Sunset Motocross Outfit sketch by mayorlight Sunset Motocross Outfit sketch by mayorlight
An ink sketch of Sunset Shimmer in her motocross outfit from the upcoming Friendship Games movie, which I did at the So Cal Brony potluck in Garden Grove last month.

Sunset: "Let's do this!"

Straight ink, no pencil.

Those sharp ink lines make for a striking effect. Reminds me of some of the 70s b&w comics.

I remember seeing a few of those - some of the grittier stuff. I've also tempted to experiment with more "solid shadows" like those seen in film noir stories.

If only the original looked as good as this! Drawn like this, her outfit looks like something out of a militaristic anime -- and I mean that as a compliment.

Thanks a bunch! :)

I did reference a promotional image of her in this outfit - perhaps the monochrome gives it that "combat ready" look.

Is the original derpibooru.org/927869 , or something else from that trailer? It looks like it.

I agree that the monochrome heightens the militaristic feel of the outfit; you can see Sunset's Mandarin collar and epaluets, but you can't see that they're purple, and it looks like she's wearing jodhpurs instead of tights... Even in the original, though, I can definitely imagine Sunset favoring a "Space Battleship Yamato" sort of look.

Yep, it is her outfit from the trailer, although I actually referenced this pic:  derpiboo.ru/949278 .

Ectophase activate!

Only kidding! XD

Haven't watched much of the original version Kamen Rider, but I can see Sunset and Rainbow as Hongo and Ichimonji.

For some reason, it has me thinking if she were to wear that if she ever decide to take up a career in Turbo Dueling. Sorry. Having Yugioh vibes. Well done with this piece.

Hah! I completely forgot about that whole glove thing.

Yeah, she could very well be staring down Kaiba himself!

Kinda makes me wonder what kind of budget Canterlot High has in order to supply it, along with the bike.
