HAVEN'T READ THE WHOLE FIC YET. I know there's probably no need to say it but just incase, NO SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS PLEASE.


Dear Princess Celestia,

Today I learned that you can never have too many layers when creating a piece of digital artwork. And I also learned that the first thing you do when starting on such a piece is create a new layer, and UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DRAW ON THE DEFAULT BACKGROUND LAYER. EVER.

Your faithful anonymous art student.


Well, I finally finished my first ever piece of digital fan art with my tablet!

The colours could have been a buck load better, but I forgot to do something very important, which as mentioned before, was to NOT draw on the default background layer. It was far too late by the time I had realised, so I just rolled with it, and it honestly did not turn out as bad as I thought it would. I think the last-minute shading I decided on saved it certain ugliness.

Overall very pleased with this :D
As for the mistake(s) I made, well they are to learn from.

You know, if it's meant to be fired by Earth Ponies, the scope should be in front of the eye when holding it in the mouth =p

Yeah, I couldn't work out for the life of me how a gun that can be shot efficiently with the mouth would look, so just a lazy guess hehe

Not bad at all! I'm also jealous that you're only at ch.14. I which it would had gone on longer. ;n; Side fics still the hunger but without Littlepip is not really the same.

I have mad respect for anyone willing to read FO:E after its already been finished. Definitely worth the read, but very intimidating (it's longer than the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy).
