Dragon's Ember Threat



New MLP Episode inspired art for my MLP Season 7 Episode Art collection!
Season 7, Episode 15: Triple Threat

Well, I sketched out two things for this episode, but ended up with this one. A bit more of a mash-up of different elements representing a reference to the episode. The other sketch I had was of Ember vs bear Thorax.

Maybe I just wanted to do a single character piece, trying to get some aesthetics from older pieces beginning 2015 through into this. Not sure if I succeeded lol, making a dragon instead of pony was enough distraction I think.

Anyhow, this is a primarily greyscale based piece, with most shading done there. Then colour added. I did feel like my value distribution was a bit rusty, since I haven't done that many in the last months. I also thought about how I go about choosing colours... I try to stick it close to the show, rather than just an approximate guide.

Either way, pretty interesting episode. Could see where it was headed quite early on, but the path towards it was at least covered with some interesting characters, info bits, and such. And I'm sure there's folks out there who're already happy just to see Ember again hah.

Approx Time: 7,5 hours
