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.

It was interesting how she grabs a bowl of fruit, but instead of eating the fruit, she dumps it and eats the bowl. It was interesting.

Beautiful! She pops out and looks so real!

There should be some gems in that cupcake if you want her to eat it :)

Not only happy to see Ember again, but so darn funny with what she did with the cupcake, and the look on Derpy's face after. Priceless. ^.^

Awesome portrait of second best dragon.

Second? Nah First She is the only best dragon :icondragonwant:

Implying that you don't like Spike... or consider him as second best.
TsuriaDragon's avatar
Second best is right especially since he caused the disaster in last week's episode and didn't take responsibility to fix it earlier they had to call him out on it. So I don't hate spike but he's not deserving of the number 1 spot.

I see the point.

In context to the art, she's facing us to make the image work -- in universe, she's eyeing the delicious opposing wall...

I honestly thought she was gonna EAT it. Either way, it made Derpy sad. :P

haven't watched this episode yet, but my best guess involves Ponyville's favorite mailmare

Ember is awesome. I hope we'll get to see her spend more time with Spike and Thorax in season eight.
