Shining in the spotlight!

Here's something I felt like making because I was in the mood to make a pic for someone that I've been friend with for quite a long time now and not only that but I also made it cause it's her birthday. ^^

Alrighty, it has been 2 years since I made a pic for this friend of mine and though while I can’t explain why, one thing I would like to mention was that the last pic I made had much lower quality but around that time was when my art started to attract a lot more attention which made me very happy. ^u^ Once my art improved greatly, that was when I decided to make top notch awesome MLP pics using bases and this is what I’ve been using to make the pony art I do today. ^^

I don’t have much to say about this pic I made but one thing I’d like to mention was that this pic was actually very fun to make. I have said this in a previous pic that I really love to make pony OCs that I haven’t made in a very long time and see how they look like with the current art skills that I have right now so it made me wonder how Showtime would look like using my current art skills. I of course used every color from the reference pic that my friend made so long ago instead of my own pics for her because I thought it would look perfect and sure enough, Showtime looked awesome! I would say that she looks a bit younger and that’s because of the base I used. Still, Showtime look very great and to be honest with everyone, I could somehow see Showtime as Thunder’s sister for some reason! Hehe! I think it has something to do with the fact that they have a similar appearance with their manes. ^^

Two things I wanted to add to Showtime were a scarf and a fedora hat but I of course had trouble with the way the fedora and scarf were designed so in the end, I only left the spiked bracelet which I honestly think it looks very cool. ^u^

And finally I wanted to use a background that I thought would’ve been perfect for Showtime and I even went as far as adding faded lights from above her which I think looks very good and while I don’t know much about what Showtime does, I thought these lights would perfect to use in the pic. ^^

Anyways I had a fun time making this quick little birthday pic for a friend I’ve had for a really long time and I really hope she likes the pic I made for her just like how much I liked making the pic. ^^

And maybe sometime in the future, I think I’ll make another friend of mine that I pretty much haven’t seen in a really long time now.


But anyways enjoy!

Everything else all done by :iconthunder-artist:

Here’s something really special that I have been working on for quite a while now and my word I have so much to talk about this pic!

(PLEASE READ!)

So as most of you know, I am a huge fan of the game, Them’s Fightin’ Herds which if some of you don’t know what it is, it is a fighting that uses Lauren Faust’s :iconfyre-flye: MLP art style which makes the characters look very adorable and awesome. I was one of those people who were very interested in playing the game back in September. Before the game had come out, I thought of making some art of the game before the game officially came out on Steam. Oh yeah, I wanna mention that on the day the game was supposed to come out, I was literally waiting for minutes until the buy option appeared (which I was literally mashing the select button on my computer mouse like crazy once it had became available!)

Now about the artwork that I did before the game had released, I was only able to make Oleander as she was a unicorn and the other characters were different animals so that meant that I could only make art of Oleander and for a while after my last Them’s Fightin’ Herds pic, I was thinking on making the other characters. A while later on March 19th, that was when I was in the mood to draw Pom. The way Pom has turned out was so adorable that I actually wanted to digitally color her in and I wanted to post the picture of her on here! But that was when I started to think about the other characters as the days and nights passed. One day I said to myself, “Let’s try drawing Velvet” so I of course did and I somehow did not like the was sure turned out. Sure it looked exactly like Velvet but I didn’t like the simple pose she was doing so that was when I put that drawing of her away. It wouldn’t be until a while later that I would start to draw Paprika and Arizona while I was relaxing at home doing nothing. Those two turned out very great and adorable at the same time! A week after that, was when I wanted to draw Oleander and she was a very fun one to draw and she turned out pretty adorable. I made her look happy instead of looking mad like how she does in the actual game. Around that same time was when I decided to draw Velvet again and she turned out much better than my previous drawing of her so I kept it. Finally, we come to Tianhuo who which I drew during a really long power outage! With all that being said, I have completed drawing every character from Them’s Fightin’ Herds in my own style of art and I was ready to digitally color them all in.


Now I'm going to start talking about how my progress went through these characters as time went by starting with the first character I drew and ending with the last one.


Pom: Pom was by far the easiest character to draw because of how small she was compared to the other characters. For the posing, I wanted something that showed Pom's happy side (despite that she's the shy one out of all the characters). As I mentioned up above, I had previously made a solo picture of Pom prior to working on the collab. I used that same render of Pom from the solo pic and included it on here. She doesn't look very different compared to my solo pic of her, apart from some minor shading adjustments.


Paprika: Paprika was a pretty tough one to make and this mostly had to do with her long neck and her body. What I did to make Paprika easier was that I only drew her from her head to her fluffy chest. Yeah, I couldn't draw her body because of difficulty reasons as that part was just too big to fit on the paper I drew Paprika on and trying to make a separate drawing with Paprika's body would've made things a lot more difficult. This is why she's behind every other character to hide the missing details parts of Paprika. But other than that, Paprika still looks very adorable like how she should be! ^^


Arizona: Arizona was a very easy character to draw despite the amount of detail that she has. One thing I would like to mention is that I actually made a drawing of Arizona long ago which looked very awesome but it didn't include her body but instead, just her head so I pretty much left that sketch alone until I drew her again for the collab pic up above. The posing for Arizona mimics the pose she does in her official artwork though the way I made it was much more adorable so that it fits the art style for the collab. I would say she's a bit shorter but she still looks great!


Oleander: Oleander was more of in the middle in terms of difficulty. At times I would make her look perfect but she would always end up way too big and when I tried to make her smaller, she would be more difficult What made Oleander hard was the way her head and her mouth are positioned. After many failed attempts, that was when I had to look up reference of Oleander online and after looking through enough reference, I was able to finally draw Oleander's mouth and head and that put a big smile on my face. Her mane looks beautiful and the way I made her body just looks perfect!

Of course besides Oleander, I couldn't leave out FHTING though unlike Oleander, I was wondering how I could include FHTING in the picture together with Oleander because I knew that at first, he would've been way too big to add in the collab. That was when I wanted to include him as the book but even with that, I had lots of trouble because there wasn't much reference on how I wanted Oleander's book to turn out. In the end, I left FTHING out of the picture.


Velvet: Velvet was a really tough one. While her body and floof were easy to draw, what really made Velvet tough was her head because it was angled much like Oleander’s head was. As I mentioned above, I did draw a pic of Velvet prior to the one I included for the final pic and in that drawing, I was able to make Velvet’s head perfect but since the drawing wasn’t that big, I had to draw Velvet again and I did so seconds after I finished drawing Oleander. I really love the pose that Velvet is doing and this pose was actually from one frame of a gif pic I used from her victory animation. I thought that the pose Velvet was doing in that one frame would’ve fit very perfectly with the collab and so I actually drew it in my own art style! ^^ I did have a tough time trying to make Velvet’s face due to the way her eyes are adjusted but I tried my best and I think they look great on her. ^u^


Tianhuo: Tianhuo was an easy one to draw and as most of you know, I love drawing dragons so Tianhuo was a piece of cake! Like Paprika, Tianhuo’s full body wasn’t drawn as she was getting too big on the paper and this prevented me from adding the bottom part of her legs but even without them, Tianhuo still looks awesome and that’s what makes me happy! Something that I wanted to add to Tianhuo was that I originally wanted her mane and wings to glow like actual fire. This would’ve actually been really cool but due to the insane amount of slowdowns Photoshop got from trying to do this, I wasn’t able to include it but it would’ve actually been awesome! Also Tianhuo is my favorite character to play as in this game!



