"...You will be."

A semi-quick, rather experimental piece.

I often tend to struggle with very sharp and "perfect" shapes, like crystals or modern buildings, one or two is still no problem to figure out but painting a whole bunch of them in considerable amount of time seems to be something I cannot wrap my head around. Decided to try this scene out.

Left it quite rough as I mainly wanted to play with the overall idea more. Lighting ended up being a bit all over the place, but does the job for now I guess.

Crystal Cave, I like crystals, it just amazes how they take those shapes and never been cut into those shapes. This really captures that scene from the show when Queen Chrysalis traps Twilight.

this is gorgeous . I have had it set as my desktop background for a while now and I decided to find out where it came from and give thanks to the artist.

... okay, you're my favorite thing on the internet right now, and you are amazing
Is there a way I can get a "portrait version" of this?

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you. 9 donw

I don't think I remember Twilight telling me about a place like that. Was she trapped in there?

I love the environments you do!
ponykenso Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i understand what you mean, "modern" is so hard to do when i already have missing hand muscles, sharp consistent perspective is a pain among several asses mine and yours alike, and regardless how you think it turned out its great, you have to remember that these are crystals, the reflect or refract light, generally unpredictably, so you did great with what you had to work with

Would you mind terribly if I used this as cover art for a fanfiction?
Iguanodragon Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Student General Artist
I thoroughly enjoy all of your works. the style and the way you weave the environments into everything creates a strong impact.
The expressions of the characters themselves also add to the works.
Great job.
ZoriaNadorian Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
I think you nailed it with the crystals and their 'perfect' shapes. These look very natural, and not too sharp like most wind up with when drawing crystal type structures.

I like the look of curiosity in her expression.

Dutchcrafter Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012
Excellent lighting work. Also suprised that so much purple actually works. Altough the whole cave overall looks better then Twilight. But still a really impresive piece of art.

Awesome artwork!
