MLP Day at the Beach


Badge Awards

It's FAR from being finished, but I wanted everyone to get a sneak peek at the new deluxe print that will be available at Bronycon later this summer! Once the final piece is ready, I'll post it.

This will also likely end up as a comic cover in the near future as well!

As most of my followers/fans know, I don't often do digital color, but how I approach inking on artwork dictates how color will be done. Traditional comic book inking is India ink with brush or pen, and effect/corrections with white paint. Markers or paint can reactivate the ink and smear it, or have adverse reaction to the white paint, so digital is the simplest approach in this case. Check out some of my copic marker pieces for how I approach inking there.

Is all the inking done by brush ... ??, well, I have not done it like that for a long time, lately what I use is a Drawing Pen for that: the brush has the merit of the flexibility of the stroke:shakefist: ... but I am a lover of drawing with a pen :heart::headbang::woohoo:.

AND WHAT DID SPIKE DO TO RARITY ^^; !?, that little one should know how dangerous a Raging Unicorn is.

I may or may not have seen this cover. It depends on which comics shop I was in.

I keep looking at the expression on Rarity and find myself thinking "What did you do this time spike?? What ... did ... you ... do???!!"

I then scrolled down and found it was a water balloon he had.

Does Celestia's copy of "The Rooster Crowed At Midnight" have the last page, unlike Captain Hunnicutt's copy? And will she realize that Hayvery Updike couldn't possibly have been the killer?

More seriously, Bravissimo!

I love Rarity! She looks ready to bury Spike in the sand at this point
Cartoon-Eric's avatar
Actually she's gonna turn HIM into luggage.

Or a new belt or a pair of fancy shoes.

You know it's true. She would throw him so far that Luna would have to catch him with the Moon.
TheOneWhoInks's avatar
XD yep. 

"I'm sorry for causing a eclipse and a massive tidal wave, sister and friends!" moves the moon to catch the lil dragon
