That Tiny Glass Of Water Please by lazyperson202 That Tiny Glass Of Water Please by lazyperson202
Had to draw something after Discord's song yesterday! :eager:

Originally Cadence was going to be in this, but she stood out too much in the background, and was too big to put at the bottom left in front of Twilight :icontwilightshrugplz:.

 I was experimenting with blending lines/colour with this. Also tried adding highlights around the characters.

Amidst the swirling vortex of his own creation, he still manages to give puppy eyes and a friendly smile :meow: As a die-hard fan of our Draconequi friend, I adored this episode and found the theme of his sickness to be a refreshing twist on his inclusion in the show, whereas every other appearance of his thus far has been based around him being a loose cannon.

It looks to me like you've captured not only his song, but the entire episode's premise, nicely :D

Random side thought, but the fact that a long, serpentine creature is emerging from a swirling whirlpool, actually reminds me of Scylla and Charybdis from The Odyssey :XD:

If I were to put on my complaint hat and point anything out at all, it'd unsurprisingly be the water. Water is a pain in the ass to make look realistic at the best of times, and while I think you've done a great job with the general flow and shading of it, I think you should definitely try out some more water pieces in the future, as to try out some other techniques to try and bring out more shimmer effects and possibly even some shadowy transparency :)

Other than that, the characters themselves look fantastic, I love Discord's expression and pose the most, and Twilight's look of apparent concern that her poor books are in danger of becoming waterlogged is priceless :giggle: Keep up the good work!

In my opinion, this is an amazing picture. Though it is from the show and does not portray complete originality, you portrayed Discord and Twilight's face emotions perfectly. Based on this new episode, I believe that the way you did this was extraordinary. Also, it was a good decision not to put Cadence in this picture because this picture seems to revolve around the relationship between Discord and Twilight. Cadence would have ruined it. I absolutely love the mischievous sparkle in Discord's eyes. I also like the texture of the water, but I am not a big fan of how you shaded the water. I imagine water to be smooth, even in a giant whirlpool. The shading made it look a bit choppy. The highlights on the characters are nice, however I believe you should tone it down a bit. I like the way you shaded Discord- everything on him seems just like the show. However, there is something off about Twilight. Her eyes are very nice, but I think her color needs to be a bit lighter. The highlights could be affecting that, as well. The impact on me was extreme. Considering the fact that I absolutely ADORE Discord, I believe that you portrayed him perfectly. It feels like I can imagine him in my living room asking me for a cup of water with that terribly familiar glint in his eyes. Also, Twilight's expression is priceless. It makes me know that she doesn't want to be in this situation, but she helping Discord because she actually really cares about him. Overall, I think that this was a great photo. The contrast of Twilight against the water makes her pop out. I think her eyelashes are a bit off, though. Very nice photo with good proportion and lines. Keep up the good work! :)
