Sleeping Sky Bolt (Dusk Guard Fanart Contest)

This is Sky Bolt: Pegasus mechanic and member of the Dusk Guard, an elite unit of Equestria's Royal Guard. She comes from VikingZX's Dusk Guard Saga, which is a literal epic (in the literary sense) that I wholeheartedly recommend reading.

She is taking a semi-unscheduled snooze on a clear patch of her workshop's floor.

This is probably my most ambitious piece so far, and my best-looking one that isn't a trace. I tried some new things with posing and shading, such as putting the entire group of highlights on a single gradient of opacity originating from the image's main light source.

This pic was made entirely in Ponyscape, a sadly defunct fork of Inkscape that I happen to love.

I'd rather people didn't use this picture, aside from looking at it, as I'm using it for a contest. After September 2015, though, I figure it's fair game.

I'm still amused by Sky Bolt gnawing on the wrench in her sleep.

Hooray for adorableness that I helped bring into existence!

Yeah, I'm surprised she found a clear spot as wel--- HEY LOOK, A DEMONIC DUCK!

Looks shiftily from side to side.
