Midnight at the Apple Farm by Stinkehund Midnight at the Apple Farm by Stinkehund
Alrighty.
First picture of the next loading-screen-series for MLP Online; Sweet Apple Acres. 1920x1080 times two, to make it easy to resize them for wallpaper-use.
I can't think of anything to add to this shading-wise, so i would call this one "finished" - however, if anyone finds any errors in it, i'll try to correct them.

Step-by-step:

Outstanding! Magnificent! It looks as if you captured a photograph of Sweet Apple Acres! It looks absolutely stunning and perfect! You have definitely done well at capturing every possible element you could to bring it together into this masterpiece! I love that you put Cheerilee and Big Macintosh together walking home; hilarious! And Rainbow Dash sleeping in one of the apple trees while Pinkie watches was a funny touch as well! I'm guessing Applejack and the rest of the Apple family are asleep seeing as it is midnight; otherwise I would question where they are. But other than that, this portrait is absolutely eye-popping!!! Fantastic job!!
What do you think?

This is Just so amazing...I can't believe it...though the stars could be a little more in definition of a real star. when you look really close to it it look like bubbles..but other than that...This is a beautiful piece of work! I love the details and shading. I think my favorite part out of all of it is the clouds...and the land. It looks like its from a real picture and scene from the show..but with a little more defined..this is what I would imagine it would look like if it was turned into a movie. I hope to see more.

I know the rule of thumb is that nobody can be satisfied with their own work... but stop being so harsh on yourself. This image looks fine, and so do all of your other ones.

When does Pinkie sleep? Or does she not?
Reply
:iconstinkehund:
Stinkehund Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, she takes a nap in the Dusk-version next to Dash. Maybe she's like Batman and just relies on strategically timed microsleeps.

She also probably doesn't have to sleep as much. Some people (maybe even ponies) can get away with 5 hours of sleep per day, while some require as much as 10, or else they'll feel drowsy. It's in the genetics.

Or she works like a Flamingo and only lets half her body sleep at a time.

Now THAT'S something that I did not know. Flamingos can really do that? Wow...
Hehe, now I can imagine Pinkie's head drowsing with drool coming out of her mouth, while she's standing with her arms furiously cooking away in the kitchen. Mrs. Cake walks in and sees her sleep-cooking, the usual.

Yeah, that's why they stand on one leg - it locks in place, so they don't fall over. And when one half is finished sleeping, they change legs and the other half dozes off. It sounds like a pretty handy ability to have.

When I look at these Apple Farm pictures, it feels like looking out a window. This feeling is incredible! Making it that realistic takes lots of skill and talent to pull off. This is simply outstanding.

Well, in 2 seasons and 52 episodes, how often did we see her sleep? We don't even know if she has a bed.

I may be a scientist by trade, but I've always had the natural talent for growing things. And Sweet Apple Acres would fit me fine!

I think it feels a bit muted compared to the wip4. Perhaps more suitable for a night scene but I think that the previous rendition just looked nicer.
