Badge Awards

My Patrons voted, and well... I hope I delivered!
Sunset Shimmer won the February Vote on my Patreon. They forced me to this!!! The Horror.

Never made a Pony Sunset Shimmer before, so that was a good vote result I'd say. Filling up that hole in my gallery. I've made her before so at least I knew some of the struggles I could anticipate. Her colours are not exactly the friendliest, but I gotta get em in somehow, eh.

This piece kinda figured itself out along the process. Did do different sketches, but in general my goal was to have a canvas filling (and exceeding) pose.
Then the shading and w/e evolved from just... starting somewhere hah. Wanted "different"


Approx Time: 5~6 hours

How do you paint eyes like they are wet and covered in smooth glass? The effect is so striking that it makes them look real.
