Turn That Frown Upside Down!

Or is an upside down smile a frown? Doesn't matter! Derpy wants you to smile and says hiya :iconderpyhappyplz:

A mix of reasons I did this. Besides that Derpy is adorable and super fun to draw.

1- I told :iconderpyfan123: I would since I missed her birthday and she (obviously) loves Derpy. So here you go my friend! Hope you like it!
2 - My friends and I have this prompt per week challenge thing (which I've clearly somewhat neglected) and this came from thinking of what to draw for that.
3 - A classmate of mine was drawing ponies in my room so I wanted to.

Oh wow. I absolutely adore the soft coloring you put in your drawings. It's absolutely wonderful.

Oh my thank you! :heart:
It mostly happens that way because I paint the lines on the same layer as the fill so it all blends together. I like doing it like that because it resembles when I paint with real materials more. Glad you like it!

Whoa. Really? I can see how that would achieve the effect but that's really impressive. I think I'd start pulling hairs out if I tried that.

The shading is also really nice too. Do you use the brush tool in Sai for your coloring? The texture is really familiar.

Haha I just come from a traditionalist background so I'm used to everything being permanent. Rather than erasing, I learn to just paint over it.

Thank you! Yes I love SAI! I use the brush tool on varying settings. I usually switch between the Bristle and Spread. The combination of the two usually give my what I need.

Rage. Puddles of tears. Bacon. John Williams.
I mean, I don't know. Same way your paintings always have perfect texture and impressionist brush strokes: magic that I could never understand? 
Oh well thank you my dear friend! I'm glad you like it! :heart:
