The Gray Horse

Once upon a time there lived a stonehearted and stingy farmer. As a greedy man without conscience he tried to increase his belongings with regularly thefts. One night he went out around midnight and found a georgous gray horse tied up near a church.

He took the horse and rode it home. It galloped up the alley as if it knew where the farmer lived. But suddenly it stopped and the farmer was shocked to see the horse turn into the devil himself. He laughed at him, grabbed the farmer and broke his neck.

From this day on a lot of people didn't find their sleep anymore in the night because they heard the neighing and the gallop of the ghost horse, the restless soul of the damned farmer. He wasn't freed until the residents put up a cross in that alley.


This is my entry for the Thinking in or out of the box Contest

naja...das hintere hinterbein könnte nen kräftigeren schatten haben, so sieht es ein bisschen aus, als wären die beine miteinander verwachsen^^
und vllt ein oder zwei highlights setzne, damit die musklen dort etwas mehr zur geltung kommen...ich weiß nich, ob das ende des schwanzes dann noch stören würde...vllt ne schattenebene noch drunter legen, damit er etwas klarer wird...
aber ich stelle nur vermutungen, also...^^;

der hintergrund ist genial, aber der pferdekörper wirkt nicht so richtig, besonders die hinterbeine...da hab ich zu sehr das gefühl, dass es ins bild reingesetzt wurden ist...farblich ist es ziemlich perfekt abgestimmt

vielen dank für den kommentar, es ist wichtig auch mal sachen zu lesen! du hast recht, ich finde auch dass da mit dem schatten oder den umrissen noch was gemacht werden könnte. hättest du eine idee wie ichs verbessern könnte, bin für anregungen immer dankbar!
