Spike's Dream by Bryal Spike's Dream by Bryal
Now we know what Spike dreams at night. :)



I think I set a new record for myself for the number of effects used on one vector. I have: shadowing on Rarity, shadowing under Rarity (with cutting the shadow off to simulate the angle of the rock), a slight glow around Rarity, a copy of Rarity colorized to fit the picture better and made opaque, and a newly-researched (for me, anyway) way to put a fog effect on Rarity. The final product just makes me squee. :D

Spike: R-Rarity you look so nice!
Rarity: Thank you darling!
Spike: -Leans in for a kiss-
Rarity: -Shoves fabric down his throat and trots away-

I would assume you're looking through his eyes.  At least that's how I made it. XD

I love Rarity! I don't know why so many people hate her...And excellent blending and picture, by the way! Very well done:)

And yeah, more people need to like Rarity. She has one of the best voice actors, after all!

That heavenly light effect just blows my mind, this is probably your best artwork! I really like how natural it looks and the Rarity vector used.

Thank you. :)

Just to make sure, the picture already had the "god rays" on it. I just added a filter of sorts to Rarity to make her fit the god ray look better.

Oh really? Didn't know that, but since you've shown so much talent i assumed otherwise. The picture is magnificent anyways!

WOOOOOOOOOOAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!! That is my reaction. Well, I think the flare of the sun makes half the photo, I have never attempted to do fog (not that I can, since I have none around here) or a glow. This outshines all of mine 10 times.

UN-BE-LIEV-ABLE, ASTOUNDING, SPECTACULAR, BEAUTIFUL WORK!!! (This is the highest congrats phrase I have ever given someone; ever. and you're the first to recieve it)

Thanks for all of the praise. :D

Do note, though. By fog and glow effects, I'm talking about the ones on or just around Rarity. The picture itself already had the lovely sunbeams and mist from the water.

yes, but you perfectly matched it to seem like there was nothing different. I would not have known you had added the glow or the fog effect had you not mentioned it, it's that well blended into the photo.

wow, I see a lot of art like this and yours is probably the best. I really want to know how to do this kind of art. What program did you use?
Reply
:iconbryal:
Bryal Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
My sole editing program of choice is GIMP. I know Photoshop has all that fancy stuff in it, but if you know your way around GIMP, you can really do some neat stuff with it. On every picture I do, I like to hunt around GIMP's options to see what else I could try.

thank you for the advice. I might try GIMP someday.

Google is your friend if you need to look up tutorials on how to do things. There are lots of them out there.

how did you come up with the idea for that?
Reply
:iconbryal:
Bryal Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
I like to browse Google Images for amazing photos. Sometimes, I look at a picture and feel like I could put a vector or two on it. Then, I go to #MLP-VectorClub and take a look at all the amazing vectors for one that I feel fits the picture best.

Sometimes, this process can almost take as long as the time it takes to make the picture itself. :P

do you do commissions or requests or stuff like that? (Collabs even?)
Reply
:iconbryal:
Bryal Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012
I've only done a few requests in the past. Sometimes, the suggestions are doable, but not always.

If you have a request, feel free to ask, but I can't offer any guarantees that I can do it.

Bryal Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
Well, I could take a look at them and see if I could come up with a picture for it. I'll give it a try, if you have one to show me. :)
