Forever Under by Jamey4 Forever Under by Jamey4
Wow did this one take a long time, but I'm completely pleased with how it turned out. I did a whole bunch of new things with this one. I drew the mountains. I didn't model them. I had to manually paint the shadows and everything, which I take for granted whenever I do 3D models.

Well, I'm generally a lyman in the art of making wallpapers, so I apologize for any, possible errors in my trail of thoughts, but I'll try to be fair.

The concept of this piece is definately striking, practically beaming at the first glance. The gray and rather empty background greatly amplifies the void that seem to fill Pinkie in this work, creating a very strong, consistent whole that just grabs teh viewer by the heart.

That feeling is even stronger when you realize Pinkie is generally portraited as a happy-go-lucky pony, whose pics, as a rule, are colorful and cheery. Not being afraid to change that concept and yet still managing to keep the piece believable is no, small feat.

The technique used seems very fitting to this piece's vision - plain, yet greatly playing on the experience this work presents shows that it's not always flash that is the best course of drawing. And the seemingly monotone whole surprises the recipant upon closer look, as he/she spots the subtle details spread across the gray background that push through the wall of water.

Undoubtfully the impact is this piece's strongest side - the tandem which which everything goes together instantly wraps around the viewer, nearly ripping the feeling of depression from their chest. The subtle details, which most only notice subconsciously, adds to the overall sadness by letting Pinkie shed her tears in this melancholic setting, while the weak light of the moon that shines upon the pony through the thick layer of liquid greatly presents the true tragedy of the work as a whole.

Personally, I'm more of the happy-go-lucky type like Pinkie is and those are the pieces I'm most fond of, but one simply cannot refuse this pic's power that snags you right in and yet not being intrusive about it. Truly a masterpiece, especially in its simplicity.

oh the horrible guilt you must feel when your murderous alter ego does it's thing, then you wake up, see the blood on your hooves and... break down...

This sad melody describes perfectly what I felt with this, even though the title of it does not.

"Forever Under." Pressure?

Random song reference aside, I really like how you put in the grieving Pinkamena as opposed to the crazy one. I've always felt that an emotionally distraught "opposite" of Pinkie makes more sense than the "psycho killer" that Pinkamena is often portrayed as.

The name just came to me. :P

I've done around 4 psycho Pinkie wallpapers and none of "sad" Pinkie, so I feel like this one is overdue.

I'd say that the "debt" for Pinkie has been paid in full.
