MLP S2 finale picture! I made sure to choose the pinkiest new pony available
With those two episodes, Cadence went straight in my most liked ponies for being almost as caring and kind as Fluttershy. (or maybe even at a same level? Uhm...) The time she spend alone, before Twilight helped her, with the possible image of her fake-self on the walls, fancied me.
Queen Chrysalis done to be a counterpart illustration to the one with Cadence I did when the S2 final aired! (This one : [link] ) This is also printed as an A5 card, ad the first one, that you can see/purchase here : [link]
I'm always really confused on how to draw her leg-holes with (or without?) applying perspective. Chrysalis, you're too hard to draw, damn.
It took me a week but I got it done before the next episode! I'm gonna go die for a bit before I stream tomorrow.
That episode was a fantastic way to celebrate half a decade of pony. The CMC's cutie mark arc is done! Diamond Tiara is lovable now! Celestia got a letter after I don't know how long! Luna got to see the three she helped grow!
About the piece itself, I did each character separately and completely, except those cut off by the edge. You can see the whole album here sta.sh/2scn1d6ar69 As for who made the cut to get in here, I included anyone who was important and recurring in the current gen, not just main show, that would include the movies. (That may just be because I freakin' love Sunset and I wholly admit to a bias there but whatever.) So, they have to appear and play an important part at least 3 times. I was going to add Zecora, but I ran out of room before I realized.
I also recorded the whole process since that Patreon goal was achieved this month! I'll be putting together the video soon. (just in case: www.patreon.com/silfoe)
I'LL GIVE YOU ANYTHING DASHIE. Just stop making that face! D: _______________________________________________

So, I've been really busy the last week or so with 2 VERY large projects (4+ ponies each), as well as a new part time job and, as always, a podcast to run and edit. So I haven't had much time to do some regular vectors.
However, sometime this week I whipped this up for no apparent reason. Took me 45 minutes. That shatters my old record by, like, half an hour. Sweet. It's nothing really hard, so it's no surprise to me it took, like, no time to do.
Anyways, it's RD being best pony as always. Expect a bunch of custom vectors soon. <3
Sometimes, you just want to make something cool. It doesn't need to make any sense, it doesn't need to be clever, it doesn't have to have hefty social commentary, you just want to make something that is wicked cool awesome.
If there is one series that has made pointless coolness their trademark, it is Panty and Stocking, and this is pretty much My Little Pony infused with their logic, or the lack thereof.
My personal goal was not to go overboard with the shading this time and let the line art do the talking. I think the colors came out really well, with the yellow background contrasting with the car and its passengers.
Of course, we could speculate what is going on, perhaps the girls got sick of all the crap the Everfree forest throws at them so they run it over with a gas guzzling SUV while zapping and blasting anything with a heartbeat. Or they're paying the great and powerful Trixie a visit. Whatever floats your boat.
PS: I left out Spike because I didn't feel like including him, deal with it.
So, after my second appearance on Equestria Daily, I drew this thingy.
After being back to Equestria, it took a while before Luna was able to rise the moon. And more than one thousand years after she raised it for the very last time as Nightmare Moon, but there she is, rising her beloved moon once again.

EDIT: 2013-02-26, added more detail, subtle expression adjustment, simple background and color management fix.
This is my anthropomorphic version of Queen Chrysalis of the changelings. In this picture, I depicted her as a younger queen, not long after her ascending to the throne. She was still a shy and gentle girl here.
I really liked their take on Queen Chrysalis. Unlike most ruler villain who would just sit behind the curtain, she as the queen risked her life to infiltrated enemy territory, all alone, fighting bravely against enemies that much more powerful than her, for the fortune of her people. Even though she looked mean and evil in her plots, deep in her heart she might just wanted to find her true love. Besides, if changelings depend on LOVE to live, then I think they are not necessarily BAD, don't they? At least Shinning Armor's love didn't seem to be affected at all after the event.
I guess Queen Chrysalis may actually just wanted to JOIN Equestria, but she had forgot how to be kind to other races, after all the hardships her kind may had suffered. Well, just another fanboy imagination! Hope you enjoy the picture!

