The Moment Before the Rain by SmellsLikeBeer The Moment Before the Rain by SmellsLikeBeer
My browser crashed every time I tried to upload this in a bit larger file. wasn't even that big file. But anyway, I'll try to resubmit this in better quality later if this doesn't look so good.

Spent a bit too much time with this I guess. I prefer working quite fast. And this was supposed to be something fast before I start the next series of drawings, but it turned out to be really slow process. Have to say, I'm quite disappointed in the outcome considering the time I used in it. I don't mean that I don't like it myself, but I could have done a better job in less time.

Don't know what to say about the work itself. It's the same old concept. This time Apple Bloom. Indian ink, nibs, cross-hatching, this time on A4.

The less detail you put into the building as it moves away from you, the taller it will appear. Same with the clouds. "Abbreviate" the line work in the distant parts of the scene.

Things that are closer have more detail than things that are further away.

I must say it's sometimes a bit hard to find appealing pony art done using traditional methods, but all of your works are quite incredible. You can sense an amazing amount of feeling coming out of what you make. I'm officially impressed, in both the emotional and technical elements found in your art. I know the creator is always more critical of his works than his viewers, but believe me when I say this is inspiring in many ways.

I love it, especially the perspective!
Some things take more time than expected but the result seems really good to me :)
Can't wait to see this new series of drawings you're talking about!

Thanks (:
I would so like to finish the first piece of the series before the third season. You know, before everybody gets crazy on the new episode. But I fear I'm running out of time : D We'll see (:

dear god's you did a quiet picture here with this smashing perspective, but my comments are getting old I must find a new way to give my compliments.
I must say:
We are amidst strange beings, in a strange land.
The flow of time itself is convoluted; with heroes centuries old phasing in and out.
The very fabric wavers, and relations shift and obscure.
There's no telling how much longer your world and mine will remain in contact.
Of course, we are not the only ones engaged in this.
