Stained glass by Elosande Stained glass by Elosande
Yeah yeah, OC donut steel. This is Gold Leaf, I've been mulling over for a while and wasn't planning on making a big deal out of her... but I really like how this turned out.

On that note, I've been experimenting with digital techniques and coloring lately, just just some practice. Thoughts?

It is really fun to do, but it takes so much time and practice.

I think I might have seen a picture similar to this in a past National Geographic Magazine issue on religion in Russia. Nice touch including the various tools.

I have been in a glass cutting studio.
I have cut glass and made a mosaic.
It is freakin' awesome.

If it is a Critique you want than here goes...
The anatomy is spot on. I think you did a fantastic job with the anatomy and perspective on this picture. Looking at the other pictures in your gallery this is not surprising. The only thing that stands out to me that could use some work if the shadowing of the face. It is splotchy and makes her look like she has a birth-mark on her face or something. Other than that, the picture is beautiful.

well, I will tell you of glass.
Cutting glass into shapes is the old, and difficult, way.
The new method involves attaching narrow ribbons of soft tin that is painted in coal black and filling the drawings we make with them ribbons with colored film that can be attached to glass using water that has some dish-washing jelly in it.

It's interesting how you chose to practice coloring in the form of a stain glass related picture. I think you pulled it off rather well for the most part. The background is a little vague and empty though. I'm not exactly sure what's holding up the product Gold Leaf is working on. You also seem to lack shading in certain areas of Gold Leaf's body as well as some of the glass panes. But the overall composition is nice, and I enjoy how you portrayed this craftspony at work!

I'm glad you enjoy it! I tried to cut back on the background since it was competing with the character a bit. The frame holding the product was actually a standing easel but it directed the eye off the page when it was visible.

Ah, seen this one already in your thread, nice to see that you colored it. For some reason, your coloring/shading style reminds me about ~Ponyshot's work, but may be because of the brush you used here (check his Autumn Celestia, it is quite similar).

Truth to be told I'm not really fond of such coloring, I mostly prefer cell-shaded one (like that carrot top you did, if I'm not mistaken).

Understood. Sometimes simple, flat and clean can be just as good. I just wanted to experiment a bit with coloring with the texture a little.

What? No eye protection! =p

This pony is pretty, deliberate and sharp (no pun intended) as she etches out the shapes for her next piece. I can't comment directly on the colors themselves, but the shading is a bit on the sharp side yet still looks good. Also, nice effects on the glass on her work table. Her work gear and the headband are really cute too.

So, she just finished yet another picture of Celestia's sister being zapped down to size? ;)

I love the color scheme of the pic! It's very inviting and warm. I think the texture adds to its home-li-ness. Sometimes textures don't work on certain images, but I think it works well for this one because of your bold color scheme. It reminds me more of a watercolor painting.

Oooohh...well this is something.
The character is impressively interesting, especially on how its mane is done and colored. And well its job is very unique, doing stained glass windows for the princesses.

I really like her mane! :D

No, really, I just really like her color palette, mane and tail included. This pony's design is just adorable; it's obvious you put a lot of quality mulling into both her design and the details of the scene. The texture you used looks a little odd when it's applied to anything and everything indiscriminately, though. That's my only complaint, really.

Thanks for the feedback! I could try experimenting with multiple textures next time.
