Like Flying in the Sea by atomic-kitten10 Like Flying in the Sea by atomic-kitten10
VERY rough sketch of Aquafina I did today while at my dad's doctor's appointment. I'll replace it with the completed version soon :3

Color, shaded, background'd and everything! Holy crap this took forever and my poor computer sounds like it's about to die if I even open another tab! Okay, this is probably my favorite pony picture to date because of the detail I put into it (lawlz i added so much) and it's just so pretty to look at ;w; First time ever doing an underwater scene so, critique on the effects? 8D

Aquafina and art me = *atomic-kitten10

Sketch done on Autodesk's SketchBook Express on the iPad 2 with a Belkin stylus.
Completed piece done on Photoshop CS5 with Wacom Intuos3 tablet.
Estimated time spent: 3hr 30min

WOW! that looks awesome! good job. sadly though, I can't add this to my favorites because it doesn't really look like the kind of thing I would love to see again. But still, you did great work.

*Reads old comment* wtf did i just type?

anyway, its because of the picture's atmosphere. Although the pony seems very well drawn, the effects in the picture are dull. Its just light. And water. I know you worked hard on this, but more effects would make it better.

To be honest, I was afraid I would overdo it with too many effects so I dialed it down from my original idea ^^; I was going to include reefs, plant and animal life, maybe some underwater "mountains", but I thought it would draw the attention away from the pony, especially if I did them horribly. Hell I even thought the bubbles would be too much! I'm very wary when it comes to adding detail and backgrounds because of the fear of it being called "tacky" or "cluttered".

I might give it a try, see how it would've looked if I were to make it look more like she were in the ocean rather than just in a pool or something XD
