This picture is incredible. I love this art style and how this piece is done. You captured these moments so perfectly and in a concept that's so much fun. It's several references taking place within a reference and it's great. You've done an amazing job and you deserve praise. Bravo! :3

I saw this a long time ago but cannot believe I never favourited it.

This piece is as elaborate as it is gorgeous. I never would have imagined that it is possible to so beautifully summarize the first season. Scrolling down it is truly like walking down memory lane.

What really impresses me is that despite this beyond such a "busy" picture, it doesn't feel messy. The characters with their crisp line and sharp colours stand out against the more softly drawn background, ensuring the drawing is never overwheleming.

It's absolutely wonderful.

Why is the print for this no longer in your store? 

I was going to purchase one, but it appears it is no longer available.

I only print enough for pre-orders and a bit because they're very expensive to print! The next time orders for them will open up again is late June.

Your use of space here is absolutely astounding, and stylistically a nice blend between the show's dynamics and your own artistic approach. Probably one of the most touching, and certainly one of the most inspiring, pieces of fanart this show has ever been graced with.

Mindblowingly beautiful.

Now I'm probably not going to get an answer here, but I can't help asking the question that has been bugging me for a long time.
On many really good pony illustrations, and this one in particular, almost all of the lines have a faint glow, or a shadow, in case of a darker colour. From what I can tell, it's not just the object that is glowing, but the line itself, casting the glow/shadow both on the object's fill and the background. I'd like to know how to achieve this effect.
I can think of a couple of ways to do that in Photoshop:
1) Actually paint each outline on its own layer and turn on Glow or Drop shadow blending options... as ridiculously tedious as it sounds;
2) On some layer above, go over each line with a larger brush with very low flow/opacity.
I've only used Photoshop for drawing, and this was probably drawn in Paint Tool SAI, so I wonder if there is an application-specific method that I won't be able to copy directly.
