After the Party... by Stinkehund After the Party... by Stinkehund
That's one of a series of images i'm doing for the guys over at mlponline: [link]

I think those are going to be loading images or something.. ah, who cares, it's ponies! :D

Worksteps (kinda) here: [link]

So basically, i made a little market-scene based on that lineart here: [link]
All vectors.. looooots of layers. Lot of work, too. Then i imported it in Photoshop at a ridiculous imagesize (like 15kx12k pixels), drew dark blue over everything and brushed away the areas where light should be. Rinse, repeat, with a couple of different colored layers on top. So, very simple work-principle... but damn it, it took forever!

And i still have daytime-versions to do! D:

Buuut to be fair, worktime here was 5 days on vector-stuff alone (and that's for the entire picture series, not just that night-shot) and like 1 day for finishing.
That's the amount of time i actually worked on it, of course. All in all, that thing took almost a month to complete. Still, i don't think that's too shabby when you take in account that i'm pretty much teaching myself all the lighting-stuff while i work.

... ah, you know. Bla bla bla, cutie marks, bla bla.

Waaaaa, AMAZING!! Berry Punch and Pinkie together at nighttime after a party, this is so epic! I don't know why but I love the theme of party-ing a lot ^^ (I don't even use to party in real life, lol)
Thanks a lot for this, it's in my top favorite MLP artwork ever! :)

Why would Pinkie be drunk/wasted? What about Return of Harmony Part 2, where she was being pulled along in the cart, giggling about being gray? I don't think she was drunk then.

Clearly, Pinkie's had too much to drink and that's why Twilight is the designated driver.

In that case, everything I said... just with Berry Punch as the designated driver.

It's because the piece is a bit dark and he's hard to make out as anything other than a shadow. I have to look at the picture from a different angle in order to make out his traits.

Actually, if that is the case, your monitor is probably a bit too dark. Or at least the gamma-setting is too low.

Yeah sorry, i had to keep the proportions of the sketch it's based on. Maybe i can cut off a bit at the top and make it 16:10 or something.
