hurrah! First time ever I lost about 2 hours of work, so I submitted this knowing I would be over my limit and knowing I still have things I want to finish. One being the over blurred background. I started to make the background similar to the reference picture, but decided it took away from the horse's head.

>.< Hope you like it D.W. muah
davincipoppalag (Apr 28, 2004)
Whoa! Icats that material in the outfit is so well done! The horse is spot on too. This is wonderful... even undone! Stunning piece
thug (Apr 28, 2004)
holy farking $#!t, this is your best ever. VERY impressive, especially the cloth and horse. Well, it's all good.
Xodiak (Apr 28, 2004)
Very bright drawing, the horse looks perfect! It looks so alive... >:D
emmamommalag (Apr 28, 2004)
That blurred background is good, Icats.. the horse and rider stand out against it, giving the impression of speed. This is a fantastic picture. So three dimensional looking and that horse is excellent. I love this!
Hedwiga (Apr 28, 2004)
Beautiful! Hope you can finish soon. :)
gloworm043 (Apr 28, 2004)
There are pictures that just kind of make you stare at them in awe....this is one of them! What a wonderful talent you have Icats...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Apr 28, 2004)
I saw in view 5 your comment where you said you were surprising yourself, and it made me smile to myself. Don't you love it when that happens? It's happened on a couple of my pics I was really happy with, that point where you look at it and think... Did I really do that... or is this applet thing magic? Then you realize it's you... because all the pictures you do don't have that effect. :)
Fin_beast (Apr 28, 2004)
Marvelous. Those ripples in that sheet are awsome.
The horse looks so sharp and as Xod put it, "alive".
marcello (Apr 28, 2004)
dba: are you saying you don't believe in applet magic!? blasphemy!
method3 (Apr 28, 2004)
More movie stuff... =P And by "upcoming film 'Hero'" you mean being released in the US. I've already seen it in Mandarin when it came out and it is one of the best Jet Li films I've seen.

It's coming along very well so far.
staci (Apr 28, 2004)
Jes, that is what I meant..honestly never heard of it until a friend watched it recently, now I am excited about its release here. Not for the action but from what I've seen and heard about the photography.
Reprah (Apr 28, 2004)
actually, its better than the original photograph. much more detail, especially in the fabric. and the horse is so real, the muscles, the mane, the nose. just excellent. beautiful Staci... ~bows to the Mistress~
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Apr 28, 2004)
Well, Marcello, actually there is something magic about it....(although it does have to have an operator) just too bad I can't get it to cast a spell on all the pictures I do... it only happens sometimes. :) I just kinda knew what she meant by "surprising herself" :)
Aubrey (Apr 28, 2004)
It's nice to see someone.. who does such great pictures all the time.. still surprised when it comes out so nicely. Shouldn't doubt your talent m'lady, your work is always a pleasure to see.
Konaru (Apr 28, 2004)
WOW this is nice, i really like the horse, except could of put a tad bit more detailing in the face, besides that its a realllllllllly great drawing
RavioloiTheDancingClown (Apr 28, 2004)

just kidding
nice work- if only i could draw/paint this well....
Pantera (Apr 28, 2004)
Very very nice work, I am amazed by almost everyone that draws here, I want to go hide all of my drawings now :) Great job Icats .
xwindflyer (Apr 29, 2004)
This is just amazing, you really are very talanted. (if you want to get rid of that blurred look in the background, you would have to change the depth of field onthe camera). ( I know it's a sick joke, don't hit me).lol
Kasha (Apr 29, 2004)
wow, the picture is awesome but I keep looking at the clothing. good job
Soshell (Apr 29, 2004)

I keep starring at this and looking at every crease in the material along with the muscle on the horse throat. What insight you have. Beautifully done.

Aubrey (May 1, 2004)
This keeps getting better and better. I kinda liked it with the background, but it'll be interesting to see what you make of it :)
Gigandas (May 1, 2004)
The horse's face is realistic and cool XD.The ripple detail is very well done too.I'd say, "keep going" :).
Justin_Sane (edited May 1, 2004)

Gigge (Jun 10, 2004)
This is fantastic!! The billow of the fabric is so real I can feel the breeze. And, I can almost count the strands of hair in the horse's mane. The piece shows off your talents so well. Sensational work, Icats.
LovelyLori (Aug 16, 2004)
this continues to blow my doors off... again.... and again...
Axil62 (Aug 16, 2004)
Blows my mind too.
Mipunai (Aug 17, 2004)

sincity (Dec 16, 2004)
Just strolling along in the showcased stuff and came across THIS! Wow this is fantastic! I love everything about this. Fan-friggin-tastic! I'm floored. :} (Dec 16, 2004)
This is absolutely without a doubt incredibly outstanding! the whole picture, detail, scenery, clothing, and the horse... i must give u much credit on the horse..... horses are the hardest animals to draw and you did and excellent job. Without a doubt a showcase piece. Tres bien!
mukumuku (Dec 26, 2004)

You catched the essence of cloth very well!
xiau (Oct 24, 2005)
I never commented this?! I've passed by it millions of times. I was almost sure I did!
This is undoubtedly one of the best pictures I've seen on here so far. Everything is amazing, her expression, the horse, and the CLOTH... The cloth amazes me to no end! I can't stop staring!
Fantastic job.
