MLP: FiM – Twilight Crazy Night of Studying

Decided to do another Twilight Sparkle portrait and I more or less took the pose directly from Sonic Rainboom where she’s thanking the girls for helping her clean up after a crazy night of studying.

I wanted this drawing to be an exercise in shading with the darker pencils, so I restricted myself to shading with my 4B and my HB where the 4B wasn’t practical. I still had to use the 2H in a very select amount of places, but overall I managed to stick with the 4B. And the result turned out okay, I guess? I definitely did better on the hair and the eyes really leant themselves themselves to being shaded by the 4B. But other than that, I took a while getting the hang of using the darker pencils and even after I started to ‘get it,’ the drawing still didn’t turn out all that great and I’m not really sure why. I suppose it’s one of those cases where I’m going to have to do a close analysis of other peoples’ pencil work.
