Pinkie's Dreamland by JustDayside Pinkie's Dreamland by JustDayside
So I wanted to finally venture in to making a full scene as opposed to just drawin' a character in the middle of space! I thought it'd be no problem.

Hrrk.

Hahah, this has taken me so long, but I do really like how it came out. I learned a ton doing this, probably more what-not-to-dos, but that's still knowledge in my book. I was gonna color it at first, but I love how the grayscale looks.

Anyhow, on to other things! :D

Also, I only explicitly say this on certain occasions, but I'm aaaalways open fer critiques, an' don't pull any punches. I'm not the type ta get flustered over other peoples' opinions -- but I'll definitely take 'em ta heart. XD

Why does this feel like it'd make a mean video game to play? I'd buy it...

Love the atmosphere in this. The episode where Pinkie Pie goes crazy is probably one of my favorites.

This is really amazing normal Pinkie look's just a tad to block-ish maybe soften her arm line a bit her eyes maybe just a tad more of a light grey on the underline but other than that simply amazing!

Glad ya like it! Hahah, I kinda like the blockiness, can't really say why, hahah. I'unno, it's been too long since I've made this, hahah, don't really know what I was thinkin' at the time. XD

Thanks again! :D

I just really like everything in this picture. The greyscale is very good looking, and builds a lot on the mood of the picture

The silhouettes of the trees in the background really makes this image for me. It gives much more depth than just a black shadow would.

I...need to ponify some songs... "Something's wrong with Twi, somethings wrong with Twi"

...You know, Twilight Sparkle works so perfectly for that scene. Especially with her mad science lab in the library basement...which came from nowhere and returned there..

o: If your objective was for a creepy atmosphere, I'd say you succeeded well. I know if I were Pinkie, I wouldn't be able to sleep for weeks. xD It's very Alice in Wonderland-ish and I like that the trees have faces, just like in "Giggle at the Ghostly" :)
The perspective we have on Pinkie Pie is a nice detail, too. :-D

Ooh, I like this B&W painting. For me, it's just way more fun than coloring when I want those heavy contrasts.

I'd like to take your invitation and make a short critque, so here goes.

You obvisouly have a good handle on contrast & how light diminishes, but you need to pay attention to rays & projections more carefully. It appears that this scene is being lit with overhead spotlights, like in theatre, which is fine. But some of the ground shadows are going the wrong way, specifically those cast by the two tree creatures and the cowering pony. From looking at the characters, that light source is just above and in front of the medusa head, not behind it as the ground shadows imply.
Other than that, I would have added a blurry projection of a mouth on the ground in front of that jack-o-lantern tree at the right. That would increase your awesomeness level by a factor of 1.5!

Thanks! An' glad ya like it.

I agree with all counts of yer critique, hahah, the only problem I ran into is that I ever even sketched the shadows in coming towards Pinkie like that, and I really feel like it helps frame Pinkie Pie dramatically in the painting. The whole time I was working though, I was tryin' ta think of how I could put a light there that would make sense, buuut I never did, hah. An' had I payed more close attention to lighting, the projected mouth would have been awesome. XD

Thanks so much! :D

But maybe I'll take a look. X3 Thanks fer checkin' out my piece! :D

The author insisted that, while dark, it is not exactly grimdark save for a few stories. He knows the entire MLP lore very well and the stories remain true to the themes and characterizations of the show.
