Closer Than Far

Aww gabby was a pinkie of A griffin very likeable and pretty good CMC episode.  

For this weeks episode art I kept the image content pretty simple just so I could explore the fake screenshot style some more as its becoming a defining feature of my gallery.  

Essentially I am trying to find a balance of creating a screenshot style that blends classic 2d animation with the FIM character designs. this is also in a way me responding to the excitement of the upcoming movie in 2017. Which I am sure will still be animated amazingly in flash. have to wait and see :)

Until next deviation LATERS Bronies Peace

Yet again, a lovely take on a moderately familiar subject!
I don't know why, but this pic reminds me of the movie "Stand by me". The only thing missing are the rails of a train track.

Gabby is a surprisingly cute and likeable griffin.

I adored Gabby. She was one of my fave new characters of S6 easily. It was like an even perkier version of pinkie pie ^^

Wow, this is great!

The colors and shading do come very nicely. Gabby makes for a great contrast towards the CMCs pastel tones. She is clearly the center of the image, as everything points towards her: The CMCs looks, the mountain slopes in the background and even the lines of action in Scootalos and Apple Blooms postures.
The background is impressive: high level of detail, great colors and massive mountains that look absolutely convincing. Could be somewhere in the Rockies. The CMC harmonise with the background in color, yet clearly stand apart from it due to the different art style (sharp contours on a soft oil painting background).
But the best part are the postures. Dynamic and fluid, they almost look like they were taken straight out of a classic disney movie. Especially Gabby with her whoopy tail reminds me of The Lion King .

I really hate to say this, but.. your other art style would have been so beautiful here. :sad:
