Birdsong by Polar-Dream Birdsong by Polar-Dream
Okay. I think this is my best yet! O.O I did a complete colour change on my dear Moony horse, who was bay before I got hold of him. :P *snickers* As you can see... Now he isn't. :) I also changed his pose and his eye... I redrew the mane and tail by hand. Far from perfect, but definitely my best. I used at least 4 or 5 images in the background, mostly from the incredible Night-Fate-Stock. :D LOVE your stock! :hug:

I made it over a total of about 5 days, working on and off.

Well, I really don't have much else to say. o_0

Thanks a billion to the stock providers! :D

Noticed in previous comments that you used a tablet. Might I ask what kind of tablet you use? I'm looking into getting one but have no idea what kind/brand would be best.. :?

I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun I believe... It's really good - but I can't really reccommend anything, since I've only ever used one... *helpless shrug* Sorry... It has been a super tablet for me though, so if that helps at all...? :P

Haha no problem my dear :P
What did you change on the position =D (I did that the other day.. then I scrapped my work as wasn't what I was after xD) head being thrown up maybe?

Oh also, your best mane so far! =D Just needed the tail to have a few "clumping" of strands in it really =D
Reply
:iconpolar-dream:
Polar-Dream Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha! I did that when I first tried it... Just like when I first tried colour changes. ;P But hey, the more you practice the easier it is to work out what will and won't work. I changed the position of 2 legs, including the shoulder on the foreleg, and I changed the head position, then edited the neck slightly to fit it. I'll upload the stock now and post a link. :)

...
I wonder if "Good model for stock photography" will be a good selling point for Moony...? :giggle:

Thanks Dottie dear. :D I redid the tail 3 times, but no matter what I try, the true awesomeness of tails still evades my pathetic mind... One day I'll get it right. Have to hunt down some more tutorials... Haha! At least I'm improving. That's something. ;P

So very true :nod: ;P Darling Deshy as recently informed me that she wants to test my skills, I am to use 3 horse stock images minimum- shall test those I practiced... and fail epically :evillaugh:.
I saw it =D Top job Polo :clap:

Haha maybe it will be for him :P :woohoo:

I know some good tuts for them =D Should be in one of my DA favorites folders... I also have a bad one about movement/shaping... Like I sad its bad though :|

You have no idea how much I love this piece :worship:
Can't wait for next one :eager:
