The Pickup by 8-Xenon-8 The Pickup by 8-Xenon-8
Haha omg I love working with limited colour palettes.
Something quick.. cause y'know, I should be sleeping... it's 3:30 AM here :XD:

Inspired by H8_Seed's ''The Pickup'' (Hence the title, I'm not very creative with names), which is pretty damn epic song; give it all your love c:

BG on this was totally random, I don't even know what I was doing.
Looks kinda cool though, I guess xD


I need to draw Spike and Rarity more 8I

I love how her heart is reaching back towards his, even as she seems to be moving forward.

It's like such a simple, effective way of conveying the internal struggle going on behind her eyes.

I'm curious, what is going on here? I feel like there's a story to tell here. Spike seems to be looking at a rock with longing. Rarity seems to have taken notice to Spike or something about him. I like this better than most pony-art, to which my response is usually "That's pretty. Next!" I like this because it's not particularly pretty on the surface, but it doesn't need to be. Great job!

Haha xD it's actually a crystal flower, I knew people would think it's a rock/gem though... I should've added a leaf or something :b
And there's not much of a story, I suppose it's whatever you want it to be, I love to leave it up to my viewers to decide :3
Thank you! ^^

Guess it's neat that EqD is actually acknowledging me a bit, they don't usually like original art styles all too much, from what I've seen and heard
Thanks! :3
