No More Throwing Stones by VanillaGhosties No More Throwing Stones by VanillaGhosties
As you can probably guess by the title (if you've heard the song before), this was inspired by 4everfreebrony's song House of Glass which I've loved for quite some time. I definitely encourage giving it a listen, it's an awesome song by an awesome musician.

I know I don't usually draw sad stuff, but I figured this was a good opportunity to do so, having the inspiration because of the song I just mentioned. I really wanted to add more to the background, but this piece has already exhausted me thus far, and I felt like I should just move on from it. Overall though, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and I got to draw Trixie again which is nice.

Nooo, I'm so sorry now!
You somehow made quite a well lit scene look so glum with your coloring, and I absolutely love the detail in the water and especially her face. I see you picking up quite some well known styles and doing so well in depicting such strong emotions. Even though you normally go with happy or determined emotions, you did an amazing job with portraying the pain and really expressing your inspiration. Well done ;_;

Thank you, I'm glad to hear that! It was definitely something different, but it was fun to make.
Though I'm curious, which styles seem to visibly show through? I do learn a lot from studying other artists, and even some particulars, so I'm just wondering what it looks like from someone else's perspective ^^ 
Thank you for the feedback as always <3

Absolutely, I keep picking away at the lighting and am flummoxed with how well the color mixes.
I first thought of AssasinMonkey particularly with the muzzle and face details. Maybe the anatomy is close to Yakovlev-vad's. Idk, it's definitely a combination of a bunch to the point it's your own style. And honestly, I love how well you draw cloth.<3

Yep yep! Those are both inspirations that have been pretty big for me for learning ponies and all, so you're totally right about that :^)
Thank you as always <3

sad, but awesome. i agree with NeverLastStanding, you convey emotion very well :) i'll definitely have to check out the song; i've heard of 4everfreebrony but don't know that song by him.

hopefully you'll reply to this, and then when i wake up way too late tomorrow morning, your reply will serve as a reminder to listen to the song :V

Sugarcult's Counting Stars comes to mind here:

♪ Hey, I wanna crawl out of my skin
Apologize for all my sins
All the things I should have said to you
Hey, I can't make it go away
Over and over in my brain again
All the things I should have said to you ♫

♪ Counting stars wishing I was okay
Crashing down was my biggest mistake
I never ever ever meant to hurt you
I only did what I had to
Counting stars again ♫

Wow, you can really see the emotion through this. You're really good at emotional pieces despite having not delved into it much. The detail that you've achieved in here really speaks to me & I love the disheveled look to Trixie's mane, it gives the nice touch & conveys the emotion. Really beautiful with what you were going for & the shading!
