I Think She Likes Horses by dfpcmaia I Think She Likes Horses by dfpcmaia
Well, since it's been ages since I've submitted something on dA, here you go. :)
I like this drawing because it took less time to complete than the previous ones I did (took me about 3 days - one hour a day) to complete, so it seems I'm improving!

Here's a tip for those of you who like as many details as you can put on a drawing: There are some things people don't look at. The trees in the back of this painting for example, were just little scribbles, I blurred them out and fogged them a bit anyway, so if I had paid attention to every leaf the quality would still be the same.

This really evokes a sense of Montana for me... Which is neat!

I like your comment on the use of simple background and I think your right about not cluttering it up for a clean realized image.

I do have one critique - the tree to the right of her is floating. You should throw some fog over the trunk maybe? (I never would have noticed, except I read your comment about not looking at things which drew my eye to the background...)

Very peaceful/serene scene here :)

nice to see that you're still drawing! =D
I really love the BG. And its true, there are things that some people don't look at, and some other things that are much better off being simple.

THIS awesomeness was made with gimp!?! *recollects self*
The girl is really pretty and the tip you gave helps me because I need to practice backgrounds and spend too much time putting a lot of detail, which ruins my pictures.
The horses are just trolloping in the back ground ^_^ I used to be obssessed with horses lol.
this is simple yet pretty

Exactly :) I used to be obsessed with making every possible detail too... When this happens, the drawing usually starts to lack composition, the viewer doesn't know where to look at and what's important. :P

Oh, and thanks for the fav! :woohoo:
