Light by aJVL Light by aJVL
~ everything that light touches.

Requested by: :iconkeinzantezuken:



Another Celestia piece. I wanna try something a little different, something I seldom draw; and that's trees and rocks.

I went through quite a significant numbers of ImagineFX magazines during my break time between lectures for all the tress references and the colours used, and sketched a number from real life on my sketchbook.
Turns out, trees and rocks are just as much fun as to paint as clouds. yay!

Welp, exams in two weeks time and I'm also currently helping one of my buddy on some sprite art for a MLP game he's making. Wow... tight time schedule.

Beautiful! Great job on the rocks and trees, and I love the painted look of Celestia - her mane and tail look amazing, too!

I love this, like all of your work I've seen so far, but is it just me or does 'Tia look almost angry?

The way you draw your backgrounds reminds me of the classic Disney movies. Your work is fantastically beautiful!

I really like the lighting in this. The way you made Celestia just seems so... PERFECT. I don't know how else to describe it, she looks fluid and soft. It's really, really good.

The way you do hair gives me boners.

Celestia is such a pretty pony, and somehow, the disheveled hair makes her look even better.

Haven't see this done before. Teen Celesetia. Defanatelly something for the books in the brony community thats for sure. Very good coloring as well. I still can't get over how well your able to do this. I think that you'd make a good IRL artist if you started doing portrats and landscapes.

Still need to practice how to actually render those. I could only block the shape and values out for now.

Lovely piece, excellent detail to the trees, rocks, Celestia as always (Dat Mane). But why do i get the feeling that the backdrop is telling more of a story than Celestia here?
Reply
:iconajvl:
aJVL Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012
That's what the background is for sometime :D

Otherwise, it's just Celestia and makes the whole picture boring.

LordVurtax Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ehh, then maybe I'm wrong in assuming the characters should always tell more of the story.

Now that I think about it, yeah, setting that as standard is really dumb.
