Beautiful Night by Novaintellus Beautiful Night by Novaintellus
Getting awfully late out now, think we should head inside?
It's just such a beautiful night, can't we stay a little longer?
But we've seen all the constellation and stars tonight.
I know, I want to just share the night with you now.

===========
These two lovebirds are really enjoying the night in the park. Living in a city like Canterlot, they always get such a nice view of the stars. It must be so serene to just lay in the grass under a tree and watch the stars roll by.
And those two can't be too cold when they have each other. :3

My favorite part of stargazing is just getting immersed in the vastness of the night sky. Being able to see so many stars in every direction I look is just so surreal. I like to imagine just how the tiny pebble that is Earth moves through the empty void of space, and placing myself on one side of the Earth merely points me away from the sun (arguably, the sun would be somewhere below my feet). And considering constellations, heck those stars are not even close to each in real space. It always blows my mind how such beauty can be seen by such tiny people.

Oh my goodness, this was a really long piece. This was maybe almost half a year to finish; I name my projects alphabetically, and I've already gone through the entire alphabet before I completed this.
Don't get me wrong though, the main reason why I had been working on this for so long was because I wanted to get it right. At the beginning, I knew what I wanted, but I felt I didn't have the skills yet to successfully accomplish it. Thus, I've had a lot of time to hone my skills on other things before tackling this, yet I still had a lot of problem solving to figure out.
But I obviously had to get this right, Ilynalta's a good friend <333
Sorry it took so long. I hope you like it! ^w^

Half a year to finish? That's pretty crazy. But you did some awesome work on this, it looks fantastic! I also admire your patience to get everything right, and it looks like it paid off cause this is beautiful. Really great work! ^^

I'd like to add 10⁴² wows to the pile of amazement that image caused.
 
This picture is awesome, stunning, inspiring, everything is so at the right place, it gives a desire to be out in a field doing the same thing as them, hmm, I meant looking at the sky, yes, looking, at the sky, of course, and such detail everywhere.

Kudos.

There's not enough space to fit that many wow's!
I agree, that's all there is to do in a grassy field. No need for hugs and cuddles :3
Thanks for the delicious love! <3

This is amazing! I NEED TO KNOW HOW YOU DO GRASS! You didn't draw each stroke individually right? This must be some kind of brush or technique...

Aww thanks! <333
I used to draw individual grass blades, but that took forever. For a bit I didn't bother with grass texture, which as never satisfactory. This time I tried a special grass brush, where I had many passes to get the lighting correct. I like how it turned out, but there's room for improvement ^w^

Sorry, I used Photoshop, :( and it's a provided brush.
I've tried SAI before, but got overwhelmed by all the brush settings. idk >_>

It is always a pleasure to discover a new work on your part, especially when the result leaves speechless!
The starry sky is just beautiful, just like the light that is cleared of the moon, it plunges us immediately into the atmosphere.
I already imagine a few crickets and their sweet music accompanied by a slight breeze, It is relaxing, pleasant, It makes you want to be in summer and to know this same sensation carried away by this immensity which, at once so close but so far away ...
They are very lucky that Canterlot can respect this infinite nature, it is not rare that some city deprives us of this spectacle often drowning under the artificial light too present ...
I envy a lot it is two pony, they are so adorable to draw by you ^^
Beautiful work sir Heart

This really does look like a Beautiful Night!  :)  They look so content with each other.  I can't think of anything happier than holding a special somepony and this drawing captures all that happiness and radiates it onto others who see it.  :)

Hmm, ponies are so cuddly, so soft and lovable ^^
I'm glad to hear my art can bring happiness to others. Thanks!
Though I'd be somewhat envious of these two--wish I was there

Oh god. How can I thank you for this ? This is just the most amazing picture I've ever received of these two science butts. The moonlight effect turned out so well, I can't imagine how difficult it was to imagine and paint it.
 The wait isn't a problem at all... worth it ! :D I just feel a bit bad for you, I hope it was not too boring and too painful :/ I love it so much >w< Canterlot looks so beautiful, and this sky, this sky... dawww you capture such a magical thing in it. I can totally relate to what you say about space. Sometimes it's good to sit where you are and realize how ridiculous your personal issues are compared to what's above your head. I wish I could observe a sky like this one every night, but it's just impossible when you live in a capital x3
Talking about the ponies themselves, I believe they're having a great time together. Para looks so cute >.< and I want to ruffle Erlen's mane xD
Again, thank you thank you thank you thank you, you're awesome <3333333

(may I just ask for a high res of this ? thanks in advance ^^)

Yeah, those little science butts are certainly enjoying each other's company. They're so close that if you ruffle Erlen's mane, he'll have to nuzzle Para's XD
It was not at all painful or boring. I just had to push through those painting barriers, but that's always necessary to get it the best as possible.
On the contrary, it was fun to try out this new technique for the starry sky.
Hmm, putting things into perspective really helps remind me to get the best out of life as I can. Shame that light pollution can hide such beauty.
You are welcome, I am so happy to have the opportunity to make art for you. I hope it's at least half as much appreciation I have for all the support you give. <333
(I'll note you)
