Irreparable Loss by Mondpferd Irreparable Loss by Mondpferd
woohoo...I'm so creative at the moment :boogie: I could draw thousands of pictures (if I had the time) :giggle: ..my art block seems to be overcome :aww:

There is no special story behind this image....I just doodled around in Photoshop when this came to my mind. I especially wanted to play a bit with the light because I think it doesn't look good if black horses are only black and white. So I added the soft sunlight and some blue highlights.

Oh, this is so sad! But this is a fantastic piece! I love the touches of color throughout, and the soft glow of the sunlight really set the scene! Fantastic job, my only critique is that the scull looks a little too perfect and scrubbed.

An emotional piece. Relates to the feeling of loss/grief quite well.

echt unglaublich!
Das wirkt alles so echt - jeder einzelne Muskel ist definiert und das Pferd wirkt echt realistisch! Wenn es so eines in echt geben würd, dann würd ich wahrscheinlich in die Knie gehen! ^^ das ist der Stoff, aus dem Träume gemacht sind - weiter so

Thank you very much! :huggle: But I have to admit that I find it easier to draw horses in the side view than in the 3/4 view for example. My horses in the 3/4 view sucks :giggle:
