MxP - Twilight Kiss by paratroopaCx MxP - Twilight Kiss by paratroopaCx
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:

:music: Song Inspiration: [link]

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!

YER WELKUM!!! :la: lol, yeah, that castle is a tricky one to draw from memory! more detailed than it looks at a glance! and lol, why did you hafta wake him up? =P

aww, I'm glad that I'm articulate and that I can make you happy for it :D I'm incredibly sorry that it took so long! I'm ashamed of just going through my inbox now XDD

yes, it's in with the other distortion filters and stuff, I dunno, somewhere thereabouts :I

cause the camera kept changing the view of the castle every time he fell asleep, so it would have stuffed up the BG XD

Nah don't be sorry! Its cool~ :3

hmm, I'm sure I'll find it xP

I'm guessing that you've got the inspiration from the colour of the sky which is included in the mini-game where Yoshi plucks petals from a flower. Yeah, I added that part at the beginning of the one-sided :iconspyroxeloraplz: song fanfiction, "The Loving Kind" (named after one of Girls Aloud's previous singles), which is the long-awaited sequel to the one-sided :iconspyroxeloraplz: song fanfiction, "Rolling Back The Rivers In Time". At the start of "The Loving Kind", :iconeloraplz: was plucking petals from a flower whilst she sat on the steps of the first castle in the Summer Forest homeworld of Avalar from Spyro 2: Gateway To Glimmer.

Peach again with the classic dress and I love how Mario is standing on one of the rails of the bridge of Peach's Castle, in order to be the same height as her. :aww:

Ahhhh... the good, ol' days of playing Super Mario 64 DS. I was still a fanfiction writer at the time. Heck, 2005 is the year I started to write fanfictions and I began with the Mario franchise. :meow: Yeah, I can tell that Mario's so short compared to Peach. ^^; Then again my favourite video game heroes tend to be either short or little. :) :D I still don't know why I still couldn't finish the original version but I can complete the DS remake. :O_o: :hmm: Go figure. :shrug:

Unfortunately, I won't be able to use Gimp or any other software like Photoshop in my university course. :( :ohnoes:
