Nights Like This: Comic Cover (improvement) by Marigretle Nights Like This: Comic Cover (improvement) by Marigretle
Woot! I'm so happy to get this one done. I'm sure you're probably wondering why I reworked this cover; I was originally going to use my old picture as the comic cover but after taking a really good look at it, I started to kick myself and buried my head in the sand for it. I didn't mind using the vectored background and I was satisfied with the coloring, but I was very unhappy with how choppy the line art was and that is what really got me to dislike how the cover turned out; so I decided to redo it. I thought about having them snuggle in Pinkie's bedroom like I did with the last picture, but then I thought, why not have them snuggle in the night sky on Pinkie's balcony? One, I feel the night time outside background will be cuter and secondly, I didn't want to use someone's background vector like I did from the previous cover picture (yet the irony here, I'm borrowing the cloud vector from the promo poster). I also want to improve on doing backgrounds. I know this one may be simple, but hey I gotta start somewhere, right? Practice makes perfect! XD

On top of that, I wanted to try to do some cel shading, and hoping to shade this way for my future arts instead of just doing the softer shading I did for my previous arts. I'll be honest that I wasn't fully confident with how the shading turned out but after showing it to many friends and artists, they gave me a thumbs up and encouraged me to share this.

If you like it, great! If there's anything you don't like about it don't be afraid to tell me. I am open to criticism, just as long as you're doing it to help me make my art better and not be an asshole.

And incase you're wondering, yes I am working on this comic. I just want to redo this cover first before I get started on the pages.

Programs I used were Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop CC 2014. I also used the Intuos5 tablet Medium and of course, my mouse XD
