No, not THAT Twilight... XDDD :iconkillitwithfire::icontwilightplz::iconkillthatwithfire: OR the pony... :meow: :icontwilighthappyplz:

This was the 2nd highest voted on the poll [link] Thanks to everybody who voted and commented! :hug:
Next will be that mini comic, then I'll get back to SMG.

So this isn't the most original trick in the book, BUT I have added my own special little touch! - I got an idea from playing SM64DS:
Instead of making Mario stand on a Mystery Block, a Koopa Shell or whatever... how about the bridge of Peach's Castle? :lol: :iconlegaspplz:

I basically experimented like crazy here... involved a LOT of dodging, burning, gradients, highlighting, toning, smudging, bluring and any other option Gimp has available XDDD;

A bit of self praise here... I FREAKING LOVE THE WATER! :dummy:

anyways, thoughts? XP

shiiiiit this is amazing! I am blown away at your atmospheric-ing, YAY FOR GOLD FILTERS!! :dummy: their poses are so cute, and I love how you've drawn them both, but it's really the colouring that's distracting me on this one, because DAMN you have done well with the oily-effect :D it feels warm, and magical, and almost-but-not-quite surreal, and it adds SO MUCH to the ambience, it's like.... I don't even know what it's like, I just know it's a good thing XD the dimension in the picture is really good, too, it looks like it's got depth and I find myself very much drawn to the foreground just by the colours and amount of detail :D this is definitely a fantastic example of yer epic gimp skeelz, Krystal!!

did you use the 'oilify' filter option at all? just wonderin'

Thank you!! :iconyayzplz: I had to keep my DS open on a view of Peach's castle the whole time when I was lining the background (And CONSTANTLY pressing 'A' cause Mario kept falling asleep xD ) I know this sounds cliche but you have such a way with words!! xD i mean it, how'd you become so articulate? :lol: but really, I love love LOVE your detailed feedback!

Gimp has an Oilify option? O.O never knew that... should try it out sometime!
