Portrait of Sunset Shimmer by mayorlight Portrait of Sunset Shimmer by mayorlight
It had been a LONG time since I last pulled out my Prismacolor pencils. I decided to use them to color this portrait of Sunset Shimmer I penciled during my break at work earlier today.

I also wanted to do something different from my usual "big eyes, small mouth" look, which is why I defined her nose and lips a little bit more.

I will be donating the original piece, 5x7" framed, to the raffle prize pool at a So Cal Brony Potluck I'm attending tomorrow.

Working Music: Cafeteria Song (various languages)

I like the character of the colors- that little bit of extra texture helps to set things up nicely.

Thanks. It was quite a change of pace rendering with traditional media.

Believe me, you're not alone. One acquaintance remarked how "weird" this piece looks (ha ha!). It was fun to experiment though. :)

Awesome design of the character and the coloring is gorgeous!  Your coloring gives her a sunset like movement in her hair...love how you captured that.  Well done!! Clap

Thank you Natalie! :)

I've really come to like the gradients that are possible with colored pencil - an effect I hope to replicate on the digital end soon.
