First Try and Fantasy Editing


I used stock images from the following:
Background:
Deviant Art by Liburnica

Horse by:
Deviant Art by LRP Photography

I use my own sky and then read a few tutorials for doing this kind of art.
Fantasy Tutorials

My job was a bit more difficult without Photoshop 7, I used Elements 5, but was able to come up with some work arounds to the layers that I don't have access to in Elements.

Now I AM thinking that doing something like this with a mule or donkey would be fun. I learned how to alternate lighting in PS and more uses for brushes which I've never investigated before.

I was really tempted to put some Angel wings on this horse and make him into a magical Pegasus.

So I think you can guess what happens when I get cabin fever and don't feel like going outside. I can get lost for a long time in my little world of creativity and editing.
I feel like a kid with the coolest coloring book in the world.

Always looking to learn!

Is this the mules' pin up?

I've no idea what photoshop 7, element 5 or PS are, but it's a beautiful image of a beautiful horse.
