Rather large file... download at your own risk. P:

Yeah, I was bored while I was making it. So, I thought I'd make a walkthrough. For whoever might happen to care.

I paint it on, with a low opacity brush. (:

I used a combination of layer masks, curves, brightness/contrast, and overlaying colors. It was too odd for me to explain, and I use different methods in all of my pictures for background adjustment, I didn't think it would help much. P:

Basically use dark masks/painting around the outside, and white on the inside. x]

Wow, I love this! I must try my hand at these manipultation thingies, though I know Im going to fail hard core! XD

But if I may say one thing, and don't take it bad. Its just a pointer. The mane... I looks a little cartoony(?) I think that it glowed a little to much, unless that was the effect you were going for. That or the white was just to bright in comparison to the background, the horse ect.

Other wise I was beautifully fantastic, no doubt!

Naaw, we all gotta start somewhere!

And yeah, the mane and tail.... I kinda agree on the cartoonish front, but, it is a character. When the art trade was proposed, :devhsladar: only showed me one ref, and they seemed to glow then too... so I went with glowing. P: hahaa

Wow, this is so cool! Great walkthrough, and very nice piece! This is really going to help me out: I just started getting into photomanipulations myself, and since I'm self-taught in PS... well, you get it. :XD:

haha, for years and years, yes. x] I was pretty awful, but it gets better. You can just look in my 2008 folder, the difference is pretty drastic.
