Commission- Desolate by SoulSpade Commission- Desolate by SoulSpade
Done for :iconobndo: who wanted something sorrowful of Inkie and Blinkie Pie (made them look a little older than I should've >_<)

Never really drew anything like this before, so pleasure pardon the mistakes, or if I failed to convey the emotion right

I was going for something really tragic, but I don't know XD Just hope you think it's ok

What went through my head when I came across this.
"Oh thats a sad picture, nicely drawn tears bleack sett- THOSE TREES, those are nice trees."
I don't know why I suddenly focused on the trees but... they are nice.

Very bleak. Considering how monochromatic this is, it's a little surprising that these two are Pinkie Pie's sisters, but there you have it! (I mean, my dad's older sister had red hair, but neither of her parents had red hair, nor do Dad or his other siblings.)

I suppose the rock farm has kinda fallen on hard times. Which makes one wonder how Trixie got the money to buy that Alicorn Amulet. (Although, the appearance of Pinkie's father in Trixie's flashback indicates that her family, and their occupation, were not imaginary.)

I feel it's a tragic mood all over. Specifically Blinkie showing utter sadness with the dropped ears, tearing closed eyes, and how they are drawn tightly shut, gives a feeling of betrayal like she doesn't want to accept something. Inkie I see that sadness, but with a stronger feeling of disappointment: the stern eyebrow, the frown, and her body turned away from us. The entire picture gives a feeling of betrayal over all and I love it. Great job.

Thank you very much, and quite an intriguing interpretation on the drawing :) I had my friend suggest the same idea about it as he watched me work on it. I must say that I like that as the feeling/mood that is being shown

Nopony expected anything. The day before, he looked perfectly fine and healthy. But then he was suddenly gone, leaving a big fissure in the hearts of those two pony sisters. Many questions were asked. Why did it happen? Did he suffer or was it quick and painless? Could it somehow have been prevented?
But there was one question that was more important than all the other questions combined. One question that would haunt everypony's mind for years...

How in the hay can a pet rock die?!

I appreciate sadness, desolation, and hopelessness in artwork. Thank you for making one, especially with the pie sisters. The theme, background, and sisters all seem to flow together into one river.

We all need a little sad every now and then. Not even pinkie pie is able to stay happy forever. Pinkamena is an example.

Mhm, it's worth tapping into all kinds of emotions when drawing, even ones that may seem unpleasant. There's an appeal to sorrowful pieces

The funny thing is in the next scene Pinkie Pie breaks the fourth wall, teleports to them, hugs them both, gives them cake, and then mysteriously vanishes to find the Elder Ones.
