Say what now?!
Base by :iconcrazyaya:
Background by :iconboneswolbach:

Here's something that I'd thought would be cute to make which happens to be Rainbow Dash talking to someone off screen and this off screen pony asks Rainbow Dash something that pretty much confused her.

So for a while now, a pic of Rainbow Dash had been in my head because I've been wanting to make pics of ponies from the show which some people really like to see how I am able to make them in my own art style and those pics always seem to be the ones that somehow get the most attention just because of the way I make them. ^^ Oh and yeah, I'm struggling yet once again with art cause I there are of course other things in my life that I have to work on as well but still, I'm always trying as hard as I can to make more and more art as the time comes.


As most of you know, it's no surprise that Rainbow Dash is obviously my favorite pony out of the mane 6 bunch cause she actually represents me in real life. Awesome.... and sometimes lazy too just like Dash is at times. Heck I actually still have the first Rainbow Dash shirt I bought back when I started watching the show in 2013 (which in case anyone is wondering, it is a black shirt that has Rainbow Dash on it with the words, "20% Cooler" beneath her, and yes this shirt is still in perfect condition and still fits me very well to this day) and I also still have the first Rainbow Dash sketch I did too (which I probably might redraw sometime in the future and color it in when I have the time to do it. ^^).


But lets get into the drawing shall we?

Now there's one thing that I think should be put on here. After the MLP Movie was released in theaters last year, the way I make ponies would change quite a bit because in the MLP Movie, characters like Rainbow Dash have their mane outlines colored differently. Usually in the show, the outline of her mane was a light blue while in the movie, each color would have its own separate dark colored outline and this actually made the shading (which I had at the time) look much more better and really made the ponies I made in art look much more adorable and awesome and so this is something that I often still use today to any pony or character that has dark hair with a bright outline. While on the topic of the MLP Movie, from that day forward, the way I make Rainbow Dash will always be based on her appearance from the MLP Movie because the sharp points in her mane really give out quite a bit of detail to Rainbow Dash and I really like the way Rainbow Dash turns out with this. ^^ So for future pics to come, I will always have the sharp points be included in Rainbow Dash's mane.

Aside from that, the shading on Rainbow Dash actually looks pretty awesome if not adorable in my opinion. I would say that this would have to be one of the most adorable pics I've made with the use of shading. If I had to say where the shading looks great on Rainbow Dash looks the best, it would definitely have to be her mane and this combined with the way I mane Dash's mane being based on the MLP Movie actually gives the mane quite a bit of depth into it. I truly love it very much.

Another thing I love about Rainbow Dash was the eyes. The original base I used to make Rainbow Dash for this pic had some bitmap shadows on the yes which I originally planned on removing though it made Dashie look a bit worse so I kept them in. Once I added a cast shadow from Rainbow Dash's mane, the shadow gave Dash's eyes a really interesting look which I thought was pretty cool and I honestly love it so much. ^^

And finally in most MLP pics I make with characters from the show, I always use a special technique to perfectly make ponies look exactly how they should like in the show, but for Rainbow Dash, I have my own unique way of making her because she's my favorite character and I think I should have my own way of making her in pics. ^^

I planned on including a background of Cloudsdale or Rainbow Dash's room but there really weren't any great pictures of both locations. So in the end, I went with a pic of Ponyville which looks great by the way. ^^


Overall, I really think Rainbow Dash turned out very awesome in this pic and that's what really makes me very happy. I'm now starting to see that when I use my shading skills on characters from the actual show, it makes them look either adorable or awesome (of course that depends on the character I make)!


But anyways, enjoy this 20% Cool pic. ^^

Dearies, I think I have a hunch on where to go!

Here's something that I've been wanting to make since the beginning of 2018 and that is Prancy Drew from the MLP IDW comics. ^^

Now before I go into full detail about how Prancy Drew looks like up above, I'd like to talk about something related to the MLP IDW comics first. The idea of making ponies from the IDW comics has been in my head for a very long time and the exact time of when I thought of making them was unknown but a while back I went to a book store at the mall one day and decided to look through an MLP IDW book, and I say book because these ones are filled with past MLP IDW comics and they're pretty huge (in fact, almost all of the MLP IDW comics I have are in these books and I've found a lot of interesting stuff in them). So in one issue I looked at one time (which was about Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon), the Cutie Mark Crusaders are trying to win a scavenger hunt to get a prize which happens to be tickets to a concert that Applejack loves to go and watch. Diamond Tiara doesn't know about this and she wants to win the scavenger hunt so she could get the prize, but it requires a team of 3. Diamond Tiara then goes home to ask her father, Filthy Rich to call someone to join her team. Filthy agrees and calls a detective to join Diamond Tiara's team and that of course happens to be Prancy Drew.


Arighty, now let's get into the pic!

I typically don't add shading to character from the IDW comics usually because I wanna show how the character would look like if they were in the actual show so I didn't add them to Prancy up above and I think she still looks very adorable without the shading and her colors look very bright and bold which is just the way I wanted the colors to be. I did use the colors from screenshots of her in the comics which I think look really nice on her though this only applies to her hair and hat (I think) because the rest of her colors were altered so that they'd look a lot better. ^^

Now I'm pretty sure almost everyone will immediately know who Prancy Drew looks like. Yeah, back when I started reading the MLP IDW comics, I found out that every issue is littered with pop culture references with characters, quotes, actions that some of the characters do, heck even some of the covers of the comics reference other pop culture media. At the time, I literally thought that this probably one of the most insane things I found out about when I started to dig into the MLP IDW comics and I'm still surprised about it to this very day as more and more MLP comics come out, there's more references in to recent pop culture in the more recent issues. So about Prancy Drew, she's of course clearly based on Velma Dinkly from Scooby-Doo and I actually really like the way Prancy is designed. ^^ The way I had to make her clothes was pretty tricky for some reason as it required some complicated layering to make Prancy look perfect, this mostly had to with her glasses due to the way they were designed but I was able to add them to Prancy's eyes perfectly and she looks very cute! The sweater wasn't hard though making the hat for Prancy was indeed a bit tough because once I made the hat, I had to angle and resize it in Photoshop so that it can fit onto Prancy's head. The problem was that when I tried this, it made the bitmap MS Paint outline of the hat a lot more messy but like the hardworking art I am, I of course decided to work as hard as I could to clean up the hat and put it on Prancy's head and sure enough, I was able to and she looks really adorable with it!


I think Prancy Drew really turned out great in the end and not only that but this has of course got me wondering on making more ponies that are only seen in the IDW comics as I found a lot more ponies in these comics that sure look really awesome to make using pony bases!


But anyways enjoy!

Here's something I felt like making because I haven't made anything in a really long time now due to things I'm doing in my normal everyday life. ^^


For a while now, I've been wanting to make a pic of Countess Coloratura because I really like her alternate design when she's a pop singer. Yes, I still love her other regular design when she has her blue mane and tail in case anyone is wondering! ^^ I still remember the first time I saw her when looking around for random MLP YouTube videos. Yep, I listened to both of the songs that Rara/Countess sings in the episode (to which I thought was really awesome and sweet. ^^) and at that time I really wanted to make a pic of both versions of Rara/Countess that appeared in that episode though at the time, I pretty much couldn't pull it off due to how complicated it was to make the two long ago but since my art skills have improved, I was able to finally make Countess Coloratura and she looks really awesome! I especially love the way her ponytail turned out once I finished.

As with most MLP pics, I of course used my own special technique to perfectly make Countess Coloratura though one thing that I made a bit different was the transparent face veil that Countess wears. I thought the original design for it looked a bit off when I tried to include it in the pic up above so what I did was make an original design for it and I actually like it a lot. To me the face veil looks more like what a hardcore pop star singer would have but that's just my opinion, I just really like the lager more rounded design. I think the shading on the face veil looks really nice and a bit realistic from my perspective. One thing I couldn't include was the purple clothes that Countess wears and the reason for that was that despite that I'm very good at making clothes for ponies in previous pics, trying to make Countess' clothes was actually kinda difficult to make due to the insane amount of detail it has. Yeah, I always try to add the best amount of detail to every pic I make but even without the clothes, Countess still looks pretty good in my opinion. ^^

The background took a while to think of because I knew fro that start that I wanted it to be a stage background like how it was in the actual episode though I couldn't find anything that look close to what I wanted to use for the background of the pic. In the end, I decided to make a background of my own cause I thought it would be much better. For some reason, I somehow found making this background a bit challenging but thankfully I was able to make something that looked pretty cool and I liked it. ^^ I added some background glowing lights along with some blue fire that launching out from nowhere like how some singing rock stages have and although it looks a bit simple, I kinda liked it. Yes, I always have a hard time trying to make backgrounds of my own but that's pretty much how I'm able to make them. :)

Anyways, I think Rara/Countess Coloratura turned out very awesome as the sound of thunder and..... yeah. That's pretty much all I have to say about the pic! ^^


But anyways enjoy!
