I do like this image, so ill leave you some critique {:

I gave the vision a 3.5 because of the way that the horse just seems to stand out from the background. I would have tinted the horse blue so it doesnt look too much like its just placed there. Granted, it does blend, but the colors i would make match more. I know its lighter on that part, but a small layer over the horse on softlight with some transparency of a blue color you can take from the background could make the horse blend in some more.

Originality i gave you a 4.5. I havent really seen an image like this, but it does seem like some other images that have been floating around dA way back when. All together the originality is nice.

For Technique i gave a 3.5 since like i said, you could add the blue tone to the horse so it seems more like a part of the image. Also, if youd like to see the eye that you created a bit better, you could dodge it and make the eye a part of some wonder in this image. The hooves fit well with the way you cut them but id also add a small amount of splashes or something so it doesnt stick out too much. For the light of the horse, you can look to see where the light is coming from, in this case the planets up top. I would smudge or blur the shadows that are very noticable under the front legs of the horse a bit more so it doesnt seem so sharp like the suns hitting it.

Impact i gave a 4. Its a lovely image, and it does touch home a bit, for some personal reasons P: So yea, a four for this is lovely.

Im not too sure if i made this clear, but i know how the title says light in the midst of darkness, and i have the feeling that you probably made the horse that bright so it could be the light. But if you put a small blue layer over it, as i had said before, then it would still be the light. You could probably even add a glow around the horse as if the horse was its own light.

I hope this was helpful for you luff!

I like the way the horse stands out in from the background, because of its color. There seems to be a circle of light around it, which is nice, but I think in addition to this circle of light that maybe you could have added a glow around the horse, this not only would help the horse to stand out and show the lighting, but it would also help to soften up the edges and make them appear less choppy in some areas. Something that I don't like, is the way that the hooves it is standing on just sort of are chopped off, and don't really slowly disappear or fade into the water like it is actually standing there.

Beautiful work

I think this manip is beautiful, the horse fits with the backround well and the overall theme is great.

A few little things would be
1. the horses feet seem to just dissapear in the water
2. The light around the horse seems to come from nowhere. The moon maybe?
3. The mane and tail flow could be better

Overall, beautiful piece :heart:

Thank you very much! I will keep these tips in mind on future manips!
And the light comes partly from the moon/planet, that is why it is brighter when it is closer to the horses, and the other part is self generated, because the horse is "a light in the midst of darkness." :D

No problem. I can see how the light comes from the moon, it just is a bit fuzzy at first :)

Oh wow, this looks great. You never fail to amazing me. :D The only critique I have (and it's so short I doubt this would even fit in the critques section) is that the horse seems a bit bright and white for the image. Hopefully that makes sense. The eye and the mane/tail are my favourite parts. Keep up the great work. :heart:

Hello, and thank you for notifying us of your stock-usage! :)

However in regards to the print that you currently have up, do you know which Resurgere contributor(s) produced the stock you used, and have you asked their permission to print it? We explain in our Terms of Use and F.A.Q. and we will remind you now, that no one is allowed to sell their work if it contains Resurgere resources, unless they have prior permission to do so from the Producer(s) of the resources they have used in their work.

We hope you did not forget to ask permission and we would like some clarification, so we'll know that this print is legitimate and will not have to take action. Please reply to us asap, thank you! ... If you don't have permission you should disable the print right away, until you've spoken to the artist(s) who contributed the resources to Resurgere and had them to approve your print.

Thank you for your attention!

Hello and thank you for the note!

As outlined in our Terms of Use, only the Producer of any specific stock image can authorize it's use in your commercial work.

As such Resurgere can not give out permission itself. If you want permission you must ask Resurgere's members and contributors for their permission directly. And of course if you use stock images from more then one Producer, you will need to obtain permission from all Producers involved before your work is made available for commercial purchasing.

Our Terms of Use briefly mention the procedure for finding who the Producer of any Resurgere stock image is, and how to contact them. Should you need any help or direction outside of what is provided in the ToU please feel free to ask :heart:

Seeing as you used the cosmos stock, their original creator is =Funerium. Again, we would appreciate if you would disable the print right away, until you've spoken to=Funerium and have received his approval of your print.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Thank you for being so understanding, and for showing this great artist which I'm now a watcher of, but, um, I'm having a sorta big problem.

I do not want any label tagged on me, so instead of contacting the artist you linked me too, I was going to disable the print, however, on the edit the deviation page, I found nothing of the sort. Any help?
