Another portfolio display picture.

I'll leave it to you to interpret what's going on here.

This picture took me the longest to finish. Mainly because I played around with different settings and color adjustments when I finished painting it. It is also my favorite of the four pictures I did for my portfolio.

MLP belongs to Hasbro
Art belongs to me

This is absolutely beautiful! I came across this by chance looking up Love in in Bloom covers and came across your beautiful song! You draw just as beautifully as you play, this is one of the loveliest Luna pieces I've ever seen, the amount of detail in this is amazing, and you captured her aura and all the beauty and mystery of the night wonderfully here, bravo! :clap:

So here I am, watching ponies and I stumble on this picture on my iPad. I decided to take a closer look at it and was amazed at the amount of detail you put into this!

Now compliments aside, I come to my question: how did you make the stars in this picture? The detail is awesome!

I made a special brush for them in PS. I can control the amount of scatter and the opacity of it with the pen pressure of my tablet. I think there may have been a couple more settings but that's the jest of it.

That's pretty dang awesome. What tablet do you use?

I've got a 8x6 Wacom Graphire 4 which is the model before they started making the Bamboos. I'd like to upgrade to an Intuos though. My dream tablet is one of the new Cintiqs.

Oh nice! I've actually seen those! They look really nice. I'm no artist, so I don't really understand tablets, but I sure am intrigued by them!

Oh, Cody wanted me to email you about something. Can you get on Skype?
