Similar Deviations
These results appear less relevant than we'd like. While we're working on improving More Like This, you can help by collecting "Drink less cider." with similar deviations.
After yet another "fail-proof" cutie-mark acquisition program went awry, Scootaloo, being the ever impatient one, started getting desperate. The other two aren't too happy.

:iconapplebloomplz: :iconsaysplz: Ah don't CARE how happy he looks, we ain't gettin' our cutie marks in that! Now go git Sweetie out from under the table.

You'd figure they'd invented parental controls and HTTP blocking by now.

First ever piece done with a drawing tablet. It certainly makes a difference. A nice break from the hassle of the NATG too - it's liberating doing stuff by your own deadlines.
Done in Photoshop CS4 from a pencil-and-paper outline. Inspired by the Stalkerloo tumblr. Credits to :iconnelvakre:and :iconspontaneouspotato: for pointers along the way.

EDIT: Took it to peer review with my local brony group and made some changes, as per their suggestions. Brought Scoots' wings higher and closer to the body, reduced the blush, added sweat and lip bite for Scoots, changed Applebloom's eyes so she's looking more toward the screen.

Still available in its glorious mobile-browser-crashing original size via the download link. Preview's scaled down though.

EDIT: Modified the manes of both fillies to be more realistic. The edges were too abrupt.

How she managed to get up there, I have no idea.

Because screw hiatus. I couldn't resist.

Trying out a new technique, substituting my pentool cutouts for real painting over everything. Any and all critique is appreciated. Done with the help of my local brony group, :iconnelvakre: and :iconspontaneouspotato: especially for correcting my many errors especially at the start.

EDIT: Changed the scooter's wheels, changed position of background.

For when your own two wings aren't fast enough.

Scoots thinks it's fantastic. Same can't be said for the other two.

Pencil on paper. Gradient-mapped and colorized in Gimp 2.8 and Photoshop CS4.

For the NATG Day 2 - draw a pony in motion. Or in this case, three. On a vehicle. At perhaps 140mph. Two against their will.

EDIT: Added some background.

EDIT: Redid shadows with SAI. The original penciled ones didn't fare too well.

EDIT: General cleanup. Background should be brighter now, and there should be less visible guidelines.

Choices, choices.

For the NATG Day 10 - draw a pony making a choice/waffling.

Once again, this is a bit dark - this plays on common headcanon that everyone's favorite chicken is an orphan. It's less than that day, though - I don't do Scootabuse.

Done in Photoshop CS4 and SAI 1.1 from a pencil-and-paper outline, with a mouse. (._.)

EDIT: Further darkened the shadows, modified the eyeshine and gave the hair rougher edges. The original was a bit flat.

EDIT: Major changes this time round. Changed perspective (fixes the issue with awkward table angle), changed eye direction, tilted Scoots' head, added wall glow, hoof and lip bite.
Done with the help of my local brony group, a million thanks to them all :)

EDIT: Modified shading on face and hoof. Largely inconsequential.

UPDATE (in lieu of the Scoots episode that aired December 8): Welp, guess this piece is more or less irrelevant now. Scootaorphan headcanon still stands, but she's got an adoptive family now, AND she has some flying ability.

Well, crap.

Sweetie Belle sure does.

For the NATG Day 9 - draw a pony in your favorite game/book/film (Minecraft in my case). Sweetie's VA plays Minecraft too, so I thought this would be appropriate.

Done in Photoshop CS4 and SAI 1.1 from a pencil-and-paper outline, with a mouse. (Damn mice, wish I had a tablet.)

Background an in-game screenshot of a world with seed "sweetiebelle" generated with Large Biomes in Minecraft 1.3.1, dodged, burned and blurred half to death.

Alright, who used Sweetiebot in static mode and didn't reset the settings?

Have a pencil sketch. Inspiration and motivation is really quite hard to come by nowadays. And my tendency to sleep in isn't helping.

Pencil on paper. Edited in Photoshop CS4.

Snips claimed it was an "accident". Poor Pipsqueak.

Oh Apple Bloom, you.

Concept based off a post on 4chan's /mlp/ by some anon. (Post 404'd a long time ago.)

...apart from Lyra insisting on using her hooves to manipulate the yoke because "that's what those arms are for anyway".

Yep, that's normal.

Feels great to bust out the tablet once more, now that most of the papers are over. Four more still on the way though, so that'll be trouble.

Cockpit based off that of the Boeing 727, with some modifications to the instrument panel.

Done in Photoshop CS4 from a pencil-on-paper outline.

EDIT: Changed lighting a bit. Lyra's darker now.

EDIT: Took it to peer review. Dashboard, lights and characters are all brighter, more contrast for characters, added shading to center and overhead consoles. Eyeshine changed as well. Credits to :iconspontaneouspotato:.

EDIT: More peer review. Brighter overall, changed clouds, Carrot's got some red light on her face.

EDIT: Got myself a properly calibrated monitor, fixed numerous flaws that I couldn't initially spot. Clouds should be a dull shade of blue now (purple clouds? What was I thinking?), gradients on panels should be smoother, fixed overlapping layers on right cockpit window and paneling.

I probably should have done that earlier. :/

With a sister and coach like that, who needs lousy old jet packs.

Scootadash being canon (and smashing the Scootabuse fan-theory once and for all) finally motivated me to get my ass off the floor and make something for once. (I swear, procrastination's getting the better of me.)

Done with input from :iconspontaneouspotato:.

There's about three light sources and shadings that really make no sense but it's late and I don't care anymore
