Blue horse


Done a while back, not many people like this piece, but somehow I do...it just feels fantasy...well, anyways, this is another old piece

As you can see my blending skills weren't so good, this horse was originally painted brown, but after a lot of fiddling this was the final result.

This is really nice work, reading the other reviews I fell that you are being beaten into a pulp, I trully thing youve done a wonderful job here, you have chosen pale mystical colours that help blend the whole picture into one piece. The way the tail wraps around the moon is great too, it has a Rodney matthews look about it.

The only pointer is that the back right foot of the horse looks as though it should have angled towards the floor a bit more. it just looks as though your horse is running on a flat surface, yet it is on a hill. one tweak and it would be a spot on wall piece.

Thanks! Yeah, I can se other mistakes but this piece is really old so I won't be fixing it. Thanks for the crit though, I think you are right.


I was listening to Joe Satriani's 'If i could fly', the picture began to move.

this ain't my kind of style

but i have to admit that the horse is just wonderful, the lights and the shades are extremely realistic. also the land is good, to me the only thing that ruins this piece is the sky: the moon isn't as good as the rest (maybe it shouldn't have been so dark) and i think it's way to large. i understand you wanted to give a fantasy atmosphere to your piece, but in this composition i would have preferred a small moon in the corner, watching the horse from a long distance, it would have given a sense of depth, wich your piece lacks. anyway the horse is so good that i almost suspect it's traced; i hope not.

emiliapaw5 responds:

Thanks, I had a horse book for reference, I don't trace. My composition is off, but I think the moon might be a personal preference.
