Firstly, I really love that water. The reflection is spot-on and the hues go so well with the surroundings :la: The ripples on the cave wall gives it a nice, eerie feeling. The pose looks so wonderfully done- I love how the head is slightly covering the legs. The mane and tail have some really nice styling going on, and some really nice highlights ;) I also really like the featherings and how they droop casually on the back legs :)

Thank you!!! :lol: Loved the water, and I do enjoy reflections :D Thank you! Eerie is a compliment on this one :D I had fun with dat pose! Yeah, it was kind of a new feathering style for me - glad it came out alright! :la:

How did you get such a background?!?!? :wow:
Scutterland's avatar
LOL Thank you!!!

Ahaha, well, I play with the burn and dodge tools a lot :D I am constantly expiramenting :D Photoshop helped with the water, but I felt like such a boss when I did it because the tools I used had nothing to do with water :D And I believe that I am blessed!

Ahaha, or were you wanting more of a tutorial?
WinterVodka-Stables's avatar
No problem!!!! :D

Wow looks like playing around pays off :stare: not in a dirty way or anything..

And no haha I was just curious :XD:
Scutterland's avatar
Ahaha, yes, I love it when I expirament with different tools and brushes and just kind of see what happens(with photoshop of course) LOL

:squee: Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it's good for you and I! :D

Gorgeous! I love the water, and the shading on the horse is perfecto! Great job!
Scutterland's avatar
:la: Thankies!!! I had so much fun with this :D PSD helped with the water but I felt like a boss when I made it because the tools I used had nothing to do with water LOL XD

It was the most ingenious time-saving "cheating" (as some artists might have called it) I had ever done! :lol:

I love those moments where you find things that make your art better, and it wasn't even intended! And you're welcome. :D
Scutterland's avatar
:squee: I KNOW, RIGHT!? Ahh, I love those moments too :D

Scutterland's avatar
Thank you!!!! EPIC HAIR FLIP XD thank you so much, PSD helped with the water but I felt so clever when I made it because the tools I used were never intended for water XD :iconfeellikeasirplz:
