Ghost Under Rocks by Rimfy Ghost Under Rocks by Rimfy

We're gripping seats and plots,
Pleading to honored lots
To give us this much more,
Safe from a cutting shear

On every,
On every inch of stone,
Skin and cloth
Made to leave you

Ghost Under Rocks by Ra Ra Riot


Well this wasn't intended to be great or anything special. It's just a quick piece to get my creative juices flowing in preparation for my next piece. I have to say, though, drawing the arrow and heart were fun ^.^

by the way, I really recommend listening to Ra Ra Riot ;D

I love how you're able to make typical horse photos look like they're totally painted. And the heart and arrow add a nice, original touch, and make it different from all the rest of the manips with similar scenes. :)

i downloaded this and investigated it closer, especially the head and shoulder. that eye just drips with awesome-sauce, along with the mane and tail. the lighting and the mood makes you feel like you shouldn't be so close to the subject, like you aren't supposed to see all the details because it makes you want to know the story inside. i'm intrigued!

wow :) me likey lol who doesnt?! may i ask a question? how do you draw all the little details (like the arrow and the heart) and making them look real? like (sorry if im confusing you lol) do you draw them when the picture is huge (like 2000 x 1000) or does it not matter?
Reply
:iconrimfy:
Rimfy Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2010
Thanks! haha As for the details I use between a 1-5 px round brush at least at a 60% opacity. I'm pretty sure I did this when the picture was at its largest size and then when I resized it I redefined the details. I think getting it to look "real" is a matter of practice. I'm thinking about doing a step by step tutorial on how I drew the details on this, though.
