So this is my last commission before my 6 weeks of abscense! Yes that sucks (or at least for me *cries* going to miss you guys!) And I'm pretty happy with this piece. Hope you like it too ~8rhyme-and-reason8! I'm not sure when my commissions will be open again since it's probably going to be a busy year next year, but we'll see!
You have so much skill, that I can't even be jealous. Instead, I find myself inspired, and glancing at the man's tablet over there and wanting to start trying more manips, and bettering my skills.
The wings are beautiful, and their size looks perfect in comparison with the horse's body; They look like they will be able to carry the 800 - 1200 and up weight of a horse. The dust around the horse from the wings really helps to say that the horse has just landed, or maybe is a bout to take flight. The fact that they meld gracefully into the horse helps even more ^^
The mane and tail are both glorious, shiny and full of life, with lovely flyaways that help in adding the spark of realism to the piece. I love the horns, the dust, the wings, I love every little bit of this piece of masterwork.
This gorgeous work of art has stuck with me since I saw it ages ago, and I always smile when I think of it. ^.^
Well, if you mean the shape of the sand around the wings: I used the round leaf brush that was already included with a normal photoshop. You should be able to find it. And then just play around a bit wit it and blur parts that are too leaflike.
