Clearing the Sky by SmellsLikeBeer Clearing the Sky by SmellsLikeBeer
Okay, we're getting a little sidetracked here. Not the usual black&white gloomy atmosphere. I don't know what to call it, since it's mostly paint, but I used nibs, so it's like a drawing. So is it a drawing or a painting? Something to think about for tonight.

So it's a commission. Rainbow Dash trying to teach Fluttershy and Pinkie to clear the sky.

Cross-hatching with watercolors is pain in the ass.

I edited this a little. Now Pinkie's and Fluttershy's cutie marks are colored.

Hm, I somehow cannot find your signature. Is it because of commission?

(Actually I signed it, but the paper wasn't straight when I scanned it[that's why the horizon line also looks a bit oblique], and I was too tired to start all that resetting and all, so I simply just cropped the picture. You can see some black dots in the lower right corner. That's my signature : D )

Ah, I see it now. I didn't notice oblique horizon line until you mentioned it (:

Nice, very nice, the wings still look kinda odd, but the rest is simply beautiful.

I don't think earth ponies can move clouds. Can they? :/

There's a bit of a weird perspective here. The cloud Fluttershy is poking just seems to be very far in the distance and it looks like she's a giant or is pointing at it from afar. Otherwise the whole thing looks great! You have really good hatching skills!

A drainting? A prawing? I don't think it matters much.

The cross-hatching is very awesome, I love your style, and their expressions are adorable! As much as I love your harsher pieces, it's good to see you draw something happy for a change. I hope life is treating you better.

I know this isn't in continuity with your previous black-and-white "ponies in our world" series, but seeing this still gives me an uplifting feeling, no pun intended. It makes me feel like these three, and the others wherever they are, are slowly bringing life back to a dead world.

If I can offer one critique, though: The wings seem a bit overly detailed next to everything else in the picture. That's my only gripe. Great job, otherwise. :)

Pinkie found a glitch.
It really looks nice!

I like the lively colors and your style of the ponies.
