COMMISSIONED BY ~Drakmire
FANFIC: Lacuna - [link]
I've included a good amount of certain symbolism which you can understand more if you read the fic. Four places in the background are all more or less major points of interest, mid one being good ol' Canterlot.
And before anyone of you asks about pony on the left, her name is Sand Shaper.
Well, largest scale work I've done this far, and it did stumble quite a few times on itself. My totally chaotic work progress isn't really suited for pictures like this where we have alot of things going on. But yeah, I can only blame myself as commission was pretty freeform one up for me to design from the fic.
I originally intended to just take a quick peek at his fic to get some idea but damn, I ended up seeing how well written it is in many ways, not flawless but really good. Plot wasn't too hurried and narrating was really smooth. I couldn't help going five chapters in a day. Turns into a real page-turner once you've dwell into first few chapters and got the plot properly running.
Bot then some technical notes. I.. Just suck at drawing ponies from front. I tried to get Luna's muzzle into shape but I just couldn't really figure it all through well enough.
The picture took damn much time to get balanced out to work well and not look too messy. I really had to try going beyond my skill to make this happen.
Not that I had trouble with the actual background, but multiple characters like here tend to give me that sweeping kick in the face, especially when I have no clue where I actually want the light to come and where it is supposed to come.
My vision is clouded for now. I need to rest the night before taking further judging myself..
Edit: Oh lawd, took me five days to realize I forgot her crown. So that's the thing which really bothered me all along
