Trixie or Treat REDUX! by Drewdini Trixie or Treat REDUX! by Drewdini
Was gonna wait til Halloween to upload this, but then I said, "Screw it. I'm not waiting that long. :iconfliptableplz:"

You guys may remember this concept from a few years back, when I uploaded this little beauty



This was actually my favorite piece out of my Sketchy Art folder, and I was a little disappointed that it didn't get the vector treatment it deserved. Of course, looking at it now with its horrible proportions, I couldn't just up and vector the one I had there, because I'd spend way too much time tweaking it.

So much time, in fact, I decided it'd be easier just to redraw the whole thing.

So this piece here is not only a rehash of an old idea, but it's also sort of an attempt on my part to develop my own personal style for pony-draw. Gotta say, I'm pleased with the result. The body doesn't look all that different, and the face is where I've made the majority of style-shifting, but in my opinion, the standard pony body style works just fine with my own personal face style.

I dunno though. Maybe I'll keep adapting it. :shrug:

The best part about this piece here though is it wasn't uploaded in the MIDDLE OF FREAKING DECEMBER, making it the most timely of my Halloween arts to-date. Enjizzoy! Ugh... Never saying that ever again. XP

EDIT: Cropped a little bit. ^^;

EDIT II: Oh, and before I forget, I didn't spend anytoo much time working on the background. I kind of just shamelessly ripped it from here and added some Halloweeny decorations to it. So thank you, =mandydax for making my job that much easier! ;)

EDIT III, REVENGE OF THE UNEDITED: Ooh, hey! Check out the human version of this scene, courtesy of *Ric-M

Haha! :rofl: Good one, Trixie! *sighs and wipes a tear* Ah, why is it so much fun to troll Twilight? Looks like Trixie is on the "doesn't-know-who-Twilight-is-dressed-as-for-Nightmare-Night" bandwagon ;)

This is a total transformation from your original piece. Look at how far you've come! Great job :clap: Kudos to mandydax for that stellar background.

I love Trixie's expression and Twilight's is hilarious, too :XD: Just get used to being second best to the Great and Powerful Trixie, Twilight, and life would be so much easier.

Oh, and for the record *shifty eyes* I like Trixie's costume waaaay better.

*ahem* Now, let me take my leave before Dumbleditz over there turns me into a toad or something :sprint: Ah damn, too late...

Thanks for the laughs *ribbit* :)

This is by far the best comment I've received on this piece yet! Thank you, and sorry it's taken me so long to reply. I'm not used to processing so much commentary. :XD:

So yeah, that's kind of what this pic came out of. I watched the Luna Eclipsed episode back in season 2 and was frustrated to find that nopony thought Twilight was dressed up as Trixie. When her costume is a pointy hat and a cape, how could it be a more obvious assumption? So then I thought since it would be funny, Trixie should be the one to make that mistake, and not only be unamused by it but also be dressed up in an even more crude Twilight costume. :XD:

Yeah, I'm really proud of this one, and I think it's one of my, if not the, most popular of my "original" MLP stuff. I think everything about it turned out awesome, and there's nothing about it I'd go back and change. And yeah, that background was a HUGE help. All's it needed was some halloweeny decorations, and it was ready to go! So much work off my shoulders haha. Do you know where else I used this background? ;)

The expressions were definitely one thing I really wanted to nail. I feel the face conveys a character's emotions better than anything else, so I wanted to make sure these faces really sold the concept, and I think they did just that. :)

HERESY! Haha Nah, jk. :P

Hey, no problem. Thank you for all the kind words, and Good luck with... being a toad.

:icontrixieneighsayersplz: Uh! Clearly, Trixie's costume is flawless! After all, she was the one who made it with her own two hooves.
:iconmlpsnipsplz::iconmlpsnailsplz: Hey!
:icontrixiesoplz: With... a little bit of help from some less-important ponies. :icontrixieconfident: Obvously, what's happening here is Trixies costume is so maginificent, :icongreatpowerfultrixie: so unbelievably amazing, :iconmlptrixieplz: that your feeble pony mind can't even process it. It's almost sad to Trixie that you can't comprehend her costume in its full glory.
:icontwilightfacehoofplz: Trixie, you're wearing a wig and a bowtie.
:icontrixiecalmplz: Your point, Sparkle?
:icontwilightshoutplz: It's not a good costume! You don't look like me!
:icontrixieangryplz: Oh, go soak your head.

*Basically, commoners. It's a condescending term that puts the one using it at an implied higher social status than whoever they're using against, essentially implying they're better than the so-called "plebeians". And... I actually spelled it wrong the first time. It's plebeian. ^^;*
:icontrixiesoplz: Well, aren't you special? Too bad there's no photgraphic evidence, or Trixie might actually be inclined to consider your claims. :icontrixieconfident: Even if you did have photos, I'm sure whatever you've come up with for your so-called "costumes" can't even come close to the authenticity of Trixie's costume.
:icontwilightshoutplz: IT'S A WIG AND BOWTIE!

hehe I think I saw this a bit before.. can't remember where.. but yesh!!  So much win  XD  hehe poor Twilight, nopony seems to know Starswirl as well as she does.. I was just on the floor laughing when this season they had the whole "Starswirl the bearded traveling museum." For one, it was obviously a play on the fandom or any fandom really, with all the cosplays and props on display heh, and two the fact there are actually more ponies that know of Starswirl and three it kinda made me wonder if, cause of the name, they were doing a small homage to the traveling pony museum. hehe   Very funny and great art! :D

Trixie should take that as a compliment. Dunno about the bells, but the beard implies wisdom, and experience!................. but then again it also implies Trixie's an old fart XDD

Trixie is a humble pony, and if you don't think so, you can turn around and trot away, because Trixie is done wasting her time with you.
