    looks good, i am still getting used to painter. i think the foreground and water needs a little polished, at least as much as the unicorn is, otherwise it looks good!

    Hey, this would be great if it was stretched a bit vertically. The Pegasus's legs and the trees all look stubby. I do like the colors but Keyu is right. The rocks and pretty much everything in the foreground should get more detail since its the closest to us. The blue light is a great touch but I think you can go farther and extend that light to our left so we can see it through those trees. That could add a lot of debth. Keep going!

    It's nicely rendered and has the environment is believable, though my honest to god critique is something you probably already know; that it is mind numbingly cliche. The color scheme and subject matter have been done about 5 million times already. I also feel like it could tell a little more of a story, than "winged horse=thirsty". Like perhaps some other creatures from the same fantasy universe as Pegasus' are hunting wild pegasus to tame, or maybe evil creatures are trying to kill it, maybe a cow with wings is in the background looking curiously at it etc. I guess what I'm trying to say is that i just feel like it doesn't have any originality to it that makes it your own. The ideas i mentioned could also be interpreted as cliche, as it's all just opinion, i hope that helps though if only a little. I'm not trying to bash it, i honestly mean well.
    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Im not a huge fan of the horse as the subject matter, but the forest and stream look great. The water is well represented, and the forest in the background looks nice and spooky. Good job.

    The tree branch in the foreground is getting in the way on the composition. Maybe you could just suggest the branch by putting it in the top left corner, with some leaves up around the edge as well. In its current state, I think it takes up too much of the image.

    Really enjoy this a lot, though I'd recommend a general contrast from warm to cool colors.. where the sun hits should be warmer (the gound, pegasus, etc) otherwise stick to the cooler bits. I think that'd help a lot. That's the kind of thing you could experiment with very easily with another layer in Photoshop.
