This picture was drawn for request. And though it was about robo-pony OC only, I've got this pretty idea with future robo-pony discovering something really alive.

I've spent a whole lots of time (25-30 hours I think) on this, but I really happy with this result!

25-30 hours?! Ain't nobody got time for that!

You, my good sir (or madam, I don't honestly know), are absolutely crazy. But I guess insanity in mild doses is healthy, and this piece definitely shows the time and work put into it. Good job; you get a cookie.

25 hours was my average speed earlier. Most of my complex pictures were painted in that time (+/- 5 hours). But there were some pictures which took even more. For example "Sunbutt Portrait" took at least 60 :)

I still love the look of this picture immensely. I wish I had seen it back when I was writing my sci fi story.

It has machine ponies. It was my first story, but it was back before I'd gotten a little better at writing. heh

Hah, you do flatter me unnecessarily, sir. Hopefully I can put that practice to better use, as you've certainly been doing in your own field. ^^

I'm not sure I understood your second sentence correctly. :(

Ah, sorry. I was saying hopefully I can use my practice writing my bad stories to go on to write as well as you make art. ^^

Oh.. Ok. If that's bad stories, I wonder that you will call good ones :)

As far as I know there is no story behind that cyber-pony and will never be :(

How did you draw this?  Robo-pony looks very 3D, almost like CGI. Appears to be made of plastic rather than metal.

Almost every single part of the body has it's own layer. It helps to shade forms and not thinking about the edges all the time. Technically that's all.

All the rest are basics - perspective (though I've made many mistakes in this :)), lights & shadows, etc.

I don't know what it is, but this picture just seems really cool to me. The atmosphere is perfect in this one. Nice work.

I already know about that post. I noticed some mysterious views increasing on that picture and after checking out EqD I found the reason:)

Thanks anyway!

Почему-то после этого рисунка у меня пронеслась мысль, что художник из России :)
