Did you do this in pointillism style?

no, the stars were flicked off the end of a paintbrush :D it was a lot of fun, but the wall behind the canvas took a few hits

Heya,

Just thought I'd let you know I've used this as my tumblr background image. I hope you don't mind. I'll be giving credit where credit is due should somepony ask. This is beautiful, you've managed to capture Apple Acres perfectly. <3

If you do mind that I'm using it as a background for tumblr, please let me know and I will change it.

If you don't mind, THANKYOU! <3!

This has a very (very) faint hint of Van Gogh's "Starry Night".

This is the one I saw on Equestria Daily, magnificent! This is truly a wonderful sight and I like how it has an impressionist outlook in the piece:wow:

Thought that looked like real paint on EqD. I love seeing - and making - those kinds of images. I absolutely adore the way you handled the sky.

Aaaand then I looked at the name, of course it's real paint. Hi Tridgeon! The shapes of the buildings are really cool and I'm liking the glow in the back windows a lot, too!

Fast work man! Great job. You may have to work a tad on the depth as the barn looks like a giant building, it may be the green in the grass but I'm not certain. The stars....oh man now that is well made :)

thanks Tsitra! I can think of a few things that can give the illusion that the barn is too large... composition is still the hardest part of these for me, I really appreciate the advice!

I like the composition. And one really cool thing is it's subterfuge. You could put this in a gallery and anyone who didn't know would look at it and think it was just a pastoral scene. This is like a secret Brony detector! And making starfields is fun! Did you use a toothbrush?
