Dance with The Devil

EDIT: Blood removed upon request

At first I didn't like the way it came out, but when I added some details and finished it, I liked it far better. And it didn't make much sense that this horse was the devil, so I added the pentagram as a little hint. Though i'm starting to rethink that, since the pentagram has different meanings. Any other symbol suggestions I could use?

And as a side note, three stock photos were required for the horse, all by Venom and all the same stallion. Originally I wanted the horse's mouth to be hanging open, like a devilish sort of thing, but for some reason dA was erroring, and I couldn't find the right fit. So I resorted to downloading those stock photos and combining pieces of them. The horse's head and body are from the same photo, just cut in half and angled differently. The forelegs are from different photos.

Approximately 29 layers, took 3-4 hours

i appreciate you choosing to use my stock, but there is a major problem. my stock rules all over clearly say that i don't allow my stock to be used in violent/bloody work. wish you had read my rules before using. so you will have to either remove this image, or change it so there is no blood on the horse. let me know what you decide i will check back on this, thanks

Whoops, sorry. I wasn't sure what degree was allowed, but I should have asked and read them more thoroughly. I'll remove the blood

Thanks for choosing my stock, this really is a pretty good piece and different from a lot that I've seen. I have a suggestion for the symbol, if you like that is. Stick with the pentagram, but remove the outer circle and flip it vertically and maybe try a burn-mode blend and it would also look much more like a part of the horse.

Thanks, I'll try that

You're welcome, I'm pretty sure it symbolizes Satan, you could probably find out for sure on google.

I'm sure it does as well, but it could also be a Wiccan symbol, so I didn't want to offend anyone
