The Best Of Friends by Earthsong9405 The Best Of Friends by Earthsong9405
Completed bronycon collab print between myself and :iconboomythemc:. C: This image was originally supposed to be painted traditionally, but because I accidentally messed it up, I asked boomythemc  to color it for me; and boy, did he deliver! 8D Thanks again for coloring this for me, Boomy! ^.^

You guys should totally go check out his gallery, which can be found here:
boomythemc.deviantart.com/gall…

And I'd also recommend taking a look at his Patreon, which can be found here:
www.patreon.com/user?u=192630


So the idea behind this image is that the Mane 6 and Spike are on a vacation somewhere. Where? I dunno, but wherever they are they're having a huge blast, and to capture the moment, they took a cute photo together. The painting itself is of the photo sitting on a desk. O:

One of the several things I really love about MLP is the friendship dynamic they present regarding the Mane 6 and Spike. The lot of them are just so lovely together, and when they interact, whether it be them arguing or getting along or annoying each other or whatever else, you can still easily tell that they'd go to the end of the earth and back for one another. It's really awesome, but, I wouldn't expect less from a show called "Friendship is Magic." o3o

Buuuuuuuuuuuut yeah. Anyway, I think that's all I have to say for this image? O: As usual, feel free to ask questions, and thanks for stopping by! And please be sure to check out boomythemc and give him the props he deserves for the awesome colors. C:

This is amazing.  Absolutely incredible!  FINALLY I can imagine them in a more realistic sense and not so cartoony when I write/read my fics.

Well thank you, both for buying a print and for stopping by the booth! 8D It was nice to meet you at the con, and I hope you had just as fun of a time there as I did! ^.^

Oh! It's my pleasure. Yes, I did.  But I'm sure you would have loved to assist to some the scheduled activities and  panels. I hope you did.

It's always a pleasure to meet the artists and buy their works in person and even talk a bit like I did with you. It is just sad that I can't buy every prints, but I just have an apartment and have bills to pay too.

And I'll always be able to watch at your drawing over my computer screen now. :-)

Keep up the great work

1. They look a little... masculine.
2. Applejack staring at the viewer is a little unsettling.

If there is any complaint I may put forth on the coloring, is the lighting... or lack thereof.  Given the dull shade of the colors, it's like either a filter has been put over the picture to make it dim, or it's like something you might find in a video game, where the character models have shadows, but do not reflect any lightsource.  It almost makes me think a layer of highlights for this pic is missing, or if there is such a layer that it's not intense enough.  Does that make any sense?

Other than that, however, I really like what you two did here.  Like everypony else here thinks I imagine, your own spin on the MLP look is pretty amazing, and the coloring, complaints aside, helps complete the image nicely.  ^^
