Brilliant as always. Love the way how your work is progressing and making the viewer to try to figure out what you have wanted to say! What else can I say, the light and shadow are well presented creating illusion as if you were exactly there in front of this remarkable creature. Although the overall tones used are relatively dark and may leave oppressive feeling then the bright light in the corner creates brilliant contrast. Also it could represent hope and positive thinking while surrounded with depression. Additionally like the way harsh materials such as brutal rocks are next to soft as well as wavy fur of the tail. Overall creating an excellent piece of art.
The style and design is awesome. However, the lighting on the leg, I feel should stand out more (just a person feeling). Because of its proximity to the white hair on the horse it doesn't really draw my eye to it as easily as it should. In fact the first time I looked at it, I didn't realize the leg was any different than the others. I do love your style though, your line-work, proportions, lighting, shadows all are amazing! I have to add as well, great job at taking inspiration from others without copying or imitating their work. I know a lot of people who cannot do that. You took inspiration from those other images and make something in your own style! Great job!
