This is my first submission for the DA Artist Training Group’s week 8 theme: draw a seasonal pony. I’ve been wanting to do a Winter Wrap Up Twilight drawing for a while now and this theme gave me a good excuse to actually go ahead and do that. As always, I was aiming to do something adorkable and my initial thought was to have her having a Pinkie Pie moment and bouncing around like a goof. But then I realized an even better Pinkie Pie moment was when she was rolling around in the grass in Feeling Pinkie Keen. So Twilight’s Pinkie Pie moment is her rolling around in the snow.
Something about her snout ended up looking off between the actual drawing and the scanning. I think it’s because I seem to have lost a little bit of my lighter shading in general when scanning it in. Oh, well. This is probably among my best, if not my best pencil work piece to date. Overall, everything just felt right. I’m particularly proud of how the shading on the saddle and the scarf turned out.
