PonyKart - Artwork Style Attempt 3 by Blue-Paint-Sea PonyKart - Artwork Style Attempt 3 by Blue-Paint-Sea
Upon downloading :iconmakkon:'s latest photoshop brush pack, I thought I do some recent experimenting after I realized that Ponykart has been in the dark for quite some time. So I decided to use the excuse of somewhat new news about the project and present a revamp in the art style we chose, to make it more "shadey" and eye catching.

Personally, I'm quite pleased on how this turned out. Sure it may look crazy and frantic with splatters that are all over the place, but isn't that what a kart racer really is?

frantic, crazy, fun? I'd say it does.

But thats where you deviants come in. Since I don't have a premium membership (yet), I can't make a poll about stuff like this, so leave a comment on what you think of this latest approach.

Also used the editing opportunity to add Twilight's Alicorn wings for continuity purposes. :P

Almost forgot; also featured on EqD

Soo....... does this mean ponykart is still being worked on behind the scenes? or are they really not there at all?

I find the style intriguing and well done. However, there's so much going on that it distracts everyone from Twilight Sparkle, who should be the main focus of the picture. If you could make it a bit less distracting, it would greatly improve the overall quality. That, and it's almost impossible to tell when her body ends and the background begins, which is problematic on many counts.

Absolutely great, I really like it! Especially her eyes. And that scarf might look slightly too wide, but other than that it fits her perfectly! Also, it`s color is too close of the surroundings`, Twilight`s mane and tail, even the background behind. Magical blast is great but turns weirdly.

The artistry and style of this piece are truly spectacualr and all elements of it truly breathe life into it and make it original! The lighting and use of subtle details is brilliant! I also love the speckled look in the colors as well as the shading that you implemented! The character design is lovely and there is a fantastic sense of sheer beauty with this design! I really love this and would also love to see more like it! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

I'm loving this style. She looks so carefree, like she's in her own element. (element of magic, that is ;P )

I think that if you're gonna do more Splatter-tastic art, then the splatters should be an offset or inverted color than the front piece. The way it looks now it sorta blends together too much, and makes it look a little messy.

Eh. Not as much of a fan of all the crazy splatters and the chaotic mess of it all. I preferred it when it was clearer what was going on. It feels cheap to try and make something feel more dynamic by making it into a mess. It's not dynamic or engaging, just a mess. If you want to make something more dynamic you need to actually make it dynamic. You're a good artist and I see a good drawing under the mess, but there's still a mess on top.

Also, have they turned Twilight into an alicorn in game?

Pretty cool!!! I like the splattering about it gives it attention and it shows the decision you decide to go with instead of what is normal.
