Commission 1 of 2 for :iconpuddinandpie88:
A portrait of Applejack and her trusty dog Winona.

I'm always up for painting best pony. First time I ever drew Winona though.


Before anyone asks, the brush I used is here [link] Make sure to thank him for making it! It's a great brush.

I really enjoy how you portrayed Applejack and Winona in this. A very adorable, loving bond!
The composition you drew this piece in reminds me of a bookmark too or some sort of small poster you'd hang in a room. Simple background in the artwork, yet effective. :nod:

Also, thank you for linking to the brush you used! I was playing with it earlier to see what would come out of it.

Thanks dude!
Commissioner just wanted a portrait, not entirely sure why I added a background for it. Good to know it worked out nicely!

No problem! I get asked quite a lot, thought I'd pre-empt them.
Have fun with it?

You're welcome! And the background certainly wraps it all together.

Definitely having fun with the brush, but I'm not use to using textured digital brushes when painting, so it feels strange to me. Takes some time getting use to I suppose.
Just out of curiosity, when you create pictures like these, do you start off with a traditional pencil sketch of the characters and then you import it into photoshop for colouring? Or is the overall piece done digitally?

Oh definitely, it does take some acclimation, I found it rather difficult at first. Still do, occasionally, especially with vastly different colours or values.

I used to scan in pencil sketches, but I don't bother anymore. I just sketch straight into photoshop. I didn't like doing that at first, but it saves time and effort, and my scanner is old and totally preparing to die at some point. So, all digital.
