echoes of love by egophiliac echoes of love by egophiliac
Insomnia makes me productive, but only on things that I don't actually need to get done. Sigh.

Anyway, this is Echo, the leader of the bat pony colony from my askblog, Moonstuck. She is surprisingly popular! Not only is she the only character people have asked for a standalone picture of, but I was getting requests for one within hours of her being introduced.

See, seapony queen, you could've been popular too if you'd just been a bit nicer. (And if I'd given you less stupid hair, I'm sorry.) Then again, Woona forewent the pie-tossing and prime-minister-defenestrating this time, so maybe it's not entirely your fault.

...wow, did I ever half-ass those flowers.

At first I thought Serenity what pretty and adorable but then I saw Echo and just couldn't stop awwing over the beauty and adorableness. By far my most fave between sea-ponies and bat-ponies, less decorative and more sweet and motherly. Awwwww~

First thing I noticed when I first saw the bat pony leader was, "Wow, she's beautiful!"

Seems like I'm not the only one to think so!

She's one of my favourite characters of the comic - and we have the same name! xD

I just love all your work so much!
How did you get it into that shape, i mean, did you just take the background layer off or something when you use Photoshop? I can never seem to get it.
Reply
:iconegophiliac:
egophiliac Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yep! Photoshop lets you save transparent PNGs; just turn the background layer off and make sure the file type is PNG (it'll try to save it as a PSD if there are still layers). c: It'll save it as a copy, so it still leaves the original file editable.

I know it works in Photoshop CS and above, not sure about earlier versions...

So, this is really pretty and I'm super glad that it exists. BUT. The title doesn't match the rest of the series, and it really bugs me.
(I'm assuming it's in the same series as the other ones, I guess.)

:iconegophiliac:
egophiliac Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
You mean the ones of Celestia, Luna, and Cadance? No, that series is just the three of them; the idea was to draw the princesses in a G3/3.5-inspired style. This is something else on its own (although since Exuvia got one too, maybe it's turning into a series on the Moonstuck leaders).
Reply
:iconmetametonymy:
MetaMetonymy Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012
Yeah, the Exuvia one has a title that matches the other three, so it looks like it supposed to be along the same lines. If that one had a different title, I would have assumed that they were different because Moonstuck, but now it seems like this one is the oddball.

:iconegophiliac:
egophiliac Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Eh, I just liked the title for that one (and I like circles, you may have noticed). Exuvia and Echo are stylistically different enough from the princess series that I'm honestly not concerned about it. :icontwilightshrugplz:

I layered paper textures over it, and fussed with the blending modes and opacity levels until it looked good. c: I believe all the textures I used are from `hibbary.
