This is my Latest Desaster Piece. Lol

Havent done a Cannon pony Drawing in a while so here it is.
Alot of Prep work and Layers in this one
Combined together i think there is 132 Layers See i had to make seperate layers for the spheres and each sphere had 10 Layers.

I Realy like the Space pony theme so i might stick to that for a while.

The idea is Originaly the work of Derick Stenning who was kind enough to let me use his original designs for inspiration. He has awesome work go check it out.


Other than that you can check out my scrap book for my Oroginal sketches and stuff.

Happy christmas and happy new year....i am also unemployed sence my last deviation...GOD DAM IRISH BUDGET AUDIT!!!! Arrrrrgghh!

All i can say is wow.

I thought ive seen some awesome stuff, but this takes the gold metal.

I absolutely ADORE the use of lighting effects in this pice. The surreal affect of the colors really make you feel the mood of the drawing, not something that everyone can do.

The abstract and unusualness (I just made that word up) of this drawing is stunning. To be able to break away from te normal art style of drawing mlp is very bold. You risk people taking this in the wrong way somehow, but the subtle things such as the cutie marks on the pods as i see them keep rthat mlp feel, while allowing the abstractness of the drawing to work its way into your mind.

One small negative thing i have to say is that 2 of the pods have the rainbowdash cutie mark on them, but I don't know if that was intended or not.

Sorry about any random mispellings and such, my phone is cracked and sometimes pushes the wrong key :D

Overall this is a fantasic work of art, and I believe that you should put it up as a print.
What do you think?

Stop fooling around about you being a bad artist. There is no such thing. Your art is quite good and self-humiliation is always wrong.
You now must see what you're good at and find out what you can do better.
Chin up, man! There's always tomorrow and with the ponies, you will make it there.