In case you haven't figured it out yet I LOVE this episode. I just had to draw Princess Cadence and Queen Chrysalis Am I the only one wondering how it went down when the Queen captured Cadence? Must've been an epic battle or something, or they caught her sleeping...or maybe she disguised herself as Shinning Armor...or I don't know what I'm talking about XD
Anyways, I'm pretty proud of this piece...drew it in under 3 hours... now if only I could get commissions done this quickly ><
Original time 9h 44min. (excluding sketching, and last minute changes during the video rendering)
Inspired by a certain scene from a certain movie.. I don't even know where the idea came from all of a sudden. ..Aaand a little bit of The Jungle Book too.
Gosh, it has been over a year since my last Fluttershy piece, time to step it up a bit. Gave this more time, and it's pretty much the first piece in a long time I'd call a major one. Although I could've cut like over an hour of goofing around if I just did more planning and thumbnail sketches. You'll see from the time lapse how ridiculously many changes some aspects got until they looked right.
My last forest piece (Zecora) ended up being extremely cold in terms of colors, so I went for something warm now.
I have learned that life can be unexpected. It can be so full of pain and love. That these things, both good and bad, make us who we are. That no matter where our path may lead us, the journey is of no lesser value for the destination. And that journey, the memories born, the love nurtured, the laughs had, the tears shared, for better and for worse, are to be cherished always.
How to put this... The finale was good. I enjoyed it, I enjoyed the music, and I am curious to see how this changes things, if it changes anything at all. I am not mad, and having watched the finale at last, I am glad to know that the displeasure I have felt was not at all a result of Twilight transforming.
No, my displeasure this past month has been at a fandom that cannot reign in their emotions, cannot recognize that spoilers are not something everyone wants to discuss, and cannot recognize that a show that was embraced for its light hearted nature is being treated as anything but. It is ok to have opinions. I would be very concerned if you did not have one. But if being in a public forum, screaming about the latest twitter post without consideration that others might not want to know, and doing so with the same composure of doomsday sign holders, is deplorable. We are better than this, guys.... right?
Sorry for the rant, but this has been bothering me. I hope you all enjoyed the season, and I hope you enjoyed my small contribution. Will I do this again for season 4? Probably. Despite aforementioned anger, I am still enjoying the show greatly, and I don't see a reason to stop because of the actions of others. See you all in Season 04.
After disappearing for a very long while, halting commissions and delaying the creation of OFF-WHITE; I think I owe you guys an explanation.
At the beginning of August I found myself at a hospital, diagnosed with gallstones. The only effective way of getting rid of them is to remove the whole gallbladder altogether. Unfortunately it quickly got much worse. I got a severe case of cholecystitis and developed a hydrocele. It was suspected that the inflammation started to spread to my peritoneum and liver. Even more unfortunately it didn't stop there. During all the medical examination I went through during the next few weeks it was discovered that everything was in fact caused by gallbladder cancer, which before was wrongly identified as inflamed tissue.
You can probably imagine how devastated I was after getting the news - after weeks of pain I got to know that I had cancer with extremely poor prognosis and had absolutely no money for a surgery.
Desperate I turned to my employer - CD Projekt RED (a Polish game developer - check their games out here: en.cdprojektred.com/ ), to ask if I could get my salary earlier in hopes of rising funds for my operation. I got an answer almost immediately - CD Projekt RED decided to pay for my surgery and possible future chemotherapy. There were no questions, no catches, no enforced promises. I was told to take off as much time as I needed to get the surgery and then recover before getting back to work. They were not in any way obliged to help me at all and yet they gave me their full support, without which this story might have ended completely different.
I'm a month after the surgery right now - missing a gallbladder, part of my liver and a few lymph nodes. So far it seems everything is ok and the cancer didn't have the chance to spread. I was lucky in my misfortune to have found and removed it at such an early stage.
I've already thanked all of the lovely people at CD Projekt RED who helped me so much in getting through the incredibly hard time. They hopefully already know how thankful I am and how much I owe them. I do want to repeat the thanks once again though, here on the internet, to share with the rest of the world how kind they were to me. Adam Badowski, the managing director and member of the board at CD Projekt Red; Ben Lee, the producer for mobile games; John Mamais, the executive producer; and Agnieszka Więcek, the head of HR - thank you for all the time and effort you've invested to help me. Thank you for the moral support and all the kind words.
If you're a gamer, please, support CD Projekt RED as much as you can. It's a company filled with very talented and warm people, who do their best to create incredible games.
Using the opportunity I would also, once again, like to thank all of my watchers who were incredibly supportive and who created lovely art for me, even though the only thing they knew was that I was feeling bad. You're the best! As a small thank-you-gift I'd like to create an art tutorial for you. Please, write what would you like to learn and I'll do my best to create something that could help you. Thanks again and see you around!
