Didn't feel like uploading the lineart, so went ahead with just plain color. Had lots of fun with this (and stayed up way too late), and tried multi-hue lineart instead of my traditional black. Since it was a bit of a gift/challenge from Frisket I tried something more along her coloring style. Anyway, she told me I should draw a pirate pony, so I succumbed in honor of Halloween. There's something about the pose that bothers me though, like I've seen it somewhere else and my mind decided to re-draw it. Oh well.
edit: fixed the lines (I saw I'd missed the outline on a bit of the mane) and tweaked one or two other things that were bothering me. And decided his name should be Captain Crossbones. ('Bones' for short) Definately my favorite MLP I've ever made. So yay, finished! Oh, and I chucked his lineart up in the scraps section in case anyone wants to have a go at giving him a different color scheme. I considered candy corn colors at one point!
Freddy is so sick of hearing about fans making him all lovey dovey and sentimental over girls in fan-fictions and seeing it all drawn out in their art. It's always him and their OC's(which in fan girl language means "ME"). And somehow they think that by making the girl a "tough bitch" or "not human" will change things....it truly doesn't. There are so many of these love fan-fics out there.
I can't blame Freddy for getting pissed, love isn't his thing...and I'm on the verge of puking myself.
