    it'll also be great if somebody tells me how to add an image to a thread so it'll show in the thread list... i've forgotten how to do that

    It looks like you made up the horses body and the rams horns and body because they don't have the same lighting and form to them as the girl they seem squeezed into the picture space when they couldn't really fit there. Where is the rest of the horse?

    Very nice rendering going on and interesting concept overall, but as dpaint mentioned, the lighting is pretty helter- skelter (eg., the mysterious rim lighting on ram/bird). Also, was it your intention for the figures to blend right into the background? I can obviously see the albino color scheme continuing in the background, but there is just no feeling of depth/space since the values and contrast is all similar throughout.
    Last thing, I think the perspective on the background panels, which are implying that the horizon line is at bird/horse's eye level is also throwing the whole image off (I guess that could have been intentional, for that whacky, circus feeling). Honestly, I'm liking the first sketch drawing better than the last version.

    thank you guys for your replies. I'm feeling very stiff and stupid about this drawing though I'm going to finish it anyway. your help means really much to me!

    here's the updated image. I changed the background a bit but I'm still not satisfied... I don't know what to do =(

    squeezed composition was my intention though after your comment I saw that it's offset to the right. I cut the composition and now I'm satisfied with it. it's squeezed because I've been trying to create somewhat like surreal and whacky feeling,

    the rest of the horse is behind ram's horn where the bird's sitting. I intended that the horse'd stand in diagonal... dunno how to explain it correctly even in my native language, hope you understand what I mean.

    thanks a lot for your comment! the only problem is that you showed me my mistakes and didn't give any hint to solution...

    I changed a background a bit but I really have no idea how to make the figures pop out the background. Maybe I need to increase contrast of the figures but I'm afraid that I'll lose their colors.

    Also I feel that there're not enough colors in the picture, the colors are too boring but I - again - have no idea what to do...

    I feel so stiff and stupid maybe I just need to forget about this work for a while and come back to it after a couple of months.
