This is so cool!!!!!!!!:nod: You did a great job with matching everything. All the light appears to be coming from the same direction, always hard in manips. I really like the choice of horse. It has a really cool pose with lots of shiny rippling muscles. What would be funny is if in the next frame the bird was in it's mouth. ZOMBIE HORSE strikes again! OK, I have Halloween on the brain.=D

You haven't done any new art lately! School? That's definitely my problem.:o This is my first year of high school and I have so much homework and everything is so competitive, not with others, but with yourself. They expect you to beat your former scores each time and if you ace it, you have to keep acing it.:eager: I hate my other self for being so competitive with me.:laughing:

Oh, and thank you for the favourite!:heart:

Thank you soso much :nuu: Hehe thanks, to be honest this is probably one of my favourite works. :heart: Yeah, I loved the stock photo so much I just had to do something with it. :D Hahah, that would be so cool, I might do something like that for Halloween! :la:
I knooow, I'm actually working on a few things, just got a new graphics tablet so I'm trying out some stuff, but school is taking up too much time.. :o I'm in transition year which is like a break between junior and leaving cert in Ireland, so it could be worse I guess. I know what you mean though and it sucks. :ohnoes: Good luck beating yourself!..that sounds kinda bad :P
No problem, I love your stuff. :happybounce:

Yeah, but I'm pretty easy to beat. :laughing: I know about Transition and Leaving Certificate. I'm Irish, in case you didn't know.:laughing: I moved to the US last Summer to live with my aintin. I'm fourteen and I just started high school this year, autumn. I finished what they call middle school, 7th and 8th grade, last school year. A school year starts in September, autumn and ends in May, Spring, just before summer. They have the entire summer off here in the US. Amazing in a way. It's almost three months long!! 9th through 12th grade is high school. I'm the freshman class. It's a straight four year program. I go to a private school and I really love it even if it is a tough competitive curriculum. Masha, my sis, is in college now, first year. She loves it. She goes to the college in town and lives in the dorms. All freshman are required to live in the dorms their first year. It's part of the enrichment program, living outside of home, getting along with people, participating in the spiritual aspects of church and community. She comes home on week-ends though.

Good luck in Transition.=D:heart: What are you going to focus on? It's your call what you want to do. It sounds like so much fun. You can learn a language.:nod: That's probably what I would do. Masha learned Spanish because it's a great language to know if you live in the US. It can open doors to jobs. Whatever you do, don't goof off. I hear that's the big problem with Transition. Learn something meaningful and do the job programs. You can take art too, can't you? Especially now that you got a new tablet, woo-hoo!:w00T!: Go for it.=D Masha said to have fun, don't be afraid to learn new things. Transition is a great idea in theory but you only get out of it what you put into it,so she said, don't squander these months, make them count. Learn stuff. She's playing big sister with you.:laughing:

Well, that's okay then! :P Yessum I knew that, Irish buddies. :meow: Do you like living in the US? Ooh, that's exciting, I just started a new school too, I moved from an oppressive Catholic school to a much nicer Comprehensive school which I love. :D What county in Ireland did you live in? :) That's awesome. Ooh, I see, it's good you're enjoying school, it's horrible when you don't enjoy it. :happybounce: Oh, excellent, what is she studying? That's nice, I guess you make a lot more friends that way!
Thank you. :meow: Well I'm hoping to focus mostly on art and horses, my mam and I recently bought a horse so I'm dedicating most of my time to her. :heart: In my school we do a year project, and it can be on anything you want, so I'm making an art portfolio which is going to be fun, I hope. :la: Yes, there's a lot of people who see it as a doss year and don't do anything, but they have no fun.. So far it's great though, there's so many things we can try. :D Hehe tell her I said thank you so much, I'll definitely take her advice! :heart:

Yeah, I do like it here.:nod: I live in a mountain town with lots wild forest. My backyard is a forest! I can run for miles (they say miles here) and not see a living soul. I love that part of it. It's so wild and green...but you can take a girl out of Ireland but you can't take Ireland out of the girl.=D I lived on a family farm in Kilkenny. Actually it wasn't too far from Inistioge where they filmed a lot of movies I've heard. My mam's side of the family is rich and they own some land there. I'm Pavee, by the way, which all started with my grams who ran away, married a Pavee and had my mam, who had me. My mam didn't want me growing up in the oppression Pavees face. Irish Pavees are cool but the British Travelers really give us all a bad name with their ways, if you know what I mean. Please don't write back and say you're a Brit Traveler, I'll be so embarassed.:laughing: Anyway, my mam brought me up on the farm away from it all and taught me King's English and Irish. She forbade the speaking of Gammon. She feared if I could only speak Gammon, I would be done for, marked for life. So I grew up there. When I was ten my mam died. My da, bless his heart, couldn't function. He was a wee bit into the drink, you know, so I got sucked into the System where I literally got lost because they had "changed" my name. Oi, really bad. I was right there in a town not too far away, but no one knew. My mam's family tried to find me but I just disppeared. That's how bad the child welfare system is. It's so prehistoric. Tell your parents not to die on you until you're fully grown. Seriously. I also spenty time in Galway near the boundaries of Connemara. My da who is a really good artist spent a lot of time there in the little art colonies. It's beautiful there.

