Beach Fun by Adiwan Beach Fun by Adiwan
This is the submission entry for the Artist Training Ground with the current theme "Athletic Ponies!".

I don't really read fan-fiction but all the ramble about "Past Sins" [link] made me curious and I read it. It is not bad.

But let's have some fun!

There's a rhyme and reason, if they only learn. That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn!

If they keep up the goodnes of it then how could I not. The only problem is I'm running out of epic music for background music. Oooh well can't have it all.

Have to say, Nyx looks quite adorable, the shading also looks nice. Plus, love how Dash is pulling Applejack along on a surfboard in the background too. :)

I would like to know what program you used for this. I have particular interest in the gradient blends you have going on here.

I used Photoshop only with the pen tool and solid and gradient layers. Layer effects were used at the clouds and this magical thingie and the shadows.

Alright I see. So the gradient was not a true mathmatical vector. I originally though you did it in Ai with the Gradient Mesh so I though I would ask how you did it, which you did not it seems. |3

This Image has no raster layers.
The gradient layer has of course a vector: the gradient direction.
I forgot to mention that the magic thingie has the inner glow layer effect.

Nice composition and fun goin's-on! Love the foreboard motor of Rainbow Dash pulling Applejack. I think they have swamped Pinkie Pie. Of course they know that they are responsible for all wake damage including beach erosion. :) Nice vector work. Twilight is looking very cute. It does give me the feeling of being at a beach day, but better, with ponies! Thanks!

Na they just hate every OC. Because they're immature little failtards. It just seems they've managed to single out Nyx because they're bored of poking fun of skywind now.

I can see why people hate original characters. The most are poorly made and exist to the sole purpose to be mary-sue-ish. Most pictures of them are just recolors of ponies of the show or are lazy made ones used the pony generator.

But Nyx on the other hand has a lot of story behind the character that gives her more depth. This kind of OC is far better.

:iconiameliphas:
IAMELIPHAS Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011
Of course.

Then again, they probably hate her more BECAUSE it's popular with the rest of the rest of the MLP fandom. They consider themselves the "adult" part of the fandom (that's a laugh. They're about as "Adult" as the Counterstrike Source and WOW players :-/) and naturally want to rail against anything that the other sites likes, out of some twisted form of revenge on those sites for not embracing their fanatical puritan views.

I hope you won't be offended that I find this hilarious. The idea of a pony limboing is funny enough, considering the anatomy differences, but Nyx's posture doubles it for me
