Thousand Yard Stare by CrimsonMagpie Thousand Yard Stare by CrimsonMagpie
Another from last summer, relaxing after graduating by self-indulging with a mooncalf. :meow:

Inspired, rather obviously, by the Vietnam War... I have a huge book of war photographs that finally came in useful for research. Some parts of the painting are a bit of a mess, since it wasn't well planned, and some of the more awesome people amongst you might notice the easter egg I hid away, much to my girlfriend's annoyance (the painting was her birthday present). ;)

Have just gone through a lot of your pieces. Damn, you are good. Your sketches and mooncalves are my particular favourites. Stunning work!

Why thank-you, that means a lot! :meow: It's interesting that you like my sketches, since I don't regard myself as a good sketch artist; I simply can't make quick drawings look pretty! =p

I have some more mooncalf works in the pipeline, so stay tuned. :happybounce:

Do my eyes deceive me? Is that a MALE mooncalf?? BLASPHEMY!

Just kidding, great job, I love your race and war related artwork. I also found da Easter egg. I'm more of a fan of Rarity. XD

It is indeed, something of a rare creature... :lol:

Thanks, I'd like to do some more military-themed work soon, as well as some more Mooncalves. 'Rarity is best pony'? :meow:
