Meliorate by I-am-knot Meliorate by I-am-knot
Twilight has been up every night this month practicing her magic. You should get some rest I think.

Dear ..zzZZ

This is memorable, and big-company illustration quality.
Looks like a final project of a class. Dunno if I'm accurate. However. With this. One thinks you can introduce yourself to a new threshold of confidence. With more like this, I'm sure you'd reach a fine job in games or film or SOMEthing if that's what you yearn for. Dunno how old you are. With the structure you used to create this, you could go on forever and you'd have my confidence. I say this to you and not to every artist I meet because there is an intense level of fearlessness in this what with all of the subtleties, which make the big difference. It's clear that you understand that the little things are what make the big difference, and God, if you believe in God, is clearly in this.

I admire that her eyes are a little bit sullen instead of quintissentially erect. Makes this seem more real and human, since magic folk could have reason to be less pleasing on the eyes than somebody in the more directly-physical arts; I mean.. martial arts. You get it.

You have a structure now.

Ratings are relative with whether this piece 'works.' /wave.

She's really how I would expect her to look like. A teenage witch. Sort of like Raven off of Teen Titans if you've ever seen that show.

Hey Tim!

Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't really do series of pics anymore. They are frustrating. But I'm glad you like this one.

No plans for the other characters. Probably some non-pony things next.

Holy f*ck, man. That texturing, and more broadly, that shading. It's stellar here. That chainmail hip guard and the metal plate, that leather arm and back and neck and leg-guards, that hair, that dress, that book, that beautifully designed glove of hers, all shaped and textured so darn well. The face is a separate topic entirely, with the texture being almost eerily smooth and it being so pale, and yet not all that unrealistic while at it. And all those details, from those stitches on the leather and that soft bend near the foot to all the engraving on the armor and jewelry and books. So gorgeous. Just... wow.
Needless to say, the lighting is no less great, the way it works with the hair and the dress. While, as someone pointed out to me once, metal armor isn't generally as reflective and is normally duller, it still works well there too. And them wave distortions near the symbols, like in oil.
So all in all, that shaping, that shading, that design. You've helped me define my vision of human Twily a bit better with this. Thanks, and great job!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you.

That covers most of it.

But I do feel like I should point out that the "oil" effect is something I didn't see until I had uploaded the piece. It's an artifact that occurred when I was okaying around with sharpness I think. But it doesn't take anything away from the piece so I left it like that.

Oh and thanks!
