I've tried a different approach to coloring and shadong: drawing a grayscale image and then adding colors. Well, it's kinda difficult for me andn the result is not any better than before. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? No idea. Anyway, need to practice more!
It's a completely experimental pic to figure out if I can draw a semi-realistic pony. But I think I'm gonna go back to my previous stly (this one takes too much time). Anyway I hope you like it though. You can't imagine how I liked Dashie in an armor. Ponies look amazing in armors.
Wow I can't believe I finished it. So far it was one of my most difficult drawing. I know it's not anatomically correct (or is it XD), but I wanted to try a new shading and drawing style. What do you think? Also before anpony asks Dashie is just a Filly before she got her cutie mark.
There are some drawings I want to upload today, but let's start of with the one that is connected to the new episode.
You know guys, I have to say, after the episode Rainbow Dash grown in my eyes. Don't take me wrong, I like Rainbow Dash, I like everypony, it's just that some ponies have some personality treats that I'm not so fond of, make them not my top favs. Like Rainbow Dash. But than, in this episode she showed true loyalty. I serously said 'Oh my God' out loud, when she would had given up her dream.
She really showed that, if anypony deserve to be a Wonderbolt than it's her. Tumbs up, RD, you are awesome.

another sad rainbow dash pictureee. This is another cover art. This time it's for coconeru. Kinda shows you what he will be releasing. He has not put the song on youtube yet, since there is a second picture i am doing for him. I won't be putting that one on here so you can only see it there. When he puts the video on youtube I'll put a link in this description.
And would you look at that lovely watermark right smack dab in the middle of the drawing. mmm!
Also, this is a good time to tell everyone that after this, I will be taking a hiatus. I just don't have any passion for art anymore, and view it much more as work than as fun. I really need to take a break. Not completely stopping art, just completely stopping requests. Except for secret santa 2012. It wouldn't be fair to someone who will give something to me for me to just not follow through. So that I will complete, but after that, I won't be taking any kind of requests (song cover arts, etc) anymore. I just can't deal with viewing art as work. Something i once loved to do is now something i don't look forward to doing since it's only work to me now... but if I do ever get inspiration, I will draw. And I will upload it here. That may be tomorrow that may be weeks or months from now, but I will draw again, even if it's not for a while.
thanks for all your patience if you read through all of that, and I'm sorry to all of those who were counting on my for cover arts or requests of some sort. I just can't lose my passion for it, or else I'll never like it. thank you again!
