Death is Inevitable by DrewCopenhaver Death is Inevitable by DrewCopenhaver
I wanted to do something involving PH for Trotcon, so here it is. Might even do another, we'll see. This, besides that truly horrible drawing of Pinkie, is my very first attempt at using a tablet. It's very stylized, so try not to hold that against me, I just love the blur tool so much...

This is from the beginning of Chapter 34: Birthday when Blackjack is hallucinating or dead or both and sees... well, a lot of things.

Total time spent: Over 13 hours, sorta lost track
Total layers: 10

~*~*~*~*

Edit: Okay, they said to the queue last night, so I wasn't terribly surprised, but HOLY CRAP, YOU USED IT AS THE THUMBNAIL?! I was at work when someone first told me... I proceeded to bounce around like Twilight shouting "Yesyesyesyesyes!!" for a few minutes. Also read a bunch of the comments on the draw friends, you guys are awesome. Thank you so much to Seth, Cereal, Phoe, PK, and all the other lovely ponies over at EqD!!

Woah - trippy.
And I can't help but notice that you have put Vinyl and Octy's cutiemarks next to each other. And Blackjack's eyes are a very nice touch. That said, I think the best way I can describe this would be 'busy'. I don't think there is any 'blank' space at all - you have so much here, I'm half tempted to look at the stars and see if there is some meaning behind there pattern as well.
I do have one point, however - Blackjack looks... not quite _angry_ but certainly irritated.
I'm sure I would normally gush a bit more... but, unfortunately, I am very confused as to how I should feel about this piece.
Finally, gratz on the EQD feature.


I'm sorry, but I can't not point this out. Twilight, Trixie and Fluttershy should have no presence here, and Rarity... well, that is signifcantly less mutilated than I would have expected.

Fair enough. Trixie and Twi are certainly part of... something else, but that doesn't mean they don't have some kind of spiritual presence in the void. Who knows exactly what Blackjack experienced and I'm allowed to take some artistic license anyhow. Still, I agree. It got far more busy than I meant for it to, but I also think that there was a really crowded, uneasy feeling to the scene. As for the expression, I toyed with that for about an hour. I did it intentionally because the poor mare is not a smart pony and would probably get frustrated at not understanding what the buck is going on around her.

Yep, I love Vinyl and Tavs. If Bon Bon had had anything more to do with music or sound, she would've been there with Lyra. Actually, it was mostly because of how obscenely busy the picture was already that I didn't add her and a few more.

Taking that back, I noticed that it wasn't Faustpony. XD
Still, awesome.

Reminds me of Genesis, except with Faustpony.
13 hours well spent.

Heh, no worries, you're not the first to say that. I can see how people might think it was the Fausticorn. Thank you. ^_^
