I've Got Ya - Blue Sky Version by WhiteDiamondsLtd I've Got Ya - Blue Sky Version by WhiteDiamondsLtd


An alternate version of my sunset-sky Rarijack artwork. I meant to upload this at the same time I did my original picture, but perhaps because I'm always doing twenty things at once I tend to have a horrible short-term memory and so forgot all about it until now. The only thing different about this picture is the background sky color and slightly brighter colors on the ponies as a result, which I made for my own satisfaction since I noticed I have a tendency to put these two on orangey-pink backgrounds together all of the time. And I thought I would share just in case anyone else prefers this version, as well!

This has been my desktop background for two years now. On the rare occasions that I consider changing it I always come to my senses before doing something as silly as replacing this wonderful piece.

WhiteDiamonds, why is your work so amazing?
It's cause you're amazing! That's why!

Sheesh I really love the detail you put into your work
The shading, the paint like textures, etc.!
It's really awesome and I hope to learn how to color in such a way in the future

It's absolutely stunning work and I thank you for existing

I like the shine in Rarity's eyes and her little blush. I think she might be a bit embarassed as to being so flirty with Applejack :XD:

I am not personally a Rarijack fan, but this is absolutely adorable, and very well made, might I add. And because of that, I have no choice but to add this in my favorites! :aww:

actually, yes, i prefer this. i think it's because it makes applejack stand out more, and the blue goes better with rarity's blue-s.

Don't really seem to take much notice of your "scraps" (this sounds horribly degrading to your works, really). This however makes a very nice compliment to your evening picture :D

I really like both versions actually. The other one was felt somewhat warmer because of the orange/pink hues with a sunset in mind and this one is sunnier and brighter like a clear/cloudless day.
I can't choose but I don't wanna chose either :aww:

This is just as beautiful as the first version. The blue sky really gives it a different feeling than the sunset one,which I really like.

Hmm...I must have missed the memo on this edited version. The shading effects work well on both versions nevertheless (though I have to admit that I'm slightly biased towards the sunset version :meow:). It has a vibrant, springtime feel to it and I can say that it's pretty fitting given the coming of the new year.

In any case, lovely edit and I hope you're enjoying your last day of the year! ^_^

Do you think so? Somebody else made a similar comment, and I suppose upon further reflection you may have a very valid point.

Thank you very much for the comment, in any case~!

Yes, let me describe to you the best way I can, which involved sound effects.

The leftmost bright gray of the clouds makes a poof and directs my eyes right!
The top left bright cyan mixed with blue says schwing! You're getting close, but I'm obviously in the background! Look at all my soft blueish strokes, they look as if magenta.
The left part of the image is dominated by ol' orange Applejack! Her bright orangish ways are like bright light to my troglobite eyes.
Upon this long long inspection, which takes about a tenth of a second thanks to our mean, discriminating, prejudiced brain, my eyes decide to lay reset on Rarity's face, and oh boy, what a smart decision! They find nothing but joy in this spectacle of pony make up industry marvel of a face.


Hope this helps!

Agh so many people seem to prefer this version to the original... not that this is a bad thing mind you but still, I'm now wondering if I should have posted this version in my main gallery and vise-versa! I feel so torn~

But whatever the case may be, of course, I'm just happy that you enjoy the artwork. Thank you very much again, dear!

Hehe, of course!

It all comes down to some color theory mumbo-jumbo, but I think that this version just feels a lot more open. Not to mention it contrasts more with the characters (mainly applejack) and they seem to pop out and the relation between positive and negative space seems more crisp.

As for switching the images between your gallery and scraps, eh, it's up to you really but I don't think it's necessary.

Yes, color theory was one of the very few real art classes that I ever took, and even if I honestly think I've learned more through years of experimentation and analyzing artworks on my own. My original thinking for the sky on the first version is that it was a little more appropriate for the mood given the shipping context, which is arguably true, but still this one is brighter, more cheerful and feels much "fresher" to me. I wouldn't switch both images to put the original in Scraps but I will perhaps consider sticking this one up in my main gallery as well... anyhow, thank you for the feedback!

Now see, I actually do prefer this one... Very vibrant and lively, and I think the distinct shadowing edges on Rarity especially suggests a sunny day nicely. It makes the whole thing somehow even cuter to me.

Of course, I might just be yearning for more blue skies in my neck of the woods. Either way, well worth sharing and I'm very thankful that you did!

Ahaha, well, now that I have finally remembered to post this up in my scraps and have begun receiving feedback on it, I have to say that I have been feeling exceptionally torn and wondering if I didn't make a mistake in uploading each respective version to where I did! I've even gone so far to consider bumping this one up to my main gallery as well, but I'm afraid that may be a bit redundant... :(

But yes, part of me is inclined to agree with you; even though the sunset version was the original this one did appeal to me for different reasons, which is why I decided to save both. Next time I'll keep it simple on myself and try to stick to one version!

I think Rarity and AJ may of been needed to be coloured differently for the transition from evening to day, don't think their colour's look right in the day time version :)

Yes, this blue sky background was a bit of an afterthought on my part, and though I did brighten the ponies somewhat I agree with you that it really doesn't work as well as it should with the overall values and color balance. Hence the reason I decided to stick this one just in my scraps in the end, but I'm happy that you still like it regardless!

This looks lovely as well, but I think I prefer the original. The sky colors are are very pretty, and a bit more moody. But it's nice that you uploaded both of them =)

Honestly, I'm really glad to hear that you prefer the original, because in this case I was actually quite torn about which I should upload to my main gallery, and it seems that many people actually do prefer this version! So hearing that did help me feel quite a bit better.

Thank you very much again dear! :heart:

Aww! The version is cute too, it also seems to change the focus slightly, this version draws attention to Rarity's face more while the other doesn't highlight one more than the other, I find

You know, you may be right about that. I did feel that the color made a difference myself, of course, but wasn't sure exactly why or how... or perhaps I just didn't take the time to really look at the picture properly again. In any case I'm very glad that you like this one as well, thank you so much dearie!
