~forget about the sunshine when it's gone.

Sorry about the lack of uploads these past few weeks. It was a crazy month on studying, presentation and assignments.

Well, another sunset. Getting back to the mood of paintings. Still trying to get the hang of lighting and colour.

Also, I just got a new monitor and had to re-calibrate a lot of settings. So I'm not exactly sure if it's accurate or not.

It's a beautiful painting, and could not have improved any more beyond its current condition. But I guess that is not a proper response to a critique request.

The sky looks a bit...dry. Somehow, even with the awesome clouds, it lacks a bit of 'gloss' an actual sunset has, in an innate sense that the transition from sun to dawn is more fluid and smooth. But it's a nice, stern effect, and I would not suggest changing it.

The trees are shaded in some odd places where the light doesn't go all the way, but perhaps it's because they're trees.

All in all, it looks magnificent. Possibly even more so with a Fluttershy in the foreground. Keep it up! :)

I'm sure this really is art, the detail in the landscape is almost excelent but i think it can become better if clouds does have more bright, i need to admit but the picture is a little bit opaque but really that thigs are nothing because is very hard to see something wrong in this piece of art.

Changing the matter emotionally i must say this one is very soothing, better than the back ground we usually see in the tv series, i think is better to use these style. I really love the power of nature and i can keep gazing at the sunset without blink for minutes.

Is better to sleep outside with the sound of silence but that is not posible in the real world......for now.....

"Still trying to get the hang of lighting and colour."
I think most of :iconcosmicunicorn:'s critique on [link] applies. For example make more darks.
I made a crappy paintover with mouse and DA muro to show you how it will look with darker darks: [link] :blushes:

This is just beautiful, and I love how it's painted primarily with shades of pink and yellow, matching Fluttershy's own color scheme.

Hrmmmm........:sherlock: The river looks iffy to my eyes. But that could be just me.... Maybe the river could be a little bit skinnier in the far distance?

The sky is amazing by the by!!!!! :happybounce:
