Trapped In Endless Ice | Personal Manip by impassioned-dreams Trapped In Endless Ice | Personal Manip by impassioned-dreams
*105 faves! thank you so much guys!♥

Nothing burns like the cold.
***DOWNLOAD FOR FULL VIEW***
I'm really quite happy with this(:
Anyways, I'm really unsure about the ice on the water :$ but I like the prep quite a bit as well as the mane and tail and chains (:
If anyone wants to manip her-I'd love you :heart:

Lacara: bold | humble | she fears her power | cautious | mature | vengeful
She is a reverse silvery/blue roan with an almost white mane and a bright blue eye. She has ice chains keeping her two front legs, two hind legs and her neck and muzzle restricted. Anything she touches turns to ice. She is 16 hh.

Comments/Critiques and Faves are all greatly appreciated! Critiques are amazing and I always would like to know how I should Improve! :heart:

I'll list pros and cons ;D

Pros:
Wonderful stock choices
The lighting adds such a cool effect to the horse it makes it focus on her
The hair is gorgeous
PREP is just stunning
I see how you added on some moss at the end of the point great work!
You have so much detail in this - even the dots on the locks of the chains
great hoof repainting
The creativity! Adding the ice like the horse is freezing the water is so creative! :heart:

Cons:
I will be as harsh as possible like you said cx
Some of the hair strands are a bit pixely like not smooth maybe lower opacity a tad?
Look on the top of the horses back - there is some black from the original stock ;D I do that ALL the time lol
Where the horse touches the water and you wanted to look like ice - don't get me wrong it looks amazing - it's just the perspective of it. It looks like ice fog if you know what I mean c: If there is a setting on PS you use that deals with perspective try pushing that back edge of the layer back (:
So idk about this one because you may have done it on purpose it's just one of those things haha: See how the horse looks stringy? Almost like streaks? Maybe go the opposite way with a smudge to make it more smooth? But idk because I know you may have done that on purpose c;

Overall this is such a great piece. I really had to zoom in tons because it was so gorgeous. Your style is so unique.

Keep up the great work! :hug:

The chained horse... One of the most interesting picture's plots. The shackled hose is the symbol of the prisoner, who want to be free from the imprisoning. It will better, if horse will be chained up, but shackles are good too, because its the symbol of freedom in the future. Shackles are the symbol of the prison, and if horse would break them, it can be freedom from its imprisoning. The clearness nature near horse says about clear future.
About technique: Wery nice conceptual: beautiful horse, beautiful nature but... I say that clearless chains will better, because horse wasn't released. But work is nice.
If you like works with future freedom symbolic, you have to draw the birds with chained wings and legs, because bird is a symbol of the freedom
