ALRIGHT!! this project was one I have had the most fun on to date. The came to me that I wanted to do a huge scene from scratch and I saw that 's birthday was coming up, I thought what-the-hay and went for what you see above and decided to us her OC Wildfire. After tons of reference for the BG the rest was cake.
Who doesn't love how beautiful a sunrise can be??
Not sure why the dimension of the image is so weird but meh. whatever.
Although at the time of this posting it's a little early.
Seeing as how Wildfire wanted a hooficure so badly I got you a voucher.
Not sure if it's the gift she really wanted though.
Jokes aside, I'd like to thank you for all the hard work you've put into this awesome show and for your willingness to interact with the community at large. Please accept this humble art newbs gift and here's wishing you an awesome bday, hope you have many more!
Oh yeah here's her page
As for the pic itself Wildfire is an awesome character to draw and work on. The hair in particular is very different in comparison to other characters in the show.
I went for just simple character piece, originally the idea was to have her look surprised while standing in front of the bike from Darkwing Duck with a ribbon tied around it. Didn't like the way the base sketches came out so I decided that simpler is quite often better. Wound up creating her cutie mark from scratch too, decided I'm going to start keeping a library of cutie marks.
The background I kept in line with what Sibsy has been doing in her coloured sketches of Wildfire. Again simpler is better and I decided to keep it loose.

So I entertained the lulls in activity at Everfree NW by sketching. During the storyboard panel, which was much fun, Sibsy came by to listen to her boss talk. I ended up drawing a sketch of her OC, Wildfire, which I then gave to her after the panel was over. She was very gracious about accepting it, and I felt that it was a good enough drawing to get the full treatment once I got back. Of course, given various house-related matters that took priority, I did not have the opportunity until now.
