***triple edit :dummy: I keep fixing things. this time added more light, and worked on grounding and some more hair issues... and to anyone who's reading this, please go give luminaret a huge hug for putting up with me and guiding me through all this mess! I certainly chose a *challenging* stock combo >.>  

***double edit. i'm not giving up on this one LOL. I fixed more light, and added some flyaways, and paint some more, and worked on grounding, and a lot more : D this is actually fun doing because i'm learning so much. like how to do things when your pen pressure decides not to work suddenly. let's not go there now okay? haha 

***edit, fixed the light, added more shadows to the horn, and re-sized the horse. I'm open to feedback, only if you explain HOW I could fix it. :heart:

this was one of those manips where something kept bugging you, and you kept adding things. but overall, i'm fairly happy with it c': the most challenging parts where the light and tail. I completely switched the light around on the horse x.x go realism but, I enjoyed doing the eyes, and painting the horn (my 2nd) as well as the forelock and body repainting

    How did you do the horn?
Reply
:iconosowyn:
osowyn Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
first, I paint the base. 2nd, I take the eraser, and do my outline. you need curls in the horn. 3rd, I take a darker cream base and add in my shadows. these go where the horn would curl, you want dimension. 4th, take a lighter cream and add in highlights. 5th, add in tiny details so you have sharpness. 6th, now put in your real light from sun ect. 7th, make a shadow on the face of the horse if needed. 

so that's a basic outline of what i do. if you'd like more info, i may make a tut or JM on that :] 

hope i could help! :heart:

This is so beautiful!
Just one little thing - the horse looks a bit big for the background. I saw you wanted critique and that's all I see that could be improved.

SUCH PRETTYNESS ;u;
