For some reason when I see this I imagine that they are flying in a special place where anyone can fly and that thats why the wingless one can fly. Then he/she goes too high and starts to fall but the red one catches him/her :3

More awesome coloring. It's balanced very well. :)
The sharp edges look really great, too.

The lighting all looks consistent, and I don't see any areas with unusual contrast. I like how the necklace with the key looks, and the stars near the top of the picture are a nice touch, too. My favorite aspect of the picture, though is the sense of motion in the manes. That really adds a lot to the pose and picture overall. :)

Great colors. and the poses are great too. Only the way the left wing is spread seems a bit odd.

I was wondering. Which kinds of brushes do you use? Is the pack downloadble?

:iconcryslara:
cryslara Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009
The four main brushes I use are actually Photoshop defaults, I just realised. I like to play around with different brushes but these are the ones I'm using at the moment - I tend to fiddle with the brush settings to get variation rather than changing the brush, for now anyway.

Here's a quick rundown I threw together of my brushes and what I use them for: [link] :)

How do you do those pics so very fast?! Don't you need time to think about pose, anatomy, colour.... It'd take me days to do the very same thing :D

I think I get too much practice of painting dragons floating around in the sky. ;)
I actually work on multiple pieces simultaneously so while I'm thinking about one or need a break from it I can work on another. It's good because, while I love painting, I tend to have a short attention span sometimes so this lets me swap around without actually slacking. =P

What makes a couple drawing better? Having both of them fly. :)

I don't know that I have much to say for this one. It's obvious that this was a looser, quicker drawing, but it's still a very high-quality piece, of course! Lighting was done wonderfully, as always. And I love their expressions. :D
