New Adventures Ahead by tinuleaf New Adventures Ahead by tinuleaf
This piece is a bit particular. It's a birthday gift for the mod of Ask Awesomedash : [link]
A few week ago, his friend *Magrior kindly offered me a 3 month subscription so I proposed as a thank, to do a picture for him.
Instead of asking a picture for him, he asked me if I could do a picture of Daring Do for his friend.
I though that was really sweet of him !

Anyway back on the picture... It’s been a long time since I last did this kind of shading. Last time was in 2008 D: a bit before my art-block.
So it was a bit hard to go back at it since I usually do vexel shading…
Also I wish I had passed more time on it. Mostly on the rocks to give them a better texture and a better volume (I hate doing rock XD )

(Still wonder why I choosed this kind of setting…)

Anyway despite all this…
I enjoyed a lot doing it. It was my first time drawing Daring Do and I hope the result look at least Ok in the end XD

Is it the lighting that's messing it up, or is her mane supposed to be turning grey?

This is fucking outstanding! Great work! I love the details! And I can't leave out dat shading and lighting which is just awesome! The water design is glorious as well, and the trees look absolutely perfect.

The natural rock design combined with the amazing composure of Daring Do just really make this piece spectacular. But the finishing touch is the beautiful sky. Holy shit, like I thought this couldn't get better but WA BAM! HERE'S THIS FUCKING KICKASS SKY. WAZAM!

I want to say that this deserves to be featured in every pony gallery ever. It's fantastic work and you should be very very very proud of the finished product.

Great work, and I hope to see more from you soon. +watch

I'm so sorry for taking so much time to answer back but I was so behind messages (and since I try to answer them all @_@)

Anyway you got me speechless with such a comment.
I just don't know what to say aside for a big thanks for taking the time to write it and pointing out what you like in the picture !

I hope the rest of my work won't deceive you ;)

I think her mane should go further down her neck (looks like it's all coming from the top of her head like a human) but other than that it's brilliant! :) Gorgeous background!

tinuleaf Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012
Ah yes you totally right about the mane. I've just checked the scan of my original sketch and there was more on the neck but I forgot to do it when I cleaned the sketch. It was a very "chaotic" part because it was the point where there was the waterfall, rock and mane... I failed to understand my own sketch OTL

I'll try to correct it when I'll feel less lazy :p

Thanks for your comment and pointing it out.
