At The Gala

By Kishmond
:iconyouareplz::iconallowedplz:

It is finished!

If you can download a 7 MB file, view the full version.

Here's the big project I was working on, and probably the last thing I'll finish before I leave. Here's some numbers because numbers are fun.

Time taken: 75 hours and 13 minutes over 27 days
Size: 12000 by 6747 pixels, 7.24 MB lossless PNG
Number of layers: I had to split it into 2 PSDs due to the sheer amount on memory needed to work with them. The background has 129 layers while the castle has 249 layers. Total: 378 layers.

I'd like to thank :iconsirleandrea: and :iconivan-chan: for helping me with some of the ponies in the foreground, :iconmoongazeponies: for teaching me how to vector efficiently, and everyone at Hasbro for making a truly awesome show.

I guess that's it. Have a nice day. :D

Here's a more manageable 860KB wallpaper sized version:

.ai file with all the paths used: sta.sh/0czxqvwvpa7
.psd of just the castle: sta.sh/01x40x9hvgcm
(The .psd of the background is too big!)

I used this in my animation: [link]
You're listed in the end credits.
If it wasn't for you, it would probably take me more to make this single background than the entire video O_o
Thanks a lot, you really saved my deadline-threatened hide!

Since you don't seem terribly against people using this magnificent piece of artwork (so long as credit is given) I have used it as a background for a piece of cover-art that I drew. Thank you for making such a great resource available! Picture can be found here:

If you have any issues with its use, please let me know!
