Would you consider putting them all in a ZIP and putting that up for download? If you haven't already I mean. These are great! Though I'm sad this one doesn't come in 1080p... suppose I could upscale the 768p one but that might look bad.
Oh! Derp, silly me. I should've figured the 1080p would be the download. As for updating, sorta! Maybe once a month or so. Or maybe there's an image hosting service out there somewhere that allows people to download all files in a ZIP without you having to actually combine them yourself.
I haven't wanted to put out vector files for a couple of reasons (SVG seemingly isn't fully compatible with Illustrator's features, so the art often gets messed up if I export to that format, and the file type typically can't be used as wallpaper anyhow), but I thought I might end up doing 4K eventually.
Added a 3840x2160 size for this one, and I'll see about updating the rest.
"Relevant", you say? Well, I don't have a favourite pony in particular. I love them all. So I am not so picky in that regard. However, when it comes to my wallpapers, the 'recipe' has to be just perfect, and to me your recipe is just that. Looking through the "More from deviantART" selection to the right I see a wallpaper series by GenjiLim, which has a similar theme as your series. But I am not watching him. I am watching you. And it is not like GenjiLim's work is bad, it is quite awesome as well. But his work does not follow a consistent recipe. And a consistent recipe is great, because then you can make a system for your desktop and wallpaper rotation, ensuring that your desktop always looks nice; rather than only most of the time or with most of the backgrounds in a series. And to me not having the whole series feels like a shame.
Furthermore, I love the smooth and clean feel of this series. I love the work and effort you put into each piece. I love the abundance of your work. (18 epic pieces) I love the service you provide; by offering 6 different sizes and by considering the feedback from us - your fans. Like when Applejack was given a muzzle and Zecora a different backdrop.
I have been on deviantART for 7 years without really using its features. But this series is the reason why you became the first artist I ever chose to watch/follow, or whatever you want to call it.
Also, seeing it has been a while since your last entry into this series, I was fearing that you had moved on. Which is totally alright with me, whenever you actually choose to do so. But seeing this, or in fact seeing any extra entry into this series, just makes me feel lucky, fortunate, treated and pampered. Thank you for that.
So whenever you think of "relevance", please know that your work is relevant to me. Regardless of the pony portrayed, because I am certain that it will look great, seeing as you are the one doing it. And though I cannot make any promises, I have a pretty good feeling that I am not the only person who feels like this.
P.s. During the writing of this comment I started wondering whether you yourself actually use these wallpapers, and also what else you might like to adorn your desktop with?
Wow, thanks so much for such an uplifting comment! I hope I didn't sound mopey about Coco and Flutters; I've just been amused at how much they've dominated pony art lately.
I got a bit busy with holiday stuff and a job change around the time I posted Zecora, hence a bit of an unplanned hiatus, but I'll certainly be continuing with more silhouettes. I'd like to at least fulfill all of the [canon] character requests, and I might eventually take OC commissions or requests.
I do tend to use them for my own wallpaper, often for awhile before posting them to DA, because it helps me to find any flaws for correction. I know I still miss stuff though, and that different perspectives can be insightful, so I always appreciate constructive feedback. Vectors help make it easier for fixes even after posting, and to output all the resolutions.
>often for awhile before posting them to DA, because it helps me to find any flaws for correction.
And it gives me time to walk by your office, peek at the upcoming wallpaper that you've spent many hours on and is sure to be popular, and say in an art critic voice: "Hmm, nice... but change *that* part."
*Not taking credit for the awesomeness of this series - I just enjoy nitpicking the minor things sometimes. Can't let the award-winning artist get a big head.
I thought I had mostly figured out her 'recipe', but I had not considered the possibility of a 'secret ingredient'.
It is good that she has an art critic by her side, helping her stay on her toes and making sure that she does not rest on her laurels, and thereby helping her becoming her very best. Knowing she has you by her side somehow makes me happy.
Being or becoming big-headed is indeed bad. With my comment I hoped to fill her with exuberance. With all her great work, I feel she definitely deserves it. Besides, it might even help motivate her to keep adding to the series.
