Under the tree by AssasinMonkey Under the tree by AssasinMonkey
Bit more calm painting process for this one. It feels that's easier with environments, just calm progress by brushing bit by bit. No real need to make objects in accurate 3D lighting. Just some happy brushing, make some happy clouds, some happy trees.

Also, Applejack.

Just wanted to make some landscape piece, at least something where it's the biggest part of the canvas which I haven't done a lot lately. I want to make more again. Mountains, always a classic. I did kinda went into this unguided, even if I sketched a rough idea. But, it was fun.

As for the meaning, I'll not mention a lot, letting the piece speak for itself. Find your feelings.

Under the tree...

Under the tree...

Leaves give you shelter

Out of the weather

Take it from meee!


I am unsure why that tune popped into my head, but there you go. Very nice atmosphere. Well done.

This is amazing. I'd like to use this for coverart for a music piece I'll upload on youtube this evening. I'll be sure to leave the link in my description.

I knew AJ was from Skyrim all along. Those mountain-climbing horse genes are evident.

this is a beautiful piece, a full untapped world all for her, she could do anything and yet all I see here is so sad. It gives off a one girl in all the world, a lonely steve in minecraft style setting, you have the universe yet no one. Damn I could only imagine how the feel would change with another character, well done.

That hint of sadness when fall is yielding to winter and you're still trying to hold on to summer. That's what I get from the snow-covered mountains, the leaves on the breeze, and Applejack still in her shorts and tee. It's a melancholy feeling that anyone in a northern clime knows all too well. Just my take :shrug: Lovely painting.

I look at this and cool, calm wave washes over me. This is the sort of art that deserves attention, the kind that can make you feel some sort of emotion.

Nice tweak to the mountain slopes after the rough sketch--they're much more realistic and imposing in the final version.
Very low tree line--must be a pretty chilly area!

Great scenery!

However, to me, it doesn't look happy or cheerful. It looks like the calm before the storm whether it be nature itself, emotion, or both.

Well, this is lovely. I like anthro art like this, where the character is just relaxed and casual, not posing like a Playboy model all the time. Very nice.

at least once there's a new episode again, which will be sometime later this year when the second half of Season 5 starts.
I'm not sure if I'll revisit a previous one in the meantime, though.

could be worse, it could be spike. Just joking, but you need to calm down with the hate on artists pages because you don't like the character they happen to like.

To the galley. Your punishment is three hundred potatoes.

Not for shitting on an already shitty character, but for making the shittiest attempt to rile someone up in the history of shit.
