Beacon by SpaceKitty Beacon by SpaceKitty
OC pony and setting inspired by the soundtrack and atmosphere of the XBLA game, Fez. Not meant as a ponification of the character (Gomez) or anything of that sort, though.

Thanks to the folks at /r/MLPdrawingschool/ for their feedback on the progressive versions of this work. Created in Photoshop CS6 with my trusty old Intuos2 large tablet.

Ahhhh! Simply magnificent art, as always. Fez is I think my favorite game to date, and I feel like this really captures its feel.

Beacon's one of the best tracks on there imo. Although Home takes the cake.

CS6 has been out for how long?

Also, I have been having trouble with my tablet lately. It's like I'm getting worse using it. Any tips?

I think CS6 released on May 7th (that was part of the motivation for this piece too: "new Photoshop, gotta try it!").

How long have you been using a tablet? It took me awhile to get comfortable using it initially. I often refer people to this fellow's guide, it's detailed and says a lot of what I'd recommend (skip past the purchasing recommendations).

I've been using a tablet for about three months now. Just recently bought a 6 x 11 Intuos3, but was using a 4 x 5 Intuos (circa 1998) before that.

Cannot wait to buy a new computer. My Mac is five years old and chugging compared to newer machines, but I do not have CS3 for Windows :[

Just ordered a new computer myself; mine's 4 years old and also chugging on the Adobe software. Sounds like you're planning to go Mac-to-PC?

With the tablet I'd probably say just keep using it. :) Not sure how long it took me to really get comfortable with mine; frankly I still feel like I have finer control over traditional media, but other digital tools can help make up for that (like the pen tool if you need a precision-sharp edge).

And submit more things! I like your Luna.

It's funny ... when I don't try to draw well, I end up liking what I drew better. Same goes for the Luna. The goal is to draw something I like on purpose. Thanks!

The name you gave her is brilliant. Love the artistic aspect. 10/10 would see again

Thanks! The title was actually referring to a track on the Fez soundtrack, but I hadn't named the pony yet, so perhaps it could work for that purpose too.
