I love how similar yet different they all look; the title fits the piece perfectly. You have also captured the light and shadow on their coats beautifully. ^^

I love it, you did a great job.
I feel for you for the fact that your scanner didn't do it justice. It looks really good though, I wonder how it "really" looks?
I can see the amount of detail and thought that went into this, the fur on the body is amazing, and I love the eyes.
Again, great job.

The background looks great! You got a nice blended blurry look to it, I like it. I like the shine to the horses as well, but somehow their mane looks a little weird to me? Anyway, great job!

Well the mane is covered with thistle (not sure if it's the right word), you know those round sticky things that get stuck to your clothes :aww:

I know what you mean about the scanner. It always sounds like 16 million colors is more than anyone should need, but it's really only 255 values per hue. So any time you're working in a short range of values, like in this image, it's easy to find the limitations of monitors frustrating. Just keep in mind that more information than you can see on the monitor can be stored. If you scan it as a 16bit image rather than a typical 8 bit, you'll get a full 64,000+ values per hue. Even if you can't see all those values on the screen, you'll be able to see them if you get prints done.

This is absolutely incredible! There is so much detail and to think that more of them were lost in the transition from paper to computer is sad, but amazing.
This is very well done.
