"Maybe one day.. everyone can appreciate what I work so hard for.
A beautiful midnight, that lets the young fillies sleep.
Counting twinkling stars within the glittering skies."

Sometimes what we work hard for is not always appreciated.

to the art part! c:
well.... this was suppose to a be a quick doodle... not anymore
most of the body lines are still pretty bad and the wings look really off but it only took 2 hours and a half... or somewhere around that XD
I was looking at my oc picture and I decided to draw her in the same scenery! c:

I have to say that this is perhaps one of the most wonderfully crafted pieces of pony art that I have seen thus far. I love the texture on the wings, as well as the shading of this. The style that you chose to use is also very lovely and provokes many emotions. Using the moon as a light source gives so much life to this, as well as the facial expression and tears falling into the pond. The clouds are very ominous but subtly calming as well. I really enjoyed everything about this piece and believe that it is extremely original. Great work, and i would very much love to see more. Kind regards, Princess Luna

The Artist thought this was FAIR
34 out of 34 deviants thought this was fair.

First of all, your technique and attention to detail is excellent. The highlights definitely show the focal points. The attention to detail on the wings is amazing. Another thing that I would like to applaud you on is the level of definition on the helmet, boots, and the crystals. I like the way that you don't blend everything completely and leave some highlights sharp and bold. The one thing I would work on is more attention to the moon because it stands out as less detailed. I love your style and enjoy looking at your art. Continue the good work!

This is beautiful. My only nitpick is that the feathers on the wings look too detailed in comparison to the rest of the pony, which is very smooth and almost glass-like.

Someone used this drawing as their deviant ID and icon, I don't know if you have an issue with that or what but I thought that I should just let you know.
