Amongst the Grass by Sintakhra Amongst the Grass by Sintakhra
It's been ages since I've posted on DA hasn't it? Well I haven't been -completely- idle, just lacking much inspiration. Because I've become a Lyra-addict in recent months, It resulted in making my new tumblr dedicated to Filly Lyra ([link])

Quite proud of this image! Enjoy <3

First I would like to say that you've done a wonderful job on this piece! You've made the My Little Pony FiM style your own with the shading and the pose. It makes my pony wanna join her on the soft grass.

Speaking of the grass, that is one of the key things that could've been executed better in this piece. It seems as though the shadow under Lyra is on top of the blades of grass. It kind of looks like the layers go (from top to bottom) Shadow/Grass/Lyra. The grass blades just don't pop out as much underneath her.

And the clouds. I don't know if it's a style thing, but it seems like they were really rushed. Kind of like you didn't want to do them. It would be okay to use vector clouds in this case. Or maybe add more of a whispy feel to them? And they seem a bit too organized. There are three whiter ones on top and 3 darker ones below all on the same line and they're all similar shapes and sizes. Try various cloud sizes and shapes and stagger them around.

Overall you've done well and this is one for my favorites. Just a little more practice and you've got it nailed!

To the tune of "Grazing In The Grass" by Friends of Distinction.

And now, to conjugate the verb "to dig":

I can dig it, he can dig it
She can dig it, we can dig it
They can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it
Can you dig it, baby

WARNING: The Leukemian empire is crossing through the Red Rivers in VERY large numbers. Your infantry units from Immunosopolis Systems won't be able to stop them. Your reporters said that they originate from an indestructible source that has walls of calcium. What shall you do now?

That's rather adorable! Of course it is so I'm not even surprised! Also I really like the technique here, it gives Lyra a more 3D look rather then a flat appearance.

Thanks! I usually do use shadows but this is the first time I've actually attempted them to look natural rather than cell-shaded. It came out not too bad I think so I may try and do more of the same in the future.
