It looks so soft by the neck and chin, how did you do that?

Exquisitely done! :clap: Bravo!

I couldn't decide which background I like best but you have certainly captured the essence of the Arabian. I have owned, bred, raised, trained, and shown the CMK bloodines since I was 11. Wonderful image.

This is just beautiful, it's so detailed and gorgeous. I've been experimenting with bas reliefs, and I hope to do an Arabian sometime. Sculpting is fun:)

I definitely like this background best. It really makes the cameo pop.
...Well, I guess this isn't actually a cameo.

Oh, and the background looks like a marble counter to me. I was surprised to find it was paper.

Thank you. I'm glad uploading several pictures of it wasn't such a bad idea after all. People do seem to like different grounds...

And I would call it a cameo myself. Many people might call it a medallion, but I have trouble reconciling with that when it isn't actually disc-shaped...

I think this shot shows all the details the best.

This looks absolutely amazing. Compared to my stupid little plaster relief lurking in a locker, this is positively outstanding. I'm envious. ;)
