Fluttershy Bath by LateCustomer Fluttershy Bath by LateCustomer
Nothing like starting the day with a nice warm bath

I'm starting to wish I didn't put that bottle in the pic as it plainly shows my serious lack of design skills. I avoided labeling it as any words seemed to instantly distract from the rest of the image. That's the one real problem I have with this image, anything else is just nit-picking on my part (like that water drop... it looks like it's on the sill and not the faucet).

Now that I got that out of the way... I'm rather pleased with how this pic looks. Man... now I want to take a nice hot bath.

Yeah, I know that feeling. Even though I haven't taken an actual bath in years, I still like a nice, hot shower from time to time. Gotta appreciate the little things.

She must have added a kettle or three of hot water to this cold water.

Aww... she looks adorable.

A perfect blend of peace, cuteness and happiness. Very relaxing piece of work. Well done.

Pfft, "objectivity". Objectivity has no place when people are talking about their 'best poni'.

I really wonder how long did this take you to draw? And for how many years have you been drawing?
Please inspire me, I want to be as good as you!
Reply
:iconlatecustomer:
LateCustomer Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013   Digital Artist
Oh, geez, it's been a while.  My best guess on how long this took me would be roughly 6-8 hours.

As for your second question, I usually say I started trying to draw toons (Tiny Toons, TMNT, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc.) around twenty years ago.  I've been drawing 'seriously', as in reading all the books I could get on illustration and cartooning, practicing techniques, studying color to combat my colorblindness, etc., about seven years ago.  Hope that answers that.

Prepare yourself for a cliche: I can't inspire you to be as good as me.  Don't try to be like me, or any other artist. Instead take stuff from me (my ego!), and other artists you like, and make it your own. Try to see if you can figure out why certain artists do what they do, and learn from that.  See what mistakes they do, and then do better yourself.  And DON'T GIVE UP JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN'T GET THINGS RIGHT AT FIRST.  It will take a good long while before you realize that what you're producing isn't crap :)

Thank you very much! This helps a lot. It's funny that you drew this piece in 6-8 hours (and it has everything - background, shading...), and I just drew one pony (although from scratch) and it took me around 10 hours...
Anyway, are you drawing using vector art or simple pixel art?
And one really important question - I'm 21 yours old  and I just started drawing few monts ago (I didn't even go to high school relative to this subject, though I might go to university) - isn't it too late for me to became an artist? =/ Thanks.
