Here's a drawing that has been haunting my hard drive since mid summer, at the very least. Since it's been ages since I've uploaded anything I thought I'd finally clear it away by digitally inking and coloring it. A bit of a different look than my usual, but it never hurts to mix things up now and then.
The image itself was really an excuse to draw a bunch of characters I haven't drawn yet. Some came out nicely, some... probably needed more work. Still, I do like the community feel of the piece. Twilight totally needs to start doing story readings in the park. She needs to be a proactive librarian! Nobody ever seems to be in that library looking for a book to read.
Yeesh... it's still a long wait until Season 4, isn't it? Perhaps the looming Comicon will give the fandom something to get excited for and carry all of us through the second half of this long pony drought. As for the art itself, this one wasn't even a very good sketch, but for whatever reason I just kept coloring it anyway with no real planning or intent as to what I was even depicting. Kind of art-therapy... it's very hard to draw and color such bright, happy characters and be in a bad mood, and I needed a little more cheerfulness in my life. Hopefully some of that pony-induced happiness passes on the viewer as well.
Edit: As happy as I was with this picture, I felt there was something a little off with the shading... after some helpful critique advice and some tweaking in photoshop I'm much happier with this version. (: You can see a comparison of before and after here: fav.me/d4l2xuz
