RIGHT.
I also really hate this new, shiny retina display thing. It makes it even more contrasty. Like the colors themselves are very lovely, but it's something with the gamma. It's like white isn't really "white". I'll try the other color profile or just calibrate it. My PC monitors are really nice, and I took a while to save up for them, so I know they are good. It's just frustrating.

WITCH-D0CT0R Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha yeah i know right!
I saved up 3 grand for this 5k retina display imac and the display is like.... Not that good. Hahahahahahahaha its literally a joke.
The retina display to my understanding is just like heaps more pixels then your average PC screen. So if you put your face up to it you cant see the pixels its all nice and crystal clear but obviously they need to do a bit of work on the colours.

Oh gosh >_>;;; Yeah... I mean, they are well engineered, but I just really don't lack the software mac uses to manage color. 
You should get one of these: spyder.datacolor.com/ I color calibrate my monitor monthly. It reads the wavelength of the light emitted by the screen and then creates a color profile by adjusted to what the "true" wavelength of the color should be. This saves my life when I have to take anything to the printer since I do poster/design work on the side. 

But yeah.... this is why I have two, really nice Samsung LCD monitors that are matte finish (which means no GLARE WOOO!) and have amazing colors.

I tried going through the color calibration to bring down the gamma, and then come look at this... but my screen looked so funny after going through that, that I couldn't bring myself to come look at it. D:
