This time i managed to snatch a sketch from none other than VanillaGhosties who was so kind to let me color it :D His sketches have a very unique feel to them, as soon as i saw that expression and that pose i fell in love with it. Working on it was really fun and interesting, i also got to try some new things given the colorful background. I have to say, i'm really happy with how his style and my colors work together.

Maybe we'll try the opposite next time since he is absolutely amazing with colors too! :D

I don't think i have to tell you but if you're not watching him already, go do so now! :D

Did you know this is on Derpibooru? www.derpibooru.org/1732892

A lot of the people there think the upper part of AJ's back-right leg is between her hind legs and a dick. What do you think of that?

That's unfortunate and obviously totally unintended, to me that's clearly a knee or i wouldn't have posted it in that state...but if that's what people think of it, there isn't much i can do

I did for a split second at a glance.

There are 2 reasons for it:

1. It looks segmented. When you look at the left hind leg, the upper and lower halves are blended together, so it looks like 1 thing, but the right hind leg has a line separating these halves, so the upper portion looks like a separate thing.

2. The coloring. The orange in the upper portion of the leg is noticeably bigger than it is in the lower portion, making that part an eye catcher, especially since there's much less of it in the lower portion, causing it to stick out less. The shading on it is also lighter than the shading for the lower portion, causing it to pop more while the other part blends in.

I guarantee you that if these things had been changed, you would not be getting this reaction.

I've been told about the first point before, the second one i didn't think of but i guess that could be part of the reason too...i just never really noticed anything wrong with it so obviously i didn't think about changing it, i'll be more careful next time.

Thanks for the feedback tho :D

You're welcome. I think saying there's something "wrong" is a bit harsh. It's just that at a glance...

Dang... seems no one wants to do one though, but then I see them doing them with everyone else, kind of killing my mood to do one anyway

I'm sure that's not true, many people are just shy, try to ask your friends and i'm sure you'll find plenty of people to have a collaboration with :D remember that Friendship is Magic :D

I've asked plenty of mutual artists, I got tired of asking sketching ones since they put in little effort as I pour my heart into it tbh...
