Old friends studying their old friends.

Thanks for everyone who took a peek around the stream. Now I can plan those out better in the future...

Sooo yeah. Probably my longest piece to date in terms of raw work time, days passed from start to finish, time spent being frustrated, whatnot. I started this one before I had even got out of the military. It ended up being a project that I just didn't get myself working on because I screwed up pretty early on and didn't plan it out well enough. On top of that it has so many details and things to paint. I occasionally just tried to get back to it but ended up just trying to fix the composition and layout, never being satisfied, thus closing it off again for a while until I come back to repeat the same mistake. Eventually it started to work out by itself when I just tried to care less about the issues and just continue painting it.

The idea originally came out from the fact I wanted to paint the Ursae because it's just funny how the series has forgotten about two freaking huge celestial bears living near Ponyville, even after all the stuff with Tirek and such. First it was just about Major, then I added minor, then I chose to add Twilight to give more story for the picture, and finally Trixie to make it all click into place. I intended to get this one done before the finale but that obviously didn't happen.

All in all. It has been one hell of a work, and my vision has gone so clouded with it that I can't tell whether I'm really satisfied or not in the end.

Hello. You're the artist? I'm looking for a few visual artists that might be interested in a project. See, I have a full length adventure book being published that's over 125,000 words, 45 chapters and 270 pages and I'm looking for artists that can create mane styles, props, cutie marks and props. If you're interested PM me. Or if any artists out there want to contribute, please message me. Thanks!

Trixie: THIS IS A URSA MAJOR!?
Twilight: Yes, as long we do nothing to make it angry, everything will be fine!
Trixie: He can eat us with one bite!
Twilight: Like i tell, as long we do nothing to scare or make them angry, everything will be fine, Ok?
Trixie: O..Ok!

This speaks to me on a spiritual level. Can't explain it, but I felt a flood of emotions when I saw this and just zoned out. Absolutely marvelous!

Life imitates art sometimes.  Reminds me of my struggles with planning etc.  The colors caught my attention enough to click on this and check it out more.  I really like the concept of what the constellations do when the sun sets!  I'm glad you pushed through and finished it!  Love it!
