Halo Prime - Fighting is Magic by HaloPrime Halo Prime - Fighting is Magic by HaloPrime
[link] Dear Celestia, it's beautiful!!!

This picture wouldn't have been possible without the help of a bunch of people.

Irishthorns helped me with the pose of this pic (their blog found here: [link] )

:iconmichaelmcchillvids: Helped me comprehend the way teeth worked.

:iconprezleek: Helped me with a crapload of tips and pointers on shapes and shading.

:iconthealjavis: Gave a few pointers on the shading/blending.

:iconturbo740: Gave me plenty of resources, including the background and the gradient for the text, as well as additional pointers for shading/blending.

Now credits aside, this picture was probably one of the most difficult ones I have ever done. Most of my art is basically clean lines and flat colors. The sketchy outline and even worse, the sketchy shading made this picture almost a chore. I love how the picture came out though, and I am NEVER going to do another one of these again :D. Aaaaaand now I'mma put away my tablet for... a while O_O...

Fun Facts:
-This picture was started on two weeks ago, most days taking 1-3 hours each, although a few had about 6-8 each.
-This picture was created with SAI and finalized (background + text + paint splatters) on Photoshop.
-The shading was the longest process of this picture, taking about 60% of my time.
-This picture consists of nearly 350 layers.
-The most difficult thing to shade was the cloak. Reason being that the cloak was counted as one body piece and I had to get shading done to two colors without it being all buggy. With base colors removed, this was what the shading looked like before I preserved opacity on each layer and colored them appropriately [link] .
-This picture displays almost every single shade I made for each color [link] .
-This is pretty much the longest description I ever made. Woo.

I.. Don't know O_O... I guess one special would be a flurry of books being thrown (he's almost as much an egg head as Twilight.)

If you're paying, it's going to be $20-30. But honest to god, I wouldn't do it because your vest has like 5 colors on it T_T.... I WOULD LITERALLY DIE.

$20 to 30 my plot! that's no where near what your rough draft commission info said! XD

and to be honest the vest can be at least two colors, I'm not to picky on it, you just don't want to do it because you suck at hats! =P

Oh believe me. This picture was 5-10x harder than my normal art style, and other commissioners do the same exact rates for these styles of pictures.
