:bulletblack::bulletwhite: SEASONAL GODS: SUMMER:

This is the first photo-manipulation of four in the "seasonal gods" series!
Summer brings rich vegetation and warm weather, but this seasonal god is soon overpowered by another, who is known as Autumn...
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:
- These past months I have been battling an absolutely horrible art block which has lasted since November. My good friend =TheCallyBear helped me to overcome it and I seriously cannot thank her enough. And of course a huge thank you to the stock providers! I could not have made this piece without your brilliant images.
I've been spending these last few weeks painstakingly working on this and I really do hope that you guys like it! xx :rose:

INSPIRATION:
- "Alone in Kyoto" - Air, "Theme of the Celestials" from the Okami soundtrack, and music from Joe Hisaishi.

That is fab.  Love the background choice... the way it's framed makes you feel like you're hidden and watching the magic pass by and the details keep you looking closely. :iconclearflowerplz:

If that were a deer, it would look almost like a Sawsbuck (from Pokemon). Both Sawsbuck and this forest-spirit horse are marvelous creatures

The touches of different colors in here are amazing. They are beautiful and don't come off as being to rainbow. I particularly love the bits of orange and blue. :)

Holy flying shit buckets...
WHY AM I NOT WATCHING YOU? X_X

Like, everything about this is perfect.
I could go on and on and on...

The colours are *beautiful*
I REALLY love how contrasted the surroundings are compared to the mushrooms and flowers...

I just love how detailed everything is... and how bright the Mushrooms are and the lily's and flowers...
Even the small lines of light on the leaves and the log is just perfect lighting... :heart:

The hair is beautifully painted... its really simple styles as well, but so beautifully done <3

and the TREE.
HOLY SHIT.
Such a UNIQUE idea, is AMAZING.
:heart:
One of my favourite manip yet....

three cheers for beating that art block! this is so stunningly beautiful - when I zoomed in my chin hit the floor. it's just wonderful... the tree antlers and little humming bird are my favorite bits but the mushrooms and flowers add such a delicate touch. you go girl!

(can you do a details panel for this? :la:)
