This scene, just the way you drew it. The clouds, the way they are sleeping, the vibe im getting from this. It's all just adorable! :D This also reminds me so much of the fanfic/audio drama called Bride of discord. Its the same setup except its nighttime. I absolutely love this!

Nice! :)

Heh, it's just like in "Super Mario"... [link]  ;)

I've also been reading (and quite enjoying) "Chaotic Neutral", where you used this as the cover image.

Actually, it was only because of the little tid-bit that said "cover art is mine" that I got curious.

Because on a brief first glance over the story-page, my initial impression was "random generic adventure, with random image stolen through Google".
Ehehehe. Err. ^^;

The quality of the artwork speaks of time and dedication put into the creative act - thus, a certain level of quality may be also expected in the written word. Therefore, "great cover image by story-author = higher likelihood of people reading it". =P

... Problem is, you can't tell it apart from all the thousands of people who just google something and use that. :roll:

I mean, it's a very lovely image - but for the fimfiction cover version, I'd suggest adding the story-title to it to make it more "distinct" in that regard. ;)

Hey there :D thanks for checking my stuff out!
I think you're completely and totally right. I've been thinking of actually drawing a proper cover for Chaotic Neutral since this image actually just started out as a placeholder until I could do so. However, now it's been such a long time, if I change the cover art I wonder if it would be jarring for people who have been following the story for a long time.

I'm drawing for a convention in a couple of weeks, but I think after that I probably will sit down and make a proper cover for myself with a title. I think you've given me some veru good reasons to do so that I didn't think of before.

And thank you for all the kind words :hug:

You're welcome! :)

I too am both artist and MLP-fanfic writer myself. ;)

Well, actually I was thinking you could just add a title text to the image you already have. There seems to be enough space to add one in the "sky"-portion of the image. :nod:

Just be sure the title doesn't look like it's been plainly added in Microsoft Paint, and you should be good to go! ^^;
C-Puff's avatar
Haha! Yeah no kidding, right? That's why I think drawing a matching image might be a better idea/

I... wasn't trying to be sarcastic. :XD:

But I see your point. ^^;

What I meant to suggest was to add a "fancy looking" title text that fits the image itself quality-wise as to not create the impression of "stolen randomly off a Google-search, typed over with Microsoft Paint".

But yeah. :roll:

No I didn't think you were being sarcastic at all XD I was "laughing" because it's so true.

So adorable!! I love your style- that you keep Discord's design very close to the original yet it's clearly someone else's style! And I quite like how you exchanged the leaves and the clouds. I didn't notice it until the second time I looked ; )

Thank you so very much! X3 There are so many people with great styles for Discord I'm happy to hear mine's at least not the same as the show itself.!

It looks like a dark layer of fog behind them obscuring the tree tops to me. You know? Before the sun hits it?

Either way you look at it it's beautiful though! Fantastic job!
