On a Wing and a Prayer by MoreVespenegas On a Wing and a Prayer by MoreVespenegas
This is drawn as a special thanks to :icon11010110100011:.
I wanted to draw a MLP airship and I think I will do a few more in the future as I don't really like how this one ended up.
On a related note I can now open this up for official critique so if anyone would like to do that I would much appreciate it.

Well, I must say that this piece is truly breathtaking and highly original! The way that you integrated the weather and used it to accent your color highlighting as well as shading is just a stroke of sheer brilliance! The details work very well and the tecture is very rich! I also appreciate the subtle detail in the hooves as well as the cascading mountains and sky. You revealed the light through the clouds very well and the design for canterlot is extremely well done! The only critisizm that I have for this is that rainbow's bottom jaw looks slightly large. All in all, a spectacular piece! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

Does your title refers to "Chizh and Co" song? They have some lines in one of their songs that resembles that title.

The last time i commented on your Apple family painting i pointed out some lighting mistakes. Well i can't point it out now, nicely done. Rainbow Dash is clearly is the focal point by the lighting and the most details. I like that the forground -> middleground -> background details gradually decreases and the overlapping gives a nice sense of scale.
Great work. Nice :D

Thanks, I remember you talking about the trees last time.
I think I didn't represent the volume with value properly and could have used some more refined texture on some of the leaves.

I love when an artist can wrap up an entire story within a single image, proving the 'a picture is worth a thousand words' to be true. And with just imagination. Keep it up, I'm gonna go check out your other stuff.

I always enjoy art if it has a narrative and like to include at least a bit of that in my work.
As to what the story is specifically I like to keep it vague so the viewer can make their own interpretation.

I will be honest. The first things I thought was, "Final Fantasy 9???!!!"

Despite this not being the case, this picture makes me really happy. Rainbow Dash is the type who would go out of her way to help those in trouble. Great work.

The airship came about from me trying to merge references of MLP airships I could find and 1930s zeppelins. I don't think it quite worked out the way I wanted it to.
