MLP - Skylight

Please and thank you for viewing, +favorite, commenting, critiquing and/or even sharing, means a whole lot to me~

Well, here's my January drawing, I paid attention to shading/lighting as much as I did in "MLP - Together", and as well, since I revealed the secrets to how I draw my eye-style, I decided to kick it up a notch to test out a more advanced style.

Using that new line-tool I used in "MLP - Wandering", but apparently I naturally draw at this line-width, not how I did the other drawing. If I were to tone the size down then I could imitate the thin-line style of the other drawing again 'though some more potentially for future drawings.

I wanted to pair Twily and Dashie together again, 'though not blatantly shipping for this drawing, (but I suppose my initial intention was shipping). Just having the two peacefully talking together on a walk, something simple for me to practice more on the coloring and less on any fancy positioning/poses/backgrounds and such.

It really is pretty simple, in a way - (gonna use it as a wallpaper now~)

Approximate Time to Complete : 5~6 hours

I like this deviation very much. Everything about this is great, well, mostly everything. What is the point of a critique you you don't point out how one can improve? I digress. the little details on the mane and wings, they seem a bit off to me. I understand that you wanted these details to show what you can do, and that's a good thing. The problem I have is that it seems too realistic for the pastel coloured ponies. The point of G4 is not to be realistic, but to be cartoon-like. I would have preferred more show-accurate manes and wings. That however, is my own opinion.

Thanks for the critique~

Ah well, but it's a style I aimed for, semi-realistic while still pertaining the colorful nature of the ponies. I wasn't really aiming to completely be like the show and many of my most favorite MLP artists draw in a semi-realistic style (occasional fur puffs, more attention to anatomy/muscle-structure, mane/tail more realistic, wings more realistic, etc).

I didn't really go full-out detailed either 'though (I tried a more realistic mane/tail style than this before in an old drawing, but it stood out too much to me, this is a personal opinion but I find this a good balance), the outlines are simple for the wings and mane after all and the effects were also actually kinda quickly added.

I felt the show-style wings were 'too' simple as it was hard to draw some of the more complex wing positions because the show-style wings aren't built into 3 obvious sections.

You know, when you say that, it makes me feel like an assh***.

No worries~ I know lots of people prefer the show-style after all, and it's better mentioning it then not saying anything

Now something I can note - thanks to a comment by another and some plan shifting, I plan on trying out some drawings in my older style (before I learned most of this fancy detail additions) so I hope you'll enjoy seeing those when I get to them~
