Ohmygosh, I have lots of love for this one. Much like your Fluttershy one,  love how this one kind of follows that in a way, as you have Pinkie in her element, in a place that's her representation of her self and she has an outfit on too that's quite adorable and fitting for her. Blue with Pinkie is just the best thing and it always works super well! Pinkie is super sweet in here, and not because of all the candy, but the welcoming smile is there and you can get that positive feeling just from how you portrayed her! Those eyes are really fulfilling and accompanied with that smile, give you joy and happiness! As always, you excel at doing Pinkie's mane. I feel that you do it in a really unique way, in your style, of which can't be recreated by others, and that's so special and I can't help but gush when you see those textures and the softness you bring. The outfit overall is the best ahh and I love the flouncy approach that you went for it! The little creases and the lining and everything to give it that non-flat look! It's so wonderfully done! The way that her hooves sidle against one another, just those little things are so fulfilling. Then there's THAT sugary background and OMG, you did a wonderful job with that. You have the treats come to life and bringing it to full size and it really gives off that Pinkie Pie atmosphere so well! The vibrant colors and the softness, it's all so well done and is so fitting for her. <333333333

Thanks a lot (as always), Neverlast! You're right, I was definitely going for similar route for this one as I did on the last Fluttershy picture. Wanted to capture them in their most comfortable environments, and they were also both inspired by adorable outfits from the show ^^
Haha, I always do try to make the eyes stand out and feel very vivid- I find they bring the face out a lot, and that's a great thing to have.
And yes! Pinkie's mane is a crazy one, and it took a few pictures for me to figure out how to do her hair. Glad you can enjoy it now though! :D
Gotta have those sweets or Pinkie wouldn't be in natural habitat :^) Thank you again for the lovely comment! <33

Mmmm Mmm!! Sweet drawing XD
I wanna know where you get all your ideas from. How do you not run out of ideas to paint?!?!
VanillaGhosties's avatar
Thank you!
Well there’s a few ways actually. If I’m enjoying something at the time, sometimes I’ll draw based on that. Sometimes a fun idea just pops in my head and I’ll write it down on my drawing ideas list, which I can check back on anytime I’m lacking in ideas. Other times, I’m inspired by other art I really like. And you already know about how my music influences my drawing ideas too.
Last but not least, I like to go through a collection of outfits used in MLP and see which one I’d want to draw. Someone made a whole collection of them right here, which has been amazingly helpful: www.reddit.com/r/mylittlepony/…

That’s most of it- though at times I still have trouble coming up with what I want to draw anyways =P
What about you? Where your ideas come from hmmmmmmmmm? :^)

Aaaanddd bookmarking that reddit post with the outfits XD I really should dive into some clothing!
I follow a very similar inspiration path as you. Pretty much the same with the exception of the 
MLP clothing thing (but defs adding that to my list now). And recently with the introduction of the
collaborative sketches (drawpile), it's been getting easier XD 

All that said... Still doesnt explain how you're brimming with ideas when I do a very similar thing XD
I tell you, you're a natural!
VanillaGhosties's avatar
Yes, clothing is super fun! And I hear ya, that collection has been incredibly helpful to me ^^
Ahh, well good to hear! Also, drawpile is super nice as well, I love when we get to do those things c:

Haha, I dunno about that- I do always have some ideas ready to go, but sometimes I’ll still get stuck and not know what to draw. I feel like my ideas are less inspired than they used to be, but I still always do enjoy drawing them out, so it’s all good~

I personally really like Celestia in Greek inspired clothing. Maybe I'll do that someday XD

You bet! I love it when everyone's just chilling and slowly working on sketches and then you drop into the server and whoop up a storm of drawings. It's absolutely brilliant, what you're able to do XD just proves my point that you're brimming with ideas!
VanillaGhosties's avatar
Please do, that’s such a great and fitting idea!

Haha nah, we’re all just having a good time- we all do some nice sketchies on em :^)
I’m just super loose and draw the first thing that comes to mind =P
LolliponyArt's avatar
Teach the way of looseness. I too would like to whip up a storm of sketches on horsepiles
