Horse Manipulation - Black and White

Click To See

So, there wasn't any inspiration for this at all. The only reason I did it was to see how well I could cut and do graphics with just a laptop finger pad.

Feel free to critique or comment.


Time Taken : One Hour

Listened To : Miley Cyrus, Phantom of the Opera

Would you like a critique? I'd be happy to give you one but I'd hate to overstep.

Cutting - Good, a bit bumpy in some places and a bit hazy in others but overall nothing to complain about

Mane/Tail smudging - You need more indevidual strands in there

Light/Shadows - This is the biggest thing. If you look where the light is coming from (The moon) You can trace where the lights/shadows on the horse should be. The side of the horse we see should be in shadow, unless there's another light sorce we can't see. Without shadows it seems to look like the horse is glowing

I know you didn't have an inspiration for your manip, so I won't comment on that
Overall I think it's very pretty. Not many people can pull off a black and white manip. Well Done :)

saint - lol. I did the cutting on a laptop finger scrolly thingy. No critique needed on that.

As for the mane and tail, like I said, I did this with just a laptop. My effort into this one was slim to none. I just did it because I was bored.

And yes. I know my lighting sucks. :) Likewise, I just got bored.

But thanks.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Good job!

Horses are God's apology for men.
