~About time she gets her gown wet.

---

I had decided to picked up Tyler Edlin's tutorial over at gumroad.com/tyleredlinart to learn more painting and concept techniques. If the landscape looks slightly familiar, that's because it is. Part of his detailing method was something I always wanted to implement in my own work, but I did not know how to get to that stage. So, long story short, I watched all his videos, painted alongside while its playing (I learnt tons! Value, composition, etc.), and unnecessarily added something.

11/10 will buy more from him.

Edit: Just adjusted the contrast slightly. Taken comments into account and had made some small changes.

I don't usually care much for wintry scenes when it comes to art, but this one with Rarity is really quite nice. :)

This is simply beautiful. The landscape fit perfectly with using Princess (Rarity) Platinum as the star pony. Well done!

What is she smiling for? I would think she would be whining for Clover to carry her. :)

Lovely background.

It's very nice; helps alleviate the heat intolerance I'm suffering through right now.

Would you recommend the tutorial? :?

I can see imagine. We have a problem with haze caused by neighbouring countries once in a while here. It sorta amplifies the heat we experience all year round, especially during dry season. 

Oh, and definitely. He gives quite a lot to get you started.
