Lyra and Bon Bon's Balloon Ride by GolemGeekery Lyra and Bon Bon's Balloon Ride by GolemGeekery
Lyra: "HEY BON BON, THAT CLOUD LOOKS LIKE A HUMAN!"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Originally when I started this, I just wanted a wall paper for my desktop. Now that I've finished, I can't use it because of how much stuff is on screen. Oh well, best laid plans of parasprites and ponies. I can always strip out the background and replace it with pure sky. The entire thing is vectored.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I vectored everything EXCEPT cloudsdale. That vector came from here: [link]
It is an incredible vector

Also, while I did the vector of Derpy, the image was heavily based off another vector here. [link]
It would be dishonest not to mention that. :)

Oh, that's brilliant. :) I love the wonderfully detailed background - and I love how happy they both look there, having a ton of fun on their balloon ride. :)

Now all we need left is Lyra and Bon Bon in a Kirov airship.

How did you know where to put everything? In the EQD minecraft server all the iconic buildings are practically in the same place you vectored them in @_@

Really? That's funny. I just winged it. The only building that I am sure on the placement is the town hall. That aside, I didn't know where to place anything and was sure my map was horribly inaccurate. :)

Nice! I made a wallpaper too for the same reason :D . Then i understood why most wallpapers were minimalistic with mostly desaturated colors.

I can see your cloud look a bit "edgy". They look easy to vector, but they certainly aren't. Im personally very disappointed in my clouds too :( . I recommend using as less anchor points as possible to create smoother and more round looking shapes.

Something about Lyra's hooves to head ratio doesn't feel right. Either making her head bigger (though that would require making BonBon bigger too) or making her Hooves smaller should fix the issue.

Overall nice work!

I don't mind my clouds so much but less points would have helped I agree.

I didn't notice the leg thing before but now that I take a closer look I think you are on too something. Possibly its that her legs are too wide. The curved hoof is definitely too wide and the left could be shortened.

On the other hoof, if I had tried to be a perfectionist this would have never been complete. Good notes for next time though or if it really starts to bother me. :)

Im happy if i managed to help. Going back to a submitted piece again for changes can sometimes work but i personally prefer taking notes for the next project instead too. And yeah, especially detailed pictures like this one take way too long to complete.

I thought that Derp looked familiar. :)

I think this is great, there's a lot of work that went into the background alone, not to mention the rest of the stuff. I love the little details like the lyre on Bon Bon's scarf, and their expressions are lively and fun! Not often is Bon Bon excited about Lyra's crazy antics. :P

Thank you very much. I really do enjoy pictures where both Lyra and Bon Bon are happy rather than Bon Bon being frustrated with Lyra. They make a much better pairing that why in my opinion since they wouldn't make a good couple or good friends if every little thing Lyra did annoyed Bon Bon. Friendship is about accepting the differences in others as positives I think... Looks like I got a letter to write.

:iconcelestiaunamusedplz::iconsays3plz:"It's okay. I have eyes and ears everywhere these days.

On a more serious note, I like seeing them happy together as well. It puts them more on an equal stance rather than Lyra being the focus and Bon Bon the comic relief sidekick who has to put up with her.
