A Moment in the Sun

Testing a new style. I actually find this really fun to do. It helps me to simplify my way of thinking about color and values, and I'm hoping this can translate when I paint.
Initially, I was aiming for something concept-ish, but I decided to just remove the line art altogether. Think I accidentally a screenshot instead.

Oh, and if you haven't know, her outfit was based on the new released shorts. Go watch it if you haven't. It's really good.

I love your new style! :la:
Don't get me wrong, the old style is still great, but this is a unique take on the character design more in the direction of cartoonism to realism, which I think is awesome! Hope to to see more as you impreove and perfect your new stylization choice :eager:

I see this and think of the new game Life Is Strange. Looks good.

Her hand and face look... terrible. I like the design and lighting, but the human features just seem off.

Yea.. still getting the hang of human anatomy.

Long time since you posted this, but I actually disagree with the above. Her face here is adorable in a stylistic sort of way, in my opinion.

But you did so well with those paintings of Sunset, Applejack, Fluttershy, and Twilight.

The lighting and colors look great here! I also love the composition and depth-of-field blurs. :)

You know I feel bad for how she was treated in the second movie. But hey she did get a great reward in the end. Good job on this picture.

Twilight is basically passing the torch to her in the second movie.

I can see that.
