Sorcerous Camaraderie by The-Wizard-of-Art Sorcerous Camaraderie by The-Wizard-of-Art
This is technically the second pony-related painting I ever started. The sketching for it began on the twentieth of January 2012, about two months after I "joined the herd", and two days after finishing "A little to the left". I spent a few months working on developing a style for drawing these very unfamiliar characters, planning the layout, and desparately trying to convince myself that what I was doing was perfectly normal and acceptable. I was nearly half-way through finishing the picture sometime around the middle of April when I took a really good look at it, sighed, burried my face in my hands, let the realisation that it was utter garbage use said face for a speedbag, then promptly started over. I worked on it off and on till September fifth, when I finally completed it.

All in all, it was a fun, tedious, time consuming process (I'm starting to sense a theme), and easily takes the place of my Fourth Longest Artistic Project.
 

Doc Martins Colored Inks and watercolor on 12x18 cold press paper.

The ponies look very good.  The background looks very good.  Spike looks a little bit off.

Spike is certainly the weak link of this composition. I'd like to think I made up for it with my latest piece though.

As a fellow artist, it's always nice to see the final outcome of a piece I pour a lot of time and effort into creating. This is very excellent and I love how you included Derpy in the background, yet she's not obscure, she's pretty much going, "That's right, I'm just as beloved as the Mane Six and I'm going to get into this picture!" LOL

You just got yourself a new watcher!

It seems to me that putting Derpy in the background was the best decision I made on this piece. There have certainly been a lot of people who appreciate it.

And thank you very much! I do like watchers!:D

You have a point there. I can think of few things quite as liberating as abandoning the misconception that one's personal happiness depends on the opinions of others.:)

:iconflutterthoughtfulplz: Hmmm... that's quite good. I might have to make that my signature! :D
