A Piece of Pie by PhantomBadger A Piece of Pie by PhantomBadger
I got no puns for this one xD

A Pinkie Pie wallpaper done in the same style as the Rarity one I did previously.
However, I think this falls short, it lacks the same flow that the Rarity one did, I originally made this one as a test to see whether a series of the wallpapers would work, and it's affirmed my original standing that I should try to keep each wallpaper unique instead of creating a series.
HOWEVER, I really love working with this style, so if I ever hit a dry spell with ideas, I may make another in this 'Simple' style, if you like this style, type that shit out in the comments, I need to know if you lot find this aesthetically pleasing.

Art is subjective, obviously. Many do not appreciate an approach akin to 'less is more'. I, on the other hand, do. This particular piece of work makes not only for a fantastic wallpaper for a computer, but would work fantastically as a piece hanging along someone's wall in a modestly painted home.

What is done right in this picture is placement, complementary colors and the tone it all sets. Having Pinkie to one side of the image rather than in the center lets the viewer's eyes focus on her while simultaneously allowing them to appreciate the rest of the image. Combining her placement with the lower end of the pink segment, as well as the darker one, along with her cutie mark floating by her head makes for a thematic connection rather than a disjointed flow.

The gradient used on the pink plays excellently as a complement to the shades of white and grey at the bottom of the image as well, with the simplistic dots of brighter pink lending a whimsical feel to the image overall, as well as representing Pinkie Pie's bubbly and happy personality.

The fading lines on the border where the two colors meet help the image to merge in a way that is both contrasting, yet also subtle; smooth and yet solid. It seems almost as if a wallpaper is being torn away in one sense, yet also as if it a cloud of whimsical thoughts above Pinkie's head and not even on the same plane as the white and grey.

Put simply, this image's own simplicity goes leaps and bounds toward making it a fantastic piece, both as a computer's wallpaper or a standalone piece. Excellent flow for the viewer to follow and take in, with no undue focus put on Pinkie as opposed to the image as a whole.
What do you think?

Im a terrible teacher xD There's lots of tutorials online, all I can recommend is experimenting until you get the hang of it, I've used Photoshop for a long time, and I still dont know all of it.

I find this aesthetically pleasing.

I also think this one's better than Rarity's wallpaper. And I even came here to see if you were doing a series. I hope you do

Well thank you very much, I admit the feedback is a lot more positive than I anticipated, so I wouldn't say no...

Well... in my opinion it's as good as your Rarity one. Although this looks like if Pinkie would be in the way of milkshake tsunami (due of the wavelike background, if you know what I mean. It's 5AM and I might talk nonsense at the moment.)

Nevertheless, I like it very much :)

... Pinkie's look makes me wonder if she's not planning something. Pranks, or parties... 'tis the question of the day, PhantomBadger. :iconkiwibird: What is it, Peewee? *Peewee raises his foot and waves at you* He says hello. *Leans in* Don't let him near your house plants. Remember what he did to Tom's original OC's plant. *Peewee wags his tail feathers* And he's still smug about it.

He doesn't always do it on purpose. Maybe he just had Indian food. Ever have vindaloo curry? You'll breathe fire after that.

Well, I think it's a very nice one! I really like these austere wallpapers; they look very nice, soothing and calming, and not at all distracting (so they're actually usable as wallpapers).
