Another humanized mane 6 sketch I had managed to do. I gave her a tank top because I can't paint any more complicated fabric than that. I seem to be struggling, going back and forth, in my decision whether I should approach it in a realistic or a cartoony/manga result. Also, apparently, I find it more difficult to paint a side view than a three-quarter or a front view. 

C & C are welcomed!

I also went to look for more references, and to a point I just googled "side view portrait lighting". Haha! Anyhow, let me just put a few of the links down if you guys might be interested too. No really, check them out!


Maybe I should do the rest of the Mane 6.

Gosh. Would have loved it if the movie style had looked something like this, that bears more resemblance to high school girls.
Is this how you picture her as a human, or as a girl/ filly?
aJVL's avatar
Mm... You could say so. For a better visual comparison (because Im still terrible at painting humans), it's kinda like the characters in the game Life is Strange.

Ah. Had to look that up- looks pretty cool, and I can see the resemblance.
Well done!

I just found my new desktop picture.

EDIT: Never mind, my resolution screws the picture up. (Makes it all pixelated.)

Use it for your phone. XD

Greetings there, aJVL—gosh your name rolls off the tongue—I was wondering if I could use this picture in the possible future for a one shot of Twilight on Earth?
aJVL's avatar
Sure. Go right ahead!

I think the direction you're going with your anatomy approach is going great so far, and I can't wait to see where it will go in the future :eager:

That's one cure adorable daughter.

Man, I think I'm getting old if I think she's looks like someone's daughter.
aJVL's avatar
That's sweet. Is it somebody you know?
Merc-King's avatar
No, but my mind already decided she just like someone's daughter. Heh I'm old.

By the far the most perfect and real looking Twilight Sparkle that I have ever seen.
