It took me long enough, mostly just background, hate working on it. I like drawing a good parts first lol.
My next pic is going to be based on this poll [link] , it is sad though, I waned Nightmare Moon to win. Mean while enjoy enjoying Fluttershy, she would look good on your desktop
Alpha channel version without sweat and blushes: [link] She looks pretty cool without a background.
PS: I hate working on the background, there is always something wrong.
Edit: OK I went true this picture again and added a water distortion, just a Photoshop effect I will upload the old version in to my scrap gallery. I don't know if it's for the better lol.[link]
Edit2: Somepony just did an alternate background [link]
Edit3: psd is now up [link]
This pic is not likely to draw quite as much criticism because one, she's presented without any clothes which is how all the characters are on the show anyway. Second, she's just taking a nice relaxing soak in a hot spring. How many people have done the same thing? Her expression and what may be sweat seems to indicate she may want to get out soon however, as staying in too long will probably cause her to pass out.
The steam and fogginess is subtle enough that it doesn't distract from the view of Fluttershy. The lack of refraction or distortion does detract somewhat, but taking the time to do that would have made this pic take even longer, so I can overlook it.
Your art is so great that it only makes me want to wish harder that you were Equestria Music's site artist. You'll enjoy yourself and meet quite a good number of awesome bronies.
Overall, I LOVE your work and keep making some of the finest art in all bronydom
I still like this, though, it's got a nice feel to it.
I hope Shy doesn't fall asleep.
*am clean minded but perceptive, so looking the pic over it can be seen perhaps a bit of vadge going on or what one could call / call out as perhaps being so? (a bit too much cleft down south for safety)
Maaaay want to either add a filter there JunglePony OR slightly rework her model.
(vadge/tits = nsfw and requires a filter to avoid undue reports from prudes)
If want an 'nsfw' version, by all means but made known as much, with a link to it after "smoothing out" her here 'there'.
(lulz) Still a cute pic, just needs to fix "that".
This looked SOOOOO different in the thumbnail. I was all ready to type this:
Fare thee well, gentle friend.
Regardless, this is absolutely stunning work.
