Destruction by Adiwan Destruction by Adiwan
I decided to make another abstract picture, this time one with the Golden Oaks Library that was burnt down at the end of Season 4 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
This time I used a screenshot for this and add my little spin on that image.

It was made with PaintToolSai and some color enhancements were done with Photoshop.
This picture took roughly a month to make with a lot of pauses between each painting session.

Echoing my thoughts from elsewhere: I like this a lot. It has a very Wassily Kandinsky/Franz Marc feel to it.

Thanks a lot.

Certainly it's more leaned towards to Franz Marc's style. It's the main inspiration for this style (and thinking about impossible paper foldings and cuts).

The crisp edges of all the shapes appeared to be the kind you can only achieve through a vectoring program. I was surprised it was done on SAI.

They look so crisp because the picture was originally painted in a much higher resolution and I resized it down.
It is a very simple trick.

Well, now that's an interesting concept. It's not a picture you see every day in this fandom.

Pictures you see every day are boring, am I right?

Eh, people just NEED TO misinterpret everything in the worst possible way, eh? Pictures I see every day are just not 'abstract' :P

Abstract-style pictures? Not enough of these. I hope you'll continue making these, the style is wonderful.

Thanks.
These pictures take a lot of time and I have an ask blog running that needs my attention too (besides having a real life).
I'll make another one eventually.

I won't even ask the amount of layers you used in this one...
Reply
:iconadiwan:
Adiwan Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Mainly one layer. I added two more to adjust the colors and lightness at a few spots.

Alumx Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Student Digital Artist
So all the light and shadow effects were drawn by hand?
Reply
:iconadiwan:
Adiwan Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, except for a few spots for adjustment. I was too lazy at the end.
