Stuff that inspired me quite a bit

Rock/speedpaint practice/very experimental stuff, gah
I really like this one, turned out way better then I expected, especially considering I made it in 3 days which is nothing compared to pretty much everything I've made haha.

Makkon and CosmicUnicorn's stuff inspired me a lot tho. I want their skills inside me

And I totally recommend that you download it to see a close-up of Celestia cause wow she's baller as hell!!

Peace out :iconpinkieisexcitedplz:

Oh, this is beautiful! I love arts like this. Backgrounds can be hard to make but yours look fantastic. A lot of amazing details... :heart: I will change only one thing - Celestia's hair. They look very heavy.

Thanks once again! And I should probably have given her hair other textures and made it transparent or something, cause yea it looks a tad heavy :/

Yes, you are right. Lower opacity would be fine.

There was one a timewhen I would have said that rock formations like that, with boulders balancing on spires, would have been impossible.

Now though, I know better.

Ah, I see... this is either some prehistoric time before civilization began on Equestria, or it's billions of years in the future, and Celestia is waiting for life to begin again. That, or she just went somewhere where there's lots of tall rocks. Either way, it's epic alright!

when i saw this i instantly though of makkon, so yeah, looks great man.

though, shouldnt those big rocks have some more shadows in them? being sunset and all that, or phehaps the sky shouldnt be so darker yet?

:iconqsteel:
Qsteel Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yea, I actually left shadows out on purpose, since it would take some extra hours to make. I guess it would look neat, but I also wanted to make this as fast as I could, but thanks, dude!

'I want their skills'. I know that feel, bro. Though I think It's fair to say you've achieved that right here. It's kinda funny, Makkon and CosmicUnicorn have inspired you and you've just, in a way, inspired me. Wonder what inspired them. It's like an unending train of inspiration.
Congratulations :)
