The Afternoon Nap by Sintakhra The Afternoon Nap by Sintakhra
There are some things so simple yet you can get so much joy from them. You can bound through fields of tall grass, swim through torrenting rivers. Climb mountains, ski down snowy hills.

But in the end, nothing can beat falling asleep under the lone tree
With your friends by your side.

This was made to make up for the lack of a Comic this week. I hope you lot enjoy it.

Time Taken: 2 hours 30 minutes (Photoshop) + 30 minutes (Drawing)
Timelapse: [link]

The main problem of this picture is the shadow of the tree. That shadow is so wrong... According to your sky gradient, the sun is setting on the right of the picture, so the shadow should be cast to the left... Also, the shadow should be much lighter and blurry, and the colors in the shadow should be more blue, because the sky is blue... Not to mention that shadow of the tree doesn't follow the shape of the surfaces it falls onto. For instance, Fluttershy. Why would there be shadow of the tree on Fluttershy's face anyway? It should be Fluttershy's head's shadow there. Basically, if you are not shading your character's skin, omit shadows on them altogether. The shadow of the tree could be replaced by slightly darkened elliptical area on the ground, which would fit the technique you're using in this picture.
What do you think?

This is so cute and funny. Twilight trying to read an educational book (probably about Starswirl the Bearded), and all her friends fell asleep. Might want to stick to reading your friends the Daring Do series there Twi. Great Job on the artwork.

this reminded me of my sleep-over with all my gal pals, (is it ironic that there were six of us?) my friend ellie was pinkie pie, I was rainbow dash, my OTHER friend ellie was rarity, kriss was applejack, my friend sarayna was fluttershy and my friend hannah was trixie, but she's on in this pic... *sniff*

Fluttershy's forehead is fairly large :L, but nice work with the shadow and background, just change where the sun sets to make the shadows better =P