It's Masha's first year, so she's doing her GE requirments. She explained them as classes you have to take in order to get your degree. They are classes from all the major academic fields. She has to take so many English, history, science/art, and math classes to fulfill her General Education requirements for Bacclaurete (sp?) Frosh and Sophomores usualy focus on these classes and then focus on their majors in their Junior/Senior years. She wants to go into the health field. She's not sure in what position yet, whether on the business admin side or the the practicing side. She wants to help build hospitals in third world countries. I know, ambitious.:nod: I think I would want to be a nurse. We could work together.:giggle: Masha is a total brainiac so she will do well in pre-med.

Don't even say the term "Catholic school" to me. Until my mam died, I was home-schooled. I think I'm still emotionally scarred from the bleakness of the system schools. I love my Catholic friends, but I always tell them, you guys have the worst schools. They tend to agree with me.:giggle: I'm glad you're out of there.=D

Horses!! Yes, go for it, do it.:dance: Learn all about them. Knowing horses can get you quick jobs and into big horse operations doing something you love. Masha came to the US before me and her sponsors lived right next to a ranch.:wow: They had full aqua facilities for training injured horses and such.

Definitely no dossing!!:no::) That's the reputation and problem with Transition, people waste it. It's supposed to be like a sabbatical. Teachers do it. They take a year off from teaching and go travel, write a book, learn a language, a culture, do something enriching and then they come back to school refreshed and knowledgeable, having grown spiritually as a human being. Transition always sounded really cool to me in that respect. They don't have that here in the US but almost all schools offer year contracts to go live in a foreign country and attend a school there, usually in the mission/health field. Masha and her roommate/BFF went to Guatamala for six months and learned Spanish. They had taken it all through school but when they went to a country where they had to speak it 24/7, they learned fast and got credit that applied to their diplomas. I might do the program later when I'm a junior.

Definitely build a portfolio of your art work. That's a wonderful idea. Who knows, you may want to go to Photoshop school and become a certified Instructor/artist. You can teach and do what you love at the same time, AND get paid for it. :nod: Always a good deal.;)

That's good that you like it! Wow, that sounds wonderful... I wish I lived in the countryside. :dummy: I live in a housing estate in North Dublin; sometimes I feel like I'm missing out on the real Ireland, the green-ness and the natural beauty.. Hehe, that's so true. :la: I like Kilkenny, Inistioge is supposed to be beautiful. :meow: Woah, that's really interesting. Nope, I'm most certainly not :D I'm terribly sorry about your mam,loss is tough to deal with at that age. I understand; I suppose that's the Irish way of dealing with grief.. Oh, yes, the System. I guess you could say my family utterly despise them; my mam was adopted because her mother had her out of wedlock and y'know the Irish Catholics and their opinion on illegitimate children :disbelief: She's still searching for her father, but the nuns won't give her all her papers and it's horrible for her. She found her mother, but her mother died soon after that; before she got a chance to tell her who her father was. :hmm: Anyway, I'm aware of the horrors. :( Galway is stunning :happybounce: I'm assuming you get your artistic talent from your dad then? :meow:
Ooh I see. That's brilliant, I hope she does really well. :D Wow, that's awesome, they're pretty wonderful ambitions though. Good luck, I hope you get to work together. Being a nurse would be tough; but so rewarding. :dummy:
I shall never mention it again. :shh: I'd love to be home-schooled.. system schools are horrible. I had about 3 friends in my previous school, out of 800 or so students... :noes: I love my new school though. :happybounce: So am I!
Yayy horses. :la: I will! :nod: Horses are one of the most important things to me. :heart: Ooh wow! That sounds amazing.
Hehe, it certainly is. It's too good of an opportunity to waste. :noes: It's definitely a year for growing, as a person and socially too, it's a great time to build friendships. :) Woah, that sounds amazing! I'd love to live abroad for a while..Yes, that's definitely the best way to learn a language! :lol: You should definitely do it, it sounds awesome!
I'm planning to do 2 digital and 3 traditional pieces, so I'm coming up with loads of ideas at the moment. :meow: I'd love to go to PS school! I've been reading so many tutorials lately, I may as well go :D

I absolutely LOVE this! First of all, I think you did a great job of blending the different pictures together. It looks very natural, like it could have actually been shot like this. The lighting is lovely too... still somewhat realistic but with a definite touch of fantasy. I feel like there is a lot of symbolism behind this piece as well. Just lovely. ♥
