This is my second submission for the DA Artist Training Group’s week 8 theme: draw a seasonal pony.
Fewer panels this time, but the larger panels do give me more freedom to make the scenes look better. Despite being extremely tired, all the poses just worked out for me and this is probably some of the most dynamic stuff I’ve done with a comic page thus far. I think I did this in record speed too, clocking in just over 90 minutes for completion. I also tried going back to the more simplistic wings from the show and they don’t bug me quite as much anymore. I’m a little bit on the fence now, although I’ll likely go back to the more complex style.
Oh and that last panel where I have Applejack in the lumber jack hat and Dashie in the Santa hat features some of my favourites among expressions I’ve drawn to date.
