This is my second submission for the DA Artist Training Group’s week 4 theme: draw a pony inspired by a song.
Well, Pinkie to the rescue again with her 4th wall breaking to keep my comic within theme by being inspired to action by the battle theme that only she could hear (I was actually playing some game battle music from when I started drawing the panel with Pinkie onward. I believe the playlist was on Deperate Struggle from the FF13 OST). I wasn’t particularly on the ball tonight. I messed up the hair a lot, especially, for some reason, on Fluttershy. I got it mostly fixed eventually, but it took a while. And I’m pretty sure Dashie’s buck kick still looks off. I haven’t drawn faraway ponies in a while and I think it really shows at the start of the aerial battle. I couldn’t put any kind of detail on the wings without them mutating into something unrecognizable. Way more action than dialogue today too and this trend will likely continue for the next couple pages that I do unless the theme drastically alters the direction for me.
