Beautiful Day

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

So, first manip in over a month. I'm actually super proud of how this came out. Even, dare I say, with the mane and tail. :3
Comments, critiques, and faves are appreciated.

This, I believe, is your best manipulation yet.

I love the song lyrics you put with this, the go wonderfully together ;D

Your mane and tail look amazing, and the flow is great. Although, the tail looks slightly odd at the dock, as if it is a little too high. Other than that, your highlights and lowlights looks great!

Your detailing and smudging is great, although there should be a slight shadow on the next from the mane <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/>

Your shadow looks good, and same with your grounding, although the hind right leg, there is a tiny bit of green still there that looks out of place. I would try to erase it, or use the clone tool to make that the same colour as the rest of the leg.

Although there are some minor things I have mentioned above, this is an amazing piece, and, as I said before, possibly your best yet. With a few touch ups, this would be nearly perfect c:
Lurve this. ♥
