Good evening, my dears!
Yes it is that time again, when I have new artwork to share with you all, and so soon after my latest post for a pleasant change! Up this time is of course another commissioned work, this time for AtomicGreymon, who was looking for a Tron-pony crossover featuring Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash. He had some very specific factors in mind that he was hoping to see brought to life in large wallpaper-sized visual form, and I can only hope that I did his vision proper justice here (EDIT: It's come to my attention that Blogger has automatically resized the picture as apparently it's too large, but if anyone is interested the full-size 2560x1600 pixel version of the painting is available for download at My Little Wallpaper. Many thanks, SharkMachine~! <3).
I'll be the first person to admit that I had certain difficulties with this piece. The first was merely finding the time to work on it given all of my other demands and projects (steampunk Rarity was also quite time-consuming as I have said), as well as just the subject matter itself. I've said repeatedly that I don't consider myself to be especially skilled in rendering complicated inorganic objects such as building and vehicles, and this particular scene demanded just that in the form of the futuristic Tron city (which I do not know the name of if indeed it has one, as admittedly I have not seen the movie). And again, my client had many specific points I needed to take into consideration such as certain angles desired and things like that, so yes it was a worthy challenge to get to a finished product I felt 100% satisfied with.
Anyhow though, hopefully you all will enjoy it. ^.^ And as last time with steampunk Rarity, I'm happy to say that I have some concept art to share with you all in the form of suit designs and the like, so here they are! I really need to draw more Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash, and hopefully now that I'm nearly caught up with all of my commissions at last, I'll be able to do just that!
Well I do believe that is all for now. Expect one more commissioned piece again in the very near future (though admittedly, not one quite so involved as these last two), and after that hopefully some new personal artwork to follow! Until next time then, stay fabulous all. ^_~
