I'm quite proud of some of the details - especially my drawn eye.

Pay no attention to my measly attempt at drawing hoof prints.

Edit: After a critique by the talented :iconxglassraindrops: , I 1) reduced the shading on the image, 2) added yellows and golds to the sand to make it warmer, 3) added more highlights to the mane, and 4) completely reworked the tail. I'm not happy with the tail color, but after a few hours of working on it, I'm moving on. Hopefully despite that, my efforts resulted in a better piece.

Silly me, I forgot to favorite the sky. If anyone happens to know it, let me know so I can give them credit. Thanks!

This is beautiful! The muscle is definition is lovely, as are the colors! I think the hooves are buried a little too deeply into the sand, but this is a wonderful piece nonetheless. :love:

There are a lot of issues with it that I see now that I've gotten more experienced. But hey, it was only my second manip, so I'm okay with them. :]

looks great! the tail and mane are much improved, good job with getting the shiny element into them. the tail is a bit orange, but that's no biggy! it looks lovely, and the background blends much better.

Thank you! I worked for ages on the color of that tail... I knew it was too orange but I got to the point where my eyes wouldn't take it any more. I'm definitely still planning on messing with the color, and I've already started working on sharpening it.

Thank you! The sock was originally sand, but instead of painting it out I cheated and made it a sock, haha.
