Mirror Pond by Huussii Mirror Pond by Huussii
"Oooh~!"

--
TIME LAPSE: [link]

Original time 5h 42min (excluding sketching and last minute tweaks)


Oh rocks. I love painting rocks.
My interpretation of mirror pond. This was something a tad more experimental once again.

Okay, you can definitely see me being tired during this one. There are quite a few things which wont align with the horizon

Well, this is just Magical! First of all I'm amazed how You made Pinkie. Her face looks so enchanted by the pond and hel nuzzle makes an impression, that she is actually saying "Uuuu! Magic mirror lake!". Than there is absolutely stunning background. I would call this a friendly darkness. It reminds me of some of locations in the game and concept arts of The Elders Scrolls III: Morrowind. At first I thought there is one thing that is missing. Big glowing mushrooms. But on second thought it came to me, that underground, moist caves almost always has big glowing mushrooms in fantasy so it become too common thing. You made a good decision (in my opinion) with making them normal size. All in all I would say that this is one of the best of Your pictures. I have so much respect for those countless hours You spent to learn to do, what You are doing. And You are creating magic!

Why do I get a "Crystal Caves of Ilum" feeling?

When i saw it first i thought yee it's nice but not in my style.
But then i saw time lapse. You'r freaking amazing. 
This cave, this lighting, these details.
I can't imagine how hard it is cause I'm not an artist but I used to use PS for some basic things.

Somehow, this portrays the buildup we felt to the moment when she used the pond in the episode.

You do such astonishing work.
I love how you've caught how magical the Mirror Pool grotto looks and yet retained a sense of plausible form with the 'organic' look.

Gotta love Pinkie's expression too.

Makes me want to commission you for a story I'm working on with a friend.  Ah well.

Please keep up the good work.

When I clicked on this I was wondering if it was a man or a woman or something, and when it loaded my heart stopped as I realised that it's Pinkie. :D I was in a bad mood as well, and Pinkie cheered me up! <3

Wonderful cave, yup the magic pond where you can clone yourself which is crazy, nobody wants to have a clone going on a loose cannon and making yourself to be blame by people. XD


Poor Pinkie, at least they got the real Pinkie in the end of the show! XD
