this is amazing

A great snapshot containing the feel of the situation very well. You can feel something is coming, and the dark taint to the power of the amulet.

Unlike Trixie here I think Garble can change his ways

Very dark! In a good way.

That is downright spooky! Very well done!
JPthemarine Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013
Your art work on the mlp concepts is amazing, but I must ask what medium do you use?
I guess oil pastels.
Huussii Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Digital, everything in my gallery is done in Photoshop apart from the traditional pencilworks of course.

However I do oil paint stuff a bit every now and then, I haven't uploaded any of them though.
JPthemarine Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
I see, nah I just thought it was oil paint but none the lest your artwork is something to look forward to.

You made a great and awesome drawing about Trixie.

I like the details (lot of them) you put in it and I'm not talking about the wonderful background you did for this piece. It shows that you took time (and a couple of pauses so your wrist take a break) and put lot of love in your work.

Awesome work.

I'd run from that Trixie...

This is just fantastic! You've got value, texture, lighting, that soft red glow in Trixie's eyes; this whole piece is incredibly well done!

Darn, that's creepy awesome. The frazzled rough texture of her mane and her cape combined with the baleful red light of the amulet and the eyes and that murderous grin make for a strong impression. The leaves and dust her running raises are a great touch, and the background is just majestic with all its details, from the town and its lights to the countless blades and stalks of grass to the beautiful trees with their leaves to the amazing sky. Darn, this is made of awesome.

q97randomguy Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
I don't usually like Trixie... but this is just beautiful, amazing, stunning work. Those eyes, that background, the leaves in the trees, all are superb. This is why I can't wait to see more from you.

AMAZING PICTURE! wow! this is VERY GOOD! ~claps~
GremlinGrenade Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
Very nice, as always! Has a sort of Halloween (er, I mean Nightmare Night) feel to it.

It also reminds me why I brought you on as an environment artist. While Trixie herself is beautiful here, no doubt, there's so much going on I can't help but trace my eyes all over. Details like the lights in the town, the leaves blowing in the wind, or even how you got the moon to glow like that, are so atmospheric that they really make the picture for me.

Keep up the good work! ^_^

you cant tell from here, but I am crying right now. I want to love art like you. But I just don't. your love for it really shows in this image. so much hard work paying off.
there should be a word made for the feeling of wanting to do something that you don't love enough to do. Because that is what I feel when I see this artwork. I want to draw amazing things like this, but I just don't have the love for the art to put the necessary time into it that is required to get as good as you.

You know, I've gone through stages like that for so many times, and still struggle to motivate myself occasionally. I could be so much more if I just had the motivation. I use so much time just procrastinating because I don't feel like painting anything even though I want and should. Even though I know I like to paint once I get into it, I have difficulties getting myself motivated to start a piece.

One could say I'm always addicted to the thought of painting, but often not the act of painting itself.

BUT the addiction to thought of painting is a big reason I've still got this far, why? Luckily there's so much learning you can do without actually painting anything. Of course you have to paint every now and then to keep your hand in touch, but in the end it's just as important to know what you're painting and how it should look like. When I'm outside having a walk, I constantly observe the world around me and see how things look like in real life so I know how to paint them. I also still spend just a couple of hours a week into browsing and analyzing photography, speedpaintings/tutorials and artwork of others, internet is full of material.
This way I can learn a lot without actually painting or drawing, it's like practicing with your mind alone. The fact you know and visualize you've learned something new, motivates to go back into painting stuff. When you're a beginner, you should especially watch a lot of tutorials (Youtube, deviantart,, etcetc) so the thought of starting to paint is less intimidating, and becomes even tempting.

Apart from this visual learning, the number one motivator for me is seeing stuff done by better artists. I pump myself up with the thought "I want to be better, I want to become an acknowledged artist. This is a path I've chosen, and I want to continue it.". One limitless motivator like this is good ol' Bob Ross, I have all his seasons and I occasionally watch or simply listen to them, he's a man who loved art so much it outright radiates into you. You could say I admire and feed off the motivation and enthusiasm of others.

Once I get myself to paint, I once again realize how fun it is.

A brilliant digital artist Noah Bradley once said in his Youtube tutorial "At the end of the day, if you don't love what you're doing, you're probably not going to do a very good job at it.". This quote influences me again and again. It makes me realize I have to find the enjoyment, yet not force myself too much if I want to become something I've always wanted to become.

If you have even the slightest interest to learn, I'm sure you'll find the joy of painting eventually. It's like a cutie mark, don't try to search too desperately for it, it will suddenly come when the time is right. At least that was the case with me! About one and a half years ago I wasn't interested at art much at all, but then I came across magnificent artwork of a pony artist called Moe. Seeing his works wholly ignited the interest in me and suddenly I was bursting with enthusiasm for something I previously could not find any interest to do myself.

Don't get depressed by above-average works of others, you should be happy since you know you have so much room to advance and become like the artists you admire.

Well that sure became a messy wall of text.. I'm bad at conveying thoughts. Motivation and love for painting is something I think a lot myself.

lemmy write all this down.
Got to check out
Look up Bob Ross on google.
Look up Noah Bradley on youtube and other places.
Get a knew tablet.
Get a better computer.
Draw stuff traditionally until I get said computer and tablet.

Ok thanks for the homework and motivational speech :D

The dark atmosphere is impressive, with tasteful colors on Trixie. The landscape is an interesting take on Equestria.

I may have made her a face slightly rounder.

Wow, that's one epic picture!
