:lol: No, no, I got that, don't worry. Its weird though how I automatically think its a horse nose and not a human nose...Its only 10 mins after my exams xD

Wow. That made no sense :giggle:

OMG! You do this in Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0??? Thats the program that I have!

I would SO be doing artwork like this... but everytime I try to make a picture (like when I click "start from scratch" or something) I always get the message "This Styles File is Bad or Corrupted". Then it locks up, and I can't do anything.

Yes, and everyone says we should take it off, and then install it again. But we have like over 2000 pictures on it, and we don't know how to put them into a folder so we can upload them once we install it again.

Maybe you could burn them to a CD or put them on a USB drive so after you re-install you can just stick back in and save them :)

OMGSH! I never thought about using a USB drive! I have 2 of them. One of them is a 1GB, and the other is a 2GB. ... I'll use the 2GB just to be safe. And if there are too many, I'll use the 1GB too!

Absolutely lovely! I think it looks great!! :clap: I think you might feel sort of like me ^^; I'm still on the head of my current project and I've been working on it for about two months. :faint: It is taking FOREVER. I used Elements 5.0 though... I'm not sure what I'd do with 3.0, Elements is simplistic enough in my version. :hug: It looks amazing in any event, I can't wait to see the next WIP!

Hm yeah, don't you hate it when you can only work on something a little bit at a time and it feels like you could never have enough time to just sit down and work on it?

How is 5.0? I've only ever tried 3.0

Thank you! :glomp:

YES, YES and YES. Absolutely ;) It's awful! That's how it's been for hte past two weeks. I can't stand it, one night I just stayed up super late and just HAD to do something and finish it, all these WIP's are hanging over my head.

It's pretty good, I've tried CS so I kinda spoiled it for myself. I'm not really sure, in any even 5.0 is pretty much really amazing towards MS Paint :giggle: I can imagine it would be much better than 3.0. Have you tried GIMP? It's free and it is pretty lovely in my opinion, not a whole lot of brushes but there are lots you can download =)

You're welcome :aww: :hug:

:giggle: Hahah, my mom doesn't like when I do that, and my eyes get all red ^^; annndd I fall asleep in my classes.

[link] <-- it's all free =D and it is awesome, the windows are a little weird in my opinion it takes a lot of getting used to, I can't use it since this is my school computer but I used to use it and I made some tutorials (I don't have them anymore) and such. =)

How did you get the colors so perfectly?!
Reply
:iconradiantthunder:
Radiantthunder Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2008
I made myself a color palette using colors I know are part of a real horse color and I also eyedropped some color from the photograph I'm referencing from. :nod:

And then I kill myself making it work together xD

My goodness! :faint:
You truly are an amazing person, just look at the level of detail you've done on this picture! :faint:
It looks extremely realistic so far, even though it's a WIP.
I'd absolutely love to see more pictures of the progress as it comes along, it's interesting to watch and it could also help me get a better understanding of how to draw my pictures.
Your arts so owns mine.

Boy oh boy....the final picture is going to be an ultimate masterpiece!

Actually it didn't. You said it would take a while, so was being patient about it. Besides, I've been so busy otherwise (because of work) that I didn't have time to think it all the time. Very promising wip, it amazes me how real you can make it.
