Create Your Own Horse!

23 coat colors :
22 white patterns :
-2x splash white,
-3x appaloosa pattern,
5 non-white patterns :
-zebra pattern for body+mane and tail
6 variations of leg markings (white stockings and stripes)
7 variations of face markings
2 eye colors (blue and brown)
4 hooves colors
12 mane and tail colors
shading and lighting of full body and mane and tail
Try to manipulate the opacity of shadows layer and all the pattern layers. Lighter coats (albino, light grey) require lighter shades and dapples on darker coats (bay, liver chesnut) look better when the opacity level is low.
Also if You are working with any other program then Gimp 2.6 the layers modes might not work properly. The shadows layer should be set to the multiply mode and the lights layer to the overaly/soft light/something like that mode as well as the Brindle, Bend-Or Spots and Dapples layers.
