Alone in Everfree by IFoldBooks Alone in Everfree by IFoldBooks
Dear Princess Celestia,

I have learned a very important lesson. Always back up your damned work on an external device, so when your hard disk decides to go bust, you don't lose hours of blood and toil.

Your faithful student.

P.S Pony anatomy is really tedious.
P.P.S The dodge tool is awesome.


Finally got something out! yay...

Experimenting with new technique and styles. This was painted on one layer only. Please critique! (if you want to... that is...)

:iconbisonyesplz: An EqD feature!

if you look close at the center, you notice a humanish figure, that could be the slenderman

Nice, I like the way the water and the forest came out. Good placing of the lighting too. Now, maybe add a little more detail on the foreground, or "suggested" detail. :D

What do you mean by, "suggested detail"?

It's like when you don't paint each and every individual scale on a dragon, but enough to give the impression he's covered with them.

Oh my. I LOVE this. Its a bit hard to sense what Fluttershy is feeling, with closed eyes and no mouth. I am going to assume she is just feeling very serene and at peace though. the whole feeling of the piece feels great, but I especially like the little waterfall. The way how the forest just sorta disappears in the darkness of the background is great too. This will be my new pony background for a while I think :)

That means I got something right for once :D

For me, the eyes could be arguably the centerpiece of the entire picture. I experimented with opened eyes for a while, but then decided leaving them closed would be a better idea. First, it allows for much more interpretation on the viewer's part. Second, I'm too lazy to draw them open.

The river and the waterfall there (I think :P) to give more serenity to the piece. And also as an excuse to spice up an otherwise boring forest. One thing I've learned as an artist is that you have to give a place for the viewer to focus. I if had left the background lighted, the entire thing would have been a mess :P.

And thank you! It means a lot to me :)

To tell the truth, I find forests hard to draw. There's just so much diversity and room for detail I have to force myself to stop before I get carried away. For example, I can see where a couple of mushrooms could spice up the picture :P
