Early Pie by Jowybean Early Pie by Jowybean
Some more MLP slice of life goodness 

This is what Spitfire Soarin do Just before a hards day work at the academy. 

This piece was a lot of fun to colour I wanted to create a strong contrast to the background and foreground so I used primary blues and oranges for the atmosphere

Note: I changed Soarin's cutie mark since it was not his official cutie mark from the show I did not know he even had a cannon mark.  

Check out my FIM title card project… I will have a new card done soon :) :doh:

Until next deviation LATERS Bronies :peace:

coloured and drawn in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom Pro in 9 hours

Like it:blowkiss:hate it :police: its up to you not marmite :dummy:

I really enjoy this piece you have crafted up. The style is very eye catching, your shading and details are very nicely done, (Its mlp, which idk if that makes a difference), I like the idea of a cool pie shop up in the sky for pegasi to go to.

Originality is a 4.5 because, its very uncommon to see a pie shop, but i have seen one some time ago. Good work tho!

Technique is a 4 because this is an occasionally sued style of art, although uncommon, it is not a brand new genre of style.

Overall the Impact is a 5, because it was obvious you put a lot of effort into making this piece (I myself cant make art for my life :P).
What do you think?

Episode 5 of Season 5 gave us something to think about with more detail coming through about that floating city of Cloudsdale. A pie shop like this is probably a case of the "didn't know you wanted it, until you wanted it" scenario. And who better to promote such a place - Soarin with Spitfire sitting through what would be the 100th pie eaten on that day alone with a few cups of coffee most likely. The colour here is vivid but not extreme. Line work is calm and serene. Everything says, come over and enjoy your stay. Well done Jowy /)

It's like they're some couple that's married for a long time and spitfire has to take Soarin out for pie in early in the morning before wonderbolts training XD so cute! Keep up the great work!

I was so inspired by your amazing artwork, that I decided to write a story based off it. You can view the story here:…

Daaawm cute!

Hey, you can draw love couple of them, Soarin and Spitfire? =)
Guywhodoesdraws Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2015
Okay... love the drawing... but does anyone else think that it takes a special variant of narcissistic elitism to create an entire city which only your own ethnic group can ever visit without some manner of way of making sure ones leisurely stroll through the town doesn't end with them becoming another statistic of that fickle and unforgiving bitch known as gravity?

Weather factory I get, even housing for the workers... but the whole thing seems set up to keep the pegasi seperate from their fellow ponies. Hell, a lot of them seem to take pride in never setting hoof on the ground, and thus, having little to do with anypony or anyone other then other pegasi
TotallyCarbon Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm pretty sure non pegasi can walk on all the large grassy areas. It is only clouds they can't walk on.
To be fair all the races seem to segregate them selves from each other. Applesoosa seems mainly to be earth ponies (as does manehattan to some extent) and canterlot is dominated by the upper-class unicorns (who let's face it think they are the master race)
Only ponyville seems to share an equal mix of all three (as the cutie mark crusaders realise and turn into their display for the Equestria games)
soundestguitar Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2015
I've just taken a long look at most of your work and i love it!!!! Your character designs are very expressive and your environments are so detailed, makes me want to explore them if it were a video game. Very cool!!! :)

I guess that would be a great way to start the day :)
The amount of detail you put into this picture is astounding, especially that background :o (Eek)
The composition of the clouds and your overall coloration is amazing as well Clap Especially how you're using all those vivid colours.
I can imagine the shop owner gets a lot off customers for the view alone :D
Still since I'm always one to find tiny nit-picks Sweating a little...  :
I think it would have been even better, if you made the roof of the Academy building a colour other than yellow / green, so it would stand out a bit more from the background
Anyways, this is a great piece of art to cheer you up in the morning :)

I don't like the face of the mare giving it to soarin. she looks... suspicious.

SilentCarto Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Hah! I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a shop by that name in the show...
Soarin has a canon mark? 
SilentCarto Featured By Owner Edited Apr 25, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Yup! You can see it right before he hurts his wing in Rainbow Falls, around timecode 7:31. Prior to that, he was wearing a dress uniform that doesn't cover his flank in A Canterlot Wedding Part 2 (Rainbow Dash's photo near the end) but it was still just the Wonderbolts symbol.
I never even noticed, and normally I'm all over cutie marks we haven't seen yet. 
Scarletts-Fever Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is a really neat perspective of Cloudsdale, I don't think I've ever seen from the inside. I love how the store front is open so you can see the view.
