Lyra's Dreamscape by AssasinMonkey Lyra's Dreamscape by AssasinMonkey
WIP: [link]
Approx time: 2 hours


This was made with a challenge I got during the livestream.
Because I usually stick with my standard brush. I had to take a texture brush and try to only use that.
Unfortunately I don't have the initial start, because I had absolutely no idea what to do.
I was playing around with the brush, doodles a line and that created an old grumpy grandma head. Which then turned into a cave once that was mentioned in the chat. I tried to make it pony, added in a pony and then we got here.

This was the most normal part of my livestream I guess :P
Also got to share a bit of knowledge and tricks :D which is awesome, it's always nice to hear I was useful to someone

Really awesome use of lighting here, especially with how sharp and intense the beast's maw is, and how faint the forest is behind Lyra!

That was one of the things I tried to show for the viewers. Trying to reinforce the focal point in both contrast and detail :)

That's some pretty radical work on the rendering. Nice job!~
I would tone down the light coming from the cave entrance a little, but still, this is pretty inspiring stuff. Keep it up.

It's quite a strong light indeed, especially with all the black around it. It just kept getting brighter and brighter. Something I can keep an eye on next time
Thanks!

Specially love the lighting. Really well done.
