Night Rose

Commission for GrandMoffPony featuring Roseluck
Cover art for 'Night Rose':…

"The sun has set, the moon has risen, and crowds fill the ancient streets of Marecelona to celebrate the night away.

Among them walks a solitary mare in a long red coat.  Few notice her, but those who do know exactly why she is there.

She is there to dance."

Dancing ponies, in dresses?! Challenge accepted.
Was fun figuring it out. I do often have some motion in the characters, and while some may strike poses that could qualify as dancing, a pony actually dancing has that slight different twist to it.

Additional fun by getting to create a show background character! I haven't done enough official characters yet this year.

Approx Time: 18 hours
Night Rose [WIP] by AssasinMonkey

This is amazing. I saw a scene like this once when I went overseas, and it was one of the best parts of that trip. This not only captures that nostalgia, but it's just a gorgeous piece in the capturing of the moment.

Wow this is fantastic! Great use of lighting and color and the motion in her hooves and body are fabulous. I especially love the details you put in the dress. Captures her movement very well and gives it a nice flowy feeling overall.

Amazing work. Redundant to say but true.

BTW, my mother loves you works and likes to watch your streaming sessions.
