This is something I started drawing quite a while ago, and I finally decided to finish it because I actually like how it turned out. So I'm going to share it regardless of the characters involved or how I felt when I originally started. This is Earth Angel x Shatzi Staffel, a more "realistic" version of them as you can see. I was very inspired by *Earthsong9405's beautiful pony art, and I've been playing around with the no-outlines thing that everyone else seems so effortlessly good at. It is very freeing but I'm definitely out of my element.
For some reason I really appreciate sexual dimorphism. It is so amazing. IT IS AMAZING. DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?
I know I would be a lot more plopular if I stopped drawing OCs and just focused on canon MLP characters, but I can't help myself. There is so much dang art of Twilight Sparklebutt and Princess Celestial Tyrant out there and, while I enjoy it, it will continue ad nauseam. I am a big fan of OC work, so ya'll will just have to deal with it.
The hardest part of this were Angel's curls, it took me probably a whole day to figure out how to not suck at drawing curls (plus I kept getting distracted because the power kept going out a ton thanks obama). And while I like how her mane turned out, I'm still a little iffy on her tail. It's just not messy enough for my tastes. She's supposed to be a forest child, not a princess... What the fridge.
