Undercut by SubjectNumber2394 Undercut by SubjectNumber2394
Based on a painting I saw at a barbershop once.

I wanted to have a line leading away from Snips/Snails but it always looked out of place whenever I tried so I removed it.

WIP because why not?: [link]

It's a good thing it's Snips and Snail doing this, I'm not sure any other filly would have the ability to outshine the Flim Flam Brothers and successfully get away with it. I especially enjoy the clouds in the background, they go so well with the rest of the picture (which I'm sure was part of it to begin with). A great facebook cover photo (though not without your permission, of course =))

No, it implies she's a bubbly, happy, dork. The bubble warp thing is PURELY fanmade.

Snips likes to run with scissors. That's why he has scissors on his flank.

Its a good thing you did not add that line in because what you have done here is create an awesome contrasting scene between two different forces. What further helps to differentiate these two is the font on their signs and the lack of a store for Snip and Snail's. One thing that I noticed is that the fence in the background has an awkward way of bending from vertical to horizontal, I can kind of see behind Snails but the transition seems unnatural. Other than that it is a great digital painting and would make for a great scene in the actual show. Keep up the great work!

That makes a lot of sense, I'm glad I didn't now!

I had some issues with that fence, but I can see what you mean.

Thank you for the feedback! ^^

I have 50 bits for you two! Just trim it up a bit. Word of advice my good friends, pack up and head over to Canterlot or Manehatten. These folks around here are too broke and too simple to appreciate your fine craft and your technological prowess. The Luddites!

Beautiful!!! I love the expression on Flim and Flam and the details in the painting....

While they're at it, I think the brothers should change their price to "2 bits".....
They'll get the humor!!! :D
