To the end by PrincessSaros To the end by PrincessSaros
Well.. this has been a long, long, strange trip. I haven't been online much and I'm glad to be back, a bit. Kinda... sorta.

This is a piece I'll be using for my fimfic that I'll probably never finish. But I'm going slowly. Too many things happening at once just makes everything slower.

I am having difficulty finding the words to describe just how much I love this picture.
One of the best pieces I've ever seen.

This is a really gorgeous illustration. But shouldn't Celestia's horn be glowing if the sun is setting? :)

Actually, you've stumbled onto a very interesting quirk I thought someone might talk about. In this particular story I had in my mind, Luna is having princess duty today. Celestia has a day off with Twilight (Hence, no crown!)

Dude, this is rad.

You've posed them beautifully together; the wings and their heads leaning together are just the right details.

You've improved so much! I'm impressed. 
That sky is so lovely, it works because you kept it simple. The sun reflecting on the river is wonderful. 
The colors feel good. 


My only suggestions, would be to reintroduce a little bit of the warm glow in the sky to the light on the pony figures (like you have on that foreground mist), to unify the painting overall and to pull your eye to them.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate the comment!

It took me so long and so much self-control to actually finish this, but eventually I got there! I must have redone this piece at least two or three times midway through just to get the perspective that I wanted. The only thing I really need to get used to now is how to pick up my pace a bit.

As for the warm glow, I completely agree with you there. I noticed that after I had posted it, but at the time I was just so emotionally exhausted with it, I didn't bother updating it. I think once I'm done with my next piece I'll start going back and adding touch-ups (or completely redoing old work concepts just to get a better feel of things)

Thanks again for the compliment!~

The depth of this image is incredible, as is the colour palette. That horizon seems to be hundreds of miles away and the whole picture says 'weary travellers'. Beautiful.

The colour choices I'm very happy with, however I think I might revisit the atmosphere at some point. There were a few things I wanted to do and add that I just didn't have the energy to do anymore. Had I continued with the small things, I'd still be busy for another week.

I think I will revisit it, along with a few other pieces in my gallery some day!

Well, only the artist himself knows what he envisioned when setting out on a project... so obviously you'll be your own harshest critic.
Of course, feel free to improve on your already magnificent work.
In the meantime I'll be content with marvelling at your gallery as it is. :)

Could you point me to the fanfic this belongs to, or is it not released yet?

The fanfic itself is a very -very- far from done chapter sitting in my Dropbox account at the moment. I'm working on pretty much everything else, including IRL work, before I start on that again as it literally drains the life out of me.

I'll do my best to get to it one of these days, but I wouldn't wait around for it!

Wow, this is really beautiful, I must really tip my hat off to you.
But I do have a question.
I'm curious, is the fimfic going to end with the end of the world? I'm not really a fan of those stories.

Thanks! My focus wasn't really the landscape this time, although I did spend more time on it than the characters, but I guess it was the characters I had more vividly placed in my head!

I find it incredible how you conveyed the sense of scale and most of all, how obvious it is that it's a huge distance. It's perfect. I'm so envious...  and sad. This drawing saddens me. :(

I don't know! I want to say bad sad, because it's not a scenario I like to think about. But it's a beautiful piece (and I think I can learn from it), which is a good thing.

Maybe all of those sads. :(
