Inktober 2017 : Empress Twi by NCMares Inktober 2017 : Empress Twi by NCMares

It’s go time baby! I’m excited to (hopefully) not suck at inks when we’re done! Don’t worry, it won’t all be pony. Maybe.

I’ve wanted to draw that Empress Twi again for a bit. I can’t help it, the concept of Twilight snapping is just wicked cool. :ohnoes:

Totally based on one of my top favorite pony images. The tail armor is sick, agh!

So, uh, Empress, are you in the market for an ally? Henchman? Lackey? Minion? Listen, I'll take whatever title I can get, just please let me work for you!

Thanks! And yea it was my first time in awhile in doin it so it's good practice to keep it up, surprised I still remembered so much xD The colors were based on the original art that inspired yours :3 and the stone pieces were because they looked more thick and it gives it a nice feel and variance.

As I said before in the digital variant, as I will always say, this is the most badass, good looking evil version of Twilight I've ever seen.
Even my version is insignificant to yours.

It's tougher to tell here, but I have it being in a constant state of magic overload, as if she's bursting at the seams with energy. Little glow bits are always flaking away too. :)

Oh, I thought you were saying the drawing was bad too. The way you worded it didn't give me the impression you meant Twilights day or whatever.

That is a cool Twilight. I wonder how she would look like, full grown adult (like the older princesses).

PS : Here is another badass Twilight pic if you are interested, NCMares:
