Fluttershy Portrait by VanillaGhosties Fluttershy Portrait by VanillaGhosties
I know I've been slower than usual on uploads for a little while now, and that's because I've been splitting my time between painting pony pictures and general drawing practice. I've got a lot to work on from a drawing standpoint, so I've been trying to get more comfortable with it. And when I do, I'll be able to draw even better ponies at a (hopefully) faster pace.

Quick word regarding season 9, the show wrapping up, and my future plans: I'm just gonna keep drawing ponies. I hope you all will too :^)
If you feel the need to scream now that there's confirmation of an end to the show, that's all good. Just try not to freak people out into thinking the fandom will implode and cease to exist (:


:iconsunsethappyplz: Also, season 9 hasn't even started yet, so quit packing your bags. goon.

Yeah. People are freaking out fast. We already so "So long MLP" video and tributes. *chuckles* They should wait AFTER the show ended. Eager much.

Awesome work. With that bit lip that imply some shyness. Natural Flutters then.

Absolutely. It’s best if we all don’t perpetually dread the end throughout the entire next season =P

Thank you, cajobif! Glad you like it ^^

It would be like with a dying friend knowing its days are counted. You have to enjoy everyone one of these while it lives and lasts.

Then you mourn and cry when it's gone.

I can't get a better allegory. We'll know how the fans of Adventure Time felt last year. And I was a fan.

My pleasure Vanilla. Told you. You do great pieces. Keep going.

Lovely Fluttershy you have there, and it's great you've given her some clothing despite it being only a portrait. The greenish colour suits her well. ^^

What's this?! You're going back to refine your drawing techniques in hope that you'll be able to draw ponies even more rectangularly?! I am so happy for you, Vanilla! ^^

... Yeah. Let's face it, Vanilla. Drawing and/or painting ponies is an integral part of our lives by now. Similar to you, I don't see myself stopping any time soon (So you don't have to worry about not seeing any more Shimmy from me). =P

Yes, I am honing my rectangle drawing skills so that my ponies shall have a strong, rectangular foundation~

Glad you've sold your soul too! Keep those Shimmys coming Huffy (:

Oof I'm loving this one, especially that hair it looks so well shaded and volumetric (idk if that's how to describe it lol but it looks epic! :) )

Keep it up! 

*meanwhile I seem to have forgotten how to draw/basic shade*

Aww, Cute Flutters! I'm glad I started watching this show early on and it was fun ride all the way through. Definitely got me through some hard and tragic times. The show may end but the pony must go on!

Absolutely! Glad the show has helped you through tough times. It’s had a positive impact on a lot of people, and I think it’ll have a lasting effect on many more even after it ends. And of course we’ll always be able to enjoy the community, fanwork, and past episodes ^^

And I'll be here for the ponies too, so looking forward to many happy ponies together with you!
The less people treat canon seasons stopping as "time to forget about pony", the better off and happier we'll be. Even if G5 ain't good and won't gel with us, we'll still always have our FiM G4. The past couple of years, the experience of other fandoms proved that we the fans can and will endure even if franchises get terribly mishandled, and we'll always have things that are dear to our heart to be fans of, and even continue to grow in numbers just as every major fandom that came before does. And there're few things I've seen more worthy of drawing and being a fan of than ponies.
Fine work as always, maker. And fine thinking too.

Absolutely. The show might have started it all, but it doesn’t mean we have to end with it. It’s given us more than enough characters and content to keep going, and similar to what you mentioned, we’ve survived the numerous controversial directions that the show has taken over the years and we’re still going strong ^^
Thank you for the comment!

I'm only imploding and ceasing to exist myself.
"Also, season 9 hasn't even started yet, so quit packing your bags. goon."
Are people leaving now? Before s9?

Anyway, about the art.
Absolutely adorable.

Has your process changed with the practice since you last made one of these? www.deviantart.com/vanillaghos…
If so, would be interesting to see the new phases if there are any. If you feel like it.
