The Lonely Path by Huussii The Lonely Path by Huussii
Oil on board canvas
Size 46 x 38 cm / 18.1 x 15 inches

Yeah, my second pony oil painting, sold in the Crystal Fair along with the first one.

The idea has been with me forever, and it has been just a matter of time until I actually did it, originally it was supposed to be digital, but I decided to try and do it some justice with oils.

This already had so much better technique going than my last one. The lossy photo quality here doesn't really do enough justice to the brilliance of linseed oil, which I used to make the whole background sky and fog glaze behind the mostly matte environment. Almost entirely wet on wet technique, so much smoother than my first one, Home Sweet Home, which was mostly wet on dry.

I reeeeally should dabble with oils a lot more...

Horizon rising up to meet the purple dawn
Dust demon screaming, bring an eagle to lead me on
For in my heart I carry such a heavy load
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road

I'm hungry, weary, but I cannot lay me down
The rain comes, dreary, but there's no shelter I have found
It will be a long time till I find my abode
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road

Moon rising, disguising lonely streets in gay displays
The stars fade, the night shade falls and makes the world afraid
It waits in silence for the sky to explode
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road
Walking Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road ...

I walk a lonely road, the only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes, but it's home to me and I walk alone

would taking a picture with a camera yield the results you're looking for?....

i just realized something , trains can only go up like a 5% grade of track , it's not possible for a train from ponyvile to make it to canterlot all the friggen way up there , god danm.........

............why are you not the lead concept artist for shattered kingdoms?.......

I actually did take the picture with an good quality camera, it's just that the effects of linseed oil can't really be seen in a still picture anyway because it's essentially gloss that reflects light better. Colors and values are still pretty accurate even though I didn't manage to have a nice cloudy day for best lighting.

Aand uhh. I'm not the type of guy who could lead the artist branch, I just do the tasks. I don't even know how to approach the art of game development. SilFoe is way more experienced and fitting in that job and she does it well.

Huussii is the primary environment concept artist. Actually I think he has done ALL of the environment concepts and they are gorgeous. Unfortunately we didn't show much concept art during the panel, but they've been crucial in developing the aesthetic.

We're talking about Shattered Kingdom and Huussii's role on it is, correct? He does our environment concept art and some assets in game. 

I was on the panel yesterday. I don't know Ponyville Live's uploading schedule is, but the recording of it should be up online soon.

yup , it was him , ok never mind , but why was he reacting the way he did then saying he couldn't do work for such a project?....

and great , so when he says you would be more suited to do something like that , what he's saying is that you're already doing that something -.-'.....

ok , but where though? i only knew of this from another person on the team's blog post and it doesn't give that information , he said he would update it but again still haven't gotten a re.....

What he means is that he's the environment guy, but I'm the lead of the the art team. He the master of environments, particularly concepts, and I'm the Jack of all trades that manages all the other artists. I think there was a bit of confusion based on the word choices, maybe?

Sometimes a path of solitude can be the best remedy to correct your flaws. Like being a jackass who mocks ponies who for some reason pay her to do so. Hang on, does she get paid for her shows? I never saw anyone giving a single buck in order to watch her spectacle. Oh, I did it again. I´m bringing my stupidity to a pretty amazing picture. So... well done! :la:

Ugh, doesn't sound fun at all. :ohnoes: That's why I actually use this water-soluble oils that my teacher used in class (so he didn't have to teach us how to clean up brushes for half the year...) and they're very useful and much easier for cleanup.