My goodness! That covers all of the characters for the pic and now let’s take a peek at the background that they’re in. In an earlier version of this pic, the background was originally more colorful and the checkered floor was black and red. I thought this would’ve been a really nice background but when I started playing in the training stage in Them’s Fightin’ Herds, I thought that the colors from that stage would fit the pic more better. I later changed the background to be much more darker and the checkered floor was changed to black and dark blue.


I just wanna say that I am very happy that I was able to spend months working on an amazing pic for an awesome game that I love very much. The amount of work that I put into this pic was just insane! All of the characters are from original Them’s Fightin’ Herds sketches that I made all myself and having to digitally color them in was tough but very fun! Then when the time came to add shading to all of the characters, I knew from the beginning that this was going to be the most insane part that I was going to work on! Once I had finished adding the shading to the characters, I was just left in complete surprise and happiness because of just how everyone turned out. All of them looked adorable and cute! Just like how I imagined them to be from the very beginning!

I am not going to lie, making this incredible pic starting from March and finishing it in July was totally worth it! I wanted to push the limits to make something very hard that in the end would turn out very awesome and that right there puts a huge smile on my face from all of the work and effort I put into the pic! Because of my awesome artistic skills, I really wanted to make this pic very special. I am very glad that I spent a couple of months working on.

I would love to give a special thanks to Mane6 and of course the awesome Lauren Faust :iconfyre-flye: for making such an awesome game that inspired me to make this awesome masterpiece! All of you are very talented and amazing. That really puts a smile on my face. :)


But as always, with every other pic, enjoy this incredible masterpiece!

Hold me Starlight! I'm scared!

Here’s something pretty funny I felt like making and because I was in the mood to make a pic with ponies from the actual show. ^^

So from what I know, Starlight wanted to go out on a peaceful walk in the forest with Trixie at night and while walking, Trixie finds an old castle and she decides to go and see what secrets are hidden inside. Starlight says that it’s a bad idea but Trixie somehow convinces Starlight to go in the castle with her. Feeling a bit angered, Starlight agrees to go in the castle with Trixie. While inside, they stumble across som old books, furniture, and some rubble which made the moonlight shine inside some of the rooms and hallways. As the two unicorns were walking, Trixie found a heavy door that seemed to be locked. She used her strong magician magic to get the door to open and with the help of Starlight who was still angry, they were able to open the door. Beyond the door was a hallway leading to nothing but an endless black void of darkness. Like before, Starlight didn’t like the idea of going in and of course, Trixie wanted to know what was in there so she went in the dark hallway with no problem... that was until Trixie saw something that made her run back to Starlight in fear. Starlight and Trixie then quickly shut and locked the door before whatever Trixie saw came out. Starlight was of course still angry and she told Trixie that she just wanted a peaceful walk through the night instead of going into a castle. Trixie really didn’t care and after all of that, they both continued their walk through the forest at night.


Now that the story is out of the way, let’s get to the details of the pic!

Now if some of you know, I tend to use a special technique to make ponies from the show whenever I want to make them using bases but for this pic, I decided not to use my special technique. This usually makes the pic much more harder to make but the way Trixie and Starlight’s manes are designed, I had no problem making their manes and I had lots of fun making both of them. Starlight was harder to make than Trixie because of the back mane ponytail that she has but I tried my hardest and Starlight looks adorable! ^^ I should mention that the base I used to make both Starlight and Trixie is just perfect! It matches their personalities very well and that of course puts a smile on my face. ^^

As for the shading, all of that went very well though I somehow found it very difficult with Starlight for some reason but I was able to make the shading for Starlight look great. :)

Something that I added in this pic that I don’t usually add is adjusting the brightness or darkness of the characters. I used that for this pic because Starlight and Trixie are in a dark environment and I have to say that I think it look great! ^u^


But anyways I had fun making this funny little pic of Starlight and Trixie and as always, more pics featuring ponies from the show will come in the future!


But anyways enjoy! Now I can finally relax! :)

I am glad you want to make more console ponies pictures sometimes.
Also, I’m making another picture with Thunder.
