Let Me Tell You A Story About The Stars by Mikk-i Let Me Tell You A Story About The Stars by Mikk-i
I've been working on this all week. When I wasn't working on my project that is.

I really have no idea what I was trying to do with this. It really just drew itself. I just held the pen.

I tried alot of different things in this. Like doing grey scale shading (there's a word for this but I can't remember it..) first and then overlaying the colors. I think it turned out pretty well. I really like it anyway. I plan to test this out more!

The hair is a bit wonky, I know. It just looked weird solid, so I tried to make it a bit translucent.



This is gift for *StarberryLemonade. Her pony OC Stellar is just a doll. I couldn't stop myself from drawing her! :heart:

I hope you like it! :heart:


Now back to work! ;^;

Much love!


I know things are a bit wonky, but I would really love some feedback! <3

I love the way you colored this picture as whole. I personally think it's very hard to get the right glowing effect on things, but you've done a wonderful job of that.
The style fits MLP perfectly and at the same time manages to make it look better. Incorporating the stars into her mane and tail was an excellent idea and captures personality, though I can't really say much on that as it is an OC who I know nothing about. The pose also gives a very calming and thoughtful feeling.
In short, you have done a wonderful job on this, keep it up.
What do you think?

I love the transparent hair and stars. It's really magical.

That shading/coloring technique sounds pretty interesting. I've always wanted to try it out!

I've been waiting to comment on this for ages, i remember seeing it in mt DA watch and i was WoaH =0 i adore he expression so relaxed and i love the stars and just the glow from the lilghting on her coat and suvh is amazing and it REALLY stood out in my watch, i remember i think it made me proclaim to myself WOah... the teals going into yellows are just genius! and the horizontal and vertical light emitting from some stars is totally realistic and just adds much more lil detail to it...

this is one my faves that ive seen from you, i really am impressed!!! its gorgeous!!!!! <333 id be insanely proud of myself if i where you <3 youve inspired me to try drawing some freaking ponies Cx

Thank you so much! (Sorry for taking so long to reply, I'm really slow at finding the right words to say!)
This piece was alot of fun to do, it didn't take as long as I thought it might! I worked on it on and off for about a week I think. I used the copy and paste quite alot with the stars!

I'm really happy you like it! Awww! Thank you! I hope I can produce more things you love! GAH! YESS! Draw some ponies! They are so much fun! (I've been meaning to draw then in different styles, but I never get around to it! D:)

:heart: Hey don't give up! c: Trust me, my 1st ponies did not look like ponies. *Pix3M has amazing tutorials for ponies. (I can't remember if I told you or not!) At one point you gave me a description of what you wanted, but I think DA deleted it from my messages. >.< I planned on doing it as a gift! So if you would be so kind as to tell me which of your beautiful OCs it is, I would love to get started on it! (Well, as soon as I finish the collab)

They are always fun to doodle when you have nothing else to do. Yuss!! You shall be surprised! <33 Aww, you don't have to do that. It'll probably take me like 3 months to draw your present anyway. >.<
