This is amazing. I knew the moment I took a closer look that this was a kelpie and not a horse. I love how you had the tail be so long and have the individual bones stick out. The white eyes stick to the myth quite well (That's how I recognized it!) though in the legends I've heard, they don't have irises :lol: Awesome job, Lunar!!

I love the way you did the tail, it really gives the image depth! Like most people would have stopped short of having it wind behind the horse like that, and I think because you TOOK IT ALL THE WAY TO SEXY TOWN LIKE THAT it really made this image more than just a gorgeous swamp horse. It gave it that 'I wonder where that horse came from' vibe.


YES, ALL BECAUSE OF THE TAILAGE.
