Wow, this is finally finished. Guys, this is what I've been struggling with for the past month. Ya'll had better like it.
No, I'm kidding. But anyways. There are so many little details, and everything was hand-painted, other than the horses and background.

What is the story behind the chains and bandages?

It's a gorgeous piece and I can tell it took you millions of hours. The horse looks like it is in pain but was able to escape what ever was holding it captive.

Wow! I can tell you spent time on this. So well blended, the colours fit perfectly and it gives me such a gloomy feeling. It's even so well done I spent time actually spotting the - dead I suppose? - horse in the background. It just blends perfectly into the background. Awesome job :D

I was so busy gawking at the spectacular mane and tail (serious love for those) I didn't realise who the horse was under there! Moony just looks fab!

I love, love, love this piece to death though! The man and tail! The chains! The bandages! The bone! Ah! So much love for this! And such excellent composition. *strokes pretty piece of art* Gimme your skills!
