Sleepover by Raedrob Sleepover by Raedrob
Once in a while I get an idea that I really like,
and I get the motivation , perseverance and willpower to make it the best painting I possibly can make of it with my current skill set.
I pour hour upon hour into the painting, and in the aftermath I feel content with myself.
This is one of those select few paintings.

This is one of the projects I've spent most time on,
if you start the counter from the moment I got the idea in my head to the finished painting.
In this case it took about two months for the idea to get fully painted.

I thought this would be a pretty adorable subject matter.
Pinkie for once being the eager reader, while Twilight just wants to catch some shut eye.
What makes it more funny is the fact that the lamp doesn't really help out any of the two.
It seems to annoy Twilight the most though :P

The concept of dark environments, especially when a bright light is added, is still very difficult
to me, so I kinda wanted to practice it. Also, dat drape rendering.

I appreciate it very much,
since I started out I was a bit afraid that I'd never get my own style :P
Everything can still change though, my age as an artist is still very young.

I don't really like few things here and there, and anatomy............................................
is hard, isn't it?
They're not humans you know

Then why you gave them human-like anatomy? :s

To be quite frank, I don't see the issue.
Feel free to enlighten me though =)

Your arms come from your sides, right?
Ponies' legs come out from something in between of middle and side, they're more hidden than the human anatomy.
I don't think that they could lie their hooves flat on the bed if laying on the back, nor bend them enough in that direction.
In the end, they would still be in the air, more or less

I know this is a shitty argument, but there are plenty of other drawings around giving ponies' hooves/legs similar or identical properties.
For the sake of making the painting the way I had imagined, I don't feel bad for bending some rules when it comes to anatomy. It doesn't really hurt the composition, quite the opposite in fact.
I do appreciate that you take your time to find flaws in my paintings though, it's just that sometimes they don't matter too much.

Dat drape rendering indeed o.o :iconnoddingtwilightplz: Perhaps the best instance of fabric illustration I've seen in pony fan art so far. Much better than my limited attempts anyway.

Excellent, the lamp not really doing anything for either of them(other than annoy Twilight)is perfect irony. For we know Pinkie can probably see in the dark as well:lol:
