Twilight's armor 01

This is not a finished piece but is a small detail from a very large commission I am working on. The total image size is 13.5"H x 26"W. To give you a sense of scale, Twilight is only 4.5" long in the piece.

This is not close to done and there's lots of work with left to be done. Both in Twilight an the piece overall, but I thought I'd give you guys a look at how one my commissions evolves. This being done in colored pencil, marker, technical pen. I will go back in with gouache. Still lots of work to do before this baby is done! Unfortunately it's a iPhone photo so it not the best image in the world.

Is she giving her helmet a lecture?
Lvnnkartistries's avatar
I wonder if the armour would weigh her down enough to prevent her from flight?
Baron-Engel's avatar
It's magical enchanted and she's an alicorn so she's plenty strong now.

She looks like she's lecturing at somepony, who got wise and left before she got going.

Oh there still in the room. This is a small part of the overall picture.
Equestrian analog of nanosuit from Crysis. :) For me typical royal guards' armor always looked like something traditional without serious protection functions from any weapons which can be created with technical level of the second half of 19th centure. But some sort of enchanted armor may be fun.

Ever since you posted up all the development art for this piece I've been super excited to see the finished product! The lighting looks phenomenal in this.

Twi looks good in armor too.

Thet helmet looks a little futuristic for this scen but that looks like a neat office she got :)
Incredible light details in this :D
Baron-Engel's avatar
It's suppose to be some what futuristic looking in that Buck Rogers kind of way.
I do like that expression on her face...its like a kind of annoyed and maybe slightly pissed off look that suits her well.

When the rest of image is posted you'll be able to see what's got her frustrated.

Less than a day, and EQD notices.
Baron-Engel's avatar
Yeah and I didn't even submit to EQD?
Is it me or are her front legs placed too back? It looks strange. It also evokes feeling, that her front right leg is bent to the side.
