Comm: The Simple Life - Dark Variant by BroDogz


This was done to help show off :icongunflame345:'s story, "A Simple Life". If you like the image, be sure to take a look at the MLP/Sonic story it is based off of. I will even provide a handy little link to do just that.

Thunderlane... now there is a character I am not tasked with drawing too often. Its a shame really as this black stallion is rather fun to draw. His naturally sharp contrast in color basically ensures that the end result always pops off the page. In a world full of inhabitants that dawn every hue under the rainbow, its nice to see this boy bucking the trend. Plus, he is also a pretty good lookin' dude. Don't swoon to hard ladies.

Thunderlane ended up with his own personal space in the final image this is from, which pretty much goes against the mob mentality that is prevalent in the picture. As such I wanted Thunderlane to look strong, even though he was generally alone. That was the inspiration for this piece of pose work. While his wings are not fully extended, it is enough to show off his impressive stature. He holds his head high with confidence and his upward gaze shows off a steely determination. The aspect I am most pleased with is probably his physique. He is big, intimidating even, but he is not "huge". That can sometimes be a difficult line to negotiate. Overall I couldn't be happier with how this character came out as it managed to capture everything I was going for.

I still have many more of these assets coming your way people so be sure to keep an eye out for them. In the meantime you could always take a look through my gallery and decide if you would like to order up a commission for yourselves. All you have to do is send me a note after you take a look at my Commission Price Chart.

Maybe it's subliminal that I have so many pegasus in my story... maybe I just can't enough of the way you draw wings.

I blown away yet again. Thunder's Mohawk turned out well and his pose fits him. I like the contrast between his eyes and his coat. It really pops here and I think that works.

Hmm.. maybe you have a pegasi complex?


Thx for the praise! You being happy with the end result just signifies that I did a good job, and that is always the goal.

Second-favorite Wonderbolt cadet (you probably guess what the first-favorite is ;) )

And he's a B.B.B.F.F. to a little brother to boot!
