Twilight in Daylight

No new episode this weekend, but I still gotta make some ponies, right?

I've been thinking about making the mane 6, spread across 4 pieces, based on their VAs. (Potential prints)
Although I should've started these 3 weeks ago... but... yea... things aren't going that well.

Either way, here's at least Twilight! Just being... Twilight I guess. Been references some older styles and presentation ways of ponies. But I admit I rushed this one a bit because I literally spend half my stream sketching a bunch of ponies, not knowing what I actually wanted to paint. So I started painting a lot later than usual.

I feel so much like I'm just derping around, though. Not really sure what anatomy, lines, paint style, or even approach to take. But I suppose I do still manage to get some aspect out subconsciously, which I've learning/practices over the past. Like some of the shading. As long as I have an idea of the shapes and style, that is...

Anyhow, the rest of the mane 6 should be done before BronyCon if I can keep that plan. Not sure who's next, some will have to be made throughout midweeks, and some can be done during the next Saturday Stream. A mystery until then!

I love this painting of Twilight being Twilight. You really captured a playful side of her, and I just love how you painted her eyes! I'm excited to see the rest of the Mane 6 soon! Hang in there! :highfive:

There are maybe fans who prefer her old unicorn self. But if there is something that Twilight never lost was her sheer adorkability.

And for if she may lose some with old age, it may be possible. But I would still hug that great mare.

Awesome work
