Finally this is the fifth and final version of my Before the War painting. Many improvements, a remake of the sky, color variations, unicorns eye and neck, shading and some other details are fixed. This took 40+ hours in Adobe Photoshop using a Wacom Intuos A4. Its original size is about 5000 pixel high in 300dpi. A3+ print ready. Original concept.

this is truly magnificent. Very realistic, the horse proportions are perfectly believable. I love the surrealness of the mountains within the believability of the sky!

OMG! I love it. Its eye is so blue. And i like the mushrooms growing in the trees. The backround is amazing...I dont want to be rude at all to this master pice, it is very good. I could not even get close to something like this. But to me the Unicorns cheek looks a little small. But then again look at my unicorns the cheeks are always too small, so maybe i am not use to seeing a prefectly drawn cheek. I dont know. But anyways i really do like this. Its beautful. 1
