When Dreaming by theinferiorone When Dreaming by theinferiorone
(download for full size)

"When dreaming I'm guided to another world
Time and time again
At sunrise I fight to stay asleep
'Cause I don't want to leave the comfort of this place
'Cause there's a hunger, a longing to escape
From the life I live when I'm awake..."

So after I took this image through many different phases, I decided this was the best version. I started it when I was filled with emotion and finished it without quite as much umph...but I am surprisingly very pleased with it!

Yes, I have used this same stock horse in three pictures now. =P (Winter Revival and Vehenmah are the other two) I believe those two are just about my most popular ones so far too! Fancy that. So of course, big thanks to ~Snowyowl88 who provides the fantastic horse stock and =larfsalot who provided the horse's front legs for Winter Revival and this image. :XD:

So, enjoy and interpret this however you like =)

Simply stunning! I love the colors you used, and the small effects that are spattered about! The smoothness of everything, especially the horse, makes the entire composition seem even more like a dream, which fits perfectly into the theme!

It's gorgeous! :D

I love the colors and the fantasy/dream-like quality to it. And the mane and tail, and the horse, and basically everything else. ^^

Oh, and since I'm a stalker and read other people's comments like that, for what Katie said, since the water is kinda ripple-y, then maybe the reflection could be more ripple-y? Ahh... I dunno. I make no sense. XD

(Is this SeaLight from MT?!)

It makes perfect sense and you're absolutely right. I didn't even think about that! :XD:

This is SO beautiful!

May I make a suggestion?
I was unsure that the bottom half of the image was a reflection, so maybe.. making that a bit more... reflectioneyy? XD
i don't know, but err amazing! :D
