To Cloudsdale - Commission


Badge Awards


Commission done for :iconsycharge:

He requested Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash to be placed in the foreground with a cloudscape and Cloudsdale be painted as the backdrop. It's a challenge for me since my usual paintings only consist of one pony, which is simpler in a sense that it's easier to harmonize just one pony to the background colour than two or more. I realize I still need more practice as well, which this had serve quite as one. So, I only hope that after going through several more challenging commissions like this and doing more practices in the months to come, I could get better.

As usual, your the one person that always leaves me speechless <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> 2nd ever critique so bare with me ^^"

Vision: Cant see ANYTHING wrong. Everything seems to be done with perfect quality and a even amount of lights and dark's, not to mention Fluttershy and Rainbow dash give it that "touch" of difference.

Originality: Although the characters aren't yours, the concept of Cloudsdale in the background is extremely rejuvenated in comparison to the actual version. The way it looks its indescribable as I'm unable to describe it!

Technique: I think that's an water colour/color look you gave it (although done digitally) and to be honest, it suits the picture perfectly. Clouds and water colours is probably the best combination you could do for something like that. The character have the water colour look aswell just to match the rest of the picture so its all perfect... again.

Impact: The impact is just pure wonder and intense senses of imagination. Pretty immense when you just stop and stare, plus it's not like that in reality so it just allows astronomical wonder of what could be there.


Hard finding the right words when it comes to something as amazing as this. I guess the only thing that could be improved is the anatomy of Fluttershy and Rainbow dash but otherwise cant really do much aside from stop and stare~

Lol your truly gifted <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> keep up the good work and let your imagination flow~
