ABOUT THIS PIECE

This was just a piece for myself. I wanted to get rid of my art block and hatred of my manes and tails, while practicing a bit. I honestly think that I've found my style for manes and tails, for this moment, at least. I know that I should have filled in the tail some more, and used a smaller brush, but I started it, and I just couldn't switch brush sizes while I was half-way through. I really tried to get the lighting right, but it's still so unrealistic. And yup...no signiture this time. Just watermarks.

BEHIND THIS PIECE
- Photoshop CS5
- 44 Layers
- Bamboo Fun Tablet
- About 3 hours


STOCK
Thank you, stock providers, for the stunning stock.

Everything else was hand-painted by myself, *star-fishy

Looks nice! The mane and tail looks gorgeous too. I personally think it looks realistic and that you've really done a good job with this. The background stock is so pretty, too!
