A Kirin Gala(EqCN 2019 New Year Banner) by LA-ndy A Kirin Gala(EqCN 2019 New Year Banner) by LA-ndy
The fourth Chinese new year banner I did for EquestriaCN ten days ago.
In China, there is a grand and huge party which is hold every year at the time of Chinese new year, named Spring Festival Gala as well known, which is where I found the inspiration.

So I made this scene, a bustle and maybe noisy place where ponies and kirins gather around. They watched shows performed by talanted individuals and had a meal with each other in front of the stage while chatting about the shows, foods and so on, just like the old time when Chinese celebrated the new year.
Due to my time arrangement, I had to finish this quickly in nearly a week. So before I start, I took some time to make the composition design. In addition to the basic perspective, there are some extra works I did for characters.

You may have seen the Pinkie holiday suit design on my Twitter. Honestly that's an imprompt thinking, a sudden idea. But somehow it suits the ideal atmosphere of the scene. So I kept it and made it a main part of the composition. And also you could see a suit design for Autum Blaze on my Twitter too. It should be used in this piece, but for time reasons I had to remove it.

From my view, this piece isn't perfect so I didn't feature it. First, I gave myself too many challenges while painting this. I might overestimated my abilities to handle all these new stuff, such as relatively big scene, relatively strong light sources , multi-characters and so on. Second, I got time limitation on this work, which made me nervous at some levels. There are several rough-made parts in this. They exposed my lack of skills completely.

Though it wasn't perfect, it was truly a challenge that I have finished. Hope you enjoy!
It's not the holiday time for now but still, Happy new year!

P.s. here is the new year banner I did in 2018 for EqCN, just in case if you want to recall. ;)

I want this is the show. Not for this holiday (since it's not a pony one, but maybe a kirin one, so maybe) but at least one, ONE single episode. That would be amazing.

Despite your said lack of skills, this piece looks awesome.

yup obviously. From my view, the right side of the pic is more detailed. The left side is also detailed but not as much as right side. You know there is a gap between the extents of details and this gap makes a feeling of losing composition balance. Honestly, I was strugling with this kind of "gap" all the time.

Well the right part contains more characters hence need more detailing that the left with the scene

I SO love this scene <3 <3 The mane 6 and Spike spending the night at the kirins' village... <3 And I so love how you've put Pinkie, my favorite pony, with that brown kirin who I love so much!! She left a big impression on me in the episode, and to have her at the same table as Pinkie, aaaaah <3 Wonderful <3 Really loving what you did, amazing work :D
