Glimmer in Star's Light

Ah, some Noir-ish work once again. It's been a while already since the last one, Rainity.

Kinda chose to do Starlight, so I could have a potential print for Pacific Ponycon, since it was announced Kelly Sheridan will be there!

At first I wasn't sure, since I couldn't think of anything, but after a browse through my gallery, and pondering about the many styles I've done through the past, I suddenly felt inclined to do a greyscale piece, making it noir while I was at it to have a bit of a theme to rely on. Been wanting to work in greyscale again, since most of my pieces these last months have been pretty much directly into colour shaded.

Unplanned, but I also had to go into some fashionista mode and "Design" a dress for her to make. With Rarity's piece I could just take the one from the episode that one was based on. Not so much here, although I did take a bit of inspiration for the top hat from the Hearth's Warming episode she was in.

T'was fun to make this, do detailing in greyscale once again, and with some interesting challenges it adds, not being able to rely on colour for character identification.

Considering the other VAs who will be at Pacific Ponycon... I got Rarity in greyscale already, and now Starlight... I might very well have to make Celestia too! We'll see where that goes! hehe

This is amazing! Highly approved. Starlight Glimmer has never been so stylish.

I think your drawing style reminds me of the drawings by dimwitdog. Which in his case are NSFW.

This is sweet, elegant, and quite lovely. You did an awesome job on the pretty pony, looking mostly refined yet still a bit self-conscious. Gorgeous work on her form and the terrific amount of depth in the contrasts and shadows. The outfit is fantastic, especially the cute top hat. The necklace adds a nice touch of charm to the ensemble too. The details are gorgeous, even stuff like the wood grain bar and outside the window, even with the depth-of-field. Fantastic work.

It is charming! I wanted to do something to draw a pony in the classic style, the truth is closer to Bioshock setting, just did not know what "colors" to use XDD

The lighting and the grays are amazing.  I would expect to see William Powell walk into the scene at any moment.
