Here's a little something I've been working on during the weekend and finished it today. The concept is fairly simple; just a scenic image of Twilight and Applejack having a little conversation while using their modes of transportation. Felt like drawing with nice lighting and fall season late in the evening is very suited for that.
And here it is for your childish amusement, enjoy.
Anatomy/action-pose study, this time featuring Fluttershy.
Alright, so this is kind of a hybrid between the whole pegasus thing and platforming. We already had Rainbow Dash landing after a big leap, so here's a Fluttershy leaping from whatever it is she's leaping from.
Also decided to go back to my original design for Fluttershy, except that she lost a considerable amount of weight and that her skirt/dress no longer resembles a bed sheet.
I haven't really posted much art, so the best way to get back into it is to just do it. I will post a bunch of new images I did over the past few weeks in the days to come.
I've been doing a lot of anatomy and action studies, and this one came out really good, so I decided to flesh it out a bit. Originally, it was going to have a background of her landing on a roof in Ponyville, but I didn't really feel like going all out on it. It builds on my premise that humanized pegasi are less affected by gravity and can perform acrobatics impossible for regular humans.
Also, decided to draw Dash because she isn't exactly among my favorites of the main six, and I must say that I like this design more with every time I draw it. An agile woman sporting an awesome leather jacket, Dash makes it work somehow.
Another anatomy/action pose study, this time featuring Pinkie Pie as an excuse.
Alright, there's a little bit of back-story to this one, don't worry. Basically I was listening to Mario Galaxy music, which has some of the most epic music ever put in a video game featuring a goddamn plumber, and eventually I came to draw the classic character-turns-quickly-after-running-at-full-speed pose. Also, I haven't drawn humanized Pinkie in quite some time, especially when it comes to a full-body shot.
I like to think these recent humanizations are a huge improvement over those I did for my entry into pony art, you know, my take on those ponies. To me, it certainly looks more correct, though people (and for... probability sake, mostly girls) have complained about the outfit I designed for her. To me, Pinkie's always been on the fringe between practical and girly, so my design features a flowing skirt, light pants and a short-sleeve shirt. Easy to put on, practical and pink.
Enough ramblings, enjoy.
EDIT: Some of you pointed out the error in her left hand, it should be correct now. In a way it was already correct, but only when the hand is twisted very awkwardly. This flows a lot better.
Let's take Lyra, and let's take human Lyra, and put them in the same image in this cover for ~bullet25fxbx's fanfiction entitled "Duplicity". It was a really nice excuse to draw a humanized Lyra, and of course pony Lyra and her usual human-themed hijinks. The entire process was streamed on my Livestream channel and a time lapse of the making of this and Wren will be posted on YouTube soon.
Well, after the concept art and three big Livestream sessions, it is done, Chaos and Evil, a high effort piece featuring humanized Chrysalis and Discord.
I went all out on the shading in a similar way to Can Can Pinkie. The background is kind of abstract-ish, but fun to do nonetheless. For the character, I had a lot of fun rendering the Victorian inspired outfits, especially for Chrysalis. In all, just a big excuse to draw these two for no particular reason, and definitely my two favorite villains from the show (notice the distinct lack of Sombra).
One day, Sweetie Belle is dumped at Carousel Boutique. Her parents tell her to look after her younger sister, for they are going out for the night. Rarity thinks the best way to spend the night is to pig out and watch a movie together. Sweetie Belle, initially excited to watch this "very serious movie for grown-ups", soon discovers that it's rather... disappointing.
The idea for this picture has been sitting on my mind for quite some time now. I did a variation of this back in 2009, but this one's different in that it is actually an effort piece with lots opportunities to play around with lighting and shadows. It really captures what I had in mind, which is one of the most satisfying things an artist can achieve. It was also an opportunity for some subtle world building and even nice throwbacks to other franchises and things I've done in the past. Also experimented with Rarity's design, once again, this time going with a more direct conversion of her hair style as seen in the show.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Another anatomy/action study that I fleshed out. This time it is Twilight about to unleash some 1337-h4xx0r magics on an unspecified target.
Pose was kinda hard to pin down, but eventually I came out with something that I like. Her right-hand leg (the one least covered) might be a bit too exaggerated by its curving, as well as her hands being somewhat big. Nonetheless, it's pure Rule of Cool in the form of a humanized version of an adorkable purple unicorn.
Did most of the inking and coloring during yesterday's Livestream, first one in a long time. It's not really a very lively action pose like the other ones, but it was a nice excuse to draw a pretty lady. Though I still think high heels are fucked up and are a pain to draw.
Nothing special, just a warm-up of Twilight not being too thrilled about being an alicorn now, and some concept art for humanized Chrisalys. All while testing dual-streaming with =DissOrderMedia in the same room. Unfortunately, he had problems with his setup.
