You're my sweetheart by mockingale You're my sweetheart by mockingale
    I've been trying to do it right
    I've been living a lonely life
    I've been sleeping here instead
    I've been sleeping in my bed

    I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME, YOU'RE MY SWEETHEART



*trappedpigeon's Aphrodite, [link] !
Phew ... this was the most fun I've had manipulating in a while. Everything worked smoothly except for the stock. I really hope you enjoy it, I put a lot of effort into it! :tighthug:

I had a snow day today so guess what I was doing for the last 5 hours? I think it's time for some hot cocoa and Christmas movies, mmm sounds nice! c:

This is lovely! everything about this works together so effortlessly. The mane is breathtaking. Incredible.
My only critique would be that the left wing should be placed further back on the horse more where the withers end. Do you see what I'm saying?
Anyway, it's really a great manip. :heart:

Thank you so much! But yes I definitely see what you're saying. (:
I had thought something was off with the wings, but I couldn't really put my finger on it. Now that you mention it, it does look a bit pushed forward haha!
Thanks again though! :heart:

That hair is to die for. Do you mind giving me a few tips on how to get to that level. :huggle:

:iconmockingale:
mockingale Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012
Thank you so much! :heart: Well if you want to see how I do my hair, I have a mane and tail tutorial, [link] . That's how I do them.

As for how to obtain a higher level, it comes down to practice (even if it's not a complete manip, just open Photoshop and start practicing with an uncut stock image or something) and observing other people's work and style. I looked up a ton of tutorials on how everyone else did their mane and tails, and I tried different techniques until I found the one that I did the best. Then, your style sort of starts to evolve from there. You need to get technique down before worrying about style; style usually just forms on its own, to be honest. c: Stay open to different ways to do them, try different varieties of hair type (wavy, straight, curly, messy) and just try to broaden your horizons and get as much experience & practice in as you can! That's the only way you can improve. Just keep at it! Good luck haha! :aww:
