When it was time for a career change, I had an image in my head of stepping off of a swiftly moving carousel. So this image of a leap of faith is particularly meaningful to me. Thank you.

Did you know that ~stock-karr got a daily-deviation for that stock carousel? How can you make a stock picture (digital camera by the way) a daily deviation?
You deserve it much more!

Thank you so much!! This one was so fun to do, considering all the stock was taken in broad daylight. It was a challenge to get the right tomes, and keep any daylight from seeping through!

My eight-year-old self wants that horse sooooo much - to get on it and ride off into magical places… :D I love the sheer dynamism of the horse freeing itself from the carousel, and the glow of the carousel set off by the dark blue hues. Beautiful! :heart:

very interesting piece. tho i agree there is something about the palette on the darker side that is a bit off compared to the saturation on the brighter side.

Foxfires Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you!! :hug:

Actually the funny thing is I did that dark palette on the side on purpose. lol When the whole carousel is brightly lit, it looked 'off' in my opinion. I think I was going more off of the memory as a child, feeling like the 'far' side of the carousel was always a little.....scary? The side that was furthest away from mom. Heh. Anyway....I wondered if people would think it looked strange. Guess I got my answer! ;)

it must be I ocd about color palettes...!
it's an awesome composition and I understand how you use the variations to determine the instances of it, and it's a great concept too!
