99 Red Balloons by ThePleonasticPotato 99 Red Balloons by ThePleonasticPotato
I don't think I'll be painting any more balloons anytime soon, they were a pain. Regardless, this was fun to pull off. Can you guess what song inspired me here?

Full time to paint: 5:48:42

I recorded myself painting this, here's the youtube link: [link]

I love this song! Both the English version and the original German one.

Hey now, this is lovely. A reference to a good song and I like the perspective here. The formation of the clouds and the shining sun are a fantastic touch - they make me feel like I'm outdoors when I look at the picture.

Glad you like it.:)

A shame I was still figuring out how to use Premier at the time... I could've added the song to the time lapse.

Spilled milk, I guess.

Too bad, yes, I'd have loved to see it. But there can always be some other musically-inspired artwork... :)

Wow, nice! Hopefully this ends in a party instead of the actual ending. :D

...it's not really hard to guess the song if you put the english title of it in the deviation title...
...just saying... :o

(I don't like Nena... *hides*)

Great artwork though ^^

I'm going to suggest you were inspired by the song "85 Red Balloons"... because that's how many I counted :D

But seriously, I am a bad, bad man, and probably you just really liked Gabriele Susanne Kerner's leather pants in "99 Luftballons"... I know I did! ;)

Wow, i honestly didn't expect for someone to count all of the balloons! And while I do like that version of the song I was actually listening to the Goldfinger cover.

:D I've not heard the Goldfinger cover... I'll have to check it out.

And only crazy people take the time to count balloons... I guess I'm just one of the crazies :D

Ok I counted 4 times and got 88 the last 3 times. Also, upony closer inspection, I see this is brilliant.

Oh noes! I counted wrong :(

But it's really nice to find someone even more pedantic than I am :D

I first thought "upony" was a typo... then I realized it was actually Advanced Equestrian :P

It is an amazing a brilliant image, based on a wonderful song. I especially like how well it fits with the themes of Fallout:Equestria, as both FO:E and 99 Red Baloons both deal with a nuclear war that ends civilization.

Well... if changing pronouns and gender specific words to pony-related similar words is "Equestrian" ie: Fillies and Gentlecolts, anypony, etc., then changing non gendered or non-pronoun words must be "Advanced" ie: your change of 'upon' to upony. :D

See... I really do think about this stuff... which is probably too much thinking :P
