Storm Control by Rain-Gear Storm Control by Rain-Gear
A piece of fan art for Atmospark featuring his OC Electroshock!
It was pretty fun to do this piece but very time consuming seeing as I redid the entire piece from it's early version which I have included below
Super Cell (live stream progress report) by Rain-Gear

Played a little with the perspective this time around and I think I might try this method out a bit more often from now on.

Hope you guys like it!
I'd love to know what you think about it!

All the best

This is a very nice piece of work. The attention to detail, color, and perception is breath taking. The drawing has great lead line that make the viewers eyes travel to the background. I find it interesting that you decided to change the orientation of the hot air balloon in the back ground. It threw me off for a moment. All in all this is an amazing work of art! The detail in the cloud buildings is great. I only have one question, is there suppose to be lightning on the ponies wings, hair, and legs? Other than that I find the drawing amazing.
What do you think?

Ever since that last piece of art that you brought forth, I have been quite stuck on your art and enjoy it very much! This particular piece is the perfect contrast to your previous one, but I still love it all the same! I love the way that you gave the viewers a glimpse into the inner recesses of Cloudsdale and showed that it is so much more than just a little happy place in the sky while still maintaining your wonderful style! I also love the way that you are able to integrate both soft textures and prominent depths to the charscter design and the environment as well! The character design is extremely well done and carries with it an amazing amount of detail which I appreciate about your art! The wongs are all finely crafted and each part and depth of the body can be seen very clearly and also accents the vivacious atmosphere that resides in the background! I am also really loving the contrasts that exist here between the lighting and shading! The lighting used as random light sources is a genius decision and it works brilliantly with the textured shading in the rest of the clouds! I also love how you were able to maintain the solidity of the cloud structures without sacrificeing texture, color, or shading! The color work is very cool and subtle and I appreciate the way that you use the colors as an accent and let the life of the lighting speak for itself! I have absolutely no negative criticism for this piece and I just have to say job well done! This is yet another fantastic piece that I am very glad to add to my favorites and I hope to continue seeing your exquisite art in the near future! Amazing work as always! Kind regards, Princess Luna

Dash is. In the background you see an air balloon that is also tilted,  which means the perspective is sideways, not cloudsdale

I can get a sense on how massive of a scale those storms are... and that is what makes this picture so great.

Just take all my money, plz.

Woah. I really like this piece with those clouds you put in this and the dynamism of it. On the shot, I thought RD, but with the colors, we can see it's not her. It doesn't effect the artwork has on the viewer.

Wonderful work. You're in my watch list.

I have no words to describe just how amazingly amazing this is.  You must have been watching the podcast and know that I am a huge sucker for forced perspective, and this does it so fantastically well!

Everything about this, the colours, the textures, the me, the background, everything is just wow (/doge).

I don't have any words that are enough to express just how much I love this.  It's going into my wallpapers rotation folder right now and will never leave!  Congrats on the EqD feature as well, much deserve!

I'm glad you like it ^~^ the forced perspective was a trait I felt I needed to do if I ever did a big piece for you so it's good to hear it was a welcome addition! 
Gah I'm so honoured *flailing arms intensifies* 
Thank you! much appreciate!

Wow. Rain-Gear, you really have come incredible leaps and bounds in such a short time. The way you show environments is breathtaking, and you really seem to have an affinity for clouds/weather! Seriously great work. I'm sure Atmospark is in awe, much like anyone who should stumble across this wonderful piece!
