Twilght, finally by PaintingJo Twilght, finally by PaintingJo
Won't you look at that! I finally finished a drawing of her at last!
Yeah, in the past, I've made mulitple attempts to draw her, but never finished a single one, until now.

I've been following a workflow slightly different from what I would've been naturally going for, and it went so well! Definitely keeping it unless I find a better one.
I have also watched a couple videos about color and digital painting. I just started implementing ambient occlusion and using overpaint layers for finishing details. This is wonderful.

All in all however, this drawing took me A LOT of time and I'm really sad that I forgot to record it. That would've made for an awesome speedpaint. I spent roughly around 10-15-20 hours on it and am very proud of the result.

Nice work, but...there's something about her eyes that's....vaguely unsettling....disturbing somehow....  Can't quite put my finger (or my hoof) on what it is, though...  Otherwise, fine work.

Yeah, I get you, I also noticed that.
It's probably the pupils that are just a tad small, giving her a slightly psycho look, and the eyebrows being hidden probably add a bit on it.
Thanks though ^^

Also the lights in eye... i jused used white.... maybe not needed

I just realized I forgot to add the bit of shading around the pupil where the iris curves back into the eye and that's probably why it looks flat, and I could also have made the glares a bit brighter.
I don't think the amount of shading is really what makes a big difference to it, and texture is just a bonus of detail that I wanted to keep at a minimum here to match the rest of the drawing.
Thanks for the insight though

Maybe that's it; 'cuz it does kinda give me a bit of a "Lesson Zero"/"It's About Time" vibe & I kinda feel like Spike did when he said,  "You've been awake for too long, Twilight..."
