Suggester says: "If you remove the horse from the scene, the background blending alone is beyond words. It's entirely believable, and I feel like it's an actual place! Adding in the horse, every single detail is sharp, eye-catching, and perfect."

I use a variety of different brushes, but the for the majority of my detailing I use the default round brush. It's really just lots of hours of work, haha.

it was a game on the original Xbox and ps2, it was a mix between turn-based strategy board game and fighter, essentially the story was that 4 different gods, god of fire, water, earth and wind, were competing to be god of the universe, and they were in war for the title, the different pieces were like different monsters, usually they were all just identical versions of the other team just a different attribute, when two monster pieces got on the same tile, they would enter a ringed fight, mortal combat style, the winner would take the tile and the loser would lose a monster piece, the winner was the one who either took the king piece (the gods themselves were the king monster pieces, they were also the strongest) and beat it in battle or you would have the most tiles.
one of the monsters was a unicorn, the wind piece looked a lot like yours, wind was evil, so was earth, fire and water were the good guys (more or less, they just gave off the good vibe because they were lighter colours like bright orange and blue and they had stuff like unicorns and giants while earth and wind were dark green and purple and had nightmares and cyclopses)
i apologise if this was a mouthful, it was a really good game, i wish my Xbox emulated old games like that, and crash tag team racing, those were the glory days...

Lovely job on the photomanipulation! Just a couple pointers: Be wary of shadows for the feet, right now it looks like the right hind hoof is further left than the left hind hoof. Also, I don't know if you were going for a fish eye lens sort of effect, but if that is not the case, the horizon should be completely flat. Also, the borders of the distance mountains are a bit too fuzzy. I know they are out of focus, but their outline should still be rather crisp unless they are obscured by fog or clouds.

Thank you for the tips! With the shadow, I was intending to do so; there are
dressage moves that horses do where their legs cross sideways, and they move
diagonally while still facing forward, and that's what I was attempting to show -
though looking back on it, I should have probably placed that shadow further
away so it didn't appear as drastically, since the front leg doesn't appear to reach
as far. I also intended the fish eye effect, but again not sure how well I pulled it 
off, haha. Thank you for the tip on the mountains, though; you're certainly on
point with that one.
