-now this is your card! *she's talking to a blind pony* -uuhh I don't know... -then this is your card! -I'm not sure... -At least it was blue...? - I don't know what is "blue"! -*turns to the pony crowd* Ta-raaaan!
At least with card tricks she doesn't have to humiliate them to feel good about herself. She's actually pretty cute as she stands, looking so darned serious as she reviews the deck and selects the right card. (I'm pretty sure she wouldn't get it wrong.) Neat work on her showy outfit too. It looks too good to be a quickie, but I'm wondering why her irises aren't defined in the usual style. Still, it's great, and the cards and effects are fantastic too.
This only took me a couple hours. The hat and cape took the longest because of all the stars.
Her eyes...I looked at a lot of screenshots and they all seemed to be a gradient. I have color sheets that have her eye colors laid out as a sort of magenta pink. It looked wrong. I'll have to watch the episode again and see if I really need to change the irises.
No need to look back because you're 100% right. Until looking at the episode again just now I assumed that all ponies had detailed irises. (I don't notice small details like that unless/until I'm trying to draw a character or building, etc.)
So it's my bad completely, but at least I learned something I ought to know anyway.
If you're getting and replying to at least that many messages a day I'm super impressed at your graciousness — but I also feel guilty for replying to your replies in case that makes more things you have to reply to!
...and you're taking mass requests while also studying for an MCSE cert.?
Well, I try really hard to take the time for everyone I can. But pretty soon here that's not going to be possible. And then I'll feel bad. But if I see an artist that is trying really hard then I take the time to browse their gallery (not to mention all the incredible people who have art here too!).
Oh...yes...dont remind me that I'm studying for that god-awful test. I finally got a passing grade on my practice test today. I take the exam on the 31st. It's not something I'm looking forward to, but my job requires it, so I'm going to do it!
And I dont mind chatting with you. It breaks up all the 'thanks for the fav!' posts I churn out. lol
It wouldn't be fair to tell you, "Don't feel bad," because we can't help how we feel, but people certainly understand. Plus that's more time for you to draw for our pleasure. For the relatively small number of comments on my work I should be doing a muro picture for every one. Actually I've been trying to ramp up my own drawing, and especially inking, for an upcoming project myself.
Best wishes on the test. I could have used your help last night after my boot drive failed. (Apparently doing a bunch of selective restores of encrypted files, non-privileged user's data, with NTbackup can mess NTFS up big time.) Fortunately that help would have been mostly to keep me company while I reinstalled and did the full restore.
I'll just be disappointed when it gets to a point that I can no longer browse everyone's page. I cant wait for the 31st. I have a few huge projects I want to start but I'm waiting until I'm done studying. Right now I'm just doing requests to keep myself from ignoring my art.
Really you ought to keep a system image on an external drive so that next time you want to go all crazy on your OS and fake it till you break it, you can just mount the image and restore your computer without having to reinstall Windows.
