Can't Sleep by SmellsLikeBeer Can't Sleep by SmellsLikeBeer
I started this in the car, I think about one and a half weeks ago. I found some crappy boards and other junk and built a desk in the backseat. It was really fragile and hell it hurt when it collapsed on me few times. But it was better than nothing I guess. Then I got sick and I couldn't continue. Finished it this morning.

It's the second last drawing of the series without a name, the "ponies in our world thing" You can probably guess where I got the inspiration for this one.

It's the usual size, A5, and it's done with ink and nibs. No watercolors this time, I think I've lost them. It'll be the only black & white one in the series. (If I don't bother to buy new watercolors and paint it later, that is.)

The fourth part of the series of mane six in our empty world. Links to the other parts:

I really like this series of pictures but the one complaint I have is the fact this one has no color. In the other pictures the color really separated the characters from their grey surroundings. With that said though this is an awesome picture.

Nice detail on the newspaper:

I awoke, only to find my lungs empty
and through the night, so it seems I'm not breathing
and now my dreams are nothing like they were meant to be
and I'm breaking down
I think I'm breaking down

Are humans still alive in this world or are they dead?

You better keep changing your current place of residence Miss Sparkle if you are going to be stuck in this world. You may find either a very hungry vagabond or one with a weird fetish.

"You can probably guess where I got the inspiration for this one."

One of the many My Little Dashie spinoffs? Or something in Conversion Bureau? It looks like it could be interpreted either way.

My car? Doesn't actually look like that : D Well let's just say it's old, I don't remember if it was from 80's or early 90's. I'm not into cars really (:

Your crosshatching always drives me crazy. It's so good. Beautiful picture.

Also, don't be an idiot; you are NOT useless. I hope you wrote that out of sarcasm.

And it wasn't sarcasm. It wasn't the best day when I started to draw this. And I just decided to not to change it afterwards

wow.... just ... WOW.
You know, in Medicine or Mathematics, where convention is absolutely crucial, such nitpicking could be warranted. But, in the "field" of art, correct usage of the pencil, brush, ink, colors, etc. the movement is not only inconsequential. and this piece is a perfect example of your talent. So, what I'm trying to say is amazing work.

Whatever else will happen, this week is officially is a good week!

A5? All your drawings are made in A5?! o__O That's simply glorious!

P.S. McStalins insists, "SmellsLikeBeer admits wrong".

Yeah, most of my drawings are in A5, except the comics, which are A4 (:
And yeah, it wasn't the best day when I was admitting (:

Nice to see something from you again. In a world like this it is always regrettable if talent, being a quite rare occurrence, goes to waste.
And, of course, nice to hear that things have gotten better for you, although my words probably don't mean very much to you as i am just a nameless somepony who happened to be receiving your public messages.^^
