WOW i love this design (O:
The name really does suit this piece so well(O: I really love the idea of the horses taking their freedom...

I gave you (4) for vision because it’s clear to me that you really thought this through and got my attention.

Originality got a wonderful (4 and a half) it is not something i have seen done on DA before.

Sadly I gave you a (3) for Technique: the front horse seems to be too blurred and it still looks a bit cut out. I must say you did well with the lighting and the effect it creates is great. Also wonderful use of stock

Impact (5) really stunning idea and would love to see more of your work in the future.

Regards Nicolene Lorette design

Lovely. I wish this was available in a widescreen format for wallpaper! I would gladly pay for the honour of having this grace my desktop.

Calliopes are one of my favourite things, and this brings the dream I've had in my head since I was a child right out in front of my eyes. Lovely execution.

I'd like to see more of the carousel patterning on the second horse as it fades between the first and the last. The last horse looks like it is on another plane of existence, so that technique there could have been executed a bit better, in my opinion.

That said, they are nitpicks and the image is still magical and lovely. Thank you for sharing this. Keep on creating! <3

This is an incredible image: dreamy, haunting, symbolic, and simply beautiful! It shows Anne's creativity, and ability to create new worlds out of existing ones. Well done, and thanks so much for sharing!
