Thanks so much guys!
RedTree- I don't really they're BAD...they could just improve a LOT xD and you only get better when you pinpoint your mistakes so....whala
thanks though! Its a bit tricky to manip, that's for sure! You have to think of a lot of things at once.
SpiritedLittleCopperSpots- glad you agree =] I'd never done anything with fog before, much less created my own- but it just really seemed like a sort of eery feel was needed for this picture. I think it turned out fairly ^_^ I'm currently using GIMP.
Iseul- thank you SO much for the critiquing ^_^ much appretiated. That last one (the first one I did) is pretty scary, huh? Haha. Totally unblended, fuzzy, too much contrasting...you name it- that's wrong with it. Lol! As for the quotes- I totally agree. I really didnt like the way it looked at the end...very cluttery and unorganized. I may try to redo it sometime, but most likely not. Haha. Time to move on! And the horse in the mist...well, theres a lot to be done with that one too. I was definitely trying to make it look as if the horse belonged to the picture (unlike the past two) but it still just isnt perfect, is it? Lol. Do you know how to darken him up without bringing out the greenish tint to his coat? I tried darkening him (he was even lighter before I put him in) but parts of his body started getting this really nasty green color so I just left him like that. And shading... I have a 'darkening' tool...is that what I would use? How do I keep it from looking sketchy? If I use the blending tool it smushes up his dapples xD throwing a lot at you here, sorry! Haha.
Once again thanks guys for taking the time to look at these and comment =] it means a lot!
