It feels so good to be home~~ [Week 33] by AurelleahEverfree It feels so good to be home~~ [Week 33] by AurelleahEverfree
Update 2: Added print-sized canvas for those who want prints
Update: Fixed some texture/coloring issues with the rocks, some white bits in the lines, issues with luna's mane, some transparency issues among others. I also increased pixel density from 72 PPI to 300ppi cause I know some people like dense pixels. 
Thanks so much to everyone for their ongoing support and for their encouragement! Thanks to you guys I'm able to spend enough time at this kinda thing to really grow. It's amazing to see how far I've come in just over 8 months!! This one is at the same level of my Celestia pic, if not a bit better, I think.

 
I couldnt have done this pic without the support of my patrons! If you'd like to help me make more pics like these, please consider checking out my patreon at www.patreon.com/Aurelleah

This was done on a series of livestreams here picarto.tv/Aurelleah and here youtube.com/c/aurelleahofficia…

Firstly I'm not an expert I'm just giving my feedback to assist in growth, do note I am nit picking for the most part .

- Luna's hair is very detailed , you can see every strand but that makes its stand out from the rest of her body . Less detail would help the two parts to meld together better , try using a thicker brush .

- Push your lights and darks exaggerated contrast is not a bad thing .You could also increase the vibrancy a bit they are pastel coloured after all . A good thing to do it to keep a set of pastels next to you for reference .

- Less detail , this is something a find very hard myself . Great artworks allow room for the imagination .

I could post more but I don't want to be overly critical.
What do you think?

You shouldn't save your images as JPGs. JPGs degrade the quality of images to get smaller file sizes. Your artwork would look better if you saved it as PNGs. And resaving a JPG as a PNG doesn't reverse it; it has to be saved as a PNG from the beginning. Also, they don't scale up or down very well.

:iconlunchymunchies:
Thanks! It looks better already! And I know they take up way more space, but at the same time, you want your art to be the best it can be. Did you actually already know about JPG's degradation and were using it anyway because of the much smaller file sizes?

I knew about jpeg compression yeah, it's just like mp3 compression. There's some quality loss but it's not that noticeable, though for some reason I remember png files being bigger than this. It only wound up being double the size

lunchymunchies Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2016
Oh, and for future reference, there are programs out there that can cut some of the file size out of PNGs. Google either "png optimizer" or "png compressor".

Compressing a png makes it a jpeg in quality. There's actually little difference between a png and 100 jpeg, when dealing with paintings. It matters with photos but not as much with paintings.
