~About time she gets her gown wet.


I had decided to picked up Tyler Edlin's tutorial over at gumroad.com/tyleredlinart to learn more painting and concept techniques. If the landscape looks slightly familiar, that's because it is. Part of his detailing method was something I always wanted to implement in my own work, but I did not know how to get to that stage. So, long story short, I watched all his videos, painted alongside while its playing (I learnt tons! Value, composition, etc.), and unnecessarily added something.

11/10 will buy more from him.

Edit: Just adjusted the contrast slightly. Taken comments into account and had made some small changes.

I don't usually care much for wintry scenes when it comes to art, but this one with Rarity is really quite nice. :)

This is simply beautiful. The landscape fit perfectly with using Princess (Rarity) Platinum as the star pony. Well done!

In a way, I don't like this one. I can't use it as a wallpaper Q_Q
Lovely piece though.
