Great and green Warming Eve


Boy do I have a lot of catching up to do with new pony episodes  :shakefist: :doh: i missed last weeks so that means double the watching for me now on top of watching the new Hobbit film this Saturday.


With Xmas less then a week away i wanted to do another festive piece with ponies. :)


It’s a little messy ^^: with its finish because I wanted to convey the idea of scale and atmosphere in both the characters and scene with less detail also theres been a lack of submissions this week and i want to get back in to my creative flow before xmas. ;P


Check out my FIM title card project…

New episode card coming soon :eager:

 until next deviation LATERS Bronies :peace:

Drawn in Photoshop CS6 with my Wacom tablet 5 =D

Trixie: Come one, come all! The GRRREAT and Powerful TRRRIXIE has arrived in Ponyville with a bag full of loot--er, Hearth's Warming Eve gifts for all the good little ponies! That includes reformed ponies too, like me and Starlight.
Pinkie: WOO HOO! GIDDYAP HORSIE! Oh, wait a minute. I AM a horsie! But I'm pretending to be a reindeer! Pfff, whatever. WOO HOO! GIDDYAP REINDEER WHO'S REALLY A HORSIE!!!

Huh. Despite my initial surprise, the green background rather suits the artwork's tone, making for a magical Christmas Eve moon.

Where did you get the idea to do this?
JowyB's avatar
uh...just thinking about two of my favourite ponies next to fashion pony ;) lol

No, I mean the combo of happy-go-lucky pastel ponies with that really somber looking background.

oh.....As a freelance artist once you learn about contrasting colours and explore it in depth you take more risks to go against the norm in this case green is not really a christmas colour, let alone a nighttime colour. but i wanted to see if this colour could work with the characters. :)

I'm trying to learn color right now.  Any advice on what to start with?

looking at colour wheels is always the best place to start with colour and i also suggest  you learn about (values)  contrast of black and white  in your art because it can help you define your illustrations and understanding of shadows. in art shadows are never always black just like skies are never completely blue

Trixie look awesome in her Christmas garb and Pinkie is adorable as Rudolph
