Well, this is more shading practice that I spent a bit too long on. My own fault, though, since I arbitrarily chose a random placement for the light source and in conjunction with the pose, the drawing became quite difficult. I almost left the tears out when doing the initial sketch because Twilight looked pretty happy and adorable without them. However, I decided to stick with the original plan. The tears didn’t turn out great, but I guess at least i got to practice attempting them. The pose itself is from episode 2 where Twilight has discovered the wonders of friendship (yay!).
Anyway, I pretty much had to do the opposite of what I normally do shading wise, which threw me off a bit (the snout was back to kicking my butt here). The results are kind of weird, but I think it still more or less works. I have a feeling I may have neglected or misplaced some portions of the shading, though. I just can’t put my finger on it.
