This is version 4 of this picture. Old description is below.

I will be selling this version at a couple of cons this year, if all goes well!

I've always liked the original of this picture, and I always wanted to revisit it someday. I figured that this was as good a day as any.
Here's the old version (V3)

Drawfriend! #THERE IS NO NUMBER WOOOOOOO *ghost noises*



Old description




Draw a pony putting on a play/Draw a pony performing.

Hey look, one I'm actually happy with.

This is so cool! Your style for this picture is very unique and beautiful. I love the coloring technique, and the hint of red in the lineart. And not to mention her awese smirk! This is such an awesome picture!!

Thank you! The red is actually chromatic abberation. It's a simulation of a real effect, very fun.

Nice work on the dynamic action, the thicker black outline really suits this one.

I like the chromatic aberration you've used on the far side of the scene. It's given it a subtle through the lens feel which is quite fitting.

Hey! Someone else who knows what it's called!
I've recently fallen in love with chromatic aberration... It's a simple effect that makes almost any picture feel more alive and real.

I love it man, I like the idea to add the air streaks into the lines of action coming from her wings, gives the piece a relaxed feel that is welcome and really makes it seems she is floating backwards and not quite to the peak of her arch, a sort of "fade away" in the sky. The shading is obviously much better and i'm glad you took the time to revisit this piece and polish it up into a finished work that you will be looking to sell, it's fun to see this and compare it to your recent projects that you put a lot of effort into (Student of the Night). On a side note I remember nagging to death over three versions of this (sorry haha) and so it's awesome to see it updated again and in finished form.

The idea of the wing vortices was actually from a friend of mine, it was a good one.
