If only my Subjects would share my nocturnal fervor...
Since Nightmare Night is almost upon us I decided to draw my favorite Night Mare! I thought it would be difficult, but she was actually very fun to draw! I wish my ability to draw nature was a bit better, but i tried my best to capture a dreamy night scene.
I'm not sure who is more frightening, the menacing shadow creature or Twilight Sparkle holding a huge scythe!
I used Paint Tool Sai to outline and PSE9 to color and shade. I learned so much from this drawing! I have been practicing with several new and different drawing techniques and Twilight Sparkle (my favorite pony n-n) got the honor of being the test subject.
Would have posted this earlier if not for the fact that my computer crashed and I lost 4 hours of progress .....so I started over BUT! I am happy that crash happened because this looks much better than my previous version
Anyway hope you guys like it, because I loved it
Credits to and thank you for letting me color your sketch ([link]). You guys and girls should go check her out, she has awesome stuff!
Edit: Played around with the layers a bit, added shadows here and there, more intens highlights and made a better moon.
So yeah this one has a small story behind it. (I would advice you read this while listening to this [link] cause this was what I was listening while drawing for 7 hours straight none stop!)
Anyway, so I wake up yesterday morning thinking that I will do some studies then go bike around a bit (training is always good), and before that I log in to my social internet sites (da and facebook while still in bed, sometimes it is good to have a laptop ) to check if the world is still spinning around the sun and make sure that doomsday is still fare away (lol).
And so I log in DA and ofc my watchbox has 1200 arts peaces (which is normal considering I am member of 25 groups) and I start going through them. Then I suddenly stop! Why? You may ask, well because of this peace [link] by this AMAZING artist (whom i am watching now hihi)
And so when I saw this peace something sparked in my head (e.g twi in the ep 2 of season 1), What happened next is kinda wonderful and scary in a sense. What I did, I turned on GIMP and stated drawing! I kept drawing and drawing and drawing (I did not even take any breaks to eat or drink or to rest, I was just drawing without stopping) and when I was done with these three peace (which are all base on the original, but at the same time a bit different) I looked at the clock and my jaw dropped. I have been drawing for like 7 HOURS straight! I could feel it too you know, cause my fingers staring hurting like hell and I became very hungry too.
But yeah here I am now posting them up (after getting permission from the original artist ofc).
Things to note, I made three version cause I like them all.
V1 Luna[link]: Is my attempt to finish the original peace
V2 Luna[link]: Is a combo of "mine" V1 and the original peace (cause I like the semi-finished look to it)
V3 Luna: is V1 but different background and lighting (was playing around with light effects and liked the outcome)
So yeah, that's it. Hope you boys and girls like them
Credits: Original peace [link] by whom you must check out because she is AWESOME! (especially if you <3 Luna and Nightmare Moon)
This is another coloring of 's many pony sketches (I made small changes and additions to the sketch, please do not kill me twinkleturtle D: ). Also my fellow brony artist has done his own coloring of the sketch (this inspired me to do my coloring in the first place).
Be sure to check out both of these awesome people!
P.S I know the quality of this peace might be lower than my usual coloring but that maybe due to me being away from drawing for some time now. HOWEVER! I shall not stop! there is always room for improvement, and that is more than true in my case.
Also this maybe due to me spending more than normal amount of time on learning how to animate.....and stuff....*hit* ;D
Inspired by Luna and the last time she raises the moon, before being overtaken by darkness and becoming Nightmare Moon. Now, she doesn't really raise the moon this way, I just depicted it like this to show how she might have felt inside. As if her duty became more of a chore and she felt trapped in it...
Any feedback and critique on both the picture and song would be greatly appreciated
Has been a while since I did a piece featuring an Alicorn (time-wise, I know a good number of the last few pieces I have done have been featuring Alicorns). Needed to draw something before the season 3 premier, and this was the first idea that popped into my head, and I'm rather happy with how it turned out.
