Edit// Removed pixels outside the template edge :P

Something else I made for the weekly challenge, but I wasn't happy with the way it turned out and so I made something else (see the galloping horse diamond instead), but thought it would be nice to share it anyway. The mouth is the most "off" part I think. Therefore constructive crits are welcome, but just saying it sucks won't give me a clue how to change it for the better, so remember that.

I actually don't like horses, but I do like unicorns. I like working with their shapes from an artistic point of view.

 @ ECPixel - thanks for that, I forgot to double check that there weren't any outside the template by using a clipping mask haha XD Fixed that now : )

You need a lot more contrast in your colours, right now the colours are way to soft and the whole thing feels out of focus. Also try some hue shifting by pushing the shadow more to a purple and the highlight to a yellow etc...

Also neck needs more shadow..


Also I'd avoid using pallet generators as the tend to be pretty bad. Observe some of the other pixeljoint members for ideas. Especially take a look at Dawnbringer who's great with colours.

Remove few pixels, you have gone beyond the borders of the canvas. Maybe you should make the colours more contrast to each other, they are too close in tone.
