Arabian Sun by NikalaTheUnicorn Arabian Sun by NikalaTheUnicorn
This horse took forever to munipulate. I had to copy and paint over all the colors.
Then the worse part was, I had to resize it multiple times and it got pixelly.
:iconangryplz:

So ya.
My first REAL photo Manip.
It took me forever to find the right Manip program.
But I did.
Yay!

This piece is beautifully done, and so very devious! I mean like very very very devious.
I really get the impact of the wavy, blurry heat from the sun, especially from far away. It is a bit blurry but I think that maybe just maybe, you did it like that on purpose. It gives the artwork more feel.
I really like the way you did the shading as it is ever so realistic and very effective to this particular piece of work. I would love to see more work like this from you! Keep up the good work, NikalaTheUnicorn! :)
Bye!

I'm curious, why'd you need to resize it multiple times?

Because.
The manipulating program shrunk it to the tiniest pixels.
Then I had to smooth it out with photoshop elements.
Then I opened it in a cool app that makes the picture bigger.
Then I smoothed it out again.
Then finally. Phew.
It was done.
