Bring Me The Horizon - Suicide Season

First horse of the year! I planned to make it a painted unicorn but after the background took its final form, I figured the outcome might have been.. well, a bit too something I can't really put into words! :lol: But anyway this piece ended up having a lot of personal meaning for myself and I don't feel very comfortable explaining it more than that. I'll give you guys some space to interpret it the way you like. I think I'm especially happy with this one because the background is fully hand-painted too and I didn't use any textures for it like I've often done with these type of backgrounds.

I hope you like the painting too, and thanks for taking a look! :)

I've actually been having trouble telling if these pictures are real or drawn. XD I was debating. Absolutely AMAZING! You bring out the true beauty in horses in all of their different forms. The realism is just extraordinary! I'm not even a millionth of as good as you. You're just amazing! You can almost get lost in the pictures. You can see a soul in the horses' eyes. I can' t even tell you how absolutely amazing your art is!

Such amazing wonderful work! I so admire you and your style, the cripsness and details - so lifelike yet somehow much better then real life - crisper cleaner brighter. Sigh, please keep posting up your work, they are such an inspiration for me. I come to your gallery everytime I have a bit of art block - so wonderful and beautiful.
